High Humidity in Casper this last summer was about 45%, most times was around 10 to 25%
at 45% we got a little rain.

Here in the NE, the summer humidity ranges from 30 to 40% most of the time, with occasional dips. Winter is very dry. The humidity right now outside is 16% and has already been as low as 5% this year. It is hard to maintain a healthy humidity indoors in winter, especially if you use wood heat. But it can be done. I keep the humidity around 60% as much as possible in the upstairs bathroom where I have the orchids.

  A/C in the summer is important in Iowa during the humid days but I hear Wyoming doesn't suffer as much of that.  Dare to dream...

I don't have any central heating, much less central "A/C" - I do have a small window A/C I bought the first year because it got pretty hot for a while in August, but I've only run it a few times since then. With box fans, I manage quite well in the summer. The humidity is so low that even temps in the low 100s are not much of a problem. But then, remember that I came from the desert of So. Cal. and never had A/C there at all. :)

Trees!!!  Running water... well, as long as I can have a well dug.  But yes, I will want trees.

Going off grid is a goal.  A large propane tank to heat water and run refrigeration items.  A/C in the summer is important in Iowa during the humid days but I hear Wyoming doesn't suffer as much of that.  Dare to dream...

And, BTW, if you want "trees" and running water, we've got that too... but it is more expensive. :)  Here is a place that's for sale... but it is very large.

Now THAT is elbow room!  Sigh...
Maybe when I retire and the kids are out of the house I will finally build the log cabin my SHW has been dreaming of.  If I build it in Wyoming then I might get her out there!

Lots and LOTS of room here. Quite a few 35+ acre places available too. Most have nothing on them. Some have no utilities either, so they are much less expensive than places closer to "civilization." If she's willing to live at least partially off the grid, you could make out like a bandit. :)

Here is a picture of the view out off my back deck...

the big cities here are smaller than most cities, which I am enjoying.

Heh... I love the shocked response when I tell folks in other places that this county has only one "city," and it has fewer than 2,000 regular  residents. Only about 5,000 people in the whole county.

Now THAT is elbow room!  Sigh...

Plenty of land here still.

may want to think about getting the land now, and build on it as you can, with time, cash, etc.

so when you do give up the rat race, you will have a place mortgage free.

but that is just my .02  :twocents:

Exactly ML!  Who is doing the actual audit?  Better not be a fed.gov goon.  I say open up the books to the general public.

Wow...  soon making brief eye-contact with members of the opposite sex will be a crime.  Oh wait, we won't be able to tell what gender they are until we ask what they want to be identified as!  But then that question will be deemed offensive so don't even talk to anyone.  Just stare at your phone and go about your sad, pathetic, lonely lives.  Good little slave, good!
