Well, it's near Bear Lake which is in both Utah and Idaho. It's a buyer's market right now. You gotta remember that winter lasts about 6 months up there at 6000ft. Personally I'd buy in Idaho. Lower taxes and higher speed limits on secondary roads. Utah loves to paint double yellow lines in too many places. Plus the campgrounds are kept up much nicer in Idaho. Bear Lake is pretty nice and you could also compete in the yearly "Raspberry Queen" contest.

Lots of gorgeous meth labs.
Don't worry. We have our fair share of those too. Few towns escape the scourge of meth. Small towns are particularly attractive to meth producers.

Have you been to the Salmon area?It doesn't look like I will get to see it until next Spring.There is a hunting lodge on 33 acres for sale there along with an adjacent 6 acre property that has a fully stocked trout pond and log home.It's something to think about. With 6 months of winter it would definately be a part time retreat.The Rasberry Queen sounds interesting but I will have to pass on that one.Maybe Danica Patrick will compete totally naked there next year. She can throw a hissy fit when she doesn't win.Naked of course.

I hate to admit this on a public forum but Boisie is surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of miles of some of the best motorcycle roads in the world. If you come to Idaho and have time check it out. I'm seriously considering retiring there.

Every region has at least one scenic drive.Sounds like some great riding.
