Moving to northern Idaho, suggestions?

Moving out to Idaho from Indiana in the next month or so, looking at areas between CDa and Spokane. Seems like Spokane valley or Post falls area is nice. Trying to not get too far from decent sized cities, my wife didn't want to be an hour out in the sticks

Washington doesn't have state income tax which would be nice. Looks like the county around there might require emissions test or inspections when I bring the Jeep. Idaho seems free of that except around Boise so no worries there.

Thanks for any suggestions
Jeff

I think there are a few members of Exiled Offroad up there. This is our thread. I think ChiliPalmer is the guy you're looking for.

I honestly am not active in offroading much anymore. There are lots of Forest Service roads to drive on (of course at this time of the year they might be a bit impassable). There are also timber company lands around Rathdrum mountain that you can drive on for a small fee. As far as ORV specific areas with technical stuff, there is not much going on in the area (that I know of).

There is a club in the area but I can't tell you much about them.

Hey sounds like the thread for me to chime in on. The wife and I are looking at Old Town. Will be looking for Jeeples and hams to get to know. I am a kicking and screaming unhappy import to the P.R.K. (The Peoples Republic of Kalifornia.) The wife is part of a pioneer family to the very rural area of the north of the state. We will be very excited to finally get out of here. Hope we can find people willing to give us a chance when they see the bad plates. We will be getting rid of them as soon as possible! So trails and already seeing some frome areas kinda near where we are looking. On Veterans disability so not the tipical rich, rude, snobby Kalifornian that seems to be the ones putting a bad taste into the mouths of Idahoans. Is that the right term? The Idahoans part. Well we will not be ready for about a year and we will be taking at least a month and maybe two to look around and investigate the area as well as look at homes. Small rural town but need to be a driveable distance to the V.A. hospital in Spokane, even during winter if needed.
How sticky are they on smog, wheele coverage and lift? I want to make sure that my YJ will be streetable after I tear down and build it up.
Thanks for any input. I want to be close to good fishing spots too! I hear that isn't hard up there.
