Weldman Posted November 27, 2021 Share Posted November 27, 2021 (edited) Living out here in South Eastern Montana so far off grid the mail only runs here 3 days a week at max (better cancel your Amazon Prime), no building codes, takes over and hour to get to town down 50 miles of rock/clay road, address doesn't show up on Google Maps, nearest neighbor is 3 miles away and typical person lasts only one year before headed back to wherever leaving behind a mess. Cell phone signal is non existent till you get 40 miles from here, no power lines, no water lines, no phone/internet lines, no gas lines and no garbage pickup here. Weather is fun, it can be bright sunny sky and next minute without even a forecast warning a storm blows through with 2 inch hail or sometimes can drop half foot of snow with no warning till last minute. Temperatures can swing about 50 degrees at a time in less than 12 hours, I've personally seen -40 with -60 wind chills and about 115 degrees. The ground can spontaneously combust into a wildfire from the coal seams out here or maybe lightening strike will start one, speaking which if a wildfire is headed your way you won't get a warning from anyone. The winds when they start in the winter/spring or fall they can really rip for a bit. Hope you don't mind ticks as you will get them. Besides those little quirks it's beautiful place here. I am able to type on here cause I climbed a tree and put a directional cell phone booster up! Edited November 27, 2021 by Weldman 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
