Some small city with high speed internet and a large enough lot to have a large "Kitchen garden".....but not living next door to a pit-bull puppy mill or anything like that....

Don't ask Obama. You'll just get a list of cemeteries.

Why was “.but not living next door to a pit-bull puppy mill ...” a requirement?

Obama tells us dog tastes good. Weren’t you taking notes when he said that?

I’d find a way to live cheaply in Las Vegas. It’s a vibrant city with lots of access to everything. If you want to live close, but not in Vegas, how about Pahrump?

I used to live in Carson City and nearby, also in Las Vegas.

Where will I retire?

Australia.

Too many latinos in Nevada.

Pahrump?

...man, then I’d be out at Front Sight every weekend for fire arms training. Pretty windy area, but growing and inexpensive and 45 minutes from LV... good possible choice.

ymmv

I’ve been perusing Texas and Oklahoma this AM.

Try here: http://www.landwatch.com/

It’s a great site, I typed in “10 acres Choctaw county Oklahoma” and it gave me several options. Before discovering the “10 acres”, it included in-town lots when I searched on price.

Many SLTahoe folks moved down there as the lake was too expensive. I have a few friends down there, and they love it!

Possibly because they are also sometimes meth factories? Just guessing from what is scattered around Barstow, where they likes their Harleys and Pit Bulls.

Why stuck on Nevada? Check out Arizona... have a good friend who just left this week to retire in Pinetop... A gorgeous spot about 3 1/2 hours Northeast of Phoenix. I like to ski and need to be near a decent sized airport.... Elko, NV might be a good bet as it is only a few hours west of Salt Lake City.

Regrettably, those meth factories are everywhere.

One was about 1/4 mile from my brother’s house — out in the country.

Another was 2 blocks from me in my town of 14k. It was across the street from an elementary school.

Pioche and the surrounding areas. Lots of open spaces, cheap property, right in the middle of great camping, fishing, and hunting....about 200 miles NNE of Vegas.

Walker Lake near Hawthorne is a nice area, depending on what you're looking for.

Yearington is a small town that might be worth looking into, again, depending on what you're looking for.

Where will I retire? Australia.

You do know that the citizens of Australia have been disarmed, and that they don't have a 2nd Amendment, right?

Thats not entirely true....

With my skills I would design a better weapon than the AR, something like the Metalstorm.

Of which is built in Brisbane.

You can own guns in Oz, you can make guns in Oz, the government is at peace, no gun grabber mobs there, no nosey neighbors looking for a reward.

My sis was there for lot’s of years while I was still at the Lake. We are thinking about maybe heading back that way.

Sounds to me like you're saying that you can get away with breaking Australia's gun ban laws if you're careful.

We rented an RV about 6-7 years ago and ended up spending a couple of days at a campsite next to Walker Lake (caught a nice Lahontan Trout too), all night long we heard explosions coming from the Army depot, I mean big ones!

I don't know if they were just depleting aged munitions or what but it was surly an experience.

Re: “I’ll second Minden/Gardnerville.”

I checked that area out a dozen years ago, but in short order so many Kalifornicans (with their zoning crapola) had moved there that it lost its low-cost and unrestricted rural attraction. Just another over-priced suburb of CA now!

“I cannot think of one good reason to ever visit Nevada”

The best one you need to know is that its the fastest way to get OUT of Kalifornica, exc for extreme N and NE areas of the state which aren’t really CA at all! Those folks want to secede and form the “State of Jefferson”!

I may be mistaken, but I think almost all weapons are now banned in AU. If you grow tomatoes for your family, they might allow you to own a single-shot .22 to kill rabbits so you wouldn’t starve........

I don't think you're mistaken, but someone will probably chime in here with the precise facts of the Aussie gun ban.

Personally, I couldn't even begin to contemplate relocating to a country that forbids its citizens from exercising one of nature's most basic human rights.

Thanks - good to know. We have been looking for a new community since moving to the PNW and watching it become invested with the political cancer of retiring school system lifers from California. To our dismay, many of the places I have admired for sometime are going that way. Kalispell, MT and Jackson Hole to name a couple.
