    Utah

    Wife and I are looking at bailing off this sinking ship now that our jobs are no longer tied to this hell hole. One of the places we were eyeing up is Utah, specifically the SLC metro area as we both need to be near a bigger city/industry/large airport for work. I get it probably has the usual big city issues of being expensive and homeless there, but how bad is the LDS there? I used to work with a company based on Ogden, and while they were mostly LDS they were pretty cool. My former employee was telling me you are basically fucked if you arent LDS and want to live and work there, any truth to that? He was 75 and a chicken little... I dont give two shits about booze laws or if the town basically shuts down at 11pm, as I cant really drink anymore and we are hermits lol. I'm more focused on being closer to mountains and outdoor stuff, away from this dump, and closer to wheeling and making enough $$$ to do that and live comfortably. No kids and no plans on having any. Thanks!

      Sounds like you are in a position where literally everything will be better than what you've got now.

      weather won't really be any worse, because of where SLC is, you can stretch out your commute to 1-1/2 hours if you want and live pretty much anywhere or however you want. If you want less commute, then you will be more or less stuck in the sprawl.

      the LDS will ignore you if you ignore them, which is about all you can ask out of people. plenty of stupid laws, but not nearly as bad as IL

          Thanks. I excel at ignoring people and letting them do what they do as long as they leave me alone.

            i've only visited SLC in spurts of weeks over winters and years ago for snowboarding, but grew up around a pretty big mormon area. can they be cult like out there? certainly. I wouldn't walk on to a jobsite and start talking shit about their underwear or life choices or whatever, but that is generally bad form anywhere. it just might get your froze out of a region there Really SLC is big enough that as long as you aren't overly involved in the politics of the day that it doesn't matter.

                Thats what I figured. I'm pretty easy going in person and respect peoples shit. I know all about religious cults, half my wifes family are jehovah witness and I havent fought with them yet LOL!! They stay out of your hair generally.

                  SLC is actually pretty cool anymore. The LDS has loosened up a ton in the last 20 years. Not as many CA migrants as Nevada, not as hot as Arizona, and not as bipolar as Oregon.

                      Not surprising at all. There's about 1.2M people in the metro area.

                            LDS aren’t gonna bother you. As has been said, SLC is way crowded. If you decide to make the move, stay out of West Valley City. It’s the getto of Salt Lake valley. Be prepared for price shock on housing. The whole state is in a building boom and house prices have climbed 20 plus percent a year. It’s crazy! Unemployment was nonexistent before COVID. You might find Utah is unbelievably crowded when it comes to getting away from the hoards of people when trying to recreate. I grew up here so your impression might be different. People are way more rude than they were even a few years ago.
