As a transplanted East Coaster, it didn't take long for me to realize that moving to Missoula was not just a great life-style change for me and my family, but that commonly held perceptions by friends from the East Coast were ALL WRONG!...That is ok - because folks back East have no idea how great Montana is until they come and visit our wonderful state.  I came across this interesting piece last night and thought I'd share it again for good measure. "....oh the humanity....."

Gallup recently conducted poll where they asked people across the United States if their state was the best state to live in. And guess what? Montana came on top. 77% of the people polled in Montana said its state was definitely the best state to live in.
