For the record it's Miles City.
I think you may want to do more research before you pack up and transplant yourself from southern California to eastern Montana, or anywhere else in the high plains or Midwest for that matter. You likely will not get the kind of pay you've mentioned earning; housing is often lower, but don't be fooled- taxes, energy, insurance, food, the cost to commute/travel, and the other expenses of life can be substantially higher. We do not have mass transit, if you live in town it's not much of an issue. We don't have much for school busing. The high school does not have a breakfast or lunch program. Regardless of what anyone says the weather can be miserable- I've been here in Miles City 17 years, and in Montana 23; when it's 20 below zero or lower it's damned cold and keeping any house warm isn't cheap, especially the older housing stock prevalent in MC. In the summer, most summers anyways, 90-100+ is pretty normal. Did I mention we occasionally get 100 degree temperature changes in a 24 hour period- it happen, rarely, but it happens.
Not to burst anyone's bubble or discourage anyone from taking up residence here, but those are just facts of life in eastern Montana.
