Just moved to Idaho from Washington

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Just moved to Garden City from Maple Valley, WA.

Got rid of my Dakota and picked up a really clean 2002 Dodge

Cummins with 86K on it. It already had an Edge with Attitude

and cold air intake. After doing some homework decided to get

the FASS fuel system and 4" exhaust. I really like the way the

truck performs.

Next step will be turbo and valves and I'd like to put a KORE

Chase kit on it at some point (when I win the lotto ; ).

I spent most of this past summer in Boise and I was hooked with

the nice weather and general laid back attitude of the area. Not

to mention NO Seattle traffic to deal with :cool:

Looking forward to some real snow and getting to know the

area.

Thanks for the great forum and I look forward to meeting a

few of you folks here locally.

Greg

Welcome to the site And come to the dyno I want to see this truck. And why turbo and Valves? I can understand the turbo but why valves? And have you considered twin turbos?

Nice weather in the summer, are you insane? I've never found 110* to be nice. It's about perfect right now though. I wish it'd stay like this year round!

Doesn't snow much in the winter other than in the mtns and up north.

Umm Nate....Mtn Home weather IS differenet than here in the Boise area: Boise vs Mtn Home. Mtn Home is typically quite a bit warmer in the summer.

Yes, we don't usually get a lot of snow. Last winter was the most snow on the ground since I moved here in 2004.

+1 Nate! That's why I gotta get back to Alaska. Summer highs in the 60's are MUCH better than the high 90's/low 100's!

Have you ever spent a summer, if you can even call it that, on the wet side of Washington?

Thanks to all for the warm welcome, I appreciate it!

While I do admit the heat in the height of summer in Boise is a bit

much for this Washintonian, it beats the heck out of all the rain in

Seattle. Here's some numbers I pulled off of a search:

SEATTLE - Those new to the area this summer, with its seemingly endless sunshine, might be surprised that Seattle only averages 58 sunny days a year. That's seventh-least in the U.S. of cities that report official climate data, and as you might expect, other Pacific Northwest cities dot the list.

But I bet you can't guess the least-sunny place in the U.S.

With just 48 sunny days a year, it's Elkins, West Virginia, just edging out Astoria, Oregon which has 50. As for the rest of Seattle's days, we average 226 cloudy days (4th most in the U.S.) and 81 partly cloudy days. Of all those days, we get 155 days of rain a year (we've had 97 so far this year.)

I grew up in the Seattle area all my life and I was sick of the

weather. It's beautiful in the summer, when we get sun, but

the rest of the year is gloomy, gray and depressing.

I will definitely make it to the Dyno run on the 9th. It would be

great to meet some of you in person and get some helpful advice

on which direction to go with my Dodge.

It looks like MM is right by BT Diesel? Pat Luskey installed my FASS

system and exhaust. Seemed to me he really knows his stuff.

John, Duvall is a nice area as well, nice to know I'm not the only

one to bail on Washington :cool:

You are right Jeff, Ravensdale is just up the road from where I

lived. Used to ride dirt bikes there all the time when I was a kid.

Thanks again everybody, see some of you on the 9th!

Never lived in WA, but I know all about rain. Anchorage gets pretty much the same weather as WA does. They had around 10 sunny days last summer from what my friend was saying.

Maine is where I grew up and it's wet as well... lots of swampland. TONs of snow in the winter. 17ft last year!

Shoot I never heard of people watering their lawns or crops before moving out here!

I think you mean 45 days of sun :D

But when the weather is nice in W Wash its the best... but when its ugly its ugly..

I am currently trying to get my buddies to move down. When I hear about the cost of living and traffic it makes me sick.

I was born and raised in the Portland/ Vancouver area. Sure I miss alot of the green lol but don't miss all the rain. It's beautiful here. I've been in Mtn. Home since 1994 and I could never go back to WA. I love it here
