Half of California has already moved to North Idaho (the other half is on its way). Specifically what used to be the little town of Coeur d'Alene (though it's happening all over the region, nothing's sacred anymore). Money-hungry developers think this is the greatest place ever and have nearly obliterated the surrounding prairies and mountains with crackerbox houses and artifical lakes - or conversely, mansions only the extremely wealthy can afford. ALL HAIL THE ALMIGHTY BUCK! Coeurdifornia now has box stores, road rage and traffic jams, while cigarette boats and mosquitoes (personal watercraft) befoul our once clean and peaceful lakes. (After thirty years I've come to hate it and will be out of here as soon as possible. I'm going to... um, Death Valley. Don't follow me. It's not that great. Really!)
"Come to Coeurdifornia and (with thousands of other spectators) see nature on the run, up close and personal!"
