Where are you that half the stores are closed? I could transfer to Idaho with my company but I would literally make less than 25% of what I make here. Some guys did transfer and while the hunting and gun laws are great, a $1800 AR with a $250 SBR stamp, 1k can and another $250 stamp becomes out of reach when your only making $15 an hour and don't get hours every week.
Also, heating the house is very expensive when its -F. Don't get me wrong, Idaho is beautiful and the freedom is still great, but going there thinking the economy is going to be better did not work well for the guys the I know who transferred.
It may work better for you and your circumstances and I hope it does. When retire I will look into moving but I really don't want to freeze my nuts off or shovel snow when I'm old.
