I live in the East but am part of well-financed movement in the Midwest, and I am interested in knowing who is active in Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa.  For those of us who do not live there, the pay scale is actually pretty high, the cost of living pretty low.  I've spent the past 3 years here and have found it a pretty cool place to live.  This is not an advertisement, just a heads up and an invitation to talk more specifically with folks who might want to find out more. See More
