Hey guys, this is kind of a long shot. I am lookin for some new work and found a job in Omak. Does anyone know anything at all about the town? It seems a few hours away from ANYTHING.

Omak is the big city in Okanogan County.

I've driven through it on the way to see the Grand Coulee Dam, where the main entertainment is the laser light show during the summer.

The closest reasonable-sized city is Wenatchee, about two hours away.

I hope you're the outdoorsy type.

Decent hunting for deer, wild asparagas grows along side the road. Not much else.

I had to take a guy to the hospital there a few years ago, because he broke his ankle firefighting in the Okanogan - Wenatchee National Forest north of Winthrop. Seemed like a nice town.

Been there once. I know a guy who owns a unibomber shack there. He also burned down half the county once.

His neighbors are in to Karaoke, ATVs, and swinging.

Thank goodness my shack is on the other side of 97 from his...

I know that Corksucker...

I sent 14 fire trucks with crews, to put out his little fire, and he still bitched about it.

Drove through there a several times over the last few years on fishing trips.

They have a well-equipped Super Wal-Mart there.

In my experience the lake fishing for trout/panfish/triploids is pretty spectacular from roughly Omak northward...especially after the lake-ice thaws in late May.

I really like the areas around Tonasket...the areas around Wannacut and Spectacle lakes specifically.

The hunting isn't too bad and the freshwater fishing is pretty good as well.

Great place to bring your kids fishing as there is lots of hatchery fish action that holds their attention.

Some day soon I would love to own a decent-sized chunk of recreational property over there.

Omak is where Hope goes to die.

Conconully is a place you go if you only have 6 months to live. Every day there seems like a fucking eternity.

I never lived there but, I've been there enough that I don't need a road map to find anything. PM me if you want, I'll be happy to answer questions if I can. Hot in the summer there, cold in the winter. The primary industries are apples and lumber. If you like to fish or hunt, you'll like it.
