According to U-Haul, Idaho was the No. 14 growth state for 2017, when the company analyzed the past year’s U.S. migration trends.

Arriving trucks accounted for 50.5 percent of all one-way U-Haul traffic in from Idaho, which was ranked No. 7 in growth for 2016 and No. 21 for 2015.

Texas was the No. 1 growth state for the second year in a row. Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina and Tennessee rounded out the top five, and North Carolina ranked seventh, continuing a strong growth movement in the Southeast.

Boise, Coeur D’Alene and Nampa were among Idaho’s leading cities for more arrivals than departures of one-way U-Haul trucks. Find U-Haul stores and neighborhood dealers in Idaho at

I was watching Investigation Discovery channel this weekend and they had the story “Murder in the Heartland” about the 2012 killing of teacher Elizabeth Baune in Payette. Sad and also interesting. The good thing is, the murderer was caught.
