It's a fantastic place, and if you're under 40, a great experience.
Over 40, maybe not...

But, it was a damn great adventure while it lasted.

And generally it is not economically feasible to install wind generation unless the AVERAGE wind speed is 10 kts or higher.
And every thing that MTV and Gump said is true. You can do very well there, but listen to what the locals have to say and give a lot of deference -- you will find that they do things a little differently up there.
When the heck did a wind farm go in there? I don't remember that.

There's a few cultural differences to master, and attitude with the locals, especially first impressions, go a long ways. Take the time to listen and learn, and don't be too quick to judge intelligence or wisdom. You're gonna be surprised (more ways than one).
