Unhappy Any Brits in the Idaho area?

Been here two months now with my wife (US citizen) and newborn daughter. I don't have any of my own friends here and don't really know how to make friends any more.

I moved from Bradford, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom and would be interested in meeting up with any Brit (or American) in the Idaho area.

I don't drive or work yet (currently adjusting status), so we could meet up for a couple of drinks if you know a decent bar. Or something else, I'm easy going!

Comment or PM me!

Hello mate, how're you? I'm James, have been living in Pocatello, Idaho for ten years... Probably would've gotten less time for murder... Anyway, drop me a line if you want...

Didn't think anyone would reply to this! Haha, is that a stab at Pocatello or Idaho? I'm liking it here (Nampa) at the moment, lots of open space.
Submitting the paperwork for AOS tomorrow (been waiting on forms), how long did it take you to reach different stages of the process?

I suppose it is a bit of a stab... 'Twas in jest though... I'm used to living in London, and after ten years I'm still not used to the small town thing. For me, when I first came over, before I got my full green card I had a temporary work permit... I got that after being here for six months. My social security card took a little longer, my wife and I ended up going to the senators office and he hurried it along. I think we waited another three months on top of the six, went to the senators office and had the social security card within a fortnight. How long have you been waiting for yours? Would you rather text back and forth rather than going through here? If so I shall message you my number.

Ah, I'm from Yorkshire so I'm a bit more used to the small town kinda thing.

We've just sent off the paperwork today via overnight. Hopefully there won't be any mistakes, we were rather meticulous about it. Guess we will know when they get it via text.

Did you have any trouble staying past the 90 days with a pending application?

If they take longer than 5 month I will be going places to get stuff sorted, as 5 month is the maximum wait for the Arizona office where we filed. Hopefully there's no delays though, I don't feel right not working. That's why I'm cleaning, fixing things, cooking, looking after my daughter whilst we live with the mother in law; just to feel useful. Kinda at a loss without a job or being able to drive.

I don't have a US number at the moment, if I can still add that and chat over WhatsApp that would be fine fella.

Didn't have any problems staying... I think that we filed an extension to my visa... I'll take a look through my paperwork and check for you. For some reason I can't send you a personal message yet, apparently I have to post in other forums before I can... Anyways, my number is 2087059612, I've got whatsapp on my phone. I hear you about not working... That was awful. I kept myself busy doing the housework like you... I also did a bit of carpentry too in my father in laws workshop, made the missus a few pieces of furniture. It helped to kill the time. For the most part though, getting my green card and social security number was a doddle... The waiting was the worst part. Feel free to message me anytime, I'm off of work for the time being, had a car crash whilst I was at work, messed my back up a bit. I'm kinda missing the NHS, by now I'd have had MRI'S and the doctors would have a bit more of an idea what's wrong... I suppose that's a bit of a warning for you... The workmans compensation thing over here has quite a bit of red tape to deal with!

Didn't expect to see many Yorkshiremen in ID! I'm from Halifax myself, moving to Eagle in March 2016. If you still check this site, drop me a PM!

I'm moving to Meridian from Oxfordshire I the next couple of months if my K visa gets approved.

Be good to meet you guys if you're still around the area or still check this but I'll let you guys know nearer the time!

Is that Suffolk UK as thats where i'm from prior to moving to Florida 15 years ago.
I've visited Idaho a few times as that's where the US side of my family lives, near Twin Falls. Can't say i'd love the winters there though!
