Have you looked at the local chamber of commerce websites? Sometimes, just to get a feel for the place, checking the craig's list listings is a good too - for housing, to see what things people are selling etc.

I'm afraid I'm not from WY, so I don't have any solid info about it, but thought I'd throw some ideas out there.

Are your hub's papers signed so you know for sure that you can transfer states? Or is he off paper now?

Riverton & Lander are nice areas. Riverton has quite a bit of agriculture and a nice community college. Lander is a pretty area, I think, with the mountains up behind it. There is a lot of outdoorsy recreation such as rock climbing in the Lander area. I think Riverton is within the Wind River Indian Reservation if I remember correctly. Not positive but I think the newspaper is the Riverton Ranger. You might try reading it online to get a feel for the place.
It is about a 2 hour drive across the windswept high plains with no services to get to Rawlins from Riverton. It's a well maintained road, though, just some pretty remote country.
The schools tend to be pretty good out here, so that's a plus. :-)
Laramie is one of the more vibrant communities that would be a little closer. It's a university town.
Good luck with your move!
Sun's gonna shine....someday...
