Much less its a better place to raise our children and give us a better family life, which is the primary driver.

I am pretty sure I would want to live on the West side of the Cascades, with some elevation. Definitely NOT on the Coast. Although land prices seem pretty high there especially compared to just over the mountain.

But jobs are an issue of course, we still need a handful more years of both of us working before we can start to cut back so I think it will initially be a move to the Portland/Seattle area and renting while we search for the land.

I assume as you travel south in the Valley that the temps starts to go up? Where do you lose the Valley effect, south of Eugene I think?
Yeah, do come here!

If you like commies and socialists teaching your kids everything BUT what they will need to survive in life after school, Western WA and OR are the place for you!!

And the gun grabbing laws are getting much stronger now too, so you won't have to worry about all those shootings that go on elsewhere.

Oh, and you can't trap anymore in WA. or bait bears or use dogs to hunt bears anymore, so the moles in your yard will be safe as the WDFW still prosecutes commercial pest operators setting traps for Moles (it's true, look it up). OR has passed some bear hunting bans too if memory serves.

OR also throws you in jail for having ponds, capturing rain water from your roof, etc. And Oregon's governor ordered a hit on folks that were protesting and traveling to a meeting in another county with law enforcement.

And the best part of it all is that if you are not a liberal, your vote just gets flushed down the toilet every voting season, so you won't matter to anyone, won't be in their way, and won't slow them down as they pitch right off the ol' cliff to insanity.

Pretty much if you want to get a peek at where the powers that be want to take you, watch some of the video coming out of Venezuela these days. As they run out of OPM (other peoples money) the crackpots running the West Coast states LOVE new people coming in. Just make sure you bring your money with you. That's really all they really want.

Tongue in cheek?? You bet, but not nearly as hard as you might think. Good luck.

Kalos,
I hope you like kombucha, tai chi, non-GMO food, and organic wine. Do you take your shoes off when you enter someone's house? Are you anti-logging? Do you want public lands to be cattle free? You can start drinking hot water for breakfast and going to your local men's meeting on Wed nights. Welcome to Oregon where people don't tan, they rust.

Knowing what I know from living here there is no way in H E L L I would suggest anyone moving here, especially West of the Cascades, and especially if they are thinking about 'a good place to 'raise the children'. I can't imagine a worse climate to raise children in, unless you want them indoctrinated to having zero critical thinking skills and simply lockstep with all the other droids out there.

Moving to hippiestan (tacoma/seattle) area in a few weeks. Spent some time there a few years back on a contract job. You won't find natural beauty to match it. Don't draw attention to yourself and learn to smile and nod, while preparing yourself for the areas potential calamities. Just as you would anywhere else. And besides....can you say fly fishing and smoked salmon???

Agreed completely. If your looking to have children educated....the PNW is NOT the place to be.

Well...here is some insight from a Native Oregonian. I have lived here my entire life.

I spent the first 18 years of my life on the coast. The actual coastline is beautiful, but finding a day that you can enjoy without a jacket is very rare. Mostly those days pop up in the Spring and Fall. Summer sucks because when it gets hot in the Willamette valley it pulls the fog into the coast. Go inland 20 miles and you get very nice weather. Mild temperatures, good growing seasons, but it does rain....a lot. For an example, look at Coquille or Myrtle Point (this is where I grew up)

If you go east of the coast range the weather and politics are wildly different. Roseburg and the Rogue valley tends to be conservative but it gets hot in the Summer, cold and wet in the Winter. Go North to Eugene (and further up the I5 corridor) and it gets very liberal. The weather is wet, humid and can have a couple weeks of high temperatures. Summer usually lasts from July to October (great growing season), not much snow (except this year of course). I lived in Eugene for 25 years and recently moved. Just couldn't take the politics and people any more. If you have allergies, stay out of the Willamette valley. There are some nice smaller communities outside of the cities.

We now live on the "dry" side of the Cascades in a small town south of Bend. While we do get snow, big snow years (like this year) only happen about every 15 years or so. The sun generally comes out every day. We do have cold weather (high desert) and will have a couple weeks a year over 90, but it is dry heat so it doesn't bug me that much. No mold here at all. Growing food requires some extra work. (It gets in the 30's, even in August). Over here is pretty much a different world compared to Portland/Eugene. Kids still walk around with their rifles, ride their dirt bikes, go hunting, camping, etc. It isn't unusual to see side arms open carried. Deschutes county sheriff's are awesome.

I can't speak to schools because I don't have children but I would home school no matter where I lived

Droid did it!

Yeah, but parts of Idaho get hotter than the hubs of Hades in the summer and colder than a mother-in-law's heart in the winter. It takes more than acclimatization; it takes a great learning curve to cover the nuances of working and living in the heat, dryness, and the cold.

Western Oregon, on the other hand, is mud management 7 months of the year. The other 5 months, anybody can be a great farmer. But those 7 months of living inside a wet ping-pong ball can even get old for a S.N.O.B.(Society of the Native Oregon Born) Seasonally Affective Disorder (SAD) can be a serious problem for many people here. Some just need the sun, and they will even move to California to get it.
Oregonians are getting used to Californians moving to the freedom and green of western Oregon and then bringing their restrictive government with them. The far left town of Portland controls the State, and people from outside do not understand the draconian nature of the land use restrictions. Contact Oregonians In Action for information.
We aren't California yet, but I'm looking toward getting out from under the clouds and restrictions on private property. This, I might add, after 70 years in this very temperate climate.
Many want to sell out to builders of McMansions, even though the property owner doesn't realize that much more for his land. The money is often made by the developers and builders who quadruple the market value by fighting their way through the permitting processes and parking a structure big enough that the incoming refugee from California can have artificial weather enclosing his acreage, with a park of sorts outside.

Best to do some serious research on this state. It has become ... complicated.
I hope this helps.
Jerry

Not trying to convince you to move to Idaho, yet it does have a more conservative tone to it's laws and politics. Although in all fairness Idaho is a region with an extreme climate. On the Snake river plain it's not uncommon for summer temps to get over 100 degrees and winter temps to get below zero.

Your weapons are legal in every state you'd drive through to get from FL to OR. In fact, if you have a Florida CWL you can carry your pistol in every state on the way, until you cross the border into Oregon. Check out this website, http://www.opencarry.org/ as well as the one I linked for Ferret below for more info.

Lots of states have reciprocity with Oregon. See the above link. It would be useful to have another permit though, to cover all the bases.

Most responses are right on. The mountains seem to be the dividing line for conservatives and the loonies. I have lived in Central Oregon for 18 years. Unfortunately it's becoming more and more liberal as there's a lot of Californian's moving up here.
I noticed the stark contrast one day when I went to Portland. Oregon has several special edition veteran's license plates. All day I was driving around Portland I saw only 2 cars with Vet's plates. Here in Central Oregon you see tons of them. Not that only conservatives choose to serve their country but it's not common that a liberal is willing to die for their country. Being in the military means they'd have to touch one of those icky scary guns!

This is a pretty old post. But I thought I would give you some info on Oregon.

Oregon is turning into California. Lots of CA residents moving here. The state is ruled politically by Portland & Eugene. Both cities are liberal.

This last election (a week or so ago) we ended up with a Extremely Liberal state Governor & a Externally Liberal democrat super majority house & senate. Additionally, 4 good ballot measures all failed. And one bad one passed, to raise taxes.

I fully expect to see gun bans, magazine bans, firearm registration, increased taxes, etc etc with in the next few months. We already have laws on the books that lets a family member or neighbor report you as being "dangerous" and you can get your firearms confiscated with out due process.

You do not want to move to Oregon.

I would agree with most of what was said here...western Oregon has indeed been Californicated, last elections came out terribly and gun issues will surely get worse BUT I would disagree with some of the posts above concerning the wx, etc. Eastern Oregon is NOT Wyoming and is not all desert. The Blue Mts. and the Wallowa Mts. are nothing akiin to desert. We have 4 seasons and yes we get snow off and on thru the winter months but it nothing to get fuzzed up about. Oregonians from the west side talk about Bend area being "eastern Oregon" but the Bend area is NOT eastern Oregon. Bend is central Oregon and is indeed rather dry. Take a look at Pendleton, LaGrande or Baker City and I think you'll be surprised by the mild climate and the conservative culture. If you'd like more info from someone who has lived most of my 69 yrs in EO send me a PM and we can chat more.

Problem is, as "nice" as "parts of" Oregon, or California, or New York, or Washington, or Illinois, or Maryland, etc. are, the entire states are controlled by moronic leftists anti-Americans who have and continue to vote for really self-destructive measures, laws, and people. If you live in any leftists state, you live under oppression.

+1 for more Liberals "dying for their country"!! ('figuratively', of course)

I did not read the entire thread. If you are gay, transgender liberal, please move ASAP
If you are a right-mined Christian conservative I strongly recomend the Ozarks,

Would there be a way you could spend some time in an area for a season or two to see whether you really like it there as well as you think you will?

A poor example from my own past, but perhaps with just a bit of a point...

Back in the 1980s and maybe into the 1990s, I was a "nobody" that listened to talk radio's Bruce Williams. From what I remember, he had a son that played the piano and did some work down on Bourbon Street on the French Quarter in New Orleans. Bruce did an excellent job of romanticizing Bourbon Street for me and making me think I'd like to visit. After all, I play the piano and like it lively. At the time, I lived in Pennsylvania and didn't travel much so my total impression of the place was what I heard on the radio.

Fast forward into the early 2000's and I married a lady from just north of New Orleans. OK. It wasn't all that long before the opportunity came to visit the French Quarter. I was excited. She was skeptical. She lived there for a long time and was familiar. And there were some good spots near Bourbon Street that she took me too... the aquarium, the river walk, cafe du monde... And then, we walked down Bourbon Street. UUGGHHH!!! Smelled like pee, vomit and beer, plus, the place was plastered with porn everywhere, trash everywhere, and a few not so nice drunks thrown in. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I have never wanted to go back, and haven't.

Reading books, even well written and factual ones, is great. But you'll never really get the feel of a place without being there and just experiencing it for a while. Many people would suggest you find a place to rent to start out. At least if you find you made a huge mistake, it's not so hard to get out from under a place. And if you happen to find an area that you really like, being there might just get you familiar enough with the locals to find a better place than you'd likely ever come across just by contacting a realtor out of the blue and show up with a wad of cash and a weekend to find the "perfect place".

Not wanting to rain on your parade. I wish you all the best, where ever life goes.
Your leaving a lot out in your post. Things have changed A LOT in many areas between 1990 and 2000 and mostly not for the better. Bourbon Street might have very well been a 'romanticized' place in 1990. A lot of cities were that have now gone to trash. Portland here in Oregon used to be family friendly as long as you stayed away from North Portland which always had weekly shootouts even back then. It was pretty much Bourbon street today but the regular places people go to IE: Pioneer Mall was an actual mall with things to do that had stores nobody else did,The old Meier and Frank building that got shut down a long time ago and is now uglified to death.

Portland is pretty much a 'boring' place at best now unless all you do is brink beer and then your too passed out to care. Not for me! Great for beer lovers though as that's all that's left to do besides the Portland Zoo I don't know if it's trashed yet. I went there in the early 00s and it wasn't but the experience may be different now.

Is the radio guy still doing his shows? If not that should be a MAJOR clue. Is he still trying to romance the place or has he quietly dropped it? Thyat would mean he is too embarrassed to admit it. Typical left wing response if they have no scapegoat they always just quietly drop things.

There's major flooding all over the world now with our Grand Solar Minimum you can find on the GSM channel news YET not a peep from the media. In my days the media would be showing lots of live coverage and boy is there a lot of opportunities!

Check out the Grand Solar Minimum channel on YT. He is as good or better then how the news used to be before they went on hate campaigns.
