I grew up in NJ but I hate FLA so please dont ask my advise on where to move.

So if I wanted to keep the temps moderate, no extremes either way, I should stay on the Western side of the mountains, north of Eugene maybe?

Further south or further east, gives me hotter/colder seasonal extremes?

Might want to read up on the Cascadia subduction zone. The reactions to it range from "that'll never happen, total BS" to "honey! I'm starting the car! Grab the kids and whatever you can carry and be outside in five minutes!"
Not saying I believe it or not, but if you don't know about it, you should.

If you hate gun laws and FUTURE state gun laws, DON'T move to Oregon. Consider Montana, Wyoming, The Dakotas, ANYPLACE else. The liberal virus is spreading rapidly from california and Washington state is just about beyond hope. Oregon will follow unless some mighty upheavals in state law, replacement of state reps, and replacement of the Governor can occur. Do you want to be locked into a house and land in a place that by the time you are too old to move and have your retirement invested has told you , "turn them in, slave. It's not infringement, you can still own muskets like the Founding Fathers did."

Think I'm crazy? Look at HossUSMC's channel on youtube. He lives there. Constant challenges to the Second Amendment. Think twenty years down the line.

If you want moderate temperatures and moderate rainfall, you should think Western Oregon, South of Roseburg. Roseburg/North, you start getting weather like Portland. Think 65" + of rainfall.

Oregon now has a House, Senate, and Governess paid for by Michael Bloomberg. We will likely see gun laws passed similar to CA.

Many of us won't, but we don't have the power to stop unconstitutional laws. The votes are controlled by Portland, one of the most liberal cities in the US.
Usually they pass unpopular laws by some kind of "emergency" connotation, which bypasses any voter input.

I live close to Oregon and visit frequently, yet can't for the life of me see myself actually living there. People wise the eastern half of Oregon leans conservative while the western half leans liberal.

The western half of the state has most of the population so if you are looking to stay on the coast and still get away, then moving south to Ashland or Rogue river would be the place to buy. However, property in southwestern Oregon is expensive.

Eastern Oregon is dry hot and dusty for the most part, although with that comes a lot of elbow room. In a nutshell it is cowboy country. If cattle and ranching is something you'd be interested in the eastern Oregon would be a good choice.

I was born and raised in Portland, and hate the city. It's a liberal cesspool, and it's become extremely expensive. Even the attitude of the city has changed (for the worst) in the last 15-20 years. This isn't a shot at you or anyone else in particular, but the reality is a lot of people have moved here from places like California, Hawaii, etc and they start voting in the liberal policies they liked from their home states. Portland in particular feels like Cali-Lite now.

Much of Western Oregon has a moderate climate. LOTS of rain. It doesn't snow much in winter unless you leave the valley and get up into some altitude. Summers the last few years have been pretty dry. Eastern Oregon is as Peter put it, "cowboy country". There isn't a lot of development out East. The weather in summer is hot/dusty, and chilly in winter.

If you're dead set on moving to Oregon, you can make it happen. I just honestly don't see the appeal. There are lots of better places you could live, especially if you want to own land. Despite the majority of the state being relatively conservative, all the laws are dictated by what Portland decides. I'm not getting political, but check out this picture. It shows a difference in attitudes and shows which counties actually hold the power in the state. I don't think it'll be long before we end up with California like gun laws unfortunately.

Please post honestly, if I am talking about a pipe dream, tell me.

I like the idea of the Western side of the Cascades, near the Willamette but I am not sure of land availability. I believe the Eastern side gets super dry and does not have the Willamette "effect" and gets pretty hot/cold.

I am looking for homestead capable land...



Any help would be great, local resources/realtors, anything.

I5 corridor N/S and the 50 miles inland from the coast are among the most congested in the nation. And growing.

Uber liberal politics, and spreading north from California into Oregon and Washington.

Left leaning anti-gun politics - expect future bans unless dramatic changes in the federal law protecting guns and accessories.

To be more specific as to east and west. The Cascade mountain range is perhaps the simplest way to visualize the division of politics in the state. west of the Cascades is mostly liberal, east of the Cascades is mostly Conservative.

Beautiful state, yet it is a lot like California in that metropolitan areas have a huge influence in state government and the policies they create.

In Columbia County, just outside of Portland, it was very easy.

Just take a class, then go to the Sheriff's office and get it.

No problems with regular capacity magazines, or the weapons that take them.

I haven't tried any NFA stuff though.

But IIRC Oregon is not reciprocal with anyone, so another would be necessary for travel and carry.

Absent some huge federal help, politics in Oregon will predictably drift more toward California style liberalism..

Hope you decided to move elsewhere. Don't mean that in a bad way. One poster here pretty well summed it up already. If you like mold, rain, Liberals - have at it. If you live in or around the Portland area, expect at most about 10 days possibly above 100 degrees, and you miiiiight get a month or two that feels more like Summer. Expect Winter to last into April, May and even June, expect to wake up with gray skies and falling driving rain and the same at bedtime, to wake up with falling driving rain and grey skies and do that over and over and over for months. Expect to NOT see stars at night for the majority of the year, learn to adapt and become a duck (football teams here are named for 'watery' creatures), and unless you really really really appreciate Liberal policies, attitudes, taxes and regultions - I'd stay away like poison. Eastern Oregon has been destroyed and is dying. Taken over by out of state Liberals and taken down by out of state Liberals. Your money will go much much further somewhere else. Housing prices here are some of the highest in the country and you get basically nothing compared to other states. Sure, it's pretty here, but it takes rain to make all that greenery, and then you're going to fight the head up a33 hordes of Liberals flocking out to all the boutique towns they've destroyed out in 'cowboy' land for their R and R. If you find driving with entitled idiots who think crossing/passing on the double yellow on mountainous windy roads is fun and their right - yeah, come to Oregon, but I can pretty much guarantee you'll be thinking about using a power drill on yourself for a lobotomy (or someone else) a year after moving. Do NOT underestimate the power of SUNSHINE in the well being of humankind.

Western Oregon is plenty wet and full of Liberals. You wouldn't like it. The weather is not that different than Seattle.
