ASU DL Transfer has Oregon Scheduled for Final Visit

Recommended Posts

Since this is already derailed, I might as well jump in since the new topic interests me. I've lived in Texas, Oregon, Arkansas, Pensacola and Las Vegas. I've visited multiple other places and while I'm more politically Texas, Oregon has always felt like home. Every year right about this time when it starts heating up in Texas, I start day-dreaming about moving back to the Sisters, Or area. I keep Sisters in my weather app and look at the temperature daily just to torture myself lol. I really love Santa Fe and Durango as well, but Sisters is just tough to beat! Who knows, maybe someday.....

   I spend a lot of time in Texas as our kids are there, but it's pretty humid and there's no public land there.   We live at the edge of Bend on some aceage, after moving from Eugene.  The weather is dry, air is clean, except during fire season, 30 golf courses are close, and skiing is 25 miles away.  Down side is it's growing like a weed and starting to get some of the problems of bigger cities.  It's hard to beat the weather, except the 3 winter months, but I can deal with it easily over constant rain and constant dull skies.  Besides, three months in Arizona to golf is a good alternative.  And I agree, Durango and Santa Fe are pretty nice.

Phoenix always reminded me of some sci-fi story where an alien craft picks up a HUGE hunk of concrete from the midwest and then dumps it in the middle of a desert...just to see what happens.  The best thing about Phoenix is its proximity to the Grand Canyon....and that's many hours of driving away.

 

I've lived a few places....including Oregon.  Thanks That said, I wouldn't trade the Oregon coast for any area/town/city in the U.S.  We have mountains (wonderful hunting), rivers and ocean (great fishing), proximity to large (ugly) cities, great surfing (the 'tow-in'), quiet, peaceful, and safe towns, etc.  Sure, it rains a lot here (it's only water) but the temperatures are always mild.   In fact it helps everything here grow like a plant nursery gone wild.

 

Nope, I'm an unabashed fan of this area and wouldn't trade.  In my book, coastal Oregon is paradise.  (I'm allowed to change my mind if the Pacific Plate ever gives way, lol!!)

I'm with Mudslide.  

 

I was born and raised in Portland and still have a home here.  Different place than it was growing up obviously.  Between then and now, I lived in Eugene, Bend, Orlando, Dallas, Chicago, and in Shanghai, Strasbourg, Luzern, and Vienna.  Work has taken me to 73 countries.

 

I hit 60 in 2025 and will retire to the Oregon Coast and spend winters in western Austria.   Nothing beats Christmas Season in the Alps.

Whenever I see a dirndl, I get a memory pang for air redolent with the smell of cheese fondue.
