...hello Oregon!

Time to leave my home state for many, many reasons. The biggest being housing prices. Then there's the stupidity in politics and culture, which I can't get into here, high taxes, sanctuary state and cities, etc. So I've taken a job in Corvallis and we'll be up there living by the beginning of September. Stoked!! It's beautiful up here!

If you're in Oregon, gimme a shout out!

Corvallis is a little pricier than much of the state, but that’s still $500k less than the median home price in the town I live in in CA.

$500,000.00 less. No joking. For the same era/make of house.

Ridiculous.

We immediately save $560/mo on rent for essentially the same apt in CA.

Stay away from Seattle, it used to be cheap, but we went the same way as California! Mortgage or rent, you need 2 sources of income to pay, which is hard when you're only 1 person!

Ive got a long list of bucket items to do when i retire. Funny.......None of them involve that crazy F ed up state. Route 66 is on the list , but ill stop at the Cali state line.

People in that state are thier own worst enemies.
