With all the crap going on in Oregon these days, especially Portland and thats just a little bit north of Corvallis, I’d be ready to get outta dodge if it was me. Them people be crazy up there. Life in the Big Easy might not be too bad for a last stop before retirement.
I know several great people from Oregon. I personally didn’t care for Portland the two times I have been (the people were nice) but LOVED central Oregon. I spent a week in the Bend area, WOW, just WOW.
