it rains 9 months out of the year

its super beautiful with Mt. Hood, Mt. Bachelor, Mt. Raineer, Mt St.Helens all within easy access of Portland oregon

salem is the capital, but not much goes on down there

borders the Columbia river with Washington

excellent Salmon Fishing

The Gorge at Hood River is the Wind Surfing Capital of America

easy to get a boat or live in a boat house, or live right on the river

i recommend a house boat.. its a real house that is morred up with others and can be moved around on the river as you like to dock (it is not  for travelling, it needs to be towed by a boat)

Its the Rose City, With lots of beautiful parks and views,

it's downtown area is one of the smallest in America, as far as big cities go, it is very quiet, quaint, and beautiful, reminiscent of Vancouver BC

its clubs and Music scense is one of the best in the world

it has a very lovely China town, comparible with Victoria B.C.'s Chinatown

it has the Only Chinese Garden in America

also has a very beautiful Japanese garden, and a great Zoo

the Oregon Coast is outstandign, from Astoria, Seaside, Canon beach, the famous Haystack Rock, Newport, and so on

it has excellent seafood

and Its Culinary scene is one at the Cutting edge of its very own Pacific North West fusion cuisine which relies heavily on the berries, fish, meats, herbs and flavors native to the region

It is also home to outstanding Pacific rim Cuisine

it also has the Worlds best Culinary Schools

the people are very close to Native American Culture

it has a large hispanic, Asian, and Hawaiian Population

its also quite liberal with quite a large gay population as well

its very very green with the freshest air in America

since Lewis and Clark's arrival it has been a hub for fur trading and Logging

the weather is very mild, the hottest of summers is still quite cool, and the coldest of winters doesnt see snow.. except for last winter..

its one of the top states in America

great for retirement

bad aspects are:

its famous for its Marijuana, and it is currently the Methanphetamine producing capital of America, down in Corvalis

that in turn has produced a very large population of odd skittish schizos which has been making the city increasingly more dangerous
