Flicka 5 Sep 04, 2018 08:59 AM Travels to Oregon In the 1960s a lot of young people moved to Oregon. They were impressed they could buy a home with some property for much less than down here. Some sold their tract houses and moved then found out it was so green because there wasn't full time sun, lots of rain. Another thing was wages weren't comparable to here. One friend got "cabin fever", left her husband and moved back here. Also, if they decided to come back they couldn't afford to buy a house because the prices had skyrocketed and selling the Oregon digs gave them a piddling amount to relocate. My advice is if want to move away from SB and you own a home don't sell, rent it in case you change your mind and want to return..
