My wife and I are considering relocating when we retire. We looked at a bunch of cities in Oregon over the last 9 days, and think we’d like to settle in Salem, Oregon. It’s a beautiful place! I realize that we saw it in the summer, so we also plan visit in the winter before any final decision would be made. We’ll be renting our properties here, so if it pans out, we’ll have a place to return to if that came to pass. I located some wood sellers, and she’s found some quilting oriented things.

My questions primarily relate to weather and health issues. We have medical coverage there, but I’m wondering more about allergies and bugs (well, the wife is, I just step on them for her) and mold, since it’s pretty wet there compared to southern California. Anyone living in the general area have any comments about these topics? Or, of course, answers to questions that I haven’t thought to ask?

atomjack; I can’t wait for the day I can move out of this state. the LIBERALS and ILLEGALS can have it.
I have a friend that retired to Oregon , with a couple acres and a 4000 square foot shop. but didn’t consider the taxes of the state. wished he would have moved into Washington state instead.
Just a penny for his thoughts!

Have your say...
