Tell me about living in Boise Idaho, Medford Oregon and Colorado Springs Colorado.
The family is sick of the bay area in California and are thinking about moving to one of the above places. So if you live there I’d love to hear what you think of them. We don’t need much just looking for a nice neighborhood to raise our daughter and we can’t find that around here. Things we like are hiking, camping, having stores reasonably close, decent weather (not too cold and not raining all the time), letting our daughter walk to school without fear of her getting abducted, good schools, not having shitty traffic, and we would really love to goto subway and having the employees speak English.
So tell me what you like or dislike about where you live.
thanks

I don't know about the others, but medford is pretty close to all of those things. Do you have a job lined up?

I have lived my whole life in the Treasure Valley of Idaho. If you can find a job that supports your standard of living it is fantastic. One tip though, live east of where you work. Traffic is my specialty.

Skiing is less than 30 minutes away, hiking can be out your door if you live along the foothills. Schools are OK, Homeschooling laws are the most liberal in the country. Hunting is good. I saw about 100 deer in the foothills just out of town last week during my flight. Also, my family including my grand parents all moved here from California thirty years ago for just the same reason.

To be perfectly honest with you, you don't need to leave California to meet the requirements you listed (you didn't mention needing to buy new pistol gripped rifles).

Move to Sonora, or most anywhere in the Sierra foothills.

1. The weather is nice. It rarely snows (lower elevations) and it doesn't rain alot.
2. You are REALLY close to some of the best hiking/camping areas in the United States.
3. There are plenty of stores nearby. Hell, Sonora even has a Wal Mart.
4. Crime is practically non-existant, though I hear jaywalking has some departments up in arms.
5. There are no traffic jams.
6. Everbody speaks English.

7. (...and you didn't hear this from me) Nobody gives a rat's ass whether you're packing, or if you enjoy shooting your unregistered assault rifle in your back yard.

I live just north of medford and I love it here. Great area for motorcycles, ATV, Hiking, Fishing, Hunting, Skiing/Boarding. Medford is big enough to have alot of shoping, not too much and still growing. Employment would be the corncern as the cost of live, although not cali high, is pretty high. Hard to find a nice area/home under 300k. I could (don't) leave my vehicles and home unlocked if I chose to. I live in a very safe neighborhood and the people are very friendly. I moved here a bit over a year ago from Grants Pass. If you need any other info just PM me.

I also lived in denver for 5 years. I left there 5 years ago. IMO stay out of the city and look to the areas like Arvada 10 mins to downtown and 10 mins to the mountains, very nice area and only left there due to a family illness.

I lived in Medford in 1989 & 90.

It has changed a lot since then.

However:

- good climate. Very little snow, gone quickly.

- hot in the summer, but pretty dry heat

- they do get air inversions in the winter, about month of foggy crap

- lot's of wood burning, can be a PIA when the air is hanging low

- good, small college to the south in Ashland

- good skiing in Ashland

- lot's of Califorinicators

- lot's of old folks

- low wages

- expensive property

- can't pump your own gasoline legally

- some real rednecky, trashy areas

- long way from "real cities" - portland 4 hours, san fran 5 hrs

- I wouldn't live in Medford again. Get outside of that town.

- some great resturants in the area

- some good cultural stuff - concerts, shakespeare, etc...

- it's pronounced "OrY-gun"

- pretty good gun laws

- good rafting in the area

- you are trapped in the valleys in the winter if you only have a sportscar

I still work for the largest private employer in Grants Pass (1/2 hr north)

CO Springs rocks. Kinda highpriced stuff sometimes but other than the high cost of housing and emissions testing, it is awesome.

If a house the size of our $130k house where I live, didnt cost $195k in CO springs in a cookie-cutter suburbanite housing nightmare, I would probably move there.

Real estate prices in Medford have gone out of control. Lots of retired California types are cashing out their equity and moving to southern Oregon. Finding a job can be dicey, depending on what you do.

There's a ton of national forest and wilderness a short drive away on both sides of the valley. Medford is the major regional town in southern Oregon, and the biggest town between Redding and maybe Roseburg or Eugene, so it's got a lot of stores and such.

That is a good thing!

Its funny how people bitch about not being able to pump your own gas. "Takes to long" seems to be the biggest complaint. I can only think of a few times were I would have gotten out of a station faters pumping myself. Then there is the price issue. I live near the border of the state and know for a fact the the gas accross the river is not cheaper then here. The only difference, they have to pump their own. May sound fun to some of you but when its 30 out and the wind is blowing 45mph pumping my own gas doesnt sound like such a great deal.


When on a bike I can pump it and thats the only time I think it matters to me.

No kidding. I really do not see the thrill of getting all smelly with gasoline. I've filled my fair share times in Washington State and the price isn't cheaper, the time at the pump isn't quicker and you still have to go inside a good majority of the time to pay [as often as Oregon at least].

So you self pumpers have at it.

Not to be rude but Colorado is about full up with Californians.

Texas is nice I hear.

The family is sick of the bay area in California and are thinking about moving to one of the above places. So if you live there I’d love to hear what you think of them. We don’t need much just looking for a nice neighborhood to raise our daughter and we can’t find that around here. Things we like are hiking, camping, having stores reasonably close, decent weather (not too cold and not raining all the time), letting our daughter walk to school without fear of her getting abducted, good schools, not having shitty traffic, and we would really love to goto subway and having the employees speak English.
So tell me what you like or dislike about where you live.
thanks




COS has all of that. Well, except for the English speaking Subway employee. They don't even have that in Boise.

I pump my own fuel every time I go to Oregon. New Jersey, too. But then again, I drive a commercial truck (diesel).
