Hey all. I'm looking around for relocation, and between being accepted into the "pool" for adjuncts at a community college there, I was looking at the Bend or Redmond Oregon area. Anyone familiar with the pros/cons, or any advice?
I make a living working online and writing, so job situation is less important, and I've been in harsh environments (Alaska, Texas desert, Iowa) so that doesn't bother me.
I'm just curious as to any information or advice anyone has. Thanks!
Steph lives there. She wrote this hub for retirees thinking about relocating. I'm sure you'll find it useful too.
Retire in Bend, Oregon
I haven't been to Bend for probably 15 years, but I like Eugene and Ashland a lot. (Though the latter's pretty expensive, I think.) Portland is nice too, for a big city.
It is a little cooler than Reno where I live. But it is beautiful. I lived in Klamath Falls and the climates are similar. No noreasters or crazy weather but there is a winter and spring takes awhile to warm up. I like Oregon again for its beauty.
At least one hubber lives in Bend. Says it's a wonderful place! Great climate, etc.
Thanks for the info, guys, I really appreciate it! I've been to the Corvalis area, but the relocation looks pretty firm so I'm just trying to gather what info I can before I get there. Thanks again!

I just found the HubPages Directory and naturally, looked for my name. It says that authors must have published hubs to be listed there but I can't find my name. How do we get added?

I'm appealing to anyone who lives in a warm climate to help me out. Something in my garden has plagued me the whole 7 years I've lived here in spain. It's very small (and my eyesight isn't too good - I wear glasses),...

I have a short story that I'd like critiqued and found "Critique Circle" in a google search which seems to have a nice format and a logical system set up. It has a Writer's Digest seal and I have great respect...

As per the advice of many Hubbers I’ve tried to sign up on Shetoldme, but can’t seem to find their sign up button / page anywhere. A while ago I saw another Hubber comment on experiencing the same problem....

This is completely non-hub related, but since so many of you seem to be DIY experts, I thought I'd ask..Is there a special name for the windows you see on front doors?In particular, the kind that are protractor-shaped...
