    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!
