Yeah, many people in the cities are restless for a more simple life.
If you move to the Oregon coast, you better like rain
That's what I figger. Where I live in coastal Massachusetts, we get plenty of rain and gray overcast. Our winters are typically gloomy. We're kinda the Seattle of the East Coast except with snow (though this winter we got almost no snow, and temps have stayed mostly in the 40s and even 50s).
My life is pretty simple here. I am a professional gardener, I keep poultry, I keep a garden. My reckoning is that I can do same if I drive due west and settle on the opposite side of the continent in Oregon, as long as I find a community where there are no ordinances about livestock and poultry.
