Looking to Move in 2017
The short version of the post: I'd like to move out to the area this coming fall. The goal is to maximize my days on board, looking to get into split riding and seriously bone up on snow and avvy knowledge. Where do you guys call home and prefer to venture?
The long version: I traveled to Cottage Grove, OR last fall for my friend's wedding. Afterwards, I took an extended road trip up to Seattle, B'Ham, Vancouver, and up to Squamish. I was absolutely floored by the sprawling cities and vast wilderness that was within a short reach.
I really liked the feel of Cottage Grove and especially B'Ham. Ideally I'd like to locate to a smaller city close to good riding, as the traffic in the major hubs is a huge drag. Friendly citizens, good beer, and water access are all a major plus. For what it's worth, I'd most likely be renting as I'm looking at a teaching gig back home in MI in a couple years.
I'd need to be somewhere close to industry as I'm a welding engineer by degree and hold a current CWI. Been working 60+ hour weeks for the past 4 years and I just need to tone it down to enjoy life more.
Cheers everyone. I look forward to hearing from ya.
