Wink Who'd a thunkt

What are the odds of a pair of Canuks on a weeks holiday in Harrison Hot Springs resort ( in Harrison B.C. ) running into a Glass Egger from coastal Oregon with her trailer in tow!!! Boy, we sure have a trailer full of stuff to catch up on in the morning over Breakie.....! .

I understand that Oregonians prefer travel to B.C rather than going south to California out of fear that, after experiencing the Golden State, that they won't want to go back to Oregon.....LOL

It's probably more like they prefer BC because they know if they experience the Granola State their minds will turn to mush. Or maybe they prefer fresh air to smog. Or the availability of water to drought. LOL

In Oregon the entire Pacific Coast is publicly owned so the beach campgrounds are fabulous and you can stroll for miles. The state campgrounds also have electric, water, dump stations, trees for shade and firewood for sale - all at around half the price of California parks.

Left California for Oregon in 1978 and am quite happy in the Pacific North Wet.

This is our first trip west of the Mississippi and Oregon is the true gem of the West Coast.
Oregon's parks are beautiful ,well maintained ,reasonably priced and the park staff is very friendly and helpful. IMHO

Looks like you were able to find a way around the smoke. Good for you. Enjoy, Raz

Well, Let's look at that:

Portlandia has had more bad air days this year than Los Angeles.
Vancouver, BC has more severe water restrictions than Los Angeles.
Granola is a healthy food choice.
Oregonians, with a nearly 50% higher rate than California, must think that smoking is a better health choice.
Percent of Adults Who Smoke | The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation

Now, I love visiting the northwest, I spend 3+ months a year up here. Every state has positive life quality attributes and negative life quality attributes. That said, it would take a lot of positive attributes, that I haven't been able to identify, to balance sinkholes, hurricanes, constant uber high humidity and the perfume of swamp gas found in a certain state, and I once lived there for over a year.

And yes, CA State Parks are expensive, but CA has a balanced state budget, plus a surplus for those bad times.

AND.... CA has lots of IN n' OUT's. Can't beat a Flying Dutchman, Animal Style, and a large Neopolitan Shake for a weekly food binge treat

Oregon, my story

Oh Yes, Oregon. The first time I crossed the state line into it a few years ago, I stopped for some gas out in the middle of no where and started pumping the gas. Very quickly some crazed guy came running out all worked up about something. I though I maybe turned into the Bates Motel by accident! Turns out you canít pump your own gas anywhere in the state.

Then on to Brooks where on a Sunday morning I was driving north on I-5 and saw a HP car on the right with lights still flashing so moved to left land and then back into the right lane. Took no time at all and he was on my ass. Said he though I was weaving, but told him I changed lanes as per the law in most states. He said he didnít see me turn out but saw me turn in. Asked what I was doing there all the way from CO. Itís only 1,250 miles, those people must not get out much. Just ran my license and on my way.

Later when relating the story from some county workers from the area, they asked if it was a real young guy who looked like he just graduated from the academy two months ago. I said, hell, he looked like he just reached puberty two months ago! They knew the trooper and planned to tell him that the next time they had coffee.

One really interesting thing I experienced in Oregon is how dense the fir trees are in the national forest when driving from Bend over to I-5. They come close to the road and if you walk in more than 25 feet, you will be totally lost. The branches grow clear to the ground. Makes you wonder how anyone ever found their way to the west coast over the Oregon trail.

Have you ever been to BC? Trust me the Golden State is far to up city for the Gortex wearing, granola eating tree huggers of BC.

There's no doubt that Oregon is on the Left coast, but of the Left states it's the one I like best. It's coast is wonderful, reasonable and open.

Yup perhaps LA should put the same in place and it might help to solve some of the lack of water issues.

The Governor of Calf. has visited Vancouver many times in the past to see how we do things here in regards to living Greenier - mostly looking at our transit and recycling programs etc.

No question about it, all of the Northwest is a great place.

According to WA state locals, the easiest way to recognize an OSU graduate is that the first words out of their mouth is usually either "Fill it Up Sir" or "Can supersize that for you sir?"

Yea, Carol. I've been to BC. I also lived in the so-called Golden State for a period of time. My post was really intended to rile the individual I quoted. Wanted to see if I could get a rise out of him which I easily did! All just in fun.
