I lived in Wa from 85 to 95 before being transferred to Texas. {but I grew up in Texas til my dad who was in the border patrol got transferred to the NY/ Canadian border in 60 ) I loved Wa state, hiking,biking etc. and have property next to Mt Baker. Yep you can barely cut a tree without a permit and it seems they are going nuts up there. I used to drive to Portland and go to Costco and do my shopping there to avoid the taxes. You still have to let someone pump your gas in Oregon too. My daughter lives in Sherwood, OR so I have to say nice things about it. I love the beaches along the coast and the cheese factories. (time to get that camper restored and hit the road west).

There was a movement several years ago to carve a new state out of Eastern Washington, North Idaho, and Western Montana. A lot of people in the Spokane area really resent the massive population center in Seattle determining everything for them.

Unlike Oregon, where the east and west sides are in perfect harmony.

Same problem here, only on a much smaller scale.

NH Politicians

Carl,

Here's one for you, NH has more politicians per capita than any state in the nation. There is one representative for about every 2500 citizens. Typically it means you have one in your neighborhood.

The trick is we only pay them $200 a year. It's something you want to do because you want to do 'good'; it's not a job for life.

Take a look at what a state legislator makes in most states.

Different....

We are torn between AZ and AL. AL is nice and more reasonable in many ways. If we stay in KS, we won't live until retirement because they are in the process of taxing us to death!
