I hope I am reading your question correctly because you say looking to relocate from ..... so if that is the case be sure to check out Bend, Oregon! I lived in Portland Oregon for about 11 years and then moved to California. I loved Oregon but couldn't take the damp, over cast sky for months on end. We checked out Bend and found the town friendly and it isn't too far to drive to the coast, Portland, east to the desert - mountains, lakes, rivers you name it we have it here.
