Wouldn't pay over 30 for a single acre, no matter how developed. Its dirt.

Simply: I'm sick of the race
Here I am, stuck in a job that makes me feel like I'm wasting my life away, but I do it because I make okay money (not awesome money, just okay). I do it because we have an 1100 square foot condo 2.5 miles from here, that cost me 249k. It takes me 45 minutes (on average) to get to work. I despise the weather here for 4 months of the year. I've got rooms full of shit I don't use and I'm generally unimpressed with most of what's happening here.
At some point, I have to step aside and ask "why am I putting myself through this?"
I was in Vegas from August 12th-16th. The average daytime temperature during the day was 104 degrees F (40 C for you), but here's the thing.....I didn't mind it one bit. I kept drinking water, but otherwise, I was LOVING it. The lack of humidity made even that ridiculous of a temperature, completely tolerable. I took a drive to Hoover Dam and was able to see some of the suburbs outside Vegas, saw/met some natives who embodied a level of relaxation that I simply don't ever experience here. It was beyond refreshing. Not to mention that in a few short years, I'll have enough equity in my condo to walk away with enough money to buy (for example) a modest town house in Henderson or suburban Vegas for CASH. With the biggest expense of life out of the way, the rest becomes a lot easier, especially in terms of finding even part time work to help get by.
Oregon is interesting to me also, because of it's lack of severe winter (in terms of snow or low temperature). My wife has been there twice for work already and LOVES it, which is obviously a big plus.
Something has to change, that's all I know.

Don't worry, I'm not going to invade....I can't stand the humidity. (though, it's better than winter)

Its 70 degrees minimum every month. I own 2 pair of jeans lol
My buddy bought the acre.5 across from me for $30, cleaned some trees off and sold it 3 yrs later for $50. I don't get these lot prices of 100k, that's not even half an acre. The high dollar lots are on the river, not a pretty ocean or mountain, a doodoo brown river with lots of boat traffic..$200k+

that's less than almost any dinner I have when I go out
shit, I need to get to love humidity and cash the f**k out

So, here I am in the airport, a bag of shorts and flip flops all packed, and $60 bucks in my pocket to go buy some land next to Alpha.
And he forgets the 'k'.

What's your ideal months to visit?
We're a March-April, late October-Dec. Only comfortable times. Hot is stupid uncomfortable. We don't get 'cold' just chilly or to you guys just not warm. But this ain't where tourist go to see winter wonderlands.
