We spent the last week in Oregon about 40 miles from Portland. It is the Oregon wine country.
The country is hilly and beautiful with so many wineries that it looks like Napa Valley.
My wife’s son lives there with his family on a 48 acre compound near the town of Mcminnville.
Their home is at one side and there are other homes there for the other family members who live there..
Not far away is a very nice aviation museum.
They have a great collection of WWII warbirds with another collection of jet fighters outside.
The museum has had a few financial troubles since the founder died a few years ago but seems to be OK now.
As I watch the election, I am thinking of a bolthole and rural Oregon might fit the bill. Housing is pretty cheap and the country is very pretty. Lots of rain in the winter and a bit of snow, so we will take another trip in a few months.
