Hey Hissy.. I just noticed that you have several rural acres in Oregon? Craig and I were wondering where? Craig is from Oregon (he abosolutely LOVES it there) and his parents also have a few acres in rural Oregon! He flies out to visit them as often as possible. I hear its really beautiful!

However, this is the first state that I've stepped foot in west of Texas and I haven't been out of the bay area. So I have a LOT of sight seeing to do.

Hehe... I've never seen a mountain or a desert! I've also never seen more than a few inches of snow! Never enough to build a snowman *cries* I have a lot of living to do!!!

Don't feel too bad Cassie....I have seen mountains, but never have I seen an ocean...

I've been to Oregon and love it down around Grants Pass, Portland and Salem. Have 2 sons that live in Hermiston, it's barren I think.
I live in Virginia and have a view of Apalachian Mts. and in about 4 hours could see the ocean. Life is good.

Hehe Debby... I lived right on the beach when I lived in Florida. Well some of the time I lived in Florida... I lived in Florida for 15 years and the entire time I lived there I was a 15 minute ride from the beach.. 15 minutes top. The beach was in our county so it was a ride away.... I can't imagine life without the ocean. Hehe today living in California... if I want to see the ocean I could walk about a mile from my apartment and see it. You should come visit me!

Never been to Bay area. LA for a week in the 80s. Just moved from the FL beach to TN mountains. Lotsa lakes here. Sis lives in Melb, FL so I still get to visit beach. Love the weather here. Too hot there.

Cassie....how about you come to Iowa...and I will go there!! :laughing:
I would trade you mountains of snow for an Ocean, anyday!
Maybe we can visit each other and you can build a snowman, and I can walk along a real beach!!!!!!!!!

I'm strange. I pefer a true desert.

Oh, I love the beach and the mountains too, but the desert is where I feel at home.

Where we live, we are like an hour away from everything, desert, mountains, beach, and a little over an hour away from Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Wow. I envy you Illusion! I've never seen a desert... or a mountain.. hehe guess I'm missing out on a lot

I'm here in beautiful Oregon also, and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Although we get a lot of rain, it keeps things green and lush, and the air is pretty clean and fresh here!

On any given day I can travel a maximum of an hour and go to either the Ocean, Mountains, Desert, Woods, or City...if I can find a ride that is! :laughing2:

Anyone want to come for a visit? You can bring your cats!

You're all welcome to visit Israel, where you can have snowy mountains (well... mountain), deserts and beaches and nothing is more than 4 hours away than anything else... It's a tiny country - smaller than Delaware but with a great variety.

Sounds like a deal to me. I'll build a snowman in your yard and when you come visit I'll show you the beach. You can see Alcatraz and the Golden Gate too if you want.

Craig and I sometimes wait until 1:00 am or 2:00 am and go to the beach and walk along the sand. It's really cold because of all the wind but it soo nice because there isn't a soul about .. its super quiet and there is nothing but us and the sound of waves.

I've lived in near the mountains, desert, and ocean. All that is left is the Plains and tropical rain forests.

I've been several times to Lake Tahoe(on the border of California and Nevada were all the casinos are and close to Reno. My boyfriend lives there and I will be moving there soon. The winters there can be very cold and snowy and you have to have chains or snow tires. I just got back last week and the tempreture during the day is nice and went up to 75. the lake is beautiful. Unfortunately,I didn't bring a bathing suit. I jsut soaked my feet in the water. Really nice. Bad thing about it is too many houses. I prefer a tent to a cabin. And a campfire to a heater. And having deer and raccoon visit rather than people. But I love Lake Tahoe. Much more exciting than Utah.
