If you love being outdoors Oregon is the state to be in and you can pick your climate to live. We have every thing from rain forest to desert and everything in between. Downside is most the jobs are where it rains a lot of days out of the year. But that rain makes for a lot of green, you see most of the rest of the US gets whatever rain Oregon/Washington doesn't want.
Trees, lots of them.
Mt. Hood has the longest ski season in the US.
2nd best place to wind surf is in the Columbia gorge.
Plenty of fishing, hunting, hiking and camping.
Lots and lots of beaches but the ocean is a wee bit chilly...
Just over half the state is government owned land so plenty of places to explore without being chased off by an angry land owner.
7th largest state but a bit less than 4 million people live here so plenty of elbow room.
Crater lake, put that on your bucket list of places to visit.
