Should I ever decide to move again, Newport is high on my list. From passing though it a couple of times it has the feel of a real ocean town to me. Little pretense to being anything more. Big enough but not to much.

I've spent the last 20 years living on the South Umpqua River and am giving serious thought to finishing out my life living by the ocean. Maybe I'll see you some day.

I’m from Portland. There is a WHOPPING 3.7% of the population of blacks there. AND after spending 31 years there, I can honestly say there is no racism issue whatsoever.

These worthless twats are just looking for excuses to burn cities down.

Coos bay to Winchester bay, even my last trip was still spectacularly gorgeous regardless of weather, it is amazing. Since I was a kid I wanted to live there. Oregon has everything for everyone. Still would prefer it over Pittsburgh.

a reply to: BigburghWhen I was a teenager back in the 60s I did quite a bit of rafting, mostly on the Rogue out of Grants Pass. Back when one didn't need a ''permit'' or have to wait for a slot on the river for a year or two. Just take your raft, put in and head out. We could raft for days and not see another set of rafters or kayakers. Now, I am told it is hard to find a camping space along the way.

I headed up here twenty years ago escaping from the SF metro area. Found an under priced parcel on the river bank and grabbed it off the market. Three weeks later, my wife was released from her job after 15 years and two months after that I was offered early retirement with perks after my twenty years on that job.

We get over to Coos Bay a couple of times a year for our ocean fix and then back home to our river. Soon enough I'll finish it off in these regions.

Burn Portland to the ground. It will not be missed.

We may have already been neighbors at one time. I used to live off of Tiller Trail Hwy when I first came to Oregon. We moved to the coast to escape the hot summers. I live a little bit south of Newport and not inside the city limits.

I couldn't agree more at this point. It used to be a great city, but probably never will be again.

I agree. They are just run of the mill leftist anarchists who are likely upset because the city became so unaffordable for them.

Gosh it sounds nice. Only rafting I've done are up in Truckee California. Right from the mouth of Lake Tahoe. I get it as far as trying to avoid the tourist.

We would actually fish in the Truckee river pretty much from Truckee cal. All the way down back to Reno. We or myself would get dropped off with basic needs and just float (no boat) jump in with maybe a life vest and spend a whole day floating down stream all day. Crayfish were clean an big.

Oregon (specifically the sand dunes) was another were I would go. Once you can get out of the way of ATV rental areas, set up a fire and watch the sunset. Yes, Oregon is a gorgeous state.

I also left San Francisco for Oregon. Coos Bay/North Bend is a nice area, but I think the people tend to drive a tiny bit crazier there. I prefer the northern part of the dunes near Florence. It's a little more laid back than CB/NB.

The Justice Center is a federal building.

I'm sure the DOJ is busy arresting all those insurrectionists.

lol

The Oregon dunes are awesome. We often camp at one of the National Park Service campgrounds between Florence and Reedsport. They have a lot of nice trails to walk our dogs on, too. I've also both fished and gone rafting on the Truckee river.

Can you actually go anywhere in Portland quickly??

I've never been able to. Portland is actually worse than Seattle could ever dream of being--it rates right up there with Los Angeles. Though not as bad as Atlanta--worse traffic in America.

So there's riot, and assorted other shenanigans, in Portland.

I'm shocked. Shocked I tell you.

At this point, I only would have been shocked if no one had rioted.

People are MORE interested in escaping from LA.




Well we can send the Conservatives an invite but if those libs want to move to where people are trying to avoid Cali they are in for a big surprise at how deep the sentiment is about doing the right thing, having 2 bathrooms, and no men with their parts visiting the women's room because they "feel like a woman" today. Children are not to be taught porn in school as the Cali' Teachers do either.

Let them know they are not to diddle little kids and call it being "minor attracted" either.

I knew right away that they would riot in Portland after I heard the verdict in Kyle's trial. Some people there seem to take any and all opportunities to do so. And they know that they will get away with it in Portland because of inept Ted Wheeler and the police skeleton crew that remains in the city. At least there were only around 200 people out doing it in Portland last night, and they only talked about burning stuff down. However, they were throwing rocks at the police. My news feed leads me to believe that there were only peaceful marches in other cities.Β 

Something needs to be done to put an end to this kind of crap. We used to frequently go to Portland for a nice meal or to do some shopping. One of the reasons we stopped was because the protesters were allowed to block the streets and highways last year. Now I only go there when we need the Japanese consulate or the USCIS field office, and we put those off until the last minute. We won't even grab a bite to eat while in the city any longer. It's in, do business, and quickly get out. I know many people who avoid Portland, and the frequent protests are one of the reasons. Albeit, the homeless issues are a another major reason. Ted Wheeler is blaming the pandemic for business closings, but he is wrong. People don't want to go to Portland because of the general lawlessness. Many of the closed businesses are being reopened in better policed parts of the neighboring counties.



Police in Portland, Oregon, declared a riot Friday night as a group of about 200 protesters broke windows, threw objects at police and talked about burning down the Justice Center


Riot declared in Portland as Kyle Rittenhouse acquittal sparks some protest


They're not rioting because of Kyle being acquitted of all charges, they are rioting because they revel in chaos and the illusion of strength they derive from it. They are permitted to act like savages and they will continue acting like savages regardless of circumstance until law enforcement makes a firm example of them all. Or they will kill each other and fix the problem the natural way.
