Spokane is not bad, but I would consider Northern ID more seriously. Coeur d’Alene would be much nicer....

WA state 61 years. Seattle is ruined. Eastside is better and more conservative, if you have $1M for a house. Eastern Washington is better yet, cheaper real estate. Considered a second home in Roslyn/Cle Elum where open carry is accepted, also getting too expensive. Might consider Idaho for retirement.

I grew up at the beach on the Olympic Peninsula. Yes it rains, but a wonderful place. Lived for many years in SW. Wa. in the farming valleys surrounded by logging country. Loved it there.

Initially will probably be in Walla Walla/Tri cities area.
I have some good friends that moved up there months ago.
I have family in Vancouver and portland as well.
Walla Walla is like Fresno; very agricultural, ugly, and Hispanic.

If you think Portland is any less liberal than California, you are in for a rude awakening. But I suspect like most Californians, your brain has been conditioned to be accustomed to liberal/leftist ideas.

You think you are conservative, yet when you move somewhere that is actually conservative, you get all smug and mock the locals for not being as sophisticated and refined as you.

You've already chosen to mock Spokane by calling it Spotucky... Your California ego and self-importance is showing...

Everyone else around here that mocks Spokane refers to it as Spokanistan or Spokompton. We focus on the fact that there is a lot of crime and gangs, unlike the rest of the area.

Californians and other liberal refugees call it Spotuky because they focus on it being more white-trash and less cultured than their beloved California and East Coast homelands.

Yes, please move to Portland. Should be a perfect fit...

I know the names people refer to Spokane as. I lived there for a few years over a decade ago. I recently visited a good friend of mine, who still lives there. The time I had with my friends was a blast, but I do not want to move back there.
I want to live somewhere more affordable. I like good beer, wheeling, and shooting. I do prefer living near the ocean, if possible, but willing to give other places a chance.
I lived in Phoenix (some call it the Devil's toilet bowl) while I was in tech school years ago, that place sucks. And people there drive like Anne Frank. I wouldn't live there again either.

Anyone can cal a person, place or thing whatever they want. That doesn't mean it is true.
Just because you like/dislike something doesn't make it good or bad.
Some people say "don't judge a book by it's cover"

Since you do not know me, I will tell you a quote that someone said years ago.
"Assumption is the mother of all F*ck ups".

Everyone uses nicknames for places. Spocompton. Super common. Or Wetsnachee. I live near Everotten. Really can’t see that as a big deal.

You don't have to register them in Wa. Just don't bring any Ca. liberal ideas with you when you come north.
I'm afraid the liberal idea preceded him.

As far as moving out of state, NV is the only other place I am considering at this point. I would like to own a house somday, and unless I win the lotto it is not happening in CA.
The hardest part of all this, is convincing my gf about moving. We have been together for almost a decade, and known each other for twice that.
If you are a good solid Reagan style Republican may I suggest Wyoming, moving from CA you'll feel like you are all alone, and no income tax, one of the lowest sales tax rates, low property tax, low real estate prices, low vehicle registration etc. However if you're a liberal may I suggest you stay put :devilish::devildance:

I like WA as well as ID. I need to be close to the water.

You thought about moving farther north up the coast? Like Eureka? Small homes under $200K and that would put you at about a $1150 monthly mortgage.
My chief just came from Eureka PD. I thought our crime rate was bad, theirs is even worse.

Folks with California plates always drive like they learned to drive in California.
I wife has family in Oregon. Whenever I cross the border the speed limit drops 10 miles per hour. Just have to adjust accordingly.
