We've got 10 acres outside Hillsboro, keep a garden and cut firewood, do canning, have a 100yd rifle range on the place, etc. I just wish I was farther from Portland. Actually I wish I was in eastern Oregon or Washington (or Idaho or Wyoming or Montana ). We did own a dude ranch in Wyoming for several years. Heaven help me though, I married a city gal and I don't think she is interested at all in moving to eastern Oregon. Her family is in PDX area also. Mr Natural just posted this link: Sure wish I had some connections to folks over there. Anyone got any ideas? Is there anyone from eastern Oregon here that might know of some events, "get togethers", campouts, hunting, fishing, etc?
