Default Ok, ok, cheapest place to live on the west coast?

Cheapest place to live on the west coast (anywhere in Washington, Oregon or California.) What city/town would have the lowest cost of living out of anywhere in those 3 states?

And by west coast, I don't mean on the coastline. It can be as far inland as the state goes.

Well, there's some seriously cheap real estate in the deserts of Eastern Oregon, especially in the southeastern corner...Although you're going to be outnumbered by rattlesnakes and pronghorn antelopes out there.

But I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for.

Spokane maybe? Tri-Cities, WA or Yakima?

How about Salem? Medford?

These are just guesses.

David might be right. Can you believe they have 3 bedroom houses for only $18,000 in Trona? Sure, the population is only 18 but ya can't argue with those prices!

Sort of like the town in that old movie, Bad Day at Black Rock, only it's bigger and dirtier. And I am sure you could get a place real cheap there.

Oh yeah. You just might have to clean up the meth lab and repair the damage from the arson(s).

Tronites (people from Trona) that I've known, from when I lived in nearby Ridgecrest, were generally the kind of people you just couldn't put your finger on.

However, it does have some things going for it. There are good, well paying jobs at the plant there, and the 8-man high school football team usually wins a lot on their home field made of dirt.
