I'm sure it's been asked to death a hundred times already, but I'm looking for a more unique perspective from people who are familiar with living in both Oregon (in general) and Orange County, CA (specifically).

You'll have to be more specific as to what you mean by "Oregon" - it's an entire state. There is no "in general."

Generally speaking, in the low lands, the climate types, flora and fauna in OR are Marine West Coast with the odd Mediterranean touch (or various Midlatitude Continental types inland) whereas in its lowlands SoCal is hard core Mediterranean (or various Semi Tropical Continental types further inland).

Yes, need more information here. Orange Co., compared to what in Oregon? Oregon is a diverse state, so please describe what you are looking for, then I will most certainly offer my almost always perfectly correct opinions.

I lived in Costa Mesa and now live in Washington County, Oregon. It's greener, colder, and wetter here, and there's less traffic.

I lived in L.A. County and now live in Jackson County, OR and yes it's greener, wetter, colder, and less traffic. Also, no smog!

Fewer people, less asphalt, wetter, colder winters, less money, fewer businesses, more trees, more farms. That's for the west slope. East slope delete wetter, substitute ranches for farms, delete almost all the people. Wheeler County only has 1700 people in the whole county.

[SIZE=3]Orange county dog eat dog mentally, got to have the latest/biggest/baddest. Accident, construction or lane merge on freeway drive in lane that is closed until you canít and push your way in. Greater selection in stores for everything[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Oregon much easier going society, they will go out of their way to let you in merging. If lane ending, accident or construction that lane is not driven in for Ĺ mile before problem. Things I thought were beautiful in Orange not even close. Learn to live with less selection donít need latest/biggest/baddest.[/SIZE]

Basicly Californians are not well thought of in Oregon. We have had the term Californicate for generations.

I think there's more they have in common than different:

1) Real friendly people,
2) They both have a Sears,
3) Lots and lots of festivals.

I could go on...
