No, not really.

I grew up in Ceres and Merced. I folks have a cabin in Mariposa. As a teen I spent a lot of time in the Mother Lode area [Boot Jack, Catheys Valley, Sonora, etc].

Maybe look at Lake County.

Maybe Eastern WA and OR. Harsher winters of course, but fairly similar summers.

Maybe Reno, NV?

I assume you want to escape CA's obnoxious state government but like the climate?

yes exactly, I dont live in california right now, but wanted to return because I loved the mother lode area, however there are not many jobs and the government. reno does have ok weather but its a city and I am looking for country life. Does it rain all the time in oregon?

West of the Cascade Mountains is a maritime climate with long growing seasons and cool, rainy weather in the winter - less so in Southern (Western) Oregon, more so in Northern (Western) Oregon.

The east side of the Cascades is high desert with cold and snowy (but relatively sunny) winters and warm but not hot summers.

I live about 25 miles south and east of Crater Lake National Park, and it reminds me a lot of time spent as a kid in the Lassen/Shasta/Oroville areas.

You might look around Jacksonville Oregon for your rural lifestyle - it's in Southern Oregon on the wetter side of the Cascades, but the "rainy" season is short, and the winters are warmer and less snowy than the east side of the Cascades. Jobs will be a big issue, though, there is really no "large" city in Southern Oregon.

Eugene is in the Willamette Valley, where you get the cool, mild, very damp winters. It doesn't rain constantly in the Willamette Valley, but on any given days, odds are that it has rained or it will rain.
