A year in review (technically 13 months):

-The PNW is not as bad as the haters say. The region is gorgeous and still has better than most parts of the country summers (but not Duluth). People are liberal, but I have never felt anything of the sort that I don't belong despite not being especially liberal. There are homeless, but they tend to congregate in the Skidmore area and Chinatown
-Missing winter was harder than expected. Winter in the PNW is too easy and kinda boring. Rain is enjoyable, but not challenging enough. Winter snow in the mountains is not as accessible as PNW fans say, "Oh, just go to the mountains if you want snow". Driving anywhere more than a hour become a chore.
-Missing lakes was harder than expected. Most of the lakes out here are in the mountains and kinda meh. Duluth was really spoiled for lakes.
-Duluth's cheaper cost of housing is definitely missed.
-Duluth was MUCH friendlier, although Portland isn't really "mean" or "rude".
-Nature of Duluth is pretty hard to beat. I think within 2 hours is better in the PNW, but within 30 minutes, Duluth wins hands down.

I've enjoyed your posts and your perspective very much. My wife and I have lived in the Portland area since 1992 and have (mostly) loved being here. I'm nearing retirement and we're considering options for a new, less expensive home. One option on the list: Duluth! Variety is the spice. Glad you're enjoying Oregon.
