And it has to be far west of the Mississippi as well; much of Louisiana is west of the MS River, as is East Texas, and both areas see very high humidity.

I think you should look into Denver! 4 Seasons, but still a reasonable climate. You might have a few extreme days but what I think is nice is that even though one day might be a high of 19 degrees, the next day could be a high of 65 in the winter. A good mix of people, so many people are moving there too. A nice downtown, several interesting neighborhoods, and many of the mountain towns are fun places to go on the weekend. Cost of living I think s comparable with Portland, maybe a little less. And it gets a lot of sunshine.

Excellent point, the only part of TX I would consider would be San Angelo, but it has too much heat for my tastes. The most perfect climate of course is San Diego, CA, but you have to be a lottery winner to be able to afford that INSANE COL!

Since the OP checked out of the thread (and, it seems, CD) three years ago, I doubt he is still looking for advice.

Or Colorado Springs as an alternative. Closer to the mountains, less traffic and within an hour and a half of many of Denver's attractions. Slightly cooler than Denver in the summer, less snow in the winter.
