I am looking to find a sweet spot somewhere in the Eugene, Elkton, Florence triangle. I like access to clamming and crabbing along the coast, access to the amenities of Eugene, including the airport. Any ideas?

Stay in Lane County. Elkton is in Douglas Co., so that's too far south. Basically, Eugene IS the sweet spot. The SW corner of the city -- something between Bailey Hill Rd. and Chambers -- might suit you well. The drive from Eugene to Florence is short and easy.

Veneta, or Elmira might be another choice.

Thanks for the ideas. Do the areas Steve 97415 and Steve Pickering mention have properties on hillsides? I'm hoping for a view of pasture and mountains.

More or less. All just outside of town do in places.

Between hwy 126 from Eugene to Florence, and the 38 that goes from Drain to Reedsport: Is one more safe than the other, or more passable than the other? I love the drive on the 38, but it seems to have more logging trucks. Does anyone agree or disagree?

Thanks Steve. I am retired and hoping to split my time btwn El Cajon and a house in Oregon. Like I mentioned, I'd love to go salmon fishing, crabbing & clamming, but still have easier access to Eugene. Since I first visited some logging friends in Drain back in 74, I have dreamed of the day I might be able to spend more time up there.

If you can afford two homes, go for it. Log trucks should not be an issue. That is income and enterprise in action. Stay on your side of the road and they will stay on their's. Highway 38 is the better road. Depends on where you live which highway you take.

Not much available in Mapleton, but the highway has a lot of land, and even some homes between Mapleton and Veneta. Lane county has a lot of restrictions though.
