I found Assateague to have an abundance of mosquitos and green head flies as well. It's a wonderful place to camp...........off season. ;-)

I am always amazed that some enterprising soul hasn't found a way to capture midges and use their ground up carcasses as a base for industrial strength adhesive cuz they are a real bugger to scrape off the windshield.

Someone managed to convince people that the dried extract of the algae off the "pristine" waters of Klamath Lake (bugs, ag run-off and highly alkaline thermal spring water and all) was healthful.

I keep waiting for them to have a eureka! moment and realize all the sludge and algae is primo biofuel material.

McMinnville is a very nice place. Well located, up-and-coming small town. The people are well-educated for the most part, and the culture there is much less blue collar than southern Oregon. Because of the title of this thread, most people who have opened it aren't going to be that familiar with this part of the Willamette Valley. If McMinnville has captured your fancy, I would hold out for an opportunity there. McMinnville and Medford are VERY different, so the choice is a significant one.

If we could just find work we would so be back in Oregon. Moved from Roseburg two years ago because HVAC work hubby does was scarce at best...moved to Texas..and have HATED every minute here. We are focusing on Grants Pass too, maybe since it is a little bigger? What about the weather..I know you get a good amount of snow, does that stall everything, would you suggest another area close by ? we have a 5 year old so school is important too.
Actually I would be happy to find a job and get back to ANY part of Oregon.

Snow is really not an issue in Grants Pass. It averages less than 5" a year and that's usually just an inch or two which melts off quickly. It's really only a problem if you have to travel elsewhere.

You must be confusing Grants Pass with Bend. El Paso gets more yearly snowfall than Grants Pass. Bend, on the other hand, gets about 33 inches of snow a year -- seven times what Grants Pass gets.

I am going to take a "road trip" to western Oregon, take a look at some places. Try to keep an open mind. And not fall in love with a town for some random reason that has nothing to do with what I really enjoy about life.
Regarding the bug thing, you might be too girly for Oregon
