I have a tempting opportunity to relocate to the Corvallis area, so I’ve carefully combed through the posts on Western Oregon. It’s great to know what long-time residents think as well as people who relocated from California, Hawaii, Florida, and other locales. Yet I was also hoping to read more opinions from people who came over from the Midwest. So far I’ve only found one post.

I grew up in Ohio and am currently living in Northeastern Wisconsin with my wife and four kids (the oldest is in high school). Any former Midwesterners out there who would like to comment on their Oregon experiences? I’d love to get your take on the cost-of-living and what it was like to acclimate to the local culture. I’m open to all opinions, good or bad.

psystats--I'm sorry, I don't have first-hand knowledge since I'm not a native midwesterner. But my wife is originally from Michigan and moved here almost 20 years ago to attend OSU. She said the most striking thing she noticed when she first arrived was the lack of humidity during the summer.

Now she considers herself much more an Oregonian than a Michigander.
