Then move. We don't need you here.

Thats what it comes down to , you are probably stuck in a not so great neighborhood. Buckle up chief and get your rear in gear, get a good job so you can live in one of the great neighborhoods in the area.

If you can't afford anything decent here you had to be just as miserable if not more so in NYC. If you want to beat the higher cost of living and live in Montana get the hell out of here and shut your pie hole.

You have issues.

You sound like a classy broad. I suppose you never had 'issues' in your life.

Stuck in PA I think you belong on the NJ or Orange County CA board. Everyone hates those places too, and wants out just like you. To each his own I guess. I have lived in So Cal my whole life and I can't remember many people wanting to move to Oregon. Washington, yes, Oregon, not so much. Good luck to you there though!

I'm actually all over these boards as I search for my next location,as are many others. I suppose I'm one of the rare few who is literally stuck at the present moment in a less than desirable location. Guess I wasn't meant to be happy...
As for the people from CA wanting to move north,why should they? CA seems like a decent place(if you can afford it),the weather is good,the people are more laid back...why move? Only reason I thought about Oregon is because pretty much Any place is better than here,and I'll keep saying it!

Great info in regards to bringing a pet across the USA. We might be one of those folks moving from Oregon to PA someday, and although Oregon is pretty on a postcard, that doesn't mean affordability and jobs are there. My husband is from PA, and says the overall affordability and quality of life is much better than Portland. Portland is a great city, but if you aren't with a high paying job or a pot of money, renting long term is one of your more feasible options. The prices of homes in PA that are older with brick is just amazing to me-here you are lucky to find a 3 bed/2 bath 70's ranch in halfway decent neighborhood for $180K.

I drove from Philly to LA using mostly I-70 and from SF back to Philly on I-90. I used mostly Motel 6 which is the least expensive chain and was always satisfactory, clean and uniform and they take pets. I-90 in the winter might be too far north (I was traveling in the summer). I-70 went through many interesting attractions but west of Denver it does cut through the Rockys and there could be snow delays. I drove leisurly and spent 7-8 days in each direction, stopping to see everything I could. It was so much fun I am tempted to do it again.
