Greetings, fellow Trenchers,
I’m currently seeking a new roommate here in Sweet Home, OR. I’ve received zero legitimate responses from Craigslist, but the odds of finding someone awake from there are slim to none, and I have a very low tolerance for blindness to the truth these days anyway.
This place is beautiful… just the kind of area I wish I’d grown up in (hell, ANYWHERE is better than growing up in L.A.), and it’s definitely the right kind of place to retire. Mountains, lakes and rivers everywhere… a fisherman’s/hunter’s paradise. The 1st photo is of the S. Santiam River, that spot is literally a 5 min. walk from my front door (yes, timed it). The 2nd is of Foster Lake, less than a 10 min. drive., and Green Peter Lake is just above Foster. There are dozens of lakes & rivers within a 20 – 30 mile radius… fishing opportunities ABOUND here.
The 3rd photo is for those who hate snow as much as I do. That is the MOST snow we’ve gotten in the 2 1/2 winters I’ve been here, and it was completely gone 2 days later. Even though we’re surrounded by mountains, the elevation is only about 400 ft. above sea level, so we see snow maybe 2 -3 times a year. However, there is no shortage of rain (beats the hell out of snow!), but then again there’s no shortage of greenery, either. Also, 2 grocery stores, post office, library, credit union & banks (if you use those things) are all within a 10 min. walk or less from here. This is a very quiet small town (about 10,000), and most of the people here have healthy distrust (or outright hatred) of so-called ‘government’,…unlike the larger cities in this state (buncha commie libtards in those)
I have a 2 bedroom apt. (upstairs). They just raised the rent this month to $625, so that won’t change again anytime soon. The only utility to be paid is the electric (between $60 – $70 a mo. avg.), management does the rest. If I could afford this place by myself, I gladly would, but it’s just not possible.
I welcome all inquiries from all LEGITIMATE Trenchers… king’s men need not apply. As stated previously, I’m surrounded by mountains here, and I have 4 wheel drive.
And a shovel. 🙂
