There is something about the Pacific Northwest that is unlike any other place I’ve visited.
It isn’t the people, that’s for sure, because the people in this region tend to be quirky and anti-social.
I understand that sounds like a broad, sweeping generalization, but it’s just my personal experience! The people around here tend to want to be left alone, they thrive under gray skies and constant rain, and they usually don’t like the law or the government. The weather in the Pacific Northwest is amazing, the landscapes the best in the world, so if you can get over the strange people who live here, then Eugene, Oregon is a great place to live. I have always considered myself a bit of an outsider, with aspirations towards being a hermit or a recluse, so Eugene was the perfect place for me to settle down. Not only do I get all the peace and quiet I need, but I also have access to some of the best cannabis in the state. From top to bottom, I would say Oregon is one of the top 2 or 3 states in America in terms of quality cannabis, and Eugene is no exception. I sold my car when I moved here, because I didn’t think I would need it anymore, so usually I ride my bike down to the cannabis dispensary once or twice a week. It’s Eugene, so of course I often have to ride in the rain, but it’s so close to my house it doesn’t really matter. I kind of love it here.
