Being a long haul trucker allowed me the opportunity to see every area of America, however i have logged hundreds of thoUSAnds of miles over the years, plus driving through every state (except HI) I have seen hundreds of towns, however now that I approach my retirement, I need to decide where it is that I want to settle down, then my life has been a single of constant motion, so if I stay in a single spot it had better be a damn good spot! Right now I am leaning towards getting a locale outside of Portland, Oregon, a single of the friendliest cities I’ve ever visited.
Of course the locale is friendly, because it seems that half the residents of Portland are whacked out on cannabis most of the time! That is not a criticism, if anything it’s a compliment, because I love cannabis as much as the next guy, plus Portland is known around the world for its locally grown strains, however for over 40 years Portland has cultivated a reputation for having the best cannabis farms.
Now that weed is legal in Oregon, there are dozens of unusual cannabis dispensaries in Portland. I am not saying that I want to transport to Portland just because of the weed situation, the cannabis law is simply a single of the many reasons that Portland is an attractive retirement spot for me. The other reasons include: the weather, which is rainy plus temperate most of the year, plus the abundance of local music available in Portland, but as a fan of the arts, of fishing, plus of smoking cannabis, Portland seems like the perfect locale to retire.
