Yup. I caught that vibe when i checked out some spots in Portland.

Some would flat out ask where were from. Their smile would turn into a straight face once I say California.

I applied to two Multnomah county jobs and one of them contacted me faster than I expected for an exam. I guess I was exactly what they were looking for. Too bad I couldnt do it because it was less than a weeks notice. No way I could drop everything and fly up there for at least 48 hours.

Well who knows, maybe a job might pop up that makes it worth it if they give you short notice.
Like maybe paying $135K or something.

Been a while since I posted here.

But the goal this year is to ultimately line up a situation that will allow me to move to Vancouver. Ive had quite a few interviews so far so I am confident somethings going to happen this year.

Whats stopping you from getting this plan in motion now?

Its taken me a few years because I am trying to get a job in place before I make the move, and I feel like this year is the closest ive been to finally making it happen.

I am confident that either one of two things is going to happen this year:

1. I land a salary gig that will pay me enough to justify staying here in California
2. I get a good enough job offer thatll initiate my move up north.


My current job sucks and I'm pretty sure I'm a victim of workplace discrimination. I have been passed up for a promotion at least 3x with no real reason other than nepotism. I was as much as a company person as could be and then some and they just didnt give a shit. Took it for granted. Now I just do the bare minimum. I know I probably have a case and could take it up with the union but honestly I just want out.

Definitely better for basic living down here compared to California, you can get a decent apartment for 800-1000$ and many decent jobs you can get down here depending on your connections or work experience, Boeing pays pretty well 20+ an hr starting out. What kind of work do you want to get into

Just a little advice from a 21 year CA native who lived in Oregon for 10+ years and now lives in Arizona.

If you are trying to escape high cost of living, high taxes, and retarded laws, while marginally better, Oregon and Washington aren't far behind California. They are basically CA "Me-Too" states. Eventually doing everything CA does. I couldn't stand living in the PNW, and if you like sunshine at all, you really won't like it there. It's overcast about 80% of the time.

I could talk about it for hours, but I've been in your shoes, and if you are looking for relief from over-regulation and high taxes, I'd look elsewhere. Good luck.

That sounds interesting and makes some sense. I dig it in FL but would be nice to get out and the adventure of starting a new life would be cool.

I've been thinking some about Texas and maybe Austin lately but I would want to visit first. And I don't really need that much city life, but would like to move into a house where I can keep my toys. Colorado might also be interesting but Idk.. winter is ew.

Just curious, why Vancouver? I've watched videos and documentaries about how young people struggle to make rent and daily cost of living expenses and might never be able to afford to buy a house in Vancouver or Toronto. I'm in the SF Bay Area and don't live in San Francisco (one of the most expensive cities in the Bay Area), but I feel like those two cities in Canada are going to be even more expensive than San Francisco. To me, moving to Canada would be a lateral move, if not worse, and you would be dealing with all the same issues as California.

The Seattle area seems to have caught up with California (SF Bay Area and SoCal at least) and I expect housing costs to be similar. In fact, around 5 years ago, a local friend was considering moving to Seattle and buying an "affordable" place for about 500k or so but didn't pull the trigger. Recently I asked him about his plan to move to Seattle and he said he lost his opportunity to move out there because similar properties to what he was looking at have almost doubled in price so he might as well stay put.
