back in the early 2000s, when I was on the road. Yeah, definitely lots of pot farms there (harvesting jobs can pay a LOT).
It's a lot more laid back than around here, that's for sure.
Southern OR is more populated, but it has a similar atmosphere to me, at least towns like Phoenix and Ashland (not so much Medford...)
Used to camp at Jefferson Wellsprings and Lithia Park, way up in the mountains. Fished for these little weird brown...fish at a stream near my camp. Called them "grat"...not sure what they really were. Met lots of good folks, many more strange ones. Lots of good if fuzzy memories of those days.
PS: Any advice on raising chickens? Wouldn't mind having my own fresh eggs...
