SW - Rogue Valley (Ashland/Medford/Grants Pass) or Umpqua Valley
NE - La Grande/Baker City/Enterprise
might be along the lines of what you're looking for
It'll be colder in the NE, SW is more of a Mediterranean
type climate, not nearly as rainy as the coast or NW part
of the state (Eugene/Portland).
That said, I'd sure consider New Mexico, Montana or
parts of Colorado as well, maybe coastal Northern
Cal (except maybe for the gun-friendly part - most of the
locals are probably OK, but until they manage to secede
you're stuck with the rest of the state)...
