Oregon Comentários

I moved to Eugene from Kansas in '99. It was an eye-opening experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors.
Portland is a liberal, hippie town that doesn't deserve to have consumers' hard-earned cash. Everywhere I went people were rude and stuck up. It is beautiful but the people make it not worth going back. It's not a recommended stay unless you go out of the city, maybe then you will have a better time than I did!
I've lived in Eugene since '94 and have never seen the variety of cliques here (and I've lived on all borders up, down, and sideway with a few in-between). The hippy crap is old (I'm not just talking just the old hippies either) and if the extremists want to brag about the beauty everywhere (and it is beautiful once you're up in the trees). They need to clean-up the downtown and tell the loafers to go out east. It's a cool place, nevertheless, because of its laid-back style with people on the friendly-snobby side, but there is definitely worse out there.
I love the bus system. For $2.50 you can get a day pass and go far. They also have a free bus between Eugene and Springfield (the EmX ).
Eugene is one of prettiest towns left in Oregon. Without the hippie atmosphere, Eugene would be just another city dependent on logging, it's the hippies that make Eugene different and love it or hate it, they bring in a portion of small buisnesses.
Yeah, the "what's yours is mine" hippies and beggers do get on your nerves. A great percentage of the community lives in a bubble, too -- unaware that there's another world out there. Longer duration here allows you to see it's rather provincial in Eugene. Many folks I ran into weren't as sophisticated or cultured as I would have preferred or expected, sad to say. Obvious amenities not always found anywhere else -- Eugene does have its accessible and lush nature, plus the great tracks for bicycling.
