Hi Liv! Good to hear from you. I lived in Oregon for 20+ years until Sept of last year in the Willamette Valley mostly in rural areas outside of Eugene. There are beautiful properties outside of Portland, again getting far enough away to be called rural. What land have you seen for sale? My budget will be minimal for land and I have time before I'll be able to purchase. I'm hoping sometime before the end of this year I can make a trip home to look at properties for sale. Power and water are not necessary as I am committed to living off grid. I've been looking mostly in eastern Oregon, but particularly want trees rather than high desert sage brush. Would like to find at least an acre in Douglas, Lane, Josephine, Curry, Marion or Wasco counties. These are counties in Oregon that are receptive to permitting sustainable structures. Really appreciate you reaching out!
