I'm thinking of moving to the Kennewick, and have heard so many conflicting ideas I've become confused. The story is long, but main points:
A. I work in a builder design center, my work has become so slow that I will have to make a change soon whether I want to or not.
B. I have been managing a duplex for a man who is on a mission in cambodia, I have supported his work 100% something has happened to make me seriously question his motives. Come the first of the year I may need to find another place to live.
C. I have grown up in Arizona, but have been told by dermatologist that my skin was not designed to live in sw. But I do not know that I could adjust to such a drastic change as Portland. I spent 4 months in Coos Bay, loved it. My knees didn't.
D. Housng has gone up 94% in the last 3 years, I gave up my house in a divorce. I have no hopes of owning another home here.
E. My daughter and Grandchildren are in Seaside, thats a 20 hour drive from here, just 4 1/2 hours from there. Much more doable.
Glad I did this, may get me more focused responses. i think the rest of the northwest is beautiful, I look foward to exploring the whole area. I didn't mean to get involved in comparing home towns. Just want to hear from folks who have been there and what they think of it.
