I’m going to miss Oregon. The full-service gasoline, the protected coastline, the strict development zones of its cities. California is coming. Fucking California.
California is like Texas but filled with things I like. I like the wine, I like the weather, I like the geography … but there’s something about California that rubs me the wrong way. It’s like a vibe of entitlement, the stench of those that consider themselves blessed. Maybe that’s why I wasn’t keen on Provo either.
I have a hate-love-hate relationship with California. I like the politics of the state, generally, but the place is retarded when it comes to money. It’s frustrating. And I really hate the astronomical State Park fees (which are astronomical because the state is basically broke). California, land of the $35-60 campsite. Yippie.
I’ll miss you, Oregon.
