i couldnt disagree more. theres nothing you can't
do in cali. theres all major types of professional sports, any kind of outdoor or
indoor recreation, and some of the most beautiful landscape you could dream of. not to mention the short drive/ride to any kind of setting you want. you can see the desert, sierras, and coast in one day if you wanted. just about any kind of forest you want to visit, and the food that is grown here feeds not only california but is sent to ALL 50 states. we have the US's best wine country, the best quality cheeses, and for the most part, the people in california are just good people.
sure you get the occasional d-bag or group of them, but where can you go and not encounter one or two?
a lot of people will say that America is a country without culture and if you have ever been to california you will certainly disagree with that. i live in the Sacramento area and nowhere have i ever seen such a diverse and colorful population, and ive been around. while Sacramento is not my favorite place in the world, California certainly is.
Oregon on the other hand...
