      Mr. Keith: I've travelled up the coast of Oregon several times in the last few years. I've looked at some homesites and homes that interested me, primarily due to the economics of housing in Oregon vs California. I could sell here and pay cash there, but then what have I got? Lots of people making these decisions today. Unemployment is rampant in Oregon. It's difficult to remain in business there. Ole Db traveled up through Bend area which I haven't visited yet. Much the same is true of Arizona and Nevada areas. So, where to locate, where to locate. Once you pull up stakes in California, Its difficult to buy back into the market due to the escalating prices of homes here. Good if you have one, but if not, its difficult to qualify for loans, etc. Anyway Keith, this is a little off the Blanding site requirements, but had to respond some to your questions. Sorry Cadia....will email privately from now on......tj

      Welcome back tj,<BR>
      Yes, it has been a little quiet around here. The Carmel Blanding book idea sounds <BR>
      interesting...I wish you luck putting that together.<BR>
      My book has stalled a bit of late...too much time spent on fatherhood, work, and getting <BR>
      the house fixed up for a possible resale next year. I try and work on Blanding when I can, <BR>
      but haven't had any big leaps for awhile. Still some research to do in Hawaii, as Bev <BR>
      mentioned, but I'm trying to write the chapters in which I already have adequate material <BR>
      until I can afford a jaunt to the islands. This is one of the businest periods of my life, so <BR>
      the research and writing has had to take a back seat to everything else.<BR>
      The book won't be as expansive as you might think tj...I'm very aware that too many <BR>
      details would bog down the story, and bore readers...but I'm always looking for the small <BR>
      details nonetheless as they often lead to major breakthroughs. I'm hoping for a 250-300 <BR>
      page book which summarizes the important phases of his life (Lawton, Chicago, Taos, <BR>
      Carmel, Florida, New York and Hollywood) with a larger focus on his days in Honolulu, <BR>
      which he is of course most associated with.<BR>
      Vanessa and I hope to relocate from Colorado to the west coast next year, possibly <BR>
      Oregon. We went there last month for a week and really liked Portland and Corvallis. The <BR>
      only thing that bothers us is the high unemployment rate there. We also might consider <BR>
      Northern California, but are not sure if we can afford the high cost of living there.<BR>
      The east coast is a slim possibility too...maybe Florida or North Carolina. Any advice from <BR>
      the group?<BR>
