Uhmmmm, NO.
IL is a full on disaster in progress. NY has some financial challenges, a variety of political problems, and lingering infrastructure (post-Sandy) issues that could well translate back to financial problems.

Have to mostly agree on Grants Pass--was there last year --- really nice area. Not sure about winter weather --Dec-Jan temps dip into the 40's.

A friend of mine recently advised the benefits of living in Washinton state near the OR border --pay no state income tax in WA and shop in OR (no sales tax). Of course, if you work in OR, then the WA income tax benefit is lost.
