An Englishman I know who spent decades living in the Minneapolis area retired and did some research on a place where he could drive his Lotus and Jag year-round. Decided the best weather was in Roseburg Oregon, and moved there.

I didn't visit him when we went through there in 2009 since
We were behind schedule for camping at Diamond Lake
I needed to buy a real camera for Crater Lake
The maps and satellite photos made it look like there was no way in hell I was going to get into and out of his neighborhood with the rig we were driving.

Spoke to him on the phone. He says he was right about the weather.
