my vote would be for the Vanouver ,WA location. better schools than Oregon, no state income tax, excellent location between Seattle and Eugene. Eastern Vancouver is booming with very high end homes and more work would be available closer to the big cities. Just my .02 And to live that close to the Washougal MX track would be very cool! Always wanted to ride there.... looks just like Mammoth MX in California, at least in the pics. I've ridden at Mammoth, hopefully next summer I can try Washougal.
