I grew upon Jacksonville from 1973-1996 . Great small little town , Medofrd has obviously grown a lot closer to J'Ville than it used to be. Tons of outdoor activities from fishing to skiing.

Anything in particular you want info on ?

Still struggling with finding the right area to buy a small retirement cabin. Kids are just north of Sacramento, so I'm thinking Southern Oregon would be doable. Redding is too hot for my liking.

Jacksonville is pretty small and relatively quiet. It has become yuppy sort of which means real estate is a premium. I don't know what your priorities for a retirement place, but I am going to assume chasing fish is on the list.

Jacksonville will give decent access to Applegate river and lake along with some small streams upriver of the Applegate lake (carberry creek). You will also be in decent range of the rogue river.

Or you could look at the other end of the valley out towards Eagle Point or all the way out to Shady Cove. That will get you probably lower property prices, more golf. You will have access to the rouge river, lost creek lake and a little further out the S Umpqua river and a straight shot over to Bend.


Either side will give you fairly equal access to I-5 , the mall and downtown

I'll compare Ashland to Jacksonville as both are tourest Mecca's. Major difference is Ashland's three (or more) times larger. Both great places to walk around and poke your nose into the stores, eat, etc. Ashland has the Shakespeare theater(s) and JV has 'Britt.'

As far as a place to live they also have something in common: 'The most expensive housing in all of Southern Oregon.' If looking for housing look further west in the Rush (sp?) area as you get 'Rural' real quick after you leave the City limits.

The Applegate river is quite close, but public access is very limited and tends to pack people into a relatively few 'spots.' Candidly, I don't even bother to make the drive save for mid-week.

"Or you could look at the other end of the valley out towards Eagle Point or all the way out to Shady Cove. That will get you probably lower property prices, more golf.

Fully agree with the above statement. I lived in Ashland for years and purchased a new out of the box home (new subdivision) east of 'Down Town' White City. Even today you can purchase a hell of a good sized home for UNDER $200K. $200K in JV is a good down payment (ditto Ashland).

My home is located one mile east of the intersection of Hwy 62 and 140 (to K Falls). I can be in down town Medford in less than 15 minutes, on the Rogue in about 10, etc.

If you need more info on the area, PM me with your questions.
Fred

What's that?
If you're tallking about Zachary's Pizza, I'm not a fan. I like East Coast pizza, thinner crust.
What are the winters like in Bozeman? And what kind of airline connections do you have?
This is getting ridiculous. Can't make up my mind. It's either too hot, too cold, too expensive, too remote.

Do you think Roseburg and surrounding towns are too far north for you? I came very close to a move there a few years back and still would in a heartbeat.
