Rumsky Stay in Jefferson State

Robin travel blog
Wikipedia says: "The State of Jefferson is a proposed U.S. state that would span the contiguous, mostly rural area of southern Oregon and northern California, where several attempts to separate from Oregon and California, respectively, have taken place. This region on the Pacific Coast is the most famous of several that have sought to adopt the name of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States. Jefferson, who sent the Lewis and Clark expedition into the Pacific Northwest in 1803, envisioned the establishment of an independent nation in the western portion of North America that he dubbed the "Republic of the Pacific";[1] hence, the association of his name with regional autonomy."

Thomas Jefferson is definitely one of my heroes. I've had the opportunity to visit Monticello and see treasures dragged forth by Lewis and Clark hanging in the entryway. After over 20 years in Portland, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to settle in southern Oregon. Lying equidistant from trendy PDX and Silicon Valley, Ashland has a decidedly different vibe, from artists and musicians, PCT through-hikers, sketchy vagabonds, religious farmers, pot-growing hippies, to culture-loving hipsters. We landed right in the middle of it all and made the most of our six month stay in Jefferson State.
