Oregonians are quite proud of their heritage when encountered on the east coast and take very personally when east coasters pronounce their state incorrectly.
P.S.~Oregonians can pronounce Nevada correctly, too.
Oregon Rocks, we have everything. Beaches, Mountains, Rivers, and people who pump our gas for us.
Some cool things about Oregon:
Heavenly rain that's good for you in many ways.
Wood, lots of it.
Mt Hood, great place for snow related sports.
Portland: very unusually clean & friendly city.
No sales tax!!!
Gasoline is graciously pumped for you, stay in the car.
Pendelton round-up (rodeo).
Excellent farm land.
Did I mention that there's lots of fir trees in Oregon?
Oregon is pronounced similar to carbon, not polygon.
Oregon suffers from a moderately poor economy, however nobody really notices it because there's so many services, and so many other cool things about Oregon that you'd never care if it did effect you, unless you're a Californian by heart.
However, I'm obligated to say that Oregon REALLY sucks, so you won't move in.
"Move to upstate New York???? YOU WON'T TAKE ME ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" -meselfs, talking to parents when 9 years old.
"Hey cool, it's raining. Again." -Everyone.
Grandma: "You're soaking wet, meselfs! Take a poncho next time!"
meselfs: "You're no Oregonian. I don't know you."
