Additional information

I am a retired engineer and entrepreneur. I have two properties in the USA: one in Tucson, Arizona and the second is located in Portland, Oregon. I usually spend winters in Tucson and summers in Portland.
Both properties are available for the exchange separately or together. If you haven't been to the west coast of the United States it is an excellent opportunity to do so. The distance between Tucson and Portland is approximately 2200 km. It takes me three days to get from one place to other by car. The rout goes through most of the Pacific coast of the USA by Los Angeles, Sequoya and Yosemite national parks, Sun Francisco and through most of Oregon. From my perspective the best time for the exchange is May. You can fly in Tucson while the temperatures there are still mild and then go to Portland when the spring rains are primarily over. My Toyota Prius Plug-in, 2012 can be a part of the exchange.
Tucson property:
Modern single story detached house 1,640 SF (152 m2) located in an exclusive community with a private lake. It has two bedrooms, a living room with huge windows looking into the beautiful backyard, a study, a modern well equipped kitchen, a patio with barbecue, a two car garage.
Tucson is a second largest city in Arizona. It is located in Sonora desert famous for the Saguaro cacti which can grow more than 70 feet tall. Tucson is surrounded by mountains with a lot of hiking and biking trails.. It takes about an hour from home to reach the top of the mount Lemon is 9,000 feet elevation. The top of the mountain is covered with thick forest. The views from the mount are stunning.
Portland property:
Two bedroom, two story town home 1,360 SF (126 m2) located in the largest city park in the forested hills. The first floor has a living room overlooking forest, a large deck, a well equipped kitchen, a bathroom, and a two car garage. The second floor has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. All rooms have high vaulted ceilings. The area is considered one of the most attractive areas in the city.
Portland is one of the major US cities ideally located between the Pacific Ocean and Cascade mountains with one of the most comfortable summer climates in the country. Also it is one of the greenest major cities with a lot of parks, rivers, lakes. It is called Rose city and holds annual international rose festivals.
I am travelling alone and interested in long term exchange - 4 weeks +. Time wise I am flexible.
