I love Portland...

Post by TrollFromDownBelow » Fri Mar 30, 2018 3:10 pm

Just spent four days in Portland OR, man I love that city (please don't tar and feather me for not looking anyone up...3.5 days of meetings, and had dinner with the client and co workers every night, so no time). I like it enough to seriously consider sucking up the cost of living ( more specifically, cost of housing) and moving out that way...some day. I HAVE TO take my wife out there ...she's never been.

Ha! If you liked it BEFORE meeting their VW scene, you're already a lost cause!

I keep driving up there every July to have beer with them, and this year will be no exception. :)

I actually just read your first post. Hope you know I was kidding and you take it as a compliment that we didn’t get a chance to raise a glass. Come back with your lady. :cheers:
