pretty much says it all.

i love the rain. it cannot rain enough in my opinion. i can't stand the heat with humidity here in Florida. not sure i can make it to OR or WA, but if i did, it would be nice to have some suggestions on where to land.

It can't rain enoug for you because you've never experienced the all day drizzle that is the weather for about 8 months out of the year in Seattle.
Other than that, it's not like you gave specifics about what you want.

If you come up this way just plain avoid the major cities I live in the Seattle area and it really makes crazy. Its to busy crowded, people suck and its full of hustlers and fools. That's my 2 cents lol.Try the coastal areas or places like that.

Oregon is nice. Salem is a relatively small sized 'big' city, as is Eugene. Portland is full of traffic and has high rent prices. If you want cheap rent and like to be close to the wilderness, check out Albany. Not sure what your income range (or plan) is, whether or not you're planning on renting or living off of the land.

For Washington, I would highly recommend Olympia if you like culture and music.

Oly is awesome but seeing a lot about meth heads and heroin starting to get thick on the ground. That seems to be everywhere in the northwest lately though.

That may be true for Oly, there are a lot of travelers that go through there. I see a lot of coke slung around down here in the suburban neighborhoods.

I used to live in Salem and it's really a twisted police city. However the people there are either radass, or total shit kickers. there are no in betweens. but then again, i'm a jaded polar bastard. The punk scene in Salem is strong and tightly knit though. Good skating scene and a decent art scene too. If you want busy yuppie playground, check out Seattle. If you are into more handmade, working class vending, guerilla type stuff portland is where it's at. lots of work in portland and a lot of diversity there.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
