3,000 miles to Portland, Oregon...
« on: January 04, 2007, 12:56:20 PM »

Horay! Free at last, free at last. So long Washington, D.C. I am moving to Portland, Oregon - my hometown - in March. Hope to meet any of you Oregonians when I hit town. Excited for this new adventure.

Happy new year all.

portland is a great city. maybe the most beautiful place in US. The city has a little funk,only an hour from the most beautiful beach on earth,three hours from Bend. Where else can you look out your window and see Mt hood,the Columbia river and mt.st Helen's? Its the fucking 15% state income tax that kills me.

     I lived in Portland 1990-1997.  Yes it's a scenic area.  But as Jack mentioned...the income tax is a killer.  In fact housing costs are through the roof (no pun intended.)  I don't know why it costs so much to live there...rents are terribly high.
     One other thing...unless it's changed...Oregon's ADAP has a waiting list.  So if anyone relies on ADAP...bypass Oregon.  Seems odd with such a high income tax that they can't adequately fund ADAP.
