Moving to Area.

Recommended Posts

Thanks for all the warm welcomes.

 

As far as good shops go around this area, there are a couple, and there are also some bad ones. Some places are trying to sell beer bottle corals at champagne prices and others actually are able to give support and advise. The nice thing is we have local places to buy bulk dry goods which is very helpful. Sometimes you need it immediately and cant wait for BRS to ship it. The other nice thing about the Bay Area is there is a huge population of Asian people that go on vacations to their homeland. Usually they bring back nice corals they find while scuba diving. It is very common to have corals that nobody else has. I have a few in my tank that I want to be able to have again after I move.

 

I will be super excited if this works out and we end up moving to your necks of the woods. Hopefully this job pans out lol. I am looking forward to having my dream setup and meeting new people to help me put it together. I heard you all are cheap labor (work for beer/steak) which is very nice to have around.

 

 

How are the stay-at-home dad activities up that way? Are there things to do so I dont have to be stuck at home all day? Are any of you stay-at-home parents?

 

I am a stay at home parent but that's do to lack of work, there are plenty of things to do, do you hike, ride bikes, fish, ski, snowboard, hunt, raft, gamble, shop, zoo, omsi, offroad 4x4ing, there are lots of things to do, the beach is 45 min away, the mountain is 45 min away, the high desert is 1.5 hours away.

So we are still a week away from my wifes interview in Portland but this past Saturday my LRC had a frag swap. I took a cooler FULL of frags to get rid of but ended up coming back with a cooler full of new corals... Im not doing very good at emptying a tank.

Portland has more breweries and strip clubs per capita then any state. Or so was the case a year or two ago.

 

Jess just informed me that a small city, she can't remember where, has taken over the title of more strip clubs per capita, by virtue of the fact that it is very small, an has 6 strip clubs. Portland still has a crap ton of em though, an new ones are opening up all the time LOL.

How is the snowmobiling? How long is the season? Same with hunting.....

 

 

Not a snowmobiler so I can't answer that one. But there is all kinds of hunting and fishing around, enough to keep you busy.

Snowmobiling really depends on our winters..... changes year to year but usually you can get a few months or so in if your willing to drive to the mountains..... And hunting season fully depends on if you hunt with a rifle or a bow! Rifle seasons are pretty short but bow seasons are pretty awesome! (I bow hunt myself)

Im not sure if I can bow hunt anymore since I screwed up both my shoulders. Rifle season doesnt have to be that long..... I only plan to hunt one day a year. I actually dont think Ive hunted more than 12 hours a year since I ETS'd.
