    Before all you Californicators pack up your Priuses and head north, please note that the article failed to mention several key drawbacks of living in Oregon. First of all, it rains every single day, probably 300"+ per year. There are no jobs at all, none, for anybody. Everyone in the state is a hopeless alcoholic, owing to all of our craft... oops I mean HORRIBLE local brewers.

    And then of course there are all the bear maulings. One cyclist was devoured by bears just last week in downtown Portland.

    Nothing to see here... move along.

    Wink

    Speaking of bad news bears. There is one that is especially pompus, with an appearent dislike of cyclists. He has a bluish colored coat, and is referred to as Kruger.

    They're less hazardous than you might think, and quite tasty.

    Come on, you didn't think "northwest cuisine" was all salmon, blackberries, and pine bark did you?

    I'm heading to Cali to buy a foreclosed house. **** in Portland is holding it's value too much.

    And I'm sick of being mauled by coked up 115lb fixters who could seriously stand to investigate training wheels...or the very least, a set of brakes.

    But if you're looking for a place to be different in the same way everybody else is, then sure, come on up to Portland. You'll fit right in.
