    Everyone wants to live in Portland, Oregon. On the east coast, I often heard people talking of moving here. Usually they mentioned the natural beauty but sometimes they brought up the city’s great services. I live in Portland now and can’t imagine living anywhere else, and so I offer five reasons to move here.

    Wonderful! But I think I'll stick with Seattle for now. Portland is like one giant Fremont neighborhood, and while fun to visit I can only stand it for so long. I'm glad some other PNW city is attracting the New Yorkers.

    Mi Amigo,

    I'm currently trying to convince my wife to cash in our BA miles for travel on LAN in C (of course) to EZE next year. If that happens, I'll let you know. My very first pinot noir was from the W V in Oregon.

    Great news... let me know when you finalize these plans.... we should arrange for a proper wine dinner... perhaps a challenge of the Americas, North vs. South....? :cool:

    Portland is probably where I'd choose to live if I had to choose a different place to live.
