Welcome Mike! I lived in Portland for about 8 years, now living back in Wisconsin ... just a few differences! You'll enjoy it here - tons of helpful information and the people giving it are all so nice.
Hi Mike and welcome to DC. Before we migrated south, I lived in Portland for 35 years. Very nice place, but a little cold and wet this time of year...enjoy this nice group of people - you'll learn alot, and probably you have some cooking tips to share as well. Stay warm and dry!
