Well, if they have it in Maine, it's gotta be pretty much everywhere.

My girl was in Portland for a few weeks back in May for her job. She loved it so much, she's trying to talk me in to selling my place to move there.

I just smile and nod and pat her on the head for being so cute (she's starting grad school this fall and is just doing that to annoy me).

Welcome to the Beaver state, but please, don't ever ever root for the Beavers.

Congratulations on not paying sales tax or ever pumping your own gas again.

I don't mean to leave you all hanging, but I'm packing and I don't have time to write this all up yet. Plus, I still work at the company that I'd love to publically vent about. I'm also not sure that the serenity and peace of Oregon will make me want to just move on and forget about the past, so I don't want to put it out there if I'm going to be over it all in a few weeks anyway.

Short version: This isn't about the money or the fact that I get to buy a house, but that does help a lot. It's not a huge amount of money but my standard of living will be roughly equivalent, but the housing market where I'm going means that for $300k I can buy my dream house -vs- $600k here for a house that I would have considered acceptable to live in and have kids. So - $300k in debt difference plus a yearly savings of $3k in property tax from now to eternity... The house factor makes a big difference.

I've been shopping for a new location for quite some time. If I have time I'll dredge up my "What's wrong with Maine" post from a while back. Even then, I was checking out Oregon...

Oh. And it's coastal - 70 miles from Portland. Small town, even. It's going to be great.

Once I confirm with my new employer that they don't have draconian policies about identifying your workplace online (See: My current employer) I'll let you all know where I'm working.

//edit: http://the-w.com/thread.php/id=21274 Almost a year ago... Interesting. This must be a seasonal thing with me.

Oregon has this little quirk where "Self Serve" gas is illegal. So every station is attended under the guise of "Mini Serve".

Long story short...If you want to pump your own gas, you have to leave the state.

They've been trying to get rid of this law for years, but voters always turn it down because they like the service.
