Hey, what's that mounted to your hood on the right side?

Edit: Whoops. Never mind. I see now that it's attached to your windshield.

My Defender is a hybrid. It uses gasoline power and gravity.

Thanks for the replies look like my wife will be working for the University there and she likes the Sellwood Moreland area. Homes seem more expensive there but compared to Orange County they are less to us.

We were looking to live on the other side of the river in WA but we were told you would still have to pay income tax even though you work in OR.

We have seen Portlandia and my sister lives there so we are aware of some of the goings on there. Im sure it will be a little more of a shock once we realize we are living there not visiting.

We are headed back up for spring break to look around a little more visit family and hopefully our home here hits the market and sell over asking price

Work in Oregon, taxed in Oregon... The commute would kill any real benefits unless the main source of income was from work done in WA, and the OR work schedule was off of traffic cycle.

Washington residents who work in Oregon must pay Oregon state income taxes, filed with form 40N, Oregon's nonresident tax form. The personal income tax benefit in this situation occurs only if you work partly in Oregon and partly in Washington, or if your spouse or other household members live with you in Washington and work in that state also. In that circumstance, you only pay personal income taxes for the work you do in Oregon. Your Washington work is subject only to federal income taxes and local, state and federal payroll taxes.

Also if you live in Washington and work in Oregon, you can deduct Oregon state income taxes you paid when filing your federal tax return.

Darn you sunshine lovin', beer swilling, cheap Swedish furniture addicted conservatives! LOL!

I have visited for prolonged periods of time and the + outweigh the negative IMHO.

Do you like automatic (switchblade) knives?
Benchmade is located in the state & they'll sell directly to you (no sales tax either) if you are a resident.

Also, don't stand still for very long or moss will start to grow on your north side

There are a lot of vans like that up here.

I do have a friend who would probably know where to go for VW stuff.

Always VW or Halsey Imports would be be good options. That bus should have a type 4 motor in it which can be more finicky and take a little more attention than the earlier upright motors. That looks like it might take more than just a little work to get going.

Without liberals like FDR we wouldn't have Timberline Lodge.

Thanks for the clarification...I just bought an SBR and a suppressor from a retiring officer up here who's moving down there and thought he couldn't take it...I guess he'll be surprised

It wasn't a fire sale (I wouldn't do that to him) but it was a really good deal!! I guess he can re-supply once he figures out there's no issue there! 😉

That's too bad, for Columbia Sportswear that is! I guess their "current business needs" are to fall behind North Farce and the like in market share.

Not coming up here then? Or will you be looking for other jobs as well?

My brother works for Columbia, does inventory management/software stuff. They take care of their employees, seems a good place to work.
