Dearest Portland tow truck companies,
Why do you see it fit to test me? Can ANYONE tell me why you like to pick on the weak and defenseless?
I was parked in the WaMu lot across from the Hawthorne where they have always told me it is safe to park after 5pm... WRONG... apparently not tonight.
Arrgh, what the hell?! WTF?!
I just had to fork over $225.50 (note the $0.50... OOOH!) and $30 some odd dollars for a taxi ride just so I could get my ass home.
It's a shame that if after hours a lot is not in use that it can't be used for a short period of time. I was just there for a concert, I've done it before... but I won't be doing again.
Argh, so, does anyone know where a GOOD, SAFE place on Hawthorne near 39th is to park that may not really involve parallel'ing?
What's your favorite hike(s)? Gimme details, maps/directions, difficulty, pics, anything you've got.
Maybe we can turn this post into a good resource.
To celebrate a new job, I am seeking a restaurant here in Portland to go to that serves wonderful oysters. Anyone have favorites to suggest?
My bank account has a negative balance for the first time in my life, and I'm desperate to come up with a little bit of money quick to fix that. I have a lot of fat clothes from before I started bike riding. Is there a good way to sell such things in Portland? I would consider a garage sale, but I live in a place with neither a garage, nor a front yard with grass in it.
can anyone give me any information/suggestions for places that may have studio apartments to rent for cheap? my budget would be around $650/month, and i would like to ideally live in sw downtown, or somewhere within a 10 min. bike ride to downtown (preferrably south, as i work in tualatin). i've heard of these low-income housing options, yet can't seem to find any information about them on the web. i don't mind living with the crazies or in the "dangerous" areas of portland, so long as it falls under or near my budget.
i've checked into rent.com, apartmentfinder.com, craigslist, etc., etc., but if you think you know of a better one i've yet to look at, take a shot.
i would need to move in august 1st, and any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Just finished writing my thesis and now I need someone to look it over for any awkward phrasing.
Any leads? recommendations? I prefer to hire someone local. Also, if you are interested, email me your rates firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a 108 pages double-spaced and what I would need is more of someone to make sure I turn in something free of grammatical errors. I would need it somewhat soon.
Has anyone else had any really bad experiences with PMC and City Center Parking?
I just bought a pass with them on Wednesday. The pass worked this morning. They deactivated it sometime this afternoon for absolutely no reason, royally screwing me for the weekend.
