This isn't an immediate need as my lease isn't up until May but I wonder if you guys can give me some guidance here.
1. I have cats.
2. I require 2 bed/1+ bath.
3. I am currently in Milwaukie and want to move closer in. I would probably be happiest with something NE but would be fine with anything within 3-4 miles of, say, Powell's City of Books.
4. $850/month or less
5. The trickiest part is I would really like to have the option of renting a one car garage. My companion and I both have motorcycles and he does a lot of shop-type stuff that requires garage access, so this is a bigger deal for us than most people.
So, what say you DPers? Am I doomed to the 'burbs? Milwaukie's not bad really, quite pretty. I just want to be closer to my partner's work and other things.
Thanks in advance.
Is Monkey Face a good place to do your first BASE jump?
So I find myself leaving the country soon to stay with an old friend for several weeks. The problem is I can't seem to think of anything to bring him. Wine? Maple Syrup? (I read somewhere that real maple syrup is hard to find outside of North America.) Snark? What would you want from Oregon if you'd been living overseas for several years? Help me DP you're my only hope.
My Google-fu has failed me.
I have a large manila envelope that I rescued from the garbage of the retirement home I worked at about 2 years ago. In that envelope, is a bunch of newspaper clippings, maps, school reports/notes and various other things, including a copy of the St. Johns Review "Bridge Dedication Number" "Commemorating the Dedication of the St. Johns Suspension Bridge as an event of the Portland Rose Festival Saturday, June 13th 1931."
There's also what seems to be the original copy of a school report compiled by an entire classroom of children at the James John School in 1957. There's no grade info that I've been able to find, but it does say "Section 25" on the cover page. So that's probably the group of kids that wrote this report.
Most of the newspaper clippings seem to be from the 1940s/1950s.
All the documents and whatnot are in FANTASTIC condition, I suspect that before I rescued them and looked over them, they'd not been handled in 20-odd years. I'm pretty sure they were thrown away by the grown children of the (at the time)recently deceased original owner, I do recall that there'd been a few folks who had recently passed away in the building when I found these.
I'm fascinated by these, but I've looked through most of 'em, and they've been sitting in a box in my garage for about 2 years. It's time I found a proper home for them.
That's where the wise and wonderful folks of DP come into play. Where should I take these? I tried looking for a historical society in St. Johns, but didn't find anything specific to that part of Oregon, just the general Oregon Historical Society, which will be where I take these for lack of any better place. But I'm convinced that there's some organization in the St. Johns area that would LOVE to get their hands on these things! If this stuff was about Wilsonville, I would have taken it the library here in town, because they've got a "history of Wilsonville and the surrounding areas" exhibit on-site. Anyone know if the St. Johns library has that?
I'm a little overwhelmed by all this, which is why I've been sitting on it for the last 2 years. But I want to share this awesome bit of history I rescued from the garbage, with people who will find it interesting and make it so that all who want it, can find it. I'm a nerd like that. ^-^
So I was digging around in the tags and haven't been able to find exactly what I was looking for, so I'm turning to you:)
I'm currently without a job (like many people), and I was considering working for a temp agency.
Are there any that I should look into?
Any that I should stay away from?
Really, just how does the whole process work?
I'm going to school at WOU right now and would love to have some form of transportation that isn't my Jeep, though I love it. I have a bike but it was built from a old bike I got for free, along with some nice wheels and other components, and the issue with my current bike is that the frame isn't my size at all.
So my question to you smart DP bikin' people is how should I go about getting a new frame? What would be the best type of bike for wandering around Monmouth/ surrounding areas. Should I just scrap what I have and get a new bike all together? My price range is under $500 for sure. If it helps I am 5'3.
So my friend and I want to go to a snowy town on Saturday. I'm thinking Timberline Lodge? We're hoping for a little sledding, shopping, eating, just a few hour day trip. Is this even possible within an hour or two drive? I've only been up to Teacup to go Xcountry skiing. Also hopefully it's somewhere I can get in a Subaru without chains.
If not, I've been browsing the coast tags and it's hard to tell the best place to go. We want.. a little activity or two, walk on the beach, shop, eat. Our original plan was Newport but I did not realize it was so far. I was hoping for a round trip of 180 miles as I'll be in a zipcar. Suggestions of other towns? I hear Seaside is too touristy.
