We are headed south this month for a road trip and are looking for some suggestions on must do activities.
Please keep in mind that we are physically fit and LOVE the great outdoors. We’re interested in hikes, hot springs, big trees and must sees (like crazy cool diners and large balls of twine). We are also poor.
Suggestions for fun and memorable activities near:
Redwoods (northern Cali)
And anywhere in between!
I have this pipe dream that I really want to start making a reality. I want to live in a house full of artists who I can live with/ learn from/ and be encouraged by (and vise versa!). I've heard of communal living environments or houses like this elsewhere, but I've never heard of one in Portland or the surrounding area.
Are there any houses in North Portland, Vancouver, or Camas that are full of artists that might be looking for a room mate this winter?
If there aren't any such houses - are there people who might be looking join me and put one together?
Tried to drive into work yesterday, only to find that my car will not start.
I don't think it needs a jump but it certainly won't start - the engine seems to be turning over, but it isn't catching.
I'm in North Portland and I've got no idea how I'm going to get it somewhere where it can get fixed.
Does anyone know of a Diagnostic Mechanic who does House-calls?
Does anyone by chance know if they will have Warped Tour tickets for sale at the gate? I have seen them do this previous years, but I want to be sure that it is still an option. I'm trying to avoid a $10 surcharge per ticket... also, do you know if they would cost more at the gate? I can't find any info in my searching so far... :-/ I know it's a longshot that anyone would know, unless they are working at the event or something... *shrug* Thanks!
Hey there. Any of you guys camping out for the Perseid Meteor Shower peak? We could use some help picking out a camping spot.
We're thinking of camping out just on Thursday night and coming back Friday. Naturally, we want to be where there is little to no light pollution. Also, if it's possible, we'd like to avoid too much gravel-road driving.
I'm about to move, and in the process of packing up my bathroom I've found several products (mostly shampoos/conditioners, some self tanners and lotions) I purchased, used anywhere from a quarter to half of, and decided they weren't for me. Is there anywhere I can donate them, or should I just throw them away? (In an ideal world, I'd love to donate them to a homeless shelter or something - but I can totally respect if they can't take things that have been used just in case someone's screwed with them. Kind of the sad reality we live in.) Does the mighty DP know of someplace I can donate these to people who could use them?
