i'm not sure but maybe they stayed here last night
it's like the hippest travelodge ever

that's exactly what i did and exactly where we stayed. that middle part with the chairs has a tent over it now, and is decorated prettily with white/blue/silver christmas-ish stuff. it's "the smoking lounge" and it made me very happy.

did you find a house? or a neighborhood?

jergins, Monday, 1 December 2008 23:44 (twelve years ago) link

i think she liked the area around reed. looking at neighborhoods was the main objective, not finding a specific house, so no to that part. not many for sale, though. we were surprised.

could totally see her living down in that area. light rail is going to go through holgate down to milwaukee in the not so distant future.

jergins, Tuesday, 2 December 2008 00:09 (twelve years ago) link

perfect then! expensive though, considering where she'll be selling and where she'll be buying. huge difference in cost of living.

cost of living concerns are for wussies

jergins, Tuesday, 2 December 2008 00:17 (twelve years ago) link

hey mac you're talking about my sister

lxy, Tuesday, 2 December 2008 00:23 (twelve years ago) link

(who is maybe a tiny bit of a wussy in this regard but still)

lxy, Tuesday, 2 December 2008 00:23 (twelve years ago) link

go big or go home

jergins, Tuesday, 2 December 2008 00:33 (twelve years ago) link

of all the semi-regular l&j board readers gr80's cost of living has to be the highest, yeah?

jergins, Tuesday, 2 December 2008 00:34 (twelve years ago) link


LOL cost of living is one of the reasons I'm considering Portland!

tehresa, Tuesday, 2 December 2008 03:51 (twelve years ago) link

yes of course, tehresa.

i'm not making a statement about the COL in pdx so much as commenting on how much more expensive it is there than where she's coming from.

lxy, Tuesday, 2 December 2008 04:13 (twelve years ago) link

yes. it's all relative.
(esp because she is your sister!)
