It’s definitely smaller than Portland, but one reason I’m excited to be coming is that it seems incredibly livable and lively for an American town its size.

And as far as food trucks — it seems from my visits that they’re starting up? There’s at least one specializing in belgian waffles. But I think maybe they tend to hang around the towns other big industry, rather than the University?

There is the same annoying cookie-cutter look among the white people, ca. 20-45–lots of ink, lots of funky eyewear, lots of disgusting male facial hair. There are more cowboy boots & more western gear, but that tends to be worn by people who are a little older than the hipster demo.

We have no food trucks that I know of, but the restaurant/nightlife scene is pretty happening for a city of its size.

Email me if you want to get a cup of coffee once you’re settled in.

It didn’t rain, and it was even mostly sunny in the a.m., and partly sunny in the p.m. I had a nice run along the river paths nearby.

Today looks like it will be pretty rainy.

This week’s weather is less than optimal. Last week, though, we had temps in the 80s and lots of sunshine. There was even sunshine at the coast.

As a rule, summer doesn’t kick in here until July 5. It runs well into October, though. So it kind of evens out for us.

The variety here is much more impressive, however.
