Moving to Battle Ground, WA (Portland Area)

Posted on October 1, 2012 | 7 comments

Change is fun isn’t it? My wife and I have wanted to move up to the Pacific Northwest for a few years now. We finally just made it happen. I grew up in Nevada (Henderson and Las Vegas) but it has changed quite a bit from when I was a kid catching lizards, snakes, and turtles in the desert.

I am still at the same job with Adobe (Game Developer Evangelist) and nothing work-wise has changed. I’ll miss the friends I have in Vegas and catching up with many of you that come to Vegas throughout the year.

    Vegas will miss you.

    The Vegas Adobe office is getting scary small.

    Congrats on the move! My advice from living in the Northwest for most of my life: get a dehumidifier for your bathroom, stock up on vitamin D, enjoy the green, incorporate lots of books and coffee into your life. That and Plants of the Pacific Northwest Coast (Pojar & McKinnon) is a fantastic field guide for plants in the area.

      The plants are going to be interesting to learn about for sure, so many different trees and bushes.

    That’s awesome. Congratulations.

    I hope every goes wonderfully during the move and afterwards.

    We are getting ready to move to the same area at the end of the year. Any other tips you’ve picked up? Do you love it?
