Kids-R-fun, I am your neighbor. (Ridgefield) Small world, huh!?
And to answer the post, I agree, housing is much less $$, and taxes, schools
and social services are all much better in Vancouver, just across the river from Portland. Oregon lately has been defeating all ballot measures for schools and social service- related issues! On the down side, Clark County is the fastest growing County in the US, but I just read we still only have 375,000 in the entire county. Unfortunately, if they continue to build and cut all the trees down at the current pace, I think WA may no longer deserve the moniker "Evergreen state"!
