    As opposed to Seattle where I was before and after Portland, (that's where I drove from,) where Mt. Rainier was only visible on the clearest days. The top was in the clouds when I returned from Portland. I think Rainier may be 5 or 10 miles more distant, but the air is definitely clearer in Portland.

    You can clearly see Mt. Hood (50 miles), Mt. St. Helen's (53) and Mt. Adams (75) on any day thats not rainy or cloudy. Mid June-Late September that's 90% of the days.

    Did we mention no sales tax?

    I would hope you could see Mt. Hood as it's 10,000 feet up in the air.

    If there's ever a day in Portland or Vancouver where the smog is so bad that you can't see Mt. Hood, then Nuke the entire planet because by then everyone will be walking around with oxygen masks on their heads.

    The only smog-type phenomenon threatening P-town is ash from Mt. St. Helen's

    Family will always keep us in Ohio, but I'd be willing to try (in no particular order) Portland, a few spots in NC, a few spots in Colorado, and a few spots in Georgia.

    I'd give Chicago, NY, and Boston about 6 months apiece.

    All the states other than Hawaii and sometimes Alaska depending on context.

    I've never heard the term continental U.S. include Alaska. If you're a merchant, for example, and you guarantee delivery to the continental U.S., I'm pretty sure you're talking about the "lower 48" states.

    I realize Alaska is attached to the continent. It's a bit of a misnomer.

    Overseas (and in war movies) they often refer to this as "the mainland".

    Re: If you could live anywhere in the continental US, where would you live?

    Since finishing high school I have lived in:

    Davenport, Iowa
    Columbia, South Carolina
    Monterey, California
    San Angelo, Texas
    Normal, Illinois
    Lawton, Oklahoma
    DeKalb, Illinois
    Sierra Vista, Arizona
    Uijongbu, Korea
    Wurzburg, Germany
    Skopje, Macedonia
    Charlottesville, Virginia
    Annandale, Virginia
    Anchorage, Alaska
    Manhattan, NYC, NY
    West Point, NY

    In the military you move a lot. I loved living in most of the places, but the one thing they all had in common is that in every one of them I still dreamed of returning to the place I was born and moved away from at age four:

    Cincinnati, Ohio

    So I should have said "most of the time". I also get continental and contiguous mixed up. I was thinking Alaska was continental, but not contiguous, et cetera.

    Michigan is beautiful in the fall... I was there in November for the big game, and while it was towards the end of fall, it was still stunning.
