As for the pumping gas thing, you get spoiled by that very quickly. Whenever I go to Washington where they don't have that law, I always joke to get someone else to pump my gas cause I am from Oregon...I seriously only pump my gas maybe 6 times a year and that is cause I go up to Washington to visit family.
Georgemacon, just wait until you eat anything at Burgerville! Their food is good and so fresh tasting, especially for fast food.

I'd heard people rave about B-ville before I moved to WA, but of course understood why after having some of their food.
I also like it that it is regionally owned and responsibly managed. In my mind, it's a step up from any other fast food eating experience.

When you get to Portland, you will rue the day you ever stepped inside a Chick-Fil-a...

There are probably also a lot of people here, besides just me, who might remind you about the hate groups Chick-Fil-a supports with the money people give them.

Damn, reading this thread has made me want some Burgerville bad. I've never had anything from that place that wasn't amazing, even their salads. The "seasonal" milkshakes are always my favorite I think.

For whatever reason I never think of that place and have never gone there.

If you like your chicken between biscuits, Pine State Biscuits is the place to get it.

That is a tough call. Consumer disposables (NIKE, Columbia Sportswear, Adidas and similar), health care (OHSU, Kaiser Permanente, Providence and research institutions), technology (Intel, security software, spin-offs of Tektronix), heavy industry (Precision Castparts, Gunderson, Schnitzer Industries), Standard Insurance. Major grocer Fred Meyer, various distribution centers typical of a city of this size. I am sure I have forgotten someone.

In what is your job experience? That will narrow down the field.

Hmm. According to City-Data's page (from 2004 information) Intel is/was the largest employer.
