Thanks Raul. I joined the group. Too bad I missed the meet ups. Hopefully there will be more soon.

Hi Mary, welcome to the group. I'm afraid it's not very active, but I assure you that there are many Nerdfighters in the PDX area. I saw thousands of them at LeakyCon. I'll direct your attention to the Facebook group (linked below). We have nearly 300 members and we're quite active. We had two meet-ups in Portland just this past weekend.

So, I moved up here last year and still don't really know anyone outside of work. I'm currently in Beaverton but moving to the deep South-East.

Is anyone going to the Rose City Comic Con?

Seriously? On paper it says the banana belt area has good weather.

So I was looking at the area from Brookings Harbor, then Gold Beach, to Port Orford.  Was still considering a roadtrip up the next few weeks.

I noticed, in reading old posts, a few people further up the coast who had shared not much to do?

So my seaside shanti fantasy with good chowder, ale, and whispy clouds, awesome nature, and kelpy wind may be limited =(    ???

No one lives on the coast because the weather is terrible and it smells weird.  Spring Break on the Oregon Coast involves a wet sweatshirt contest and the "who can stay out on the jetty the longest" endurance challenge.

We had to close the group because of extreme spamming. Just click to join and you'll be approved. You'd be shocked by the number of spammers trying to sell us shoes. SHOES.

Hi Raul.  So I clicked to join (Oregon Nerdfighters), it indicated closed group =(

So tell me some good stories where I  might find creative Bohemian sustenance and frolicking Neardfighting nourishment in Oregon (Does it exist along the coast)? 

Any archery ranges?  Would it help to learn how to fish first?  Are there seaside shanti places with good grub and spirits?  Are there cool towns situated inbetween the cities and the coast?  I do like magical mist with fog n clouds, ocean smells and brisk swirly wind...I have a box full of visitor guides, but that's not the same.  Why is does the population gather around Hwy 5 and not 101?

So tell me about your town and your 3 favs about it and 1 thing that you feel might be missing...

There's a Portland Nerdfighters Facebook group that's a lot more active and it's open to all Nerdfighters in Oregon and Southern Washington. You might find it more interesting than the Ning group. Look for it here:

Hello.  I maybe moving to the Oregon coast in the future and was curious? Hope that's okay.  Not sure where to best post this here?

Considering moving there in a few years and have been considering doing a roadtrip up north for several months.  Was considering the South Oregon coast (the "banana belt"; kind of a weather wimp, but I like fog).  Would like to explore further North to see where I might fit best. 

I don't understand why the Oregon coast is so sparsely populated?  Why is that?  From info. I've gathered (on the coast), there isn't even a Trader Joe's, or Pete's coffee (they do drop shipment, I asked)...In theory there's a Starbucks in Brookings, but it doesn't have wifi and is not open in the evening.  Is there any night life?  I like nature; redwoods don't go passed Port Orford?

Would like to hear from people about coastal areas.  Still kinda like to drive up and check it out.  If anybody's interested in meeting and playing tour guide for good bookstores, coffee, chowder, ice cream, pubs, forests, live music, local faire, etc.?

I've been in CA most of my life and always less than 50 miles from the coast (never been physically in snow). So adjustment info. shared appreciated, and pardon me if I look around and ask questions to get a more realistic idea and sense about considering this move (the South SF Bay area is expensive).
