What’s your favorite close-in (no more than about an hour drive from downtown) adventure / activity? I’ll start. I love snowboarding. Timberline. Meadows. Even ski bowl. Doesn’t matter where, I have a blast every time and come home feeling so recharged yet completely exhausted. What do you love to do most in this amazing place?

Cannon beach is my happy place, just 2hours away. . I always return feeling refreshed!


I absolutely love Cannon Beach. That is my happy place for sure.


Douglas Ridge Rifle Club long range steel pinging at 800y in Estacada. One of the very rare west coast 1000y ranges, so amazed that it is right here.


Cool that sounds super fun!


Skiing: Meadows. But I’m touring more these days (over the weekend Govy 500) and White River is the most scenic route to Hood 🌽. It’s special. My daughter is also in lessons now and afternoons at Cooper Spur with her make that place endearing. I usually work a Wednesday/Thursday from Meadows if anyone is down for turns between calls! :)

Cycling / Gravel: Council Crest or Larch climbs. Germantown on a hot day. Forest Park / Leif Erickson. Just ticking off OMTM and Rubber to the Road routes.

Wine: McMinville is exactly an hour away. We’re 5 minutes from Amaterra off Miller. Wife loves Dogwood.

Gorge: Just hiking with the fam to any dozen waterfalls. Then beers at Thunder Island in Cascade Locks or Sugarpine in Troutdale. You expand to 1.5 hours and Hood River / White Salmon becomes a play for all of the above and more.

Hi relative newb here - own a pre-owned Hamilton and Tag and looking for my first brand new luxury piece. Not willing to have a spend history to get on a Rolex list - this caught my eye today, any chance of getting a discount? Presuming going to a AD is a better chance than a boutique? Thanks for any and all comments, good and bad. I’m debating between this and a Tudor BB. Happy holidays and cheers!

Hi everyone…we currently hired a “marketing assistant” who has no degree or experience in marketing or design.

Now I’m being asking to just “show them” how to use the creative suite for graphics!!
