  1. Hi James,

    What made you decide to bail out of Portland (I ask as a Bay Area person who’s often thought of moving there, and who also had folks in Vegas)

  2. Sorry to see you go. I came to the Northwest from Lake Tahoe near Carson City and Reno. I often miss Tahoe, but not Nevada. I just can’t stand the gambling atmosphere. I’ve spent time in Vegas for business and I just can’t understand the appeal.

  3. I’ll be honest, Hud.

    I never understood WHY you left Vegas to begin with.

    The city is not my cup of tea but as I understood it you liked it there!

    Any how, better luck with living back in Sin City and best for the future.

  4. Why I left: I came up there for a job with a start up company that some friends put together, but they never got their funding. So after a year of sticking it out and going broke, I tried my hand at getting another job but the marke3t is worse up there than in Vegas. Plus, I don’t know a lot of people up there and its far from my other friends and family so I decided to head back south where pickings are better. I have been able to work doing freelance web jobs, but it hasn’t been eough. I have a lot of contacts down south whereas I had few up there.

    Plus, that company I moved up there for is still at it and may get their funding, but I don’t have to be up there to work with them. I also have some projects starting soon in the Vegas area I want to be involved with. Including another friend putting a lucrative company together.

    That’s the short answer.

    I liked it up in Southern Wa, but Vegas is a lot more entertaining. I don’t gamble or drink but there is so much to do there and like I said, I have more freiends. The weather is also a lot better in Vegas except for 3 1/2 months in the summer when its super hot. The rest of the year it’s 70 degrees (f) and sunny. in Portland it rains 9 months of the year.

  5. The rain alone would do me in! LOL

    Good luck in Vegas. Except for the killer bees and pollution, the weather sounds like a good trade-off!
