    Oh, I miss Portland. <3

    • Donna in MI says:

      I take it you are now in CLT, correct? Charlotte/Douglas area. That’s a big difference in climate for you. I’m glad you have some good memories of Portland through Matt’s eyes.

      @Kherri, like in Coos Bay & Beaverton ?

  4. deanna valenti meyer says:

    That sign is definitely a beacon of the area…like the “public market” sign in Seattle. It’s pretty cool to see at night…and yes, Alisa is right….the nose is red at Christmas. :)

  5. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Neat. But the building is for lease? What was made there that isn’t any more? Was this Santa’s workshop and reindeer stables? Why the big buck on the sign up there? I hope a local can shed some light on the subject for me besides the nose.

    • Gigi says:

      Thanks for the link Karen Too. Per Wiki, the sign is supposed to read ‘Portland Oregon’ by summer of 2010. Summer is almost gone but the sign hasn’t been changed yet. Does anybody know about this?

  6. Candice in Alabama says:

    I was thinking “john deere”, but maybe not.

    Based on the state shape and map, Matt is somewhere around the M?
