Anyway, glad to have you here!


You are the second person I know to have moved to corvalis! What is it about that town?

Well if you are up to painting the town red one night...let me know...I don't get out nearly enough as I should!



Corvallis is a great town! But it's a small town. Megan and I both seem to escape to Portland nearly every weekend.

I actually wanted to move to Vegas a few years ago. I have some friends there and I really enjoy it each time I visit. I see and hear that it is growing like crazy!

I lived out in Phoenix for a year and loved it!

Corvallis is really a great town and it is consistently voted in the top 10 cities in the US, out of many many thousands of course. Corvallis is where I was born, where my family is and where I've lived most of my life, but like Megan, I feel it is temporary for me too. I'd like to be in a bigger city, a warmer city and maybe I'll make some sort of move within the next year or so.

It looks like you're already meeting some cool people on here.

Have fun, time for me to sleep.

-Robert

Vegas really sucks for the most part. I've lived here for 20 years and I've seen it change. It used to be a great place to live and travel. Now with all the large corporations owning the casinos, it's become less of a town that you can get satisfaction in unless you have the dough!

And Phoenix! Damn, I must say I only spent one day there for MEPS and I hated it! I got there on a day that they had record heat (130degrees + humidity at about 80%!) I don't think I'd ever go back!

One of my great friends moved to Corvalis after high school. Since then he's moved but not before learning the art of microbreweries. I guess it's a big thing to brew your own there?

The whole northwest is home of the microbrews. Oh man, we have the BEST beers here. There's no excuse to ever crack open a regular ole domestic. (Unless you're a broke college student, which, well.....I am :roll: ) I can't wait till the Brewer's fest again....every last weekend of July, at Waterfront Park.....sooo fun. But I digress.....yes, our microbrew culture does lend itself to brewing one's own beer, which in my experience, is in fact also very popular around here.

As far as Corvallis being voted a great town to live in, or whatever.....I have NO idea how that's possible. But that's just me! Robert is far more partial to it because it's his home town, but I can't stand it! I never spend more than 5 days in a row here, and I can't even imagine moving here if not enrolled in the university.

I'm not too much the drinker as I was when I was younger, but the best beer I've ever had by far has got to be Flying Horse. It's an import...sorry, not a microbrew. Indian champagne beer. Soooo bubbly and light. They stopped selling it at Ghandi. :( I wish I could find it somewhere!

LOL! Well, I'll try not to...he's a bit far away any how...well I suppose not for someone who can fly, huh? But well, spandex doesn't quite do it for me..hehe.

Thank you for your welcome...everyone's been soooo great....I'd get all mushy and say this has been one of the better message boards I've been on...but then I'd lose my tough girl fasade!!! You all rock! :D

Welcome, it is great to have another Raw Vegan here. I have not introduced myself yet, have been lurking and posting some. So I am hijaking your introdution post.

I am a newly retired Figure Competitor. I have been training 18 yrs, x cardio queen too, competed 5 years and recently decided to put my competition bikini and clear high heels on a shelf, for good, and take up for a more Balanced Lifestyle.

I like you made the choice to go toward the vegetarian lifestyle, raw too, more for health issues rather than ethics. SO you are not alone here. I too had it with the GM, Pesticides Hormones and such. I am a fanatic about that and eat Organic, locally grown if possible.

SO again welcome !!

Welcome wnddrrwmnn & RawFigure! So glad you both found this great community.

I recently chatted with a woman who runs a mostly vegetarian cooking school & she said they call a raw foods diet a "living foods diet." Have either of you heard that term?


BTW, I love Vegas, but only for about 48 hours, then I gotta get out. One of the characters on CSI said, "Vegas is the most artificial place in the world." I've got to agree. But I do enjoy playing blackjack!

What an adorable avatar!

Yeah, it is a living foods diet. Wow, if only I was versed in raw food preperation...that would be a great school as well! Very time consuming though!

As far as Vegas goes...yep...can't refute CSI. hehe. Everything from the clouds on the ceilings to silicone implants...Vegas is just about the most artificial place! I do love my 24 hour town however...it's a love/hate relationship.
