The ManFlesh and I are moving ourselves, our 2 young dogs, and Bigfoot from Portland, Oregon (pop. 593,820) to Florence*, Montana (pop. 765). Our Portland life includes a 2800 sq ft craftsman bungalow within walking distance of tons of great restaurants and bars, a handful of grocery stores, two hardware stores, three pet stores and at least two tattoo parlors and guitar shops.

We will drive into town to pick up our mail at the Post Office.
