Hey, fun read...did you know Astoria (my town) is a huge COAST GUARD town? Houses are pretty cheap here. Just a random thought!

Kara and Theo said...

I have friends that are up in Astoria. I would love to check Oregon out sometime, but we just never got the chance to get up there. Who knows, maybe we will be stationed there someday.
