I have an opportunity to go 50/50 ownership on starting a food truck in portland/vancouver area. It's a big step and not a decision to be made lightly. So, as the title says, what were the ups and downs of owning a food truck and what was something you wish you knew before starting it up?

Does anyone know what’s going on around the mall? There’s cops everywhere blocking the roads and helicopters and everything

Greetings! Earlier today, I came across this road. Now, I'm new to cycling, and wasn't quite sure what to do; I was on the right shoulder of the road/bike lane, and wanted to continue straight, down 152nd Ave. However, there was a car that wanted to turn right. The traffic light was on green. Do I allow the car to turn, and then go? Do I keep going? Does the bike lane turn into a right only lane as well, and I'm therefore required to turn right?

Also, if I wanted to turn right, do I stay in the bike lane, or switch over to the right only lane?

What do I do?

Hey, I'm looking for a good veterinarian for a cat. I was taking my cat to North County Animal Hospital in Ridgefield but they nickel and dimed me too much. I live near downtown Vancouver, one in that area would be great but I'm willing to drive for someone good.

I had been hauling cans and bottles to Oregon for the bottle return (I work and buy beer in Portland) but they have recently been ID-ing people and turning away WA residents (understandably, I guess).

Anyway, I’ve now been crushing all the cans and sitting on quite the collection; where would be the best place to return them for some quick cash? I have looked up scrap metal places in the area but am having difficulty getting any real info about them. Please let me know if you have any experience with this and can point me in the right direction.

Anyone go to the Gold's Gym at the mall? It would be great to have a workout partner.

I'm doing a Gym Jones program, just not as intense as them. A lot of heavy lifting though. I'm there around 4:30pm.

Hopefully, maybe someone wants to do some lifting?

Hello,

I would like to hear from locals regarding the tech scene in Vancouver. Do you think it is growing or shrinking? Do you see professional opportunities increasing or more IT professionals looking elsewhere for better opportunities? Obviously some commute into Portland for work. But it would be nice to work on WA side when possible.

We're planning a move to Vancouver/Camas. It seems some companies are setting up shop on the WA side in need of tech staff. While I'll be working remotely in IT (software engineer), I wonder what the local scene is like? Do most still cross the bridge into Portland for work? My son will also be majoring in Computer Science and attending Clark College initially while looking for summer internships, etc... before transferring to a WA university.

Thanks,

Derek

The only thing I hated as a transplant was not having barbershop options. The ones in Portland were insanely expensive, but in Vancouver nonexistent. The only one was CamCuts. They were good but still far from what I was used to and you had to schedule an appointment typically. Has that changed at all in the last 5 years?

Hi everyone! I've seen a couple of these posts on here before, but none recently for my area, so I was hoping for some help. . I'm looking for a dentist who is reasonably priced and reliable for doing work. We will need a number of cavities filled so I'm looking for more than just routine cleanings. Thank you all so much! This subreddit has been so helpful since we moved here!

My MIL is going to have back surgery and is going to need close to constant care for about 2 weeks. My husband and I both work full-time and don't have the flexibility to take time off to be there for her. My SIL is a stay-at-home mom so she was planning to do it, but now she has to have surgery at the same time. My question is are there any resources out there for low income people to get the care they need at home after a major surgery? I don't even know where to begin looking, so I'm hoping someone here might be able to point me in the right direction. Thank you!

I am not looking for a lawn care service. I am just looking for a professional who can come over and give me advice as to what I need to get a nice lawn. Does anyone know of someone like that in the area?

I have tried everything and just can't get grass to grow without weeds taking over. I am sick of being surrounded by old retired people with great lawns and I am stuck with burnt weeds...

Me again. Trying to sign on an apartment from 2000 miles away is not fun, especially when every apt complex gets terrible reviews. Any that you would recommend? Not set on any specific location, looking for a pet friendly 2bed with parking for two cars.

Do yourself a favor and do not use Jill Markos DDS as your dentist. I made an appointment, gave them all my insurance over the phone and showed up and they never bothered to run my paperwork. So they laughingly suggested that I needed to make another appointment because they had "forgot" to run my paperwork. However I had to take time off work to make the appointment, but they didn't seem to care about that. Not even an apology or any acknowledgement that they completely wasted my time. I just cannot figure out why it is so difficult to find a dentist in this town that isn't lazy.

Hi!
My husband and I are relocating to Vancouver in about two weeks from Chicago. Any suggestions and/or recommendations on gyms, must-visit bars/restaurants, or anything else we should/might want to know would be fantastic! We're both from the midwest so the PNW will be pretty new to us. We have two dogs (shiba inu) and enjoy hiking, drinking, eating, and #livingourbestlife.

Alsooooo I'm job hunting if anyone needs an experienced Pastry Chef :)

I think I just heard fighter jets take off from PDX. At least three so far. I feel like that's not normal operating hours. Any insight to anything that might be going on?

Hey folks, my blue 2003 Subaru Legacy was stolen while I spent the night with a friend. I was at 38th Ave and Tillamook St. The theft occurred sometime between 9:30 PM 9/9 and 6:00 AM 9/10. Police report filed but I’m really hoping someone might see it around town. The car has a Thule Mountaineer clamshell on top and North Carolina plates, FCM-4738. There are a few stickers on the back of the car: an AmeriCorps logo, a sticker from the Nevada Conservation Corps, a Great Basin Community Food Co-Op Sticker, and a hockey sticker. I work in conservation but I live in the car on my time off - all of my work/camp gear was left in the car since I was spending the night inside. I can couchsurf for a couple weeks if I have to but that car is my home and I need that gear. I’m really in a bind here. Police case number is 18-309410. Long shot, but PLEASE pm me if you get a lead.

This is a megathread for updates and resources on the ongoing series of teacher's strikes that are taking place conveniently at the start of the school year. Because we now have a megathread, we will remove school strike posts from the subreddit and ask you to repost them here for the time being.

Prior thread

At a glance: September 16

  • Battle Ground Public Schools: Open September 17.

Let's recap: What happened?

After two weeks of contentious negotiation between districts and educators' unions centering mostly on allocation of state funds only one district remains on strike. Last week saw the two largest districts, Vancouver Public Schools and Evergreen Public Schools come to quick, popular agreements that generally split the middle ground between union targets and district administration budgets. The next largest district, Battle Ground Public Schools, is the only holdout.

This will probably be the last megathread, because it's only one district at this point and I also really hope they get things settled. If it gets too big I might make a new one, but I think this will be it. Thanks to everyone who read and participated.

Hi! I'm moderately new the the Couve and I still haven't really made friends. I like going on intense hikes that include scrambling, mild rock climbing, wet-suit swimming and anything exciting! I'm a pretty talented drummer always looking to play and I'm also a mild gamer on Ps4 and PC. Direct message if you think i'm friend material :)

Howdy, I was invited to an event in a place called "Stone Thrones" in Washington. I know it is in the woods somewhere. Has anyone heard of this before? I know that there are restrooms in the vicinity. So I am assuming it is a campground. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I'm looking for a few recommendations for a dentist, near the hazel Dell south area. Went to Modern Dentistry and it very much felt more like a sales pitch than anything. And all I wanted was a general cleaning! Where do you go, and do you enjoy them?

Thanks!!
