Actually, that’s not lazy. That’s just working smart and I respect that.
Now, I know this is going to sound crazy but I personally think it’s the whole Cascade range and potentially indirectly related to the Shanghai curse of Portland.
In my case, the misfortune I suffered while living there may be a generational curse for which the great ancestral tribal spirits or the great mother rock of Mt. Hood were still looking for some payback.
My great grandfather was a wealthy lumberman from England named Turner. He started his raping of the land mercilessly cutting down trees in northern Ohio and then became ill and was advised to move to the PNW to regain his health. While there, he continued his exploits cutting down trees, like lumberman do.
You can never say for sure but again… “somethin ain’t right”.
