Anyway...I have leased a 147 year old house in Port Gamble, Washington, as my base of operations. Retail shop downstairs and internet operations upstairs. I have always loved Port Gamble, which is a bit of an anomaly out here in the Pacific Northwest. It's a true company town, built in the mid-19th century to house lumber workers (my place used to belong to the doctor and it had rooms for patients, so it's pretty big.) The lumber company was from Maine, and the houses were built accordingly, in a northeast style you don't often see here. A lovely place to go to work, and it's only 10 minutes from my house, AND backs up to the trails I like to run on. It couldn't be better. By the end of next week I expect to be open for business, both in the store and on the web, doing something I've always wanted to do.
