I used to live in Portland. Awesome town full of some pretty cool folks. If this is your first burn please please please remember how dry it is here. When I moved to Reno from Vancouver, WA I was sick for a solid month and a half and that was just in the city. I lost my voice, my sinuses went crazy, and I got nosebleeds almost daily for the first few YEARS I lived here. BRC is even dryer, and you're gonna want to be extra hydrated and bring eye drops, lotion, and saline nasal spray. Be prepared to sound like you smoke a pack a day by mid-week.
