    A new job title: reporter/paginator.
    It is a nice part of the coast, but remember it's always sweater weather despite being near water (and this is the Tillamook of the cheese fame).

    I've been to Tillamook and it's a beautiful place. The cheese factory had this root beer ice cream that was possibly the best ice cream on the planet. When i called the local movie theater i asked about movie times. The lady said, "Birdcage 7 o'clock." I waited for more times and other movies, but that was it - one movie with one showing. This was 10 years ago so maybe things have changed but it was a pretty dead town as I recall

    Pay level: Less than an editor
    Amount of crap to put up with from the publisher: More than you deserve

    You'll quickly realize that Tillamook makes more than just awesome Cheddar cheese, there's all different types of cheese, not to mention all other dairy products and some pretty dank ice cream.

    The only one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends who's actually tolerable is from Tillamook.

    Town gets 90 inches of rain a year and it almost gets to 70 degrees in the summer.

    Yup. Best cheese around, and damn fine yogurt, too.

    Tillamook High -- whose mascot, shockingly, is the Cheesemakers -- is a solid 4A program.

    I don't know which part of this interests me more. The fact that you know Hef's girlfriends or that you know them well enough to know their personalities.

    The flip side: that stench of manure that lingers over the town. You would have to get used to that.

    the availability of cheese, ice cream and sour cream is worth the smell.

    There's a sweet hike outside of town that takes you down to the ocean. And when you get there, there might be eight other people. You could walk a mile down the beach, camp out for a week and nobody would bother you. Beautiful place.
     
  12. Tillamook (and the Oregon coast in general) is a beautiful place, for sure, but a single guy could go stir crazy there pretty quickly. If you're looking to settle down and live life at a relatively slow place, it's not too bad. As with most locations in Oregon, if you're into outdoor activities you'll be in heaven. And my understanding is that the cost of living isn't too high relative to some other Oregon towns (Portland, Bend, etc.).
