Clackamas is a county.  Milwaukie, Oregon City, Gladstone, Happy Valley, Damascus, Boring, Estacada (getting more and more remote as I go down the list) would also object to being called part of Portland. 

The Portland Conurbation I could accept.  But saying that Hillsboro is a suburb of Portland is like saying that Tacoma is a suburb of Seattle.  Tongue

Clackamas is also a town, dear.  That's where Clackamas Town Center is located.  Tongue

Hillsboro is WAY closer to PDX that Tacoma to Seattle.

Northern Kentucky Steampunk (Alexandria, Ky, specifically), reporting in. And apparently the only one in NKY... I've tried to convert some of the non-believers over to the steamside, but it seems the forces of Ninjas and cyberpunk have taken over my area.  Angry

Clackamas is apparently a  "Census Designated Place".  It's an area that people live in, but it is not an actual town.  Clackamas Town Center is... A shopping mall. Happy Valley is however a City (even though it has a lower population).

Don't ask me how they make these distinctions.

Livonia, Michigan is where I live, but Honey Creek, Indiana (near Muncie) is my home.

well they are all apart of the metropolitan area, but if you pay enough attention to the railroads then you can spot town or city signs that designate the town or city limits (or at least that is what they were back in the Railroading days>

Jersey Village, Texas, a "Bedroom Community"  just outside of  Houston, Texas, and Too Damn Far (TDF) from any major -Con. However, we do ahve Houston, Wiuch has the
1. Port of Houston, where steam-powered ships still call. and try not to rust as they wait for cargoes or to unload.
2. Battleship Texas, which used to steam all over the place, but now sits and tries not to rust whilst little children play with her guns.
3. San Jacinto Monument, erected to commemorate a battle fought when England was still in its Regency. Not sure if it can rust or not.
4. Runaway Scrape (Regency) -era reenactments. anything still extant from this period is almost guaranteed to be a little rusty, at least.
5. North Harris County Dulcimer Society, which plays tunes that date from before the (american) revolution, all the way up to about 1918 or 20 or so. Welll... My banjo rusts occasionally...

I've seen Boston mentioned a number of times in this and other threads - being nearby, could anyone direct me to an active SP group in that shining city?

Active? no. everyone is too busy with school, methinks. Then again, I might be missing something...

Perchance someone residing therein would kindly start a Boston Steampunk thread, so that we may take a headcount and possibly arrange for events?   Wink

Probably one of the only steampirates to hail from the Reno, Nevada area, unless the others are hiding in airships behind the mountains. I'm brand-new to this board; is there an introduction thread or any other protocol I should follow to say hello?

Why thank you! I wandered aimlessly around the boards for a few minutes trying to find an intro thread before noticing that my 3yo was washing my 16yo's iPod in the bathroom sink, then I lost direction entirely. Grin

That in itself is reason to attend Burning Man!! I worked at the Denny's off I-80 and McCarran for several years and we'd get the burners as customers both going in and coming out. It was my favorite week to work.

Reporting in from Michigan. Hopefully tomorrow's snowstorm won't affect my dirigible's fuel efficiency overmuch.
