But they employ relatively few.  Amazon is huge at the national level of commerce, but each fulfillment and sort center only employs 1,000-3,000 I believe.  They only have one of each in each state (almost) and maybe a few in CA and TX.  One large hospital in one city employees far more than all Amazon facilities in the entire state.  Amazon is huge in terms of amount of product moved, but very streamlined when it comes to actual bodies.  And more and more of those functions are going to be automated in the very near future.

Further much of the human labor is seasonal.

We have friends north of Spokane towards Deer Park. Very affordable (compared to W.Wa) and beautiful up there. It's like 35min from Spokane, unless you get stuck behind someone slow...then it'll take a while.
The wife and I have considered the area, but would rather escape across the border. Even though ID housing prices have risen as of late, we don't like the idea of the seattle culture setting state legislation for us anymore. Even in western Wa the culture drastically changes outside of King Co.

I'm surprised Amazon isn't on there yet.

Seems like they have fulfillment centers popping up everywhere these days.

Well I pulled the trigger pun intended bought the ar platform in 300 blackout pics to follow.  They are very nice and knowledgeable.  Each gun comes with a one on one class with the owner to show begainers how to breakdown a rifle and basic knowledge and some shooting.  Can’t wait to send some lead down range.

I expect that you will be happy with it as they are very capable , look forward to a use report.

Chemsoldier the recipe I use is in this book by Charmaine Solomon. I'm almost positive it is still under copyright so I'll refrain from posting the recipe or even a link I found to it.

I make a green kimchi from a book I have. It's very similar to this but doesn't use the red pepper flakes (gochugaru). The kimchi I buy is similar also. BTW when I buy it I put a small plastic tub in the floor of the car. The kimchi often starts fermenting again and overflowing the jar even with the lid tight.

Cheap fixin's. I used to pay $1 for 7 pkg. now it's getting expensive $1 for 5 pkg. I always bought by the case of 24. I need to start making kimchi again, that stuff isn't cheap. I had to pay $11 for a half gallon a couple weeks ago.
Now you are teasing. Kimchi recipe please.

Hello TSP!
I am a long time listener but haven't really popped in the forums very often. 

Anyway, I am just beginning a journey into trying to get back to property ownership.  After a divorce that left me nearly penniless, I am finally rebuilding my life to something more like human and I am desperate to get back into property ownership.  Problem is, I am currently living and working in California!  To be fair, I live in the north state which is truly gorgeous, however and as always, the people really screw a place up. 

I am looking at getting property in Washington State and I was hoping to get some feedback from people who have experience in the eastern part.  I am hoping to stay in property management after I find a property, so i would need to be within 30 minutes drive to a major city.  With that in mind, I have been looking to the rural area's outside of Spokane.  Property in this area is not only radically better priced than any California counterpart, but the state also has radically less people to go on a screw up the state rampage!  At least I hope that is the case.

What are the building codes like (looking to homestead with either a small house or do alternative housing)
What are good fruits and veggies that grow well in the region?
Is the job market decent in the Spokane area?
What is the eastern states culture like?
