A town in Washington state, situated near the foot of Mt. Rainier where the Carbon and Puyallup rivers meet. Originally formed for loggers and farmers, which is why there are used to be so many farms. Over the past several years, the farms have turned into housing developments and terrible traffic in the mornings.
No one's ever heard of Orting unless they live there, and except a few people from the surrounding towns when they vaguely remember they drove through it on their way to some remote mountain destination.
Filled with white trash, lots of emos kids, druggies, potential suicides, pre/teen sex, high school football and Carhartt jackets. The housing developments have added some more 'normal' families intent on living in a place with the beautiful scenic views--except it was only there before all the houses were added into the valley.
Also has the Orting Trail, which used to be a railroad and was changed into a paved trail. Not only that, but if Mt. Rainier explodes, it's supposed to function as the escape route from the lahar for grade schoolers. Good luck with that, kiddies.
Anywhere 20 miles or more from Orting city limits:
"So, where're you from?"
"Near Mt. Rainier... and Sumner, Bonney Lake, Buckley, Enumclaw, etc."
"No way! You've actually heard of it??"
"...I think I drove through it once."
