"If you ever plan to motor west...."  
Well I'm putting on my travelling shoes (no, seriously, I bought special travelling shoes!), because the girl and I are going on a little vacation. This saturday, we'll fly out to Portland and stay with some friend of hers. Not sure what we'll do there. Probably a little hiking, maybe a hot spring. Hey, shethingsmash, are you still in Portland next week or are you back home already?

Then on wednesday night, we're going to fly down to Salt Lake City to convert to the Mormon religion and become polygamists go hiking and drink beer with zeeke and his lovely wife for the rest of the week.

If anybody knows any must-do activities in either place, please do let me know.

if you guys were going to be there from the 25-27, you could get your spooky on and attend some of the convergence events!

It might be too spooky for K. even without the convergence.

R,

I lived there for nearly four years! I can tell you lots about Portland.

Hope you don't have to hike far in new shoes. I'd take the most comfortable ones I have, just in case.

Good point! I hiked a few miles in them last weekend, so I'm hoping they're sufficiently broken in....

See if The Kennedy School is Portland is still there. The McMennimen Brothers converted an entire old elementary school into bars, a restaurant, bed and breakfasts, and a movie theater. And, if you get a chance, go to Clinton Street and visit my favorite bar in the whole world, Dots. Maybe you won't see why it's so special, but it is to me.

I think this pic should be included in the "best of 2007". Hands down.
