There’s a whole lot of Montana.
We expected to be driving through the Rockies, but got the Oregon Plateau instead. Then the Columbia River showed up to knock our socks off.
Starting a race in the dark is odd. Starting in the dark in the rain is daunting. Running the race was better than we expected. Thank you, Portland, for giving us a marathon and half-marathon to enjoy this trip.
The iPad is super cool, and one of the best things for travel ever, and that list includes airplanes, good hotel beds, and immunizations. We’ve used it as computer, as I’m doing right now, as a map, as a locator for restaurants, a toy (new game- Cut the String), a tv, a radio, a notebook for our trip plans. Seriously, a game-changer.
The roasted chicken craze in grocery stores is a gift to budget-conscious travelers.
Our kids crack us up. Hilarious.
A day of race expo, Knit Purl, and Powells is a day of tempting choices.
