Countdown to Oregon

I think it's safe to say I won't be getting much work done this week.

Lady Luck and I are flying into Portland on Friday night. We haven't decided yet whether we're staying in Portland a day or two, heading south right away, or west to Astoria and then south. I assume we'll get that figured out tonight or tomorrow.

I was hoping the Lady Washington was going to be in Portland while we're there, but it doesn't appear to be. Oh well.

Anyhoo, I expect we'll be hitting Albany, Corvallis, maybe Eugene depending on how far south of Yachats we want to end up.

This trip is half vacation and half deciding where we want to live when we finally blow this hole, so if you've got any advice on places to check out, that'd be awesome. I'd also love to hear about the reality of living in a given city.

Lucky: I give a big thumbs up to Corvallis. Troubadour and I moved here from British Columbia in January of 2001 and love it, been here every since. Less wind and rain than the coast. College town, 50k people, great pizza and lots of motorcycles. If you are in Corvallis on July 1st stop by American Dream Pizza on 2nd street for Corvallis Bike Night and meet Stacy from bolty.net and Brad from Troubadour on a Triumph and yours truly - Brandy.

Oh, I'm sure you'll get plenty of opinions!

As Brandy said, Wednesday the 1st is Bike Night in Corvallis. But if you're in town on another day, shoot me an email at bolt250 -at- gmail -dot- com and I'll try to organize something.

Trobairitz & Stacy - Looks like we're going to be in your part of town this Saturday. If you're going to be around, it'd be cool to meet up. Lady Luck and I will bring the brushes if you can supply the red paint.

mq01 - Thanks!
