I don't know where you're heading home to but you sure picked a perfect time weather wise to visit Portland. I hope you enjoyed your time here!

I used to live there, back when St Helen's was a full sized mountain. My mom was born and raised there. My cousin just moved back there last year, after being here in Florida for 25 years. He has been rethinking that move lately. I wouldn't be surprised if he moves back here.

Oregon is a beautiful state, I'd like to send Debbie there to tour it with my cousing.

I had a 24' 1967 Thunderbird Formula with the original Buick 326. Just sold it to my nephew who had been bugging me about it for years. It wasn't too fast with the 326 but great on fuel. We generally boated west of the I-5 bridge down to about Kalama. 24’ was an easy tow to our annual 2 week vacation to the hydro’s in Seattle and then to the San Juan Islands. Humm, guess I’ll have to start looking for another boat.
