Merciful reader. It’s now April and what I’m about to tell you happened roughly 6 months ago. What does this tell us? I’m lazy, perhaps. Writing this blog isn’t my main priority, maybe.

For now we’ll return to Oregon, our second state in the US.

The ride into Portland might have been downhill but it weren’t pretty… Continue reading Some from Northern & Central Oregon coast, some token Portland shots
Greetings dear reader. Once again much has happened since we last spoke but alas there is not time to tell you about all of that here.
