Driving from Denver, Colorado, to Portland, Oregon, for a wedding. Internet access may be limited. I will return July 5. Don't worry if I don't respond to your assignment right away.

Have fun

Ah, Portland. One of my favorite cities. Be sure to stop by Lloyd Center if you get a chance. It's a shopping mall, but what a shopping mall.
This will also give me time to get ahead of the game.
Have fun on your vacation.

Portland is lovely. If you don't know Zell's and it's still there, go there for breakfast if you get a chance. It's an excellent breakfast place that would plop a basket of fresh-baked mini-scones onto your table soon after you sat down.

Looks like you have your "work" cut out for you in Portland.

Well --- from Denver, Colorado, to Portland, Oregon is more than a couple hundred miles if my sum is correct. While you're there I hope you get to take care of some odd-or-even things, but don't leap into anything without first doing a quick lookup in the yellow pages.
Say, about the wedding, don't forget the grains of rice to throw at the newlyweds. And if you get involved in sending out thank you notes it makes it easier if you sort-names before making them out. Anyway you should get in some really good geekwatch'g while in Portland, I hear they have their own natural-language-multiply way of figuring tips so be careful when eating out.

I like that, Richard. Coool!

I'm back, but I sure am tired. We drove about 3,600 miles altogether, my daughter, my 6 month old grandaughter and I.

We drove north from Denver, through Wyoming and into Montana. We got to Butte, Montana, about 4 am and slept for 4 hours. Then we drove across Montana (beautiful, green, rocky mountains), stopping in Missoula to see the hand-carved carousel, to Paul Wheaton's new farm just north of Spokane, Washington. Lots of work to be done to make it be a productive farm, but the land is absolutely gorgeous! We saw the new chicks that are just beginning to feather. Heard frogs in the frog pond but didn't see any, and fed the fish in the freshly stocked fish pond.

Back on the road again after lunch to Seattle, Washington. We got to the motel about 8:30 pm and I crashed (I mean, fell asleep). In the morning we drove from Seattle to Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada). The trees along the way were outstandingly beautiful, so tall and so many shades of green. And the ocean, of course, was absolutely breathtaking as well. We went to the park there and visited the aquarium. They have Beluga whales, and they allow certain people to feed/touch/play with them. Back to Seattle late in the evening. We wanted to eat on the pier, but simply ran out of time.

Next day (Saturday) we drove from Seattle to Portland, Oregon, and went to a beautiful, simple wedding (my niece's) and reception.

I'll continue this later. I have to leave for work now.

Wish I did the trip. I love driving long distances and seeing nature. My dad believes that God is nature and sometimes when I see the beauty of it I think he might have a point there.
I can understand Paul's motiovation to live on a farm. What fish has he got in the pond, trout ??.

Yes, rainbow trout at this time
Good that you had a break Marilyn.

Continuing my saga:
Sunday was a day of rest. We went to church and out to dinner and visited with the family.

Monday we went to the beach at the Oregon coast. I got a mild sunburn. That part of the Pacific Ocean is COLD!

Tuesday and Wednesday we drove back to Denver by way of Boise, Idaho, Ogden, Utah, and Laramie, Wyoming. It was a long, hot drive. We were glad to get home, even though we were too late to see the fireworks (Independence Day).
