After a relaxing and fascinating 32 hour train ride from Union Station (Los Angeles) to Union Station (Portland) we've finally settled a little. We're at the Hawthorne Hostel camping in their back yard ($13 a night...can't beat that). Today we went to the Tour de Fat and rode in a bike parade through the city. Awesome. I met a few people that I have only known through their websites, Jonathan from BikePortland and Dean from Clevercycles, both of whom were really friendly.
Just wanted to do a quick update. I've already shot about 6gigs of images but won't be able to post them until I get home (shooting RAW). Lots to see and lots to do.
