On to Portland

We finally decided to head to Portland towing our 2004 Honda Element. A little way down the road, we saw a sign that said Ainsworth State Park. We have been impressed by what we’ve seen of Oregon’s State Parks so we decided to go take a look. We didn’t end up in the Park, but…

A Few More Days in Hood River

We weren’t sure exactly where we wanted to go once the Hood River Bluebird Wanderlodge Rally was over. We knew we wanted to stop and visit My Uncle and Aunt, head to Portland to visit my cousin and then to Victoria to visit Shahin’s cousin. So we moved just a little bit down the road…

Adventures in Albuquerque (part deux)

Up with the sun has been the norm for us this trip. Whether because of the constantly changing time zones or just our excitement and eagerness for what’s next, we have been up early every day. In spite of not getting to bed until 4, we were up by 7 am having breakfast and trying…
