Sunday, March 11, 2007

Our campsite had a sign that explicitly said, “Caution: You are in bear country!”

I can’t say that I was paranoid, but I was definitely aware. So, when I woke up in the middle night, and heard some rustling against our tent, and some growling, I got understandably concerned. THEN, I realized that it was actually Adam next to me proving his qualifications for the Tour de Snore. I know that I’ve found the right group of friends because we all wake up in the morning cranky from a restless sleep because the other two's snoring kept us up. =0)

Just to give you an example, here's a resident snore chief showing us how it's done in the car.

For us, the state of Oregon will always be known for:
  1. Their nice bridges

  2. Their beautiful coast

  3. Their SLOW drivers.

We saw mileage signs for 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55 on a HIGHWAY. Is that even possible?!

Anyway, we had to improvise a little so that we could get to Tillamook Cheese Factory in time. (Including a quick make shift PEE-stop.)

Eventually, we made it to Tillamook and had some amazing cheese and ice cream.

We checked into our Days Inn City Center in Portland’s Downtown District. We found an awesome restaurant called Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery, (where when you call they answer, “Hello, You’ve Hit Rock Bottom!”)

The two scariest thugs I know, showing what napkins should look like after eating wings.

A little downtown walking and we went to sleep early.
