Hello from Portland, Oregon

I don't have much time to post at the moment. Planner Guy and I will shortly be on our way out for sushi somewhere near Hotel de Luxe. It is easy to see why Portland is the bike commuting capital of the United States. Everything and everyone seems to acccommodate bicyclists. Bike lanes, multi-use paths, bike racks, and drivers who share the road without honking and yelling (at least that was our experience in 24 hours of pedaling around downtown). I'll have more to report tomorrow afternoon upon our return to Flagstaff. Our trip has been great but disrupted by the news that our little dog Jade had to be hospitalized yesterday morning. Thank goodness for cell phones, and a good neighbor and co-workers to help us and our pets.

Later all.

I hope your trip has been wonderful! Special thoughts go out to you and Jade. I hope Jade will be just fine.

Thanks for your good thoughts for little Jade. It was a bit of a shock to see her when we arrived home but she seems to be doing better and we are anxious to get her home.

Our trip was great. We definitely fell in love with Portland. It was even better than I remembered.
