Who knew Portland had such bad tortuous traffic ?….little dumpy brown city has morphed into “where hipsters go to retire” and a mecca for musicians and creatives. We were stuck, stuck, stuck for almost 2 hours, inching along at 3 p.m. in the most congested mess. Who knew so many people lived in the suburbs of south Portland?
So, WARNING: Portland does have long, long, lines of traffic and you will be stuck for a long time if you drive anytime after 2 p.m. Luckily for us we had good music to listen to and NPR had some good programming. It’s just more of a shocking experience than L.A. traffic because it is not expected.
So, you can see in the photo our bear. His name is George. He was handmade in England . He sits proudly between the seats. When we closing our storage unit, we just could not leave him behind. Now he is like a travel mate and he has amused many people who are surprised to see him. One woman from England offered to buy him!
