Go Back
  • YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, that went smoothly.  Portland I like your style, it's fast, friendly, and full of the tight pants.  You like your beers cold and your parties in a park.Right now (after loading the trucks) I am totally worked over so I just going to hit on the big points then try not to fall asleep in my soup.  We raised over 10,000 bucks for BTA and NWTA (formally PUMP) and with the work they put in, they certainly deserve it.  And with all that beer sales and hanging out we carried a 94% waste diversion rate.  Pat yourselves on the back Portland, that was totally kick-ass.I'm out_JUICEBOX.

  • Trade my car for a bike: Portland

    To Be Car Free
    an essay by Noah
    Trade my car for a bike in PortlandMeet Stacy, she is a fun loving Chevrolet Malibu with an engine humming to the tune of 230,000 miles of adventure and with the repair bills to prove it.Stacy clearly loves bicycles, but then again she has a dark side. In Las Vegas she felt threatened by the new found love of "Nervous Nellie" the Blue Nishiki that rode on her roof for 5500 miles around the country. So she did what any overprotective lover would do in the situation; attempted a homicide on my beloved bike. Nervous Nellie met a concrete parking garage and had to be put down once arriving in Portland. Mine and Stacy's relationship has never been the same, rocky to say ...

  • Trade my car for a bike: Portland

    For us, at the heart of car free living is a choose your own adventure: live the 7-11 life or bring our subterranean square of suburbia just a little closer to the tiny cabin in the big woods with the foosball table on the porch.Cars make life easy and easy inevitably translates into empty consumption. Or, for those of us less inclined towards mathematical figurings: cars = convenience = empty consumption. Getting by on a bike requires planning and intent. This is not a bad thing!

  • Who knew Portland could be so warm...

    And by warm I mean hot, super hot, like HOTT! hot. But the good news is that after spending 35 hours working out in the direct sun, I have a killer suntan, and I think it makes me look pretty. and finally ready for summer swim wear. Up until now I have been feeling a little pasty on the arms, and my farmers tan had yet to fully blossum. After Portland all that has been taken care of, my neck is carryng a nice tomato hue and my arms are looking like the shell of a coconut, dark brown and woody, cracking in a few spots. And my legs, whooo boy. As if you didn't know, i love the jean shorts, they pretty much are ...
