Day -1: Arriving in Portland

Today’s Highlights:

I arrived in Portland around midnight Pacific time and was at my sister’s house around 1am.  The trip went very smoothly.  My son, Chris, arrived about 11 hours later, having left Washington DC very early this morning.  After lunch with Jane, Kevin and Aaron, we made our first sightseeing trip to the Renovo Hardwood Bicycles company.  Their only shop is here in Portland.  What luck!  We met with the production manager and had a private tour of the workshop where he showed us every step of the process from the rough lumber to wrapping up one happy customers bike.  The bikes are gorgeous and very high quality.  I think I would have as much fun making them as riding one.  Check out their website

Tonight we will have a cookout and then catch up on some rest before our drive to the coast tomorrow morning.
