Sometimes our adventures are on the road between trips. We just finished spending a couple of months in the Portland area, an interesting and somewhat complicated time. Donna dealt with a cracked tooth that ultimately had to be pulled. Plans for an implant are in the future. Don was dealing with elderly parents and all the issues that go along with that. A high point though was being able to spend time with Jeff who had moved to Portland in June to work with a company called ESRI. We finished packing up our car in a rare dry moment. The rivers were flooding, the ground saturated. We were looking forward to being on the road and heading toward a drier climate.
