    Matt, this is completely not about grandparenting!

    1. If you continue on the northern route, once you get into Oregon, you might really enjoy walking the Historic Columbia Gorge Highway. I did a marathon a couple years back that followed the highway from The Dalles in the east to where it’s closed to traffic in Mosier, and becomes a multimodal trail there (called the two tunnels) which goes into Hood River. It’s really beautiful, and for the most part, traffic is slow — however, in portions there is very little shoulder.

    2. Do you have a place to stay yet in Portland, OR? I’d be glad to offer you my backyard/back porch.

    I’m really enjoying reading your tumblr blog, and am envious of your travels…

    I found your blog when a friend posted your blog on her facebook page. Your journey, so far has taken you 71 days while it only took me 3 hours. I now look forward to travelling the rest of the way you.

    The pictures and items of interest you post are fun and interesting. I have laughed quite a bit while catching up on your journey.
