What An Adventure So Far...

A beautifully well hopped Sundial IPA. As expected!

 Looks Just Like Back Home. Un-Key-D and Big Water picked me up and we headed towards the coolest "bar" ever. The place is more of a hotel/entertainment building. McMenamins Kenndey School  ( click this link and then Gallery ) has it all. Movie theater, cigar bar, multiple water holes, community center, pool, seating area, and it continues to go on and on. Brilliant!! And right out of the gate, COOLNESS

So the snow is just starting to stick at 8PM

 Yesterday was a travel day. Its been awhile that I have been able to relax and observe mankind. Like, 9 hours worth in the Salt Lake City airport. My day started off early but A - OK. Our Delta Canadair Regional Jet-200 pushed from the gate one minute early.

Then, we sat... we sat some more.. we sat... For nearly an hour. Passengers started losing their marbles. Me, I put in my head phones and checked out.

The only down side of this, my connecting flight was a no go. I was conveniently rebooked on an A-320 scheduled at 3:11pm ( didn't go airborne until 4:57pm ) to Portland Oregon. Our pilot was fantastic as he mentioned we would cruise at 31,000ft, turbulence over Idaho, and a very bumpy approach into Portland. And that is exactly how it played out.

 Portland Oregon received a record amount of snow and has completely shut the town down. The three of us take turns running to the door and peaking out with childish excitement. The city is still, the noise is none, and the massive flakes are falling straight down as if we were in a Bugs Bunny Cartoon. "Should Have Made A Left Turn In Albuquerque"

Big Water has some a pair of telemarks so we are about to trek out to check out the purity from Mother Nature. Remember, Portland receives their far share of rain but never 14 inches of snow. This knowledge is being provided by Big and D who haves lived here for 16 years. We have the whole city to ourselves and that is an exaggerated statement.

Today Is 100% Totally Awesome!! I Am Right Were I Should Be, Right Here Were I Would Like To Be, & I Have A Free Day To Play.
