Will be in Portland, OR

I'm probably going to be in Portland this weekend (Imbler, not Maine). If anyone wants to have coffee (or actually, coffeed mud) @ Stump Town (on Belmont) on Sat. or Sunday email me (this doesn't include you B.H.G.-I'll give you a call before I show up).

Portland, eh? I was there less than a month ago, visiting the west coast. Very nice - my wife and I have thought of moving there (but right now we're waiting for the outcome of the Free State Project vote...).
I assume you've been to Powell's bookstore? One of the city's major attractions (to me).

yeah, powell's is phat. i lived in portland between june & dec. of 2002. but you know powell's has a lot of their books in a warehouse and they shelve them in the store??? you have to order them online-even if you live in the city. powell's technical in particular is pretty mind-blowing....

Didn't get to Powell's technical - would have been nice. It's kind of oppressive in the same way that a good library is - it presents you with more stuff that you would like to read than you can possibly finish. Pretty good coffee in their coffeeshop, too.
