Seattle was so grey. I can see why Kurt Cobain shout himself! No it wasn't that bad but i was pleased it wasn't grey anymore.
I got the greyhound down and lucky me got sat next to a chritian missionary who talked to me about heaven and his church congregation and well you get the idea. IPOD!!
Got here and met up with the guys and headed to a friends for a night of beer and BBQ. It was wicked.
Next morning we headed to some outlet shops and looked at the stupidly cheap stuff!
It was cool, 360's jumps the full schebang! Took us on a tour all along the rivers and we saw american bald eagles and stuff!
We got back in and thank god for spare clothes. Queue much changing in the car park and a lot of half naked people driving cars outta there!
We headed back to the motel to sort ourselves out and dry off and went to dinner. We heded down to a bar called Doug Firs, right opposite us and had A LOT to drink.
Saw 2 bands play, Les Sans Cullotes who were wicked, all singing in french but all american!!
Then the detroit cobras came on. I love that band so much and they were perfect. Not one note out of place.
Much jack daniels was consumed and we managed to get in the dressing room and drink with the bands for a while then headed to the garden where there was a really cool fire and we hung out with loads of nice people.
We got back and i was promptly sick
Today we headed up to the mountains to this track where there are loads of waterfalls. The drive was stunning, i love portland and want to move here!! So beautiful.
There is a massive gorge which was breathtaking.
We walked a few of the tracks and got rained on at waterfalls, they were beautiful. Some of them were stupidly high! We even samw some chipmunks on the way!!
Found a wicked tattoo shop and went there and all got booked in! The guys work there was wicked!!
There are a lot of tattooed people here and therefore a lot of very very hot men!! Skate shoes and tattoos!
We checked out some cools shops and went for dinner at a mexican place $4 dinner. a £2 massive burrito! Wicked!!
Tomorrow we're gonna go to mount st helens! As the americans say... AWESOME!!!
