Yesterday was low travel.  I boxed the city while driving, making sure to cross the bridges and get my bearings to see where I could spend some time.  I ate lunch downtown, walked along the waterfront, then I parked way north of the Pearl neighborhood where they don't charge to park.  I got my stuff and hoofed all the way SE and started criss-crossing my way back to the van.  It was a good way to see a lot of Portland quick.  I ended up at a local joint playing pool with a dude named Charlie and Bono from U2 who was flipping me shit about missing a shot.  I couldn't think of an appropriate song title or lyric to smack him down with so I just said, "piss off, Bono, nice glasses!

The bartender Alicia was from Grand Rapids and let have free pool.  I slept in a nearing industrial block around the corner and made an early hasty get away.
Next up-- back to the woods.

Not many Portland pics, didn't want to be a tourist.

glad Bono's bad back is rehabbed to the point where he can shoot some stick in the rose city - funny - i just read in rolling stone u2 was continuing their tour in europe - huh - those lying bastards.

any founders, arcadia, or bells to be found out there? i'm sure they have a plethora of their own small brews.
