Despite our hotel forgetting to give us an early morning wake up call, we hit the road by 7 am for the eleven hour trek to Portland, Oregon. I went to Portland in my teens for basketball camp and all I remember is TREES EVERYWHERE!! If there is such a thing as a tree phobia, beware! Antz did most of the driving so I could read my new book, Go Set aWatchman by Harper Lee. I love how she dropped her sequel fifty five years later, so gangsta! I love long scenic road trips but by our eighth hour in the car, we were getting restless.
I read most of Go Set a Watchman. I don’t know yet how I feel about it, it’s starts off strong but I fell asleep a few times.
Our first stop was in Eugene which is home to the University of Oregon. We needed gas and was shocked to discover that it’s illegal to pump your own gas in the state of Oregon. We found out the hard way that it’s unnecessary to give them a tip so we ended up having to go in the store and get change for the guy.

The tacos and sangria were muy bueno. Seriously, DO NOT go to Portland because you will never want to leave!
