Of all the places I’ve had to travel “on business” I think that Portland is probably the top of my list of places I’d want to come on vacation. Or even move to.
Of course, I expect that I’d want to do a little more research before I call Two Men And A Truck. I don’t actually know anythina about the area much past that you get scolded if you try to pump your own gas here, and that it’s impossible to get out of sight of a coffee shop anywhere downtown.
I’m at the Days Inn City Center, perhaps 8 or 10 blocks from the conference. I’ve actually stayed here before. Twice. In the DataBeam days, when on a customer visit. Maybe I’ll drop in on the customer.
