Portlandia - the week that was

After driving to the Mazamas at Mt Hood, and driving to NSAS in Seattle, I had to turn right back around and drive to Portland for a week visiting BCA retailers.  I had to cut this trip short, though - so I missed out on climbing at the local gym like I had hoped.  Thanks to everyone, especially The Mountain Shop and Oregon Mountain Community for their warm welcome.  Next Adventure and Hillcrest Ski and Snowboard should also get a shout out for stopping their work day to listen to an un-planned drop-in-turned clinic.  I'm looking forward to coming down again later this winter and going skiing with you guys!
