Wow – I can’t believe I will be leaving Oregon in less than 2 weeks. Summer sure passed by in a blur. Before I start my southern journey, a special guest arrives to share the tourist experience of the Columbia Gorge with me. So much more fun to share the sights with someone than to venture out alone.
Michele flies into Portland a week or so ago. We spend almost a week checking out the Columbia Gorge tourist sights in both Washington and Oregon. My video below allows you to share our adventures with us.
As we pack a picnic to leave the first morning for our trip to Mount Saint Helens, Michele asks if I have prepared a “clipboard of fun” for her visit. I have not. It seems she has traveled in the past with friends who were much better organized travel hosts than I am.
Instead of a clipboard, I have a cryptic “sticky note of fun” (see photo on left). I hope my plans will be enough to make her visit with me worth the trip up here.

Living the dream you are! The rest of us are so happy for you and a bit jelly at same time. Crank up the home, hit the road, and keep us on the ridealong. Yay.. jim
I love that you ride along with me! The more the merrier!
Words cannot describe you. You are amazing and we enjoy your blogs so much. Thanks for taking the time to share them. We have been at Mt St Helen’s and really enjoyed it a lot but this is great and we saw things we did not see before. You girls should send this to the state and you can make some money on advertising. Thanks again, stay sweet, young, happy and don’t stop sending the notes to us. >)))) GOD BLESS

Well sometimes people do use words to describe me but since this is a family website I will keep those to myself ?. So glad that you enjoy the post, it means a lot to me that you follow along on my adventures – love you!
Oh Deb, this was a beautiful trip! You gave me even more reasons to visit that part of the country. Thanks for taking us along! Safe travels to your next stop. Love Ya Theresa, Gypsy Violinist
So glad you enjoyed it. You guys stay safe too – will be dreaming of the day when we can play fiddles together!!
Hope you have a safe travel and I a happy you have someone to travel with you
Me too, thank you!
Terrie blew the fork seals on her trike on the rough road to Mt St. Helens so we know first hand how rough that road is.
I believe it, we were glad to get back to pavement with no “dips” aka “giant, deep holes”
We’re happy to know they have the train cars in case we get to the area again.
We’d definitely be holding up the line if having to pedal ourselves!!
So glad you are sharing your adventures with us!

That throttle thing worked pretty good until it ran out of battery. Then it was all on us!
Love the adventures!!! If you need a place to rest one night, Tim and I are right of 75, Dade City, FL.
Rock on, I mean fiddle on girl 🙂

Wow, that is a great offer! I will keep it in mind!!
