We've been on the road for 5 days now, most of the last three visiting with Rod's pop in Sublimity and friends in Hillsboro. No access to wi-fi except the local library, so once we get to our destination in Idaho I'll have tales to share that range from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Oregon is in full bloom: iris, rhodies, wildflowers and seed farms with acres of white and yellow. We've stuck to back roads and blue highways, well worth the extra time it takes to get to a destination. Stormy with intermittent sunshine.
