Portland-Day 1

Posted in Portland on August 16th, 2007 by James

The trip started Tuesday after I got off work. I managed to get off a bit early. Which at that point I ran home, packed up the car, finished up the last little things. Didn’t hit the road till about 7pm. We then processed to drive on up to Boise, ID. The drive up there was nothing special and exciting. Got up to Boise and got our room at Motel 6. That place has gotten really cheap, far from anything special. I remember Motel 6 being nicer, but it had 4 walls and a roof. That’s all that mattered. We then ran to a Burger King that was 24/7. We didn’t make it to boise till about 11:00 if I remember right.

Day 5-Portland-Sunday

Posted in Vacation on October 22nd, 2006 by James

Sad to leave, but happy to get back home if that makes any sence. Really wish we had more time to spend up there. Another day, or two days would have been great. We packed the car and were on our way. If my memory serves me correct, we left at around 8am (PST). Load the gas up with gas, grabbed some food from McDonalds and we were on our way.

Day 4-Portland-Saturday

Posted in Vacation on October 22nd, 2006 by James

After the long night, yes the hang over was far from nice. I think I got up out of bed around 10ish. Justine was still in bed, I managed to make it down the stairs, grab a drink, then outside for smoking. As I was outside smoking I thought to myself the same thing that any other person would think if they were hung over. ‘I’m never going to drink again’. After my smoke, I dragged my butt back upstairs. I think I managed to get some more sleep. Woke up, took a shower. The shower went well, except for throwing up some water, dry heaving for a bit. Actually, it was alot of dry heaving. Atleast I was in the shower. Could have been worse. The shower did wonders, I gave Jason Reese a call and we decided to hang out for a bit. Val didn’t want to go, so just me and Justine ended up going.

Day 1-Portland-Wednesday

Posted in Vacation on October 13th, 2006 by James

It’s gonna take a bit to update all of the fun that were having. Here is the first leg of the trip.

Wednesday I was able to get off from work. Which was very much needed. Cleaned the car really good, packed our stuff, got the kids off to school, and gave my self a heart attack thinking I lost my drivers license. DL turned up the in the dryer.

Got the kids from school at around 2:00. Finished up packing and left at around 2:30. Stopped at Cafe Rio for a quick bite (damn Cafe Rio is good). From there went to my parents house to drop the cat off. My brother Jacob was there along with his wife and Angel. It was nice seeing them again. I don’t see Jacob’s family as much as I should.
