    Portland Oregon has a ton of bike and walking paths that are pretty easy to access from the Jubitz truck stop. It is pretty awesome for a desert rat like me to walk along the Columbia River and see floating houses and try to imagine what they must be like to inhabit.

    Our youngest daughter is an inspiration to us in many ways. She is now a Captain in the Air Force. She is a civil engineer who really enjoys her job and enjoys being in the service and the many opportunities she has. She is also an athlete who has started running marathons.

    Bob and I split our driving shift between 2 and 3 in the morning. Sometimes it can be work to stay alert just before the sun comes up for me. I have downloaded what I call my stay awake music and when I see the sun trying to peak its way out I go to my stay awake music.
