First stop was Portland where I stayed with friends and helped out at the Women's Training Day at the fire station (my friend is a fire fighter)

I mainly watched and took photos

And from a sunny Portland, I reached a rainy Oakridge, just east of Eugene (hummming bird in the rain)

where they were holding the Tynda Burning Moto Man Rally.
