Made it to Portland, spent way too much my first day here, but avoided frostbite and learned a bit about how MAX, the subway system, runs. People are quite friendly here, except of course Greyhound's asshole security force. Demanded to see my ticket after using the restroom on arrival. Guess that's how they say "Welcome to Portland, hippie".

Rogue makes pretty good beers but, like most places, can't fry fish worth a damn. No matter, I'm getting some decent rest at my Couchsurfing host's near Beaverton. At this latitude, still have hours to go till dawn.
