I moved to portland and promptly got rid of all my plaid simply because it’s all ANYONE wears here. Today, almost 3 years later Im wearing a plaid flannel. It’s cozy in the cold rain damn it! Sigh, I have become one of them.

The inevitable is coming back around. Portland rain… for many many months. This year, year three in PDX, I am feeling almost excited about it though. Looking forward to being indoors and reading. But I also wanted to make an ongoing list of fun indoor adventures to go on this winter.
Indoor Blacklight Haunted Pirate Mini Golf!!!!
Ive known about this place for a while, but am waiting for the just right, ho-hum rainy saturday to go to it. ” This place promises animated skeletons, props, and “adventure sounds.” HELL YES.
Waterslides coming out of an AIRPLANE. Nuff said. (note, this is also a part of an aviation museum!!!!)
Jump Sky High Sports.
If the gym isn’t doin it for you, and you want to spend an hour or two bouncing all over the place, check this place out. Yes, adults can bounce too!!!!!

The shock and almost appaul and people’s kindess here in Portland continues. Late Saturday night I was walking home from an outdoor movie, and I walked past a front yard that looked like it had ghosts hanging in the trees, and some other creepy stuff. Of course I wanted to look closer.
I then realized this house had set up a yard sale the NIGHT BEFORE their sale, and were SO trusting of this town and neighborhood that having clothes out, and tables just covered in table cloths would keep vandals away. And you know what? IT DID!!!! this town! So crazy.
I still wish the clothes hanging had been ghosts.

Waning summer Saturdays in Pdx. Perhaps you hiked through the forest, or maybe you watched the Soapbox cars shoot down Tabor. You’ve earned yourself a night out of this world. Travel to PLANET OF THE DINOSAURS. The 1977 film is playing outdoors this saturday night!
31st and SE Stephens
From IMDB.”A space-ship gets lost and is forced to make an emergency landing on an unknown planet. The planet looks much like Earth, only with no trace of civilization. Soon the crew discovers that there are dinosaurs on the planet, and blood-thirsty buggers at that. The crew hopes to be found and rescued, but they have to struggle to survive until then.”

Will SOMEONE please start a hip hop radio station here in pdx!? I know maybe the request even for a proper FM band radio station in the year 2013 is a weird thing but Im just putting it out there.

I made a google map of many a pdx place I love. From art galleries, to shops, to places to eat and maybe a hike or two with no descriptions.
Want more info? Google it man….

As a lover of the outdoors, I have learned living in PDX is all about how you manage your time with the weather you are given. For me, that means exploding with energy once summer comes upon us… and going nearly nonstop until it’s gone in October…
Anyway, the sense of camaraderie and kindess around adventuring in nature here is STRONG. You want to go on a hike in the area? Check out www.portlandhikersfieldguide.org for DETAILED extremely helpful trail ideas.
