Fuck Wyoming - The Preview

So, I'm finally in Portland. It was a very, very rough trip with many difficulties (though not also without some highlights), and I'm two days late getting here, but I'm here, I'm safe, the car is still more or less intact, my stuff is still intact, and I think now I pretty much have to make a go of this because I don't think I can get back to Memphis the way I came.

But it'll be a few days yet before I can sit down and tell you the whole story. It's a long story to tell and it'll take a while to write, so you'll just have to be patient. But I'm here. It's exactly what I was hoping for, and exactly what I thought it would be except strangely not at all like I expected. But I'm ready to fall in love with Portland.

I'll write more soon, I promise.

PS: For the sake of following up: Buddy from work, whom I wrote about here, died on Monday. So that was about seven or eight weeks from diagnosis to death. Poor Buddy... and poor Buddy's family.
