Any interest in taking the Amtrak Cascades, carpooling and/or shared accommodations in Portland?
I was hoping to keep costs down and either carpooling down to Portland or taking the train. Currently taking the amtrak Cascade down on Saturday morning is $28 and the Starlight Coast on Sunday afternoon back to Seattle is $28. Might be an adventure to take the train down with a group.
I'm also interested in sharing a hotel room or crashing on a couch in Portland for Saturday night as I am not going to be able to stay up until the wee hours of the morning partying.
Anyone else interested? Suggestions?
But I'm certainly willing to take a passenger along and back, preferably one I've at least met. So far, I haven't met any Mefites with open sores, tobacco chewers, severe dental problems/halitosis, crack smokers, IV drug users, or people who want to "borrow" money. Those characteristics are what were called "turn-offs" when I was growing up, now I believe they are called "deal breakers"...
Sorry, you can't smoke in my vehicle. Crack, pot, tobacco, whatever. No. Mad mastication with gum, perfectly acceptable, as that's my chronic oral vice.
