HarleyBob - I lived in Portland area for over 50 years. You can blame all that traffic on Californians!!! The worse are the bicycle riders...and they wonder why so many get run over? That's why I now live in Michigan. Believe you me, if there is a wreck on I-94 here in Michigan, it gets pushed off the road right now and traffic continues. None of that bull $&^% investagating nonsense for 2 hours for a fender bender. I don't miss the west coast traffic one bit.

email me about a place to stay in Portland, I will send you mine and hers phone number. My sisters has a B&B and is reasonable. It will all depend on the dates, etc. Hope we can help you. Rich
