J is back in Texas now and with August upon us we can choose the dates. I like August 30 through September 11. I think it is a good statement to fly on that infamous date.
I’m thinking in and out of Portland as the trip north will be slow and include ferries but the ride south will be more of a ‘just get there damn it’ kind of speed. Returning to Portland would also allow us to go south of Portland for a day or two as well. Perhaps a little Shakespeare in Ashland is in order.
