Hi!
I'm traveling around the pacific northwest this summer and I'm starting out in Portland, my dream town :heart: I'm going at the end of July
As I am traveling alone, and for a month, I thought it'd be nice to make a contact or two out there and the only way I could think to do that would be this. If there's anyone I could talk to about places I have to see while I'm there or any advice I'd really appreciate it! I'm also hitting Washington (the rainforest area and maybe Seattle) and the either north to Canada or east to Wyoming and Montana.
I'd love to meet another Vegan that likes to hike or just to chat with while I'm there but I know that's probably weird for most people. :rolleyes:

Hey Tipsy!
I like all those things too! Mostly the pubs. We're the same age too, how convenient!
How long have you lived in Portland?

I'm leaving in about a week. Activities I plan on doing in the area are:
-hiking
-biking
-going to brew pubs
-going to lots of great vegan restaurant
-exploring the city on foot
-day trips to surrounding outdoor areas
-climbing
-jumping out of a plane

Anyone that wants to join me in any of these activities let me know!

Lol. I won't be in Portland :( (though I've always wanted to go), but I just thought this was a hilarious way of describing it. :D

Hey Portlanders,

I have a friend who is a brilliant songwriter/performer who is coming to Portland from July 26th to August 6th. She needs to find shows to play--at places like coffee shops, pubs, whatever. AND SHE'S A VEGAN, TOO!

Her solo band name is Birds Fled From Me, and here's her MySpace with some music.

http://www.myspace.com/birdsfledfromme

There's some good stuff up on there, but in my opinion doesn't do full justice to how great she is live. If you know of any place that might be able to offer her a space to play, please let me know. Something like the name of a good place would be nice, but it would be even better if there's a place that you personally frequent and know would like to have someone play.

Come on, she's good people. Let's help her out. Tipsy, I'm looking in your direction!

Hey,

I am from Germany and I stay in Portland since July the 10th.. I will be here till September 6th.
I would love it to meet other Vegans. I think it is great to know other people who are thinking in an similar way...
I would love to hike, make a bicycle tour, exploitation tours through the city... or be part of a demonstration, a flayer action ...
My English isn't as good as it should be so it could be that it stressful to listen to me :-/...
It would be great if someone would answer me...
