tentative travel plans to oregon

so i'm going to be teaching in eastern oregon on Aug 2-3, returning to nola on August 4th.

it turns out that getting a round-trip ticket from July 31-Aug 4th is only marginally cheaper than getting a one-way ticket to PDX on July 30 and then a one-way ticket from PSC to MSY on August 4th. I've worked out the detail of getting form PDX to PSC thanks to a very generous tyler and his generous girlfriend's car. there are a couple of other small details to work out, but there's a very good chance that i'm going with this plan, which means that i'll be in PDX on friday evening, all day saturday, and sunday for a part of the day until i get driven to hermiston.

so yeah, anyone who wants to hang, we should do it. maybe we'll do an old school DDR gathering on saturday night for all of my didder friends, or maybe a meet up at ground kontrol so i can get my old school pinball fix in since there's hardly any pinball in new orleans, or at the very least i'll plan on hitting up some sort of dinner and drinks thing, maybe mcminniman's or some other portland recommendation. In any case, once i can confirm what the actual plan is, i'll post up the details.

wooooaaahh what timing. Unfortunately I fly out of the country (as in, leaving for a few years to work abroad) on July 31!! So if I could do anything, something brief the evening of the 30th? Hopefully I won't be super busy packing the last of my worldly possessions... or maybe I could not sleep the night before the flight so that I could sleep on the plane.... hmmmmmm

chances are i'm not getting in until pretty late on the 30th. not midnight late, but maybe 10:30 late. if the timing works out, it would be great to see you, but don't stress it if it doesn't work for you. guess i'll just have to visit japan or something. :D

yeaaah, or maybe I'll come visit New Orleans :D I am in North Portland right now too, which is pretty accessible to downtown and kind of on the way to Big Al's :p
