I lived in Oregon for a number of years and did a lot of growing up there. Elementary, middle and high school from 4th grade on in Salem. Undergrad at U of O. Portland after graduation.
Getting back for a visit has always been tough. Money and time usually being the biggest factors.
When I got a save-the-date card to my cousin's wedding in Seattle earlier this year, the wheels started turning; why not make this a Pacific Northwest tour and try to catch up with as many old friends as possible?
The whole thing was a bit of a whirlwind, and there were times when I should've picked up the camera when I didn't (sorry high school friends I hadn't seen in 15 years, I was having too much fun listening to all the stories). But overall we had a great time.
