Today, I board a bus in San Francisco and ride (first south to Sacramento but then) North to Portalnd, Oregon. I'll say one night in a motel downtown and meet up with Cousin Sarah while she's attending some kind of conference.
On the 27th I'll take what is probably the shortest bus trip of my Assault and pay an extended visit on Matt Thompson (formerly of Mason Proper, formerly of Gargoyle, formerly of Some French Dairy Farm in France) in Seattle. I'm really looking forward to this, since I'd previously only spent a few hours in Seattle.
On the 30th (or so) I'll check my trusty duffel and ride a jet all the way back to DCA. That'll be it. That ends the Assault. Tonight is the final push up the west coast.
See you all soon.
