I think it is about time for another installment of Alaska Adventures.
You can find the first post here about Can-opener Man.
We are just coming up from Roseburg Oregon,
where we had stayed with some friends of Cheryl's that she had worked on a winery with up there.
We were heading up to Portland, and realized that we didn't really have anywhere to stay.
It had occured to us earlier in the trip that we should try Couch Surfing.
We tried to do it in San Francisco, but it was too short notice.
But, we found two guys named Mike and Derrick to stay with in Portland.
These guys had a pretty nice apartment that they were kind to open up to us.
There was another girl that had stayed with them that week and she was on her way out.
She had an interesting story. She was from Switzerland and went to Portland to build a bicycle.
We explored all of the city.
Making sure to hit up Voodoo Donuts,
getting caught in the rain,
eating some delicious food from food trucks,
and taking a four person bike around the city.

After our bike ride,
Mike called us and said he was making some Sangria and was going to go drink it in the park.
He invited us along, and of course we accepted.
These guys were some of the nicest people we met on the trip.
They both were into traveling and playing practical jokes on their friends.
Mike had just gotten back from a trip to Argentina.
We were sad to leave them the next day.
But we got a text from Mike saying that we had forgotten something.
He said we forgot to take him with us to Alaska!
Fortunately, this wasn't the last time we got to see them.
Luckily for us, these guys were normal.
Many of the people we met on the trip were not.
Look forward to funny stories about those people!
