Where's home? As of right now, it's Portland, Oregon. The concept of "home" has always been somewhat ethereal to me, so I don't know if I will ever be able to attach it to any particular place.

What was/is your last/current trip? I drove across the USA last summer, concentrating mostly in the southwest. Inspired by the novel Blue Highways, by William Least Heat-Moon, I made it a point to stay off interstates as much as possible, traveling instead on more scenic two lane roads. I ended up taking a break in San Diego for a couple weeks before heading up Highway 1, finishing in Seattle. This was actually my first time driving across my own country, so I got a real flavor of the vast landscapes and beauty that surround the open road
