I'm just mad

by kringenwally »

Email to Support@FrommerMedia.com and I think Pauline or her team might move the whole thing over. She probably wouldn't do it without your consent, but if it's you who does the asking...

As you say, in the past.  I don't know if we're there yet.  You could just post a link to this one over in "Oregon".

I noticed in the past that Frommer would move posts over to the appropriate board. I do have the info I need, but I think there's some good stuff here.

I'd just start over again in "Oregon" requesting information.  You could, if you're up to the task, copy some of the best answers here over to the new thread.  Or maybe you've got what you want already in which case you needn't bother.  I think I've already gotten enough for now.  If I run into trouble later I may ask again there.

It definitely should be moved to Oregon but is Saymoi's to move.

How do I do that?

This summer is the first time I'm trying to plan a vacation to parts unknown to me and there is absolutely nothing in the forums that can help me. The fact that years of suggestions are all gone is so sad.

I'm going to Portland, OR. There's one post in Oregon about someone looking for microbreweries and no one is answering! Maybe Oregon was always a desert of information, I wouldn't know, I never planned a trip to Oregon before!!

Same thing with Seattle. One question and no answer.

Maybe Anthony Bourdain can enlighten me with On Demand shows.

(Grand Canyon: Don’t bother stopping it is just a big hole in the ground)

I once came across a description of Positano on a message board saying: "In essence, it's a big hill."

 

Don't know if Saymoi is still going or has already gone, but I have relatives in Oregon and have been to most of the state's tourist attractions that are not in Portland.  The only one that appealed to me was the wineries of the Umpqua Valley because the rural area has charm.  In my experience, the coastal areas can be remarkably windy when they are not remarkably foggy.

I have spent time in Portland, but not in its tourists attractions.  In general, I don't do well in places that are not sunny unless they are filled with Belgian chocolates, Belgian waffles, Belgian moules, Belgian beer, and Belgian genever. I sort of hate drizzle, and during all my trips to Portland, it has been drizzly. It has generally been sunnier further south and east.  

I have been frightened by the size of baked goods and pastries in Oregon. Once you get beyond Portland, it is hard to find good food, although there is good fruit and cheese.

Wasn't there a poster named engred who lived in Oregon? Has she never returned post the google debacle?

Maybe we should petition the NSA to restore the Frommer's threads! enlightened

The Oregon Coast has so much to offer, just head to hwy 101 and go, there are so many viewpoints and places to view seals and sea lions, whales and more. Check out http://www.oregoncoastal.com for some beautiful photos and idea on hotels and motels, there are widgets and webcams and live video pages. The central coast is a good place to start.

I have been off Frommers' forum boards for about a year and am so excited to see familar names, especially from Italy trip planning days.  I am now thinking about a trip to Oregon.  I went for a week in Oct, mostly to visit friends, flying into Portland and renting a car and driving to Grants Pass, stopping in Eugene on the way down and in Salem on the way back.  There was so much I would have liked to see but I mostly saw I-5 so now I'm thinking of going back.  My initial idea was to rent an apt for a month but I really don't know where I want to be.  Now a friend might go one way with me and my original intent to hit a lot of antique stores is changing somewhat.  (I never had a strong interest in antiques but after visiting my friends in Grants Pass I got the bug).  Today I concentrated on looking at places along the coast.  I don't mind drizzle for part of the time and I'm thinking end of April, beginning of May.  I would be driving from central California.  My friend would be going to Portland to visit family and friends and not particularly staying with me on the coast (or maybe for part of the time she would).  Now I'm thinking of renting an apt for 5 days on the coast and maybe a similar amount of time somewhere totally different, then filling in with 1 or 2 night stays inbetween and on my way back to California for a total of about 3 weeks.

When I was there in Oct I really wanted to spend my last night along the Columbia Gorge but it was raining a lot and I decided not to for the few hours I would be there, so I am thinking of fitting that into this trip.  After getting to Oregon I prefer not to drive more then 2-3 hrs a day and I am at the stage of life where I like lots of leisure; no hurrying here and there.  Any suggestions of places you enjoyed would be appreciated and any information on antiquing would be good too, but not the fancy, high priced antique stores.

Mushroom, Winegeek and Dr. Fumblefingers - so nice to see your names again.
