8.12am, Thursday 20th September, Burnside Ave, Portland, Oregon, USA
Morning, folks, just picked up the rental vehicle that we’ll be using for the next couple of days – we’re heading a few hours south of Portland to Eugene – in this little buzz bomb! Bet you didn’t know jelly beans came in grey! Hang on, we’re in Portland , Oregon! Wasn’t that one of the towns in that recently famous blockbuster book “50 Shades of Grey”. I think there’s actually a ‘meet the author’ session for E.L. James at local legend Powells Books this weekend. OK! I’m having my own ‘Shades of Grey’ couple of days with this beaut little car! Wish me luck!
