          Tryt,

           

          Thanks!

           

          I am going to try to do something of interest each week, as I travel.  It forces me to get out and enjoy the wonderful places we all can appreciate.  It does not have to be only "Exotic", but real places with real people.

                my wife was raised in Washington, Mo.  Went to school at St Francis Borgia.  Lived in a house built in the 1800's on Main Street.  what a small world, right?  We were married at that parish church......

                  Tell your wife, I will have some photo's for her next week that will bring back memories.

                   

                  Will be dining at The American Bounty, not far from the Amtrak station and visiting other historical spots.  Meeting at the Sleep in, but will be commuting from the FF in Fenton, Mo.

                We live close to where Lewis and Clark ended their trail and have visited many of their historial landmarks along with the end of the Trail Monument at Seaside, OR.

                  tryt,

                   

                  I have always wanted to make it to the final fort, but never had time while in Portland.  Enjoyed the Marriott's there, and also had some great meals at The Heathman Hotel (Is my memory correct?). 

                   

                  Wonderful, scenic, and historical area!

                   

                  Thanks for sharing this.

            Good idea--the people we meet and their stories, big and small, are always interesting

      My three years in the Infantry never resulted in more than an occasional paper cut, for which I am grateful.  I mourn the loss of those who are no longer with us.   My leaving was with no regret but with a pride that I have never forgotten. Now I mjet fol;ks my age who proudly tell me of shenanigans to stay out of the military,partly out of guilt I hope but sometimes to brag about connections their parents had. Ironically they are proud of today's service members.  I feel sorry for these men whose cowardice was more important than their willingness to serve.

        SS,

         

        I was 11 Bang Bang, at Ft. Polk, when they were shipping men to VN.  I was lucky, I did not have to go, but I would have.  Agree with your last sentence.  We really have some great "Protectors" today!

          Irony is that these folks need to nexplain what they did and I already figured it out long ago.

        you are a lot kinder and tactful than I would ever be about this issue.

          I cannot begin to imagine the sense of pride that serving our great country bestows upon those individuals that had both the opportunity means to do so.  I will be forever grateful for all of you that did so.
