We broke our journey to Portland at Grant's Pass, Oregon. We were only supposed to stay one night but we met these people:
We invented a drink ("Ride the Lightening": half Guinness half Longhammer IPA).
We got taken where the local barstaff go when their shifts are over. There were shots, there was a lock in, there was a rendition of "Mind Games" (me) and a press up competition (Kate). We were invited to sign the wall.
The next day we chose not to drive to Portland but instead to stay and get a deeper understanding of what makes Grant's Pass tick (me) and lie in bed begging to die (Kate).
