Portland, Oregon

A great day for flying, we retraced part of yesterday's journey flying north from San Francisco into Oregon. Hearty, rugged and beautiful terrain with breathtaking views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Jefferson, Crater Lake and more.

Portland has always been one of my favourite cities but sadly we are not staying tonight, only in for a few hours to play the Arlene Schnitzer Theatre and fly out to Vancouver. The venue was sold out and the audience was brilliant, warm, welcoming, loud and appreciative. MK and Co. played an exemplary show tonight if I must say so myself. This band has hit an amazing stride even though we're dog tired. Matt reminded me after the show that we only have two left. And so it's on to Vancouver to the last hotel of the tour and our final gigs.

So long,
