A Quick Note from The Good Doctor: A Return from Portland and a Peak Ahead (w/PICS)

Doc here, a man who some say has an un-natural attraction to Voodoo Donuts, with a Quick Note from my desk, deep in the Valley near the small women's liberals arts college.

The image at the left was taken about two minutes before I passed out on my flight back from Portland to Chicago's Midway Aerodrome. That's Mt. St. Helens on the left, and Mt. Adams on the right. And lucky for The Good Doctor, they were not the only lovely peaks I saw this past weekend in what the locals call Rip City.

If you have never been to Portland, you are missing something big. It's a city like no other I have traveled to in my 24 years on the road. It's the perfect setting for many things: Best food trucks I have ever sampled. Best specialty shops. Best Goddamn donuts on God's green earth. And best of all... Two top shelf adult theaters.
