Re: Portland cert

Hey Courtney!

augh! I went and booked a hotel right after posting those links for you. I booked a room at the holiday inn (listed above), since it should be pretty close and had a hot tub (thinking i might need that after a long day at the cert!) Anyway, I would have been totally open to sharing a room, but I am still waiting on my boyfriend to decide if he's going to come down with me for the weekend.

Re: Portland cert

The Kennedy School (McMennamins) is great. Even if you don't stay there, they have great beer and its a really cool place (as most of their hotels are).

I haven't booked a hotel yet. If your bf decides not to come, let me know if you're up for sharing. I'll probably be in town longer than you since I don't leave until monday morning but anything we can share would be cool.

Re: Portland cert

Hey guys,

Don't have anything useful to contribute re: accomodations but I'm going to the Portland cert too. I live across the river outside Vancouver, WA. Anyway, very excited and look forward to meeting everybody.

will do courtney! I should know this weekend if he's planning on coming or not, most likely not. I'm taking the train down Friday afternoon and heading back up to Seattle Sunday night, so could probably share a room Friday and Saturday...I'll let you know for sure ASAP!

Rob, look forward to meeting you! Just was in Vancouver a few weeks ago. My boyfriends brother and his girlfriend live there.

Re: Portland cert

Looking forward to meeting you too Rob!

I still need to book my hotel, just been puting it off to find the best hotel location because I won't have a car. Would it be better to stay in town or near the airport?

So excited, only one week out!!

Re: Portland cert

hey courtney!

turns out the bf is going to come down that weekend. he wants to stay in the room an play guitar.

If all goes as planned I'll have a car and can give you ride to and from the cert, I'll be at the Holiday Inn or if you book some place close to that I can pick you up...

I can't believe it's one week away. I'm nervous yet excited.
