Downtown Portland is a compromise location, about equally distant for both of us. It saves driving the winding roads over the hills, but I really don't like downtown. There are two reasons for this. One, driving in downtown is like driving in a parking lot. You can't go more than about 10 MPH and the streets are cluttered with pedestrians and cyclists. The other is the large number of bums you see everywhere. Most of them behave themselves, but there is always one who is making a scene, hollering or accosting people. Even the well behaved ones are a little scary. You just have to put on a brave face and have faith in the law of averages that says that scary looking guy isn't a psychopathic killer. And I'm not going to even mention the $10 it costs me for parking every time I go there.
