Hillsboro, Oregon Population 87,000

87,000 population is to big of a town for us. That's it. We don't go to cities. But here we are.

There is an airport across the street, I have never seen so many helicopters in my life there must be a helicopter school over there. We have been remodeling the RV. Mark is a good all round can fix it and do guy, I just kind of watch and hand him stuff.

We were surrounded today by pear orchards. Mt Hood could be seen in the distance about 25 miles, but the top is snow white it is hard to see. Mt Hood is there, you half to double click to see it. The Columbia River is loaded with wind surfers, if I was 30 years younger I would try it.

This is out in the middle of nowhere. A little town with a small General Store and a fairgrounds.

There is a river that people come from everywhere to raft the rapids (water is cold). You can see Mt Hood from here with plenty of snow on the top.
The Indians have built these platforms over the rapids and then they have these huge long nets that they drop down in the rapids. Look how clear the water is!
