What happens when a bus full of bloggers drives into the Willamette River?


Well, we'll find out Thursday night with the Portland Duck Bus and its FREE holiday lights tour for bloggers. If you're reading this blog and you're in Portland, you probably already have an e mail from me inviting you to this crazy event I'm pulling together. I don't know, I got a wild hair I guess, but I'm intrigued about this somewhat new cool thing to do in P-Town. It's an amphibomobile, meaning it can drive on land and on water. And here in Portland it drives right on into our superfund site, the Willamette River. And do you know what's on the river in the evenings this time of year? The parade of ships decorated with holiday lights. Cray-zay!

Supah props to the 41 of you representing 16 blogs who said yes and are coming. I can't believe we'll actually get to meet. Does a busload full of bloggers talk to each other or just send IMs? I guess we'll find out.

Oh, look who's first...

Let's see, 41 people representing 16 blogs, and because RSG has so many children, I think most of those other people are my people. I guess it's a good thing I'm done procreating.

Can't wait for the fun in the, river.

Can't wait! I'm bringing two generations of bloggers myself...

I'm bringing a non blogger and some alcohol. Rather than IMs, I think everyone will just leave comments. Are we still doing it if it rains?

LeLo in NoPo said...

Word is, it's still on no matter what the weather. But I'll send out an e mail with answers to those lingering questions and others soon.

Rigo's bringing alcohol, YES!

And I'm gonna have to miss it! My oldest has a choir concert that night. Have a great time, all. I wanna hear all about it so there'd better be pictures and tales.

I'm going to leave comments, too, but anonymously.

Do you still have room for 2?

SoozieQ said...

I am so jealous. I wish I could come...but it's a long drive from CA or OR :-(

Take lots of pictures, mmmkay?

SoozieQ said...

I meant TO OR, not "or OR". Duh.

Blue Hole, you need to e mail me, sassygardener at gmail and i can get you the info. I've been trying to invite you but;
1. you don't list an e mail address on your site;
2. commenting over at your place isn't working or something.

So everyone keep your fingers crossed that tonight's predicted windstorm for the valley hits AFTER 8pm. Word is it's on no matter what the weather is...

KGW just said wind storm beginning at 4:00. I hope I don't lose any of my children overboard!

superinkygirl said...

Don't forget your motion sickness pills people!!

This should be sweet.....I hope we don't have to abandon ship.

I can't wait to meet some of my regular reads!!

I love the potential irony of the situation. An aquabusload of bloggers on the Willamette River in a bad storm. The aquabus takes on water and sinks. The bloggers drown. It's a great story to blog about, but sadly - we wont be able to. How funny is that?

Yes, I can take any situation and turn it into a potential crisis.

I'm sure we will all have a great time and I'm looking forward to it!
