I made that trip myself this last summer. San Diego to Portland in 19 hours–straight through. No matter how hungry you get for Mexican food, do not stop for it before you get to Portland–it’s pretty country, but they don’t do authentic Mexican food.
Keep having fun!

Glad you are out of the airport strip area.
Enjoy the bucolic expanse of Oregon ahead of you!
Just Jamie saysApril 13, 2008 at 7:15 pm
Your driving-while-photographing skills are outstanding.
Now… eyes back on the road!
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysApril 13, 2008 at 7:41 pm
I LOVE the Roloffs.
Please, Bossy, keep driving.
And please, Male Roloffs, stay strong and do not heed calls from the temptress.
Phoebe saysApril 13, 2008 at 8:39 pm
The Roloffs live in Helvetia which is near Hillsboro – more on the Portland side of things than Eugene. I hope you enjoy my home state! The farm country is one of its best features in my opinion.
Amy saysApril 13, 2008 at 8:43 pm
I 2nd the no Mexican food – but I would personally avoid it in Portland, too. Have some Asian food here – that’s very well done! I hope you have a good time in my city!
kit saysApril 13, 2008 at 8:49 pm
Amy, don’t forget to specify what Asian food. The Chinese food is horrendous in Portland, the Thai food kicks ass.
And, there are some good little Mexican places. Like Porque No on Mississippi is delicious!
Where is Bossy staying in P-town?
Jen saysApril 13, 2008 at 9:17 pm
Your photos are great while driving, but “keep your eyes on the road missy!” (sorry i just channeled my mother!).
Wendy saysApril 13, 2008 at 9:31 pm
OOO, you’re getting closer to my little island! Come on over to Bainbridge if you have spare time. (I know, “spare time” HA)
The Domestic Goddess saysApril 13, 2008 at 9:57 pm
Say Hi to the Roloff’s for me.
No, I don’t know them. In my dreams, maybe.
Momo Fali saysApril 13, 2008 at 10:40 pm
Well, wherever they are, they’re certainly not worried about the height of that tunnel.
qt saysApril 13, 2008 at 11:46 pm
Portland is one of my fave cities. You’ll have a blast.
Foolery saysApril 14, 2008 at 12:18 am
If you must be out for a Sunday drive anywhere in the world, it probably should be in Oregon.
Any traffic tickets yet?
Rhi saysApril 14, 2008 at 12:42 am
OH DEAR! I wish I would have read this before I met you! I would have told you how much web traffic the Roloff’s generate for my organization’s website!!!
Loved meeting you!!! Tall girls unite1
What Happens Next saysApril 14, 2008 at 12:51 am
I saw the Roloffs in Hawaii…rockin the tourist attire.
Bossy will love Portland, but all I remember about the food there is the coffee shop/bakeries…mmmmmm
Philly saysApril 14, 2008 at 6:21 am
Roloff’s are slobs!
karrie saysApril 14, 2008 at 7:25 am
Nice capture through the window.
Some of my best roadtrip shots were actually taken through my windshield, while barreling down a highway.
LionAndMagicBoy saysApril 14, 2008 at 9:25 am
Obviously they are under the radar.
Dexter saysApril 14, 2008 at 9:45 am
Are you talking about Manny and Mitzie Roloff who used to own “Shlomos Deli” in Northeast Philly?
Dharmamama saysApril 14, 2008 at 9:49 am
Ooh, I love tunnels like that. We have several here in NC and I love to drive through them, honking my horn to hear the echo. The other drivers love it, too – at least, I guess that’s what that hand gesture means.
heart shaped hedges saysApril 14, 2008 at 10:19 am
Oh, that would have really been something if the Roloffs were your hosts for a day or two, now wouldnt it?
Maybe next year, TLC can do a little show on you…like, a Bossy reality show, like Paris and Nicole, kind of, but not really.
corrie saysApril 14, 2008 at 11:44 am
I was happy to see you in Oregon, Bossy !! Today in the newspaper was the story about the woman arrested for stalking….. John Cusack!!! Whew! That was close!
Andrea @ Sweet Life saysApril 14, 2008 at 12:00 pm
No WAY, no TLC Bossy reality show. Then we’d have to SHARE HER WITH THE WHOLE WORLD, people!
MamaMo saysApril 14, 2008 at 2:02 pm
You should TOTALLY make a detour to check out the Roloff farm – I know they’d love to meet you.
Jen M saysApril 14, 2008 at 5:40 pm
Woot! I went to University of Oregon! And Portland State! You are in my old stomping grounds!
Can I type with more exclamation points? No!
April saysApril 14, 2008 at 10:11 pm
W00t for portland! you betta getcha some voodoo doughtnuts!! you will LOVE them (2nd and Ankeny downtown, open late)
lildb saysApril 15, 2008 at 2:01 am
purty here, ain’t it?
nice to see you again, pretty lady. wish i could have had fewer incidents slow me down in getting to the restaurant just so i could witness the mass exodus of the Bossy event of the season… and, sigh.
but – !, blogher. so, 🙂
moe99 saysApril 15, 2008 at 2:00 pm
Bossy, Does this mean you will be in Seattle soon? If so, will there be gatherings? Can I be so bold as to invite myself?
April saysApril 15, 2008 at 8:49 pm
Hey did you notice that your comments are mixing people up? For instance: my comment was attributed to Jen M and she got mine! What’s up with that?
April saysApril 15, 2008 at 8:50 pm
(delete previous comment, obviously the names are BELOW the comments, not above—as the red line would lead you to believe! the whole internets is confusing.)
Amy saysApril 15, 2008 at 11:53 pm
The Roloff’s are one thing, but if you get near that Gosselin Gang on your way back, through PA, you may want to hide your uterus.
