I do not drive, but I can meet you at the airport and guide you on the Max (our local light rail) which runs from the airport straight into downtown.

What time are you coming in? Lots of Geeklies are flying in tomorrow. Most of us are going to use the public transport.

Were on our way now we land at about 1130 if i remember. Its 6 and we take off at 9. I just need a way to figure out where the Geeklies are. If anyone sees me im in a blue flannel and a red TØP beanie

Hmm. That's a bit earlier than the people I know of. Gwynn comes in at 12:30 and will wait for me, then we'll wait for another one or two coming at 2. Hopefully people are wearing shirts that help. I've got my green GC15 shirt on, though others might have purple Nika shirts or various DnD.

If I wasn't stuck at work today I would be more then happy to give people a lift. There is a starbucks near the terminal exit that would be a good meet up spot though. Also a number of bars in the airport if you feel like you need a mimosa or bloody marry to start the day haha. The light rail is super easy, you just have to know what stop to get off at. They have a website (www.trimet.org) where you can put in your start location and end location and it will give you the best public transit option on how to get there. You could also ask someone Portland is full of friendly people who are more then happy to direct people new to the city. Hope this helps and good luck haha.

Starbucks does seem like a good idea. Well land and see how everything goes.
