Remember the Green Faery?

I'll be handing out gold coins again this year for St. Patty's Day (I caught a leprechaun!!), but since it landed on a Thursday, I've gotta do it today. I'll be at the Saturday market this afternoon. Come get gold coins from me! (Sorry, they're plastic, not chocolate.. dun' want parents to think their kids are taking candy from stangers.) Everyone do a no-rain dance for me today to ensure that I can wear all of my costume!!

See you there!

Hey damnportlanders,

Are there any motels in a fairly decent area that charge by the week? My husband and I are moving up to Portland on April 1st and might need a few weeks in a motel until we can find an apartment. (We have first last and deposit but no verifiable income as of yet.) (Also thought of a roomshare but nobody wants to live with a married couple and a dog... and we think we need our own space anyway.)

Someone help us out? We think we want to rent somewhere around SE or SW, so someplace close-by there would be fantastic.

Alright, here's a question for all of you from/with knowledge of the midwest:

From late May (leaving the 19th or the 20th) to early June (need to be in Portland by the 5th), I am taking a cross-country road trip. I currently live in Baltimore, ending up in Portland (to stay! yay! I've missed my city so), and I need some advice as to cool places to stop along the way.

The route we're planning on taking (although this could be somewhat changed) is to go through Virginia and West Virginia and Kentucky/the southern tips of Ohio Indiana, and Illinois to meet up with Route 66 (or its modern day manifestation, anyway) somewhere around St. Louis. Then we go through Missouri, going off our route to visit the Laura Ignalls Wilder house and museum in Mansfield, MO. Then we continue through the tip of Kansas and down into Oklahoma, where we'll be stopping at the World's Largest McDonald's and a Route 66 Museum.

After Oklahoma or somewhere in New Mexico we're gonna head back North and probably go through Colorado, Utah, possibly Nevada, possibly Idaho, and finally to Oregon.

So. Does anyone have any other destination suggestions? We may just stop at whatever cool/funky thing we happen upon, but I'd love some more ideas of what to keep in mind.

Thanks in advance!
