Portland’s PMLR Project, Where I’m Moving (One of These Days)…

First point of context. The PMLR stands for the Portland-Milawukie Light Rail Project. The name is somewhat misleading, because it is dramatically more than merely a simple little light rail project. I’ll add more context to what exactly it is over the blog entries following this one.

A Cascading Seat Post Collision and The Green Line

I sat pondering as I waited for departure, how I’ve ridden the Green Line more in the last 2 months than I have in the last 5 years. Mainly because I can get on at 5th and Madison, closer to where I call home these days, and get out to Hollywood District that anything to do with the Clackamas connection the Green Line was built for.

Today Marks a Very Decisive Day For Me…

I’ve decided to pursue very specific actions in reflection of the current actions of certain people in the United States. At the same time to prepare myself to make the final decision for myself in the coming few years.

A simple declaration with far reaching implication for myself and for Transit Sleuth. I will maintain updates here on the site. Until then, time to get working on preparing for…
