Cascadia Trip Inventory: Accumulation from our Trip to Portland and Seattle

Submitted by Richard on Wed, 2009-03-04 14:44

Inspired by the inventories Liz posts on Flickr, Karen and I decided to take a photo of everything we accumulated on our trip to Portland and then Seattle. We set physical we took from America on the floor and then stood on a chair to take the photo with our DSLR. Below is the photo plus a list of the items with some links, taken from the annotations Karen and I added to the Flickr photo.

Cascadia Trip Accumulation
  • Overland Equipment Auburn bag.
  • The Alexander Technique Manual by Richard Brennan
  • Two maps of Powell's City of Books in Portland.
  • Boost Your Brain Power Week by Week: 52 Techniques to Make You Smarter by Bill Lucas
  • U.S. stamps for mailing postcards.
  • Various TriMet maps, passes and info. From right to left: three maps, a comic in Spanish, and a bike rider's guide. The five passes are: one bus transfer, two weekly passes, and two "honored citizens" passes that I rescued from the trash.
  • Seattle Sound Transit guide.
  • Two free Portland bridges bookmarks. That beat paying $19 for the poster of the same bridges.
  • Inclusive City book flyer.
  • 4 Amtrak ticket stubs for the train trips we took from Portland to Seattle, then from Seattle to Vancouver.
  • Artist postcard from gallery in the Pearl District.
  • Pumpkin Butter with Port, from the "Made in Oregon" store.
  • Spiced hazelnuts with cinnamon and pepper. I talked to the man who makes them at the People's Co-op Farmer's Market. It was chilly. (The weather at the market, not the man!)
  • Dreaming Escape, a book of poems translated from Albanian.
  • Greeting cards from Positively Green
  • Seattle Art Museum tickets to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. We stumbled on it on our way to a concert, donated in the wrong box, plead our case, and got in as the result of the donation.
  • Our little big purchase: the Flip MinoHD, with a custom design that I commissioned from @idleglory (flickr: rocketcandy).
  • 2 rolls of film from the Fisheye camera, ISO 400 and ISO 200.
  • Notebooks and a Jane Austen address book, also from Powell's.
  • Apple Cider, obtained from the Farmer's Market.
  • Bridges of Portland fridge magnet.
  • Art gallery opening card from Moshi Moshi.
  • The poster for Duncan Sheik's 2009 winter tour for Whisper House and Spring Awakening. We attended his shows in Portland and Seattle.
  • Ticket stub from the Portland Duncan Sheik show.
  • Artist postcard from gallery in the Pearl District.
  • Skirt purchased from The Future Inc., which closed this past Saturday.
  • An "Oregon Wilderness" postcard, the outlier of the 8 we sent in total to our American and Canadian friends on this trip.
  • Apple Cinnamon Tea from Pike Place Public Market in Seattle. The entire kitchen smells like this tea now.
