Heading to Troutdale for concert at Edgefield. Will be staying at Best Western on NE Halsey Street.

Portland has TriMet which is pretty good public transport system. They have good website.

Not sure where you want public transport Airport to Best Western on Halsey, or BW to Edgefield. I am not sure where BW is on Halsey.

6/10 of a mile but if you prefer a cab, it's blue "xxx' something and it's about $5.

Can't get much better than that..

Have fun,

Use Tri-Met's 'Trip Panner' feature. Enter in the addresses 'PDX' to '23525 NE Halsey St': http://trimet.org/go/cgi-bin/plantrip.cgi

The route seems very simple; ride Red Line MAX from Airport to Parkrose/Sumner TC stop, transfer to #12 bus (to Gresham TC). Bus stop is almost right in front of Best Western, according to Google Maps. Cost = $2.10. Time = 45-50 min, depending on transfer wait.

And, as was mentioned above, the distance from BW to Edgefield is under a mile, an easy 10-15 minute walk.

Hope that helps,

Brian

PS Which concert are you going to? Wife and I are seeing Emmylou Harris/Steve Martin show and Florence + the Machine show, both in late July. Cheers!

No, I am embarrassed and afraid that I may have typed something off.

Yikes.

I had spinal surgery and I am not sure what I was trying to say. At least this time you have a very good reason to jump me. This is bad. So sorry.

Nobody's "jumping" you MrsO . . . I think we were just having a bit of a giggle :-)

Back surgery is not fun (been there, done that, got the scar) but the good part is that you will get better. Take care and don't worry about silly posts!
