Staying in Portland, Oregon for 3 months

Me and my girlfriend are taking a very long vacation this year, so we have found an apartment in Portland, OR to enjoy some good beer and food, as well as the surrounding area for hikes and bike rides. We will be staying in Portland from May 2nd -> August 1st. If anyone in the area needs some company in their garage (free of charge of course), I have done a nuts'n'bolts restoration on a 105 coupe, so I know my way around an old Alfa. Also, if anyone knows of any good Alfa related events, or any other good tips for a car enthusiast, let me know.

You should check out the website of the Oregon Alfa club: Home

I can't speak for them, but I am confident that they would welcome an Alfisti visiting from Norway at their summer events. Enjoy your visit!

"The monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month (except June, July and August) at 7:30 p.m. at Ernesto's Italian Restaurant, 8544 SW Apple Way, Portland 97225."

I will be in town for the one on May 18th, thank you for that great tip!

Welcome to Portland. Give me a call when you are settled in. Dennis 503 704 1800 and we will have a get together with our members. We did this for a fellow Alfisti from New Zealand last year, he came to town and wanted to meet us and we did a tour in our cars. There are a bunch of car/Alfa events going on in June and July. What part of town are you going to be in?

That sounds great! We have an apartment in the Hawthorne district. Looking forward to meeting you, we will be traveling around the country between May 2nd and 16th, but will be in Portland for the remainder of our stay.

Welcome to Portland!

We can also introduce you to some local Norwegians too!

Hawthorne district will be a fun area to hang out in. I echo Dennist above, that we'll have some activities for you to enjoy.
