I'm a retired criminal defense attorney from California living in clean, green, and serene rural Washington, 20 minutes north of Portland, Oregon. I read a lot and have a private library; I love opera and rock and roll. I'm very liberal in my politics, and the state has recently caught up with me! I'm single and my house is way too big for just me. I'd love to have you stay with me while you visit Portland, Seattle, or British Columbia. I'm renovating my house, and started with the guest bedroom and bathrooom, which are beautiful if I do say so myself. I need a new roof, so help me pay for it! You'd want to have a car available to travel in. I'll make you a nice breakfast in the morning before your day time adventure starts in Portland, or Mt. Hood, or (website hidden). Helens or to the Pacific Coast. I do have a dog and a cat, so if you have allergies or just dislike either, I'm not the best place for you to stay.
