I'm in my early 60's; retired in January 2011 from 34-year career as environmental specialist for US Army. Traveling in September 2011 to visit family (Seattle, WA) and attend an event (Portland, OR). Need room in Portland (this would be my first time with Airbnb). Will have rental car. Enjoy reading, especially mysteries and science fiction or fantasies; TV; dance or music performances; but seldom attend movies. Eat lower-fat and low-salt; enjoy ethnic food, soup/salads/sandwiches. Vegetarian OK. "Need" coffee with milk/sugar, or tea without. Stay up late but quiet.
