Thank you very much for posting the show catalog. It's nice looking at all the images people have posted, even better to read some background details. I like the shots of the various workshops and the short bios of the builders. Very nice. I could kick myself for not making it to this show when it was in San Jose two years in a row but family obligations took priority.
Portland OR is a great place to visit, you can land at the airport and take lightrail right to downtown in about a half hour or less.
