But that discussion is for a completely different bbs; don't want to bore anyone with the "me-have-bike-me-good-person-me-demand-access!" thing. Even I get tired of it sometimes.
Come to Portland! Our transport system, TriMet, has a standing rule that bikes have PRIORITY, and foot-based traffic will GET OFF THE BUSSES/LIGHT RAIL TO MAKE ROOM FOR THEM!
Also, in reference to Jennnk's comments; Raheer knows what she means. She attends Western Oregon University, the most conservitive public university anywhere in the United States or Canada. (Also the reason Raheer is taking his secondary partner to BM04; she attends Warner Pacific College, an ultra-right wing Church of Christ school which will kick out any student who attends class with a hickey. [Raheer can only imagine what they would think of the nights of wild passion she, his fiance, and he have had...]).
Now, to Raheer's section of the post.
Raheer is 22 years of age, lives in Gresham, Oregon, about seven miles east of Downtown Portland, and (this will come as a shock to many of you who may or may not have thought they knew him), has never been to Burning Man. (But he will next year!)
Raheer also is heading to Vancouver, BC on the Eighth of October, and would like to hear from some fellow Burners about things/people to do/see/meet in and about the city. (Also, he really needs to know how well the public transportation system works in the city in question, as he is epileptic and cannot drive...).
