Vancouver to Portland – By public transit alone

Why do things just seem more adventuresome out West? Maybe it has something to do with the people I know there. My UBC friends Mike Kushnir and Aaron Palm, and Mathieu from Quebec, are on a transit odyssey. The project: to travel from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Portland Oregon – by public transit alone. It’s possible, they insist – that all the local transit systems somehow miraculously link together. Today they are in Seattle, looking for a place to stay. Last night, they were in Bellingham – a town whose wonders Mike, I, and other excellent friends from UBC discovered last summer.

You can follow their voyage on twitter, if you have it. I’ve been following using a web site they are updating in real time: Why do things just seem more adventuresome out West?
