In the back of a Les Schwab tire repair bay on 82nd Street, the beautiful "Boulevard of Roses," in Portland.

Don't know about anyone else, but Jim was going to go by on his way home from work. Original plan was to take public transportation, but I ended up with my car, so that's how I went by.


Benture: Frogman pointed out that today's hashpoint was right on my regular bicycle commute route! Even though it was quite cold and very windy, I stopped by on my ride home and got as close as I could (within 7 meters). Ironically, I had stopped at this corner one other time: when it was so hot outside that my bike tire exploded due to the internal air expansion because of the heat! No, Les Schwab does NOT repair bicycle tires.

Michael5000: I drive by this location two or three times a week, and was going to drive by it again today anyway. I didn't have my GPS gadget, but I stopped anyway to lurk around the tire store and take a selfie with the sign.

Jim: I programmed my GPS and went by on my way home, later in the evening. The 72 bus stop is actually right in front of the shop, and I found my "close enough" point at 28 feet or so in the back corner of the building, which was long since closed.
