In fact, I’m about to begin a two-week trip to Portland, Ore., where I’ll be reporting for a series of upcoming stories. I’m hoping to make as much use of Twitter as possible, both to get recommendations for frugal fun and to report back instantly about my experience. So sign up for Twitter, follow @frugaltraveler and let me know what I should (or shouldn’t) be doing in and around Portland — and beyond.
Though maybe this is an (unfunny) April Fools Day joke; the Times has written so many Portland articles already I can’t imagine there are any topics left to cover . . . except of course the Unicorn burial ground (he should have visited earlier this month).
