Heather had not given me a single clue as to what she was getting me for Xmas, but then this morning I received an email from a friend telling me that another friend had spotted a Dave Knows Portland ad on the back of a TriMet bus. I knew only one person could be responsible for this!
Thanks Heather (aka Mile73.com)!!!
Heather tells me there are ten buses on the road with this ad, and a MAX train! She also passed along the graphic she designed and supplied to the folks who do TriMet’s ads:
And here’s their final revision:
I guess this means I have to get something nice for Heather!
You’re welcome! You’re the best boyfriend ever!
funny. i saw that this morning and thought to myself (after reading your blog for ages), he’s getting really big! congrats, and what a sweet lady!
Best. Gift. Ever. You’re a lucky guy, Dave!
Heather – that’s funny because you’re the best girlfriend ever!
teresa – Heather is a sweet heart, and now we get to see if bus advertising works! 😉
devlyn, divebarwife – Agreed!
What a great gift! So cool 🙂
What a cool idea. How on earth are you ever going to match this for “best gift ever”? Man, you are SOOOOO screwed! From now on, you’ll have to do whatever she wants, for the rest of your life because once she give you that “dude-I-bought-bus-ads-for-you” look you’ll be a goner. Merry Christmas!

That’s awesome Dave!
I saw one this weekend and was like “Woah, now other people are gonna find out about such a cool site.”
Cool! I saw one today on a #4 bus — actually two of them on two #4 buses, but then, they do look a lot alike those #4’s. Well played!
Those ad’s are totally the best gift ever. I didn’t know about your site till I saw the ad on a bus a couple days ago. Sweet site. 🙂
Hey Dave. Not sure if you saw it or someone told you about it. But, the other night during the Blazers game they were showing the typical scenes of Portland when coming back from a time out and they were following a bus across one of the bridges and your ad was on the back of the bus! Must have been on for a good 5-10 seconds. Pretty cool.
A link to this popped up on FB today. Weird.
