I am ashamed to say that I have not been to Mt. Hood yet. I am scared of the cost of a snowboard, and lift tickets, also we do not have chains in the Civic yet. I have heard it is cheap to tube so we might try that, but I really want to snowboard.. What makes Bachelor so sweet Brooke? I also am sad to say we have not gone to hot springs yet.. We are still young to Portland and have lots to discover.
