    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Zoobomb would be fun and is definitely a Portland thing to do. I'll be out of town, otherwise I'd offer to show you around. Looks like you're going to miss the Massacre by two days, and I don't know if any other events around then. I'm sure theres someone on the forums who'll show you cool places to bike.

    Zoo bomb is where a bunch of folks meet up at the top of burnside (I think) and just mob down at like, 1 in the morning to the zoo, usually on a bunch of little kids bikes. Then you hop on the transit, ride to the top and repeat. I dont know any specifics on it, though I'm sure some PDX cats on here can fill you in/correct any errors I made in my explanation. I havent ever done it, though saw it in action last time i was in portland for an M. Ward show. Looks really really fun and I think there are bikes to be borrowed if you dont have a little kid bike.

    Looks amazingly enjoyable. Don't know if I will have access to a kids bicycle while i'm down there but if I do I'm sure I will try it. Thanks.
