E355 – Aqua Camps, Steven Commutes



Steven Butler is a long-time friend and coworker of Brock and Aaron who has spent over a year commuting in to Portland from Vancouver, Washington.  We ask him what’s to know about crossing the bridge under one’s own power.

Superfan Aqua is in to talk about her first solo bike camping trip at L.L. “Stubb” Stewart State Park.  It was awesome, but it was wet!

Aaron almost missed the first Sunday Parkways, and Brock went bike camping.

  1. E355 has justified my feelings of irritation! Thank you Steven Butler for voicing your opinion about riders who cross the bridge going south on the north bound side. My office is literally on, what I consider to be, the exit to the north bound side of the I-5 bridge. I constantly watch commuters going the wrong way. My favorite is the recycling crew that goes the wrong way with trash bags loaded to bursting. Someday, before my boss arrives at work, I will paint official looking one way only signs on the ground. There is a perk to the location and that is the constant parade of bikes. It increases my bike envy but also feeds my love for the ride.
