  • Fugitives & Refugees


According to Katherine Dunn (GEEK LOVE), Portland is the home of America's 'fugitives and refugees.' Get to know these folks, the 'most cracked of the crackpots,' as Palahniuk calls them, and come along with him on an adventure through the parts of Portland you might not otherwise believe actually exist. No other travel guide will give you this kind of access to 'a little history, a little legend, and a lot of friendly, sincere, fascinating people who maybe should've kept their mouths shut.' Here are strange personal museums, weird annual events, and ghost stories. Tour the tunnels under downtown Portland. Visit swingersí sex clubs, gay and straight. See Frances Gabeís famous 1940s Self-Cleaning House. Look into strange local customs like the I-Tit-a-Rod Race and the Santa Rampage. Learn how to talk like a local in a quick vocabulary lesson. Get to know, I mean really get to know, the animals at the Portland zoo. Oh, the list goes on and on.
