Friend is on bike tour, just got food poisoning. Needs place to stay in Portland, OR tonight. Hostels are full. He says he is not throwing up any more just has no energy. Anyone know any cheap hotels between downtown and north (he will be heading north as soon as he gets better).

I ran across a travelogue a while back of two young women going on a long bicycle tour in the Eastern U.S. in the 1930s or 1940s. I think they started from Pennsylvania or another nearby state and originally intended to go west, but ended up going south. On the return trip, I think they took a boat up the Mississippi or another major river. Does this ring a bell? [more inside]
