Flying solo in PDX this weekend, your tips and suggestions?

My wife is at a conference outside of Portland in Clackamas and I came along. I'd like to have suggestions on what to do all day tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday on my own, as I explore the city while she is busy.

Is it normal for airbnb pricing to go up after I book?

I used airbnb for the first time in February. Stayed in a guy's house in Joshua Tree. It was awesome. The next two times the rate jumped after I booked a place. My questions are: is this normal, and is there any way to avoid it? Sorry if my questions are beginnery, I'm still new to airbnbing. My specific details are below. [more inside]

Greyhound from Corvallis to Salem Oregon

I need to travel from Corvallis to Salem. I've found a route that fits my needs, but I can't be late (I need to be there for a wedding). I've never used Greyhound: is there any likelihood that I might be two hours late?

Campsites for the August eclipse in Oregon, or other options?

We're getting a late start on our planning for seeing the eclipse out of Portland (I know, I know). We have two young kids and would like to camp somewhere along the route, but we can't find anywhere within a 5-hour drive that has campsites that aren't in the hundreds of dollars, if there are any at all. What can we do? [more inside]

Just HOW crazy is the eclipse viewing going to be?

I was planning to drive with my mother down to see the eclipse in Oregon, but the discussion here has got me rather intimidated. If we stay in Pendleton and try to drive south into the totality area on the morning of the eclipse, are we just going to be stuck in zombie-apocalypse level traffic jam? [more inside]

Road Tripping: Baby Style. Northern California/Oregon Edition

We're going to be driving from the SF East Bay to the Oregon Coast (around Lincoln City). In our Younger Days we would do this in one go, but there's a baby in tow now and I don't think she'd appreciate an 10+ hour day in the car. The question is: should we do it in 2 days or 3 days, and where are fun or interesting or pretty or whatever places we stop along the way? [more inside]

Quirky cool things in Portland, OR in the next couple of weeks?

I know some folks who are going to honeymoon in Portland, OR soon. They're arriving in the middle of next week and will be there for 10-14 days. I'd love to be able to point them to cool weird quirky things going on that they may not easily find in tourist magazines etc. They're about 40, not huge on hiking and I'm not sure what styles of music they like. They're already planning to get head-sized donuts at Voodoo and I've rhapsodised at them about Powells. Hope me, hive mind!
