I am an Oregonian. My family came to the Oregon Territory in 1851 settling in the Willamette Valley and befriending the Calipooya tribe.
Times were tough then but my ancestors hosted annual fairs at the base of Savage Butte bringing the community together to share their wares, stories, and friendship.
Americus Savage kept a journal. Excerpts from it are available online. The entire journal and many of his other writings are somewhere in Maine. Reading those is on my short bucket list.
My journal, this journal, resumes the Savage journal tradition. It will include entries on my trade (software quality), my politics (liberal), and reflections on this great state of Oregon. Enjoy and prosper.
