Embassy Suites

The car in the picture is a Toyota Camry (2007) with 2,500 miles on the odometer when I rented it from Hertz at Seatac Airport in Seattle.

The hotel below is Embassy Suites which is located at 7900 NE 82nd Avenue in Portland, Oregon.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel three days as we toured the areas around Portland (Hood River, Columbia River Gorge, Mount Hood, and Mt. St. Helens). When we vacation, we prefer to lodge in upscale property like Embassy Suites as we take in the sights, sounds, and feel of places we visit.

I realize many people own getaway property or travel in motorized homes. Ownership of a condo at the beach or a cabin in the mountains compels one to return to those sites often. I know there is capital appreciation opportunity associated with this type of investment. But, to me, it places restrictions and limits freedom to go different places and experience life where one has never been before.

When we vacation, we want to avoid making beds, cooking meals, cleaning floors, dusting furniture, mowing a lawn, and all the other work associated with a second home ownership. We do enough of that in our one and only residence.

We drove the Toyota a total of 1,134 miles during the nine days in the Northwest U. S and Victoria, B. C. The fuel economy of this new Camry averaged 29.8 miles per gallon while carrying from two to four adult passengers and luggage.

Have a good week!
