Lost Oregon is a combination of two blogs I did previously: Roadside Oregon and Stumptown Confidential.
Stumptown Confidential is history – my files were lost when the host flipped some switch. I’m saddened that all my work from 2004-2008 is gone for good. Thankfully I still have the photos and put them up on a Flickr account.
So, instead of Stumptown Confidential just dying I thought I’d keep the whole history thing going by combing both blogs. So, I’ve imported Oregon Roadside from Blogger to WordPress and will start from scratch. I’ll do the occasional re-post of some of the Stumptown Confidential content as well.
The goal of the site is the same as Stumptown Confidential’s – document the disappearing Portland and Oregon of the recent past – through postcards, photos and words. Due to my geographical location of Portland metro, the site might be more skewed toward the area though.
Various media mentions
The Guardian in the UK named Lost Oregon as one of the Best Blogs for Travelers.
Here’s a cool piece that Peter Carlin from The Oregonian wrote about my nerdiness.
My blog was named as part of the Willamette Week‘s Best Of issue in 2005.
