the Phatman has landed.


After several weeks of travel, our rambling friend Phatman is finally sitting still after his cross country adventures. Lucky Portlanders ... you have a new neighbor.


Phatty's mom Cindy sent this note along with the last of their travel photos. We'll miss getting their roadtrip updates, but how cool that the crew is putting down some roots in Oregon. Welcome home, Cindy, Neil, Phatman and Sasha ... and thanks for letting us come along for part of the ride.
After approximately 7500 miles, 34 states and 24 cities - Phatman is back on the west coast...the Northwest. We're in Portland, OR. The trip back from the East Coast was pretty quick. We had stops in Niagra Falls, Chicago, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone and then on to Portland. We met many wonderful people along the way, who without Phatman, we would not have met. He's a people magnet for sure. If I had a $1.00 for every time someone said "Look at that head" I would have a lot of dollars!! We're glad to be back on the west coast and it looks like we'll be staying in Portland for awhile. - Cindy Kemp

Here's a last peek at his photo album, with new pix added: Phatman hopscotches America

Phatman,

Yep, they'd take-up a whole mountain each if they carved our Bull-Heads'replicas in stone. Also we carry another trait in common, ... watching our waist-line.

Mark out your territory and send homestead picture. Hope you keep smilin' in your new digs --

I'll check back, Boris

As a portlander, let me be the first to say WELCOME PHATMAN, and family. If there's anything we can do to make you're stay here better, let us know. (The gorgeous weather we're having is our first gift to you.) :)
