  1. No overturned police cruisers? No torched federal buildings? No violent mobs? This ain't Portland, this is Vancouver, BC, standing in for Portland.

    Road trips are so therapeutic to me

  3. Portland is wonderful. I live in Central Oregon, and every time I visit, it's like coming up for air after being underwater for too long.

  4. Hey, Freeway Brent, alway love this vid, how about making one US 101,on the Oregon Coast,

  5. The vibe is perfect when driving at night. Lots of arches, hills, twists, turns, and infrastructure. So pretty

  6. ahh… makes me feel like I'm back home… just a little bit. Didn't know i was so home sick that seeing night driving on the freeway would make me so oddly happy. >.<

    why'd I move to Florida again? Insanity I think.

  7. awesome stuff dude, i like the little bits of info you include on the bottom of the vid on these

  8. @igerould: I was thinking about doing just that, but I don't think my camcorder would have been able to capture as much of the downtown skyline, had I filmed the loop in the opposite direction. Oh well, not to worry. I'll be back up there in a month or two, to film the entire freeway network (as well as numerous streets, for an upcoming street tour).

    Thanks for watching! Glad you enjoyed the video.

  9. I've never seen Portland before. I love your nighttime freeway driving video. Thank you and I look forward to watching more of them.

  10. Yeah, Portland is an awesome city, almost like a cleaner and less-expensive San Francisco.

  11. LMAO! Weird, I've been on that bridge, dozens of times, and never noticed that until now. It's probably been there for years.

  12. Yeah, Deadmau5 and Kaskade always seem to come up with some ridiculously catchy songs. I think they're the best DJ tandem out there today!

  13. Great production despite the tough lighting conditions (nothing you can do about that) and a PERFECT song choice for the footage IMO.

  14. Hey, thanks!

    Honestly, Tucson and Portland have very little in common. Think of Portland as a cleaner, greener and more tree-shaded version of San Francisco, with a well-established sense of walkable, intimate neighborhoods and districts, all very lively and full of street life.

    Not to mention that the Portland metro has over 2 million people, while Tucson is just touching the 1 million mark, if I'm not mistaken?

  15. It's not a large city, but it's a VERY popular tourist destination, and indeed, a lot of east-to-west traffic is often headed for The Dalles, so in the larger scheme of things, it makes sense.

    Personally, I'd like to see Boise and The Dalles included on all signs, leading out of Portland.
