Why Portland?

It's a little town in Jay County, Indiana, which is home to the biggest engine show in the world and meeting place for the members of the biggest engine club in the world (geographically speaking), the ATIS Stationary Engine Mailing List.

As a family, we've made the pilgrimage 5 times, seeing wonderful sights on the way. The tales of our experiences with accompanying photographs can be found at the links below.
