We Do It Harder In Bend 

The idea for a Reverse PPP brings to mind the difference I have noticed between the two places I split my time: Bend and Portland.

Where else but Bend would something as physically taxing as the PPP cry out for making it harder. In Portland amongst my friends I am considered pretty 'jocky', being a long time alpine climb leader, an immediate past President of the Mazamas, a road and mountain bike rider, daily aerobic workout maven, softball player on four teams, skier and hiker and anything else I can find to do. Yet in Bend amongst my friends I am considered 'woosie boy'. Here, everything I do is amongst loads of people who do it far better.

Bend may be in an economic depression but those who play are still playing hard and making me appreciate what a remarkable collection of athletes have gravitated here. - Gerald Itkin
