The Greshamptons (n)

The most optimistic possible term for Portlanders’ postrecessionary “vacation” destinations practically within sight of I-205.

In a sentence “Unemployment might be down, but I checked my portfolio and it still looks like we’re going to the Greshamptons again this year. The good news: that great little cabin on the Sandy River is available. Indoor plumbing!” See also: Estacadia; Molallaland; subscribing to SkyMall
