Jim Fisher is a writer and amateur historian specializing in the Pacific Northwest from 1629 to present.1 A native Oregonian, Jim researched and developed the Shanghaied in Portland tour based in one the more fascinating periods of local history.
- 1629 is the year a noted English explorer2. mentioned a “vile stynking fogge” (sic) while sailing somewhere off the left coast of North America. That has to be Oregon.
- Sir Francis Drake or someone like that.
Dave Paull, another native Oregonian, is a guide and re-enactor for SinCityPortland walking tours.1. Dave brings a wealth of experience and knowledge as a native ‘Portlandian’ with a long professional background in radio broadcasting. He is a journalist with performing arts tendencies, having acted in plays for several community theaters in Portland. Dave helps keep Portland weird. Not as weird as Jim, but suitably weird nonetheless.
- Dave is responsible for hosing Jim down with cold salt water every fortnight or so simply to keep his character salty.
