"Movin' On" in Portland, 1974

'Movin' On' wasn't a great show, but I liked it. The fact that it was filmed 'on the road' made it different and the two stars had a nice chemistry.

Just saw an episode filmed in my hometown, Portland. The story involves the boys giving a ride to man pushing his wife from Boise to Portland in a wheelchair. The great and underrated James Olson (best known for The Andromeda Strain) is the man.

But the greatest thing about the episode was seeing Claude Akins riding a mini-bike through Portland's famous department store, Meier and Frank (it's a Macy's now). I won't explain why he was riding a mini-bike, but it was pretty funny.
