During Day 2, President David Palmer was on vacation in Oregon with his son Keith, staying at the presidential retreat near Lake Oswego. Among other engagements, Palmer was scheduled to meet with the University of Oregon's regents, tour the Nike campus, and make an appearance with Governor Schulman. However, after receiving an urgent message about an imminent terrorist attack, Palmer was forced to cut short his fishing trip and relocate to the Northwest Regional Operations Complex.
