Agreed about driving in Oregon. Generally very good roads, except where
concrete freeways have been rutted from studs. We also seem to have a
disproportionately high ratio of cops to drivers on the interstates (and
generally not enough traffic to hide in). Maybe even worse in southern WA.
I found it much easier to speed on the freeways in CA, where you can always
find a string of cars to follow at 80-90 mph.
If anyone's passing through the Hood River (Columbia River Gorge) area, get
in touch. We've got some pretty sweet roads here around Mt. Hood.
