[s-cars] She may be FAT....

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.
