Driving through the Gorge recently, it occurred to me that it would make a great place for an OCIC. An hour from Portland, three hours from Seattle, etc. Californians zip up I-5 and turn right. BC'ers zip down I-5 and turn left. New Englanders take I-80, bear right at I-84 and you're there! The Texas crew is experienced, so they can figure it out for themselves.
Lots of twistys around for driving fun, Bonneville Dam, Cascade Locks, drive to dinner in Portland. What's not to like?
<Disclaimer> Not volunteering, just throwing it out there.
