• The drive from Portland to Seattle was the shortest drive of the year for me. I was pleased to be able to get to a new destination city in about 3 hours time.

  • Traveling and taking to the open road has always been romanticized and considered to be the “it” thing to do if you want to go on an adventure. And that’s all true. You can have the adventure of a lifetime driving the roads that connect your country together. It’s amazing. You’ll experience views that will […]
