2. There'* a State Police station at the Hwy20 exit in Albany (the next exit after your hotel).
3. If your radar goes nuts at Hwy34/I-5, don't sweat it. There'* a microwave communications corridor through there. 34, however, is heavily patrolled.
4. Have fun in the Terwilliger curves in Portland They're fun at night when there'* no traffic.

I'll get more info on the go-karts for you sometime this week at the latest.
So Bill,
We take what exit to get to our Hotel (Comfort Suites Inn)? Hwy 34 off of I-5 ?

Where are the Terwilliger curves, like on which hwy ? I-5 ?

Still require some directions of where to find the go-kart track.

In order, North to South:

Paul, the Terwilliger curves are through Portland. You'll probably be in Traffic, but at night they can be fun. http://www.chatteringmagpie.com/essa...er_curves.html
Quote:
The Terwilliger curves, just south of Portland, Oregon, constitute the most dangerous section of US Highway Interstate-5. I-5 extends approximately 1,380 miles from Canada to Mexico, but this two-mile stretch of *-curves has the highest concentration of road accidents.
Bullwinkle'* is easy to find. 20 miles south of Portland, just off I-5 in Portland. You might want to plan your arrival for Mid-day on this one, and meet up with Pfamily and DJ/Dad. http://www.fun-center.com/or/index.php?flash=yes This has a map and more info. I'm working on a discount for you, but I need to know what day you plan to attend, and how many. If you don't make the minimum 10 people, I can probably still swing it.

Thrillville USA has go-karts, but I think Bullwinkle'* is better. Thrillville is more of a traditional (but small) amusement park, including a Roller Coaster and some EXTREME rides. Also has 2 GREAT water slides. This is within 30 minutes (20 minutes in an SSEi) of Albany. http://thrillvilleusa.homestead.com/index.html

Albany has 2 exits, but one of them is an A/B setup. 234B is the one you want for Comfort Inn. Exit the freeway, loop back under to the East side, and you can't miss it. I believe that'* Knox Butte Road. The next Albany exit is 233 this is US Hwy 20, where we'll be starting the Covered Bridge Tour. This is where you'll have to enter the freeway southbound. 234 doesn't have a southbound entrance ramp. You can simply go south on either the west or east side of the freeway to get to the southbound ramp on the way to KOA to meet everyone. The State Police live here, as does Class A Audio, the location for our show/shine on Saturday afternoon. 6 miles further south is the Hwy 34 junction to KOA and Corvallis.

Thanks for all the info.

We're staying in Vancouver on Tues night and leaving for the US on Wed morning. Planning to stay over somewhere just south of Portland Wed night. Hopefully real close to Bullwinkles. Will probably do the karts there that day and then off to Thrillsville Thursday before arriving in Albany later that day so we can check in at the KOA after we check-in at the Comfort Inn.
It'* going to be a busy trip.

Sad news.
My delinquent daughter will probably not be with us. She left yesterday to go live with her boyfriend. ..........that was after I kicked her messy, lazy, lying, thieving, drunk, dope dealing, school failing, *** outa here

Ya got that right. ....and no fighting in the backseat with her bro.
....and less time waiting for her to wake up and prissy herself up in the a.m....or p.m. as is usually is.
Ya, I've now got a backseat spot for the cooler. :P

I feel better already.

After visiting the beach today, there won't be any problem finding bikini shots.
