    That's a nice climb up to Crown Point. From Troutdale, it's 930 feet in a little over 9 miles.

    Dogbait.

    I have a Trek 520 (the next year's model, I believe), only it is set up as a half-ass racer/commuter. His looks better.

    That's Weed Eater, used to post here quite a bit when he lived in Oakland, but he moved to Porland last October. You didn't mention that he gave a shout out to me! (robert w) I gave him some phil hubs as a parting gift when he went to Portland...figured he'd need them for the rain. He was the best client a messenger could ever have. Would order 'rush' jobs but not need it til the end of the day, and my first day on the job many moons ago it was raining buckets and he left some homemade cookies for me on the porch with the load.

    Take I-84 or Marine Dr. east to Troutdale from Portland. The road to Crown Point is called the Historic Columbia River Highway.... goes through Springdale and Corbett.
