    Depends on what you like to do...

    If you are an outdoorsy kinda person then I recommend Silver Falls National Park.

    http://www.silverfallspark.org/

    If you want to see fast cars, then go to the test and tune each Friday night at Woodburn Speedway.

    http://www.woodburndragstrip.com/

    If you are cultured and enjoy the finer things then go here...

    http://www.willamettevalleyvineyards.com/?s=home

    And if your slighly less cultured then go here...

    http://www.theram.com/
    Oregon Trader Breweries (Albany)
    Oregon Trail Brewery (Corvallis)
    Suds & Subs (Corvallis) - You can do your laundry too!
    http://rogueales.com/ (Newport) **** Four Stars ****
    http://www.widmer.com/ (Portland)

    And if you want to travel a little then hit the coast.

    You can just sight see...

    http://www.oregoncoast101.com/

    There ain't a piece of the Oregon Coast that ain't BEAUTIFUL.

    If you bring a 4x4 with ya then head down to...

    http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/siuslaw/recreation/tripplanning/oregondunes/index.shtml

    If you choose to do this then let me and perhaps Jeremy (55Willys) know and maybe we can get some people together for a one day run.

    Listen, you can't visit and then leave Oregon without drinkin' some of our beer and wine, visiting our coast, or at least hiking in our forests.

    Email if you are interested in a trip to the coast.

    oh trust me, there will be plenty of consumption going on. not sure if i'll have time to hit the coast, or to hike in the forest though. the plan is to work all 12 days we're that. makes for maximum $ when we get back. but when the rally and/or service center close down, its all up to us.

    my favorite mexican restaraunt in america is in salem. we could eat there one night if you want. it's called la margarita, right downtown. i lived in salem for 14 years, but that was 7 years ago. when are you coming out? it will be easier for us to hang out if it's after sept. 6, as i turn 21 on that day and nothing is open to minors in salem after 10pm. la margarita is freaking awesome tho. :D:D:D:D

    checked it out last night. we were staying at the Shiloh Inn right across the street. not a bad joint, not real crazy about the live punk band, but hey, beaver oil factories, boobies, and beer. i can deal with a little noise.

    we're in Springfield for the next week. anything interesting here?

    we're gonna try to go to the coast this weekend, since we're off. any of you guys know where we can rent quads?
