Butch, I really enjoyed a Cobra Trip to Whistler BC last summer. Great lodging and restaurants for 2 nights, and great day runs around that area. I might do that again next summer.

Just updated my "Done" list so far. Headed over "Cowboy Dinner Tree" this wknd and also will add a trip around "Crater Lake Rim" plus drive up to Paulina/East Lake, than over to Brazada Ranch Resort, than over to my son's cabin at "Lake Billy Chinook" and than over to Prineville to see a buddy. Maybe even drive up to "Timberline Lodge" on the way home! Just saying--- School starts on Sept 3rdlol

Great thread. I have been driving the wheels of my Cobra this year. My goal is over 5k miles. Next summer, we are hoping to drive up to Washington and back through Oregon to see if we can meet up with fellow car people. I would have loved to meet up with the Oregon people for their coast run. If they do that next year, we will be there. It is funny, but my wife and I have been talking about driving up the coast and camping from the Cobra. With the backpacking gear, we could pull it off.

Keep driving.

Just updated my list(again) lol.
Went down to Crater Lake and drove the rim and than went over to "The Cowboy Dinner Tree Cafe" near Silver Lake Oregon and also went up to Paulina/East Lake. Just another 'lil 750mi drive! The "Cowboy Dinner Tree Cafe" was fantastic food! Best steak(only 33oz.) I have had anywhere in the world!! Just saying--
