Julie and I want to say thank you to Butch for putting this trip together. Everything went well even with the virus thing going on. The folks in central/eastern Oregon are much less bothered by the whole deal. Nice to get away with good people. Cars all ran well and no issues. 800 miles over three days is a lot of seat time. A big THANK YOU!

What a great introductory trip. Thanks to the group for making me feel welcome and watching my back, even when I was a little slow for the group.

Had a great time; it’s hard to not have a perma-smile on your face cruising down the road 5 Cobras in a row.

I also appreciated the valuable input and advice. It is always welcome, and I look forward to implementing the suggestions.

Thanks for a great time! Looking forward to the Picnic.

On the way over to Prairie City we drove through central Oregon, literally. Post, Oregon is the geographic center of the state.
359674


Here are Lindy and Butch at the happening spot:
359666


Our route took us to The Little Dragon of Oregon State Route 245 ‘Dooley Mountain Highway.
359668


The Little Dragon stacks up 188 corners in a short 14 miles as the road climbs from open farmland in the valley below. Here are Julie and Lindy:
359663


The first day ended in Prairie City with a bunch of cobras parked on main street.
359667


We finished the day off by taking over the bar at the Hotel Prairie. They were closed but that did not stop us.

These are Butch's pictures. The only function he knows how to do for sure on his smartphone. Calls are even hard.
