2nd on Evergreen and if you happen to enjoy wine there are several very good vineyards in the same general area. I spent a lot of time in that area 20ish years ago when in college for my undergrad at Linfield.

Evergreen is well worth a visit. Not too far is the WAAAM museum at Hood River (4S2). They roll out some of their antique aircraft and motors on the second Saturday of the month.

Nice scenic flight past Mount Hood to the (windy) Columbia River gorge.

Ariel - welcome.
With a little planning you can avoid or lessen your travel times around Portland.
Example - if you are staying downtown, you donít want to be headed out of town anytime after 2:00pm until about 6:00 or so. If your headed into town, things start to get messy around 6:00am and stay that way until 8:30ish.
Getting across town can be 30 minutes, or it can be an hour and a half. Portland has grown a lot and traffic can be bad.
If you get to the Northern Oregon Coast, pm me. We will be in Manzanita that week and I can show you around a bit. I might have the airplane there, but too early to tell what the weather might be. The scenery on the Coast is amazing and would be a stark contrast from home.
Have fun.

Hi Ariel,
If you would like to have dinner with 30 or so pilots and their spouses, Thursday night on the Aurora airport is our Columbia Aviation Association dinner and meeting. It is a mixed group of a few RV, professional and other recreational pilots. It would be a great exchange of flying experiences between our countries.
Social at 6:00, dinner at 7:00, speaker/meeting 8:00-9:00.
You would be my guest. Clubhouse is right behind the tower.
