If you do make it to Columbia State Park in CA, stop at the Saloon--I got the 'coldest' schooner of beer I have ever had there.

Heiner, I recommend a drive up from the east side of Mt. St. Helens. The drive is called Windy Ridge Overlook NFD-25. It is a twisty drive from ground level all the way up past tree line and to a lot that overlooks the side of Mt St. Helens that blew out. Below is Spirit Lake and a wonderful view overall. You have to be careful at the top as there are no guardrails. It is a perfect 356 road. Here is a map. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Windy+R ... 9663?hl=en

Hallo Heiner
I am in Roseburg, Oregon, on the TAN list, and a Porsche owner and fan.
If you are in the area give me a call.
I have some parts for our cars, and German is not a foreign language here.

Hello Heiner and Bettina, It sounds like I am not along your route. I live an hour south of San Francisco. If you are in this area please look me up.

On your way to Crater Lake it is easy to bypass the Peter Skene Ogden viewpoint. I have unknowingly bypassed it a few times but now my map is marked to view this impressive looking gorge. Also near there is Smith Rock State Park which to me looks like a worthwhile short stop.

I look forward to following your trip! It is amazing how reliable the 356 is. My wife and I plan to drive to Chicago and then to LA on Route 66, a 5,000 mile drive.

Safe travels!

Thanks for your IG handle, Heiner. I'm following.

And I will second the Mt. St. Helens recommendation from Leo!
