This will stay successful if the places are fairly recognizable, and with in a short (less than 1 hour or so) ride. If the distance gets too far, folks won't have the time to run out. If they are close it will be a chase! I would have loved to get the Soap Creek school. Chances would be better I would be on a bicycle. No time....... perhaps the next one.
Rules state "your bike" it doesn't say motorcycle, I think you get bonus points for your bicycle. The wind and the risk is the same, I don't think anyone here would object, so go for it!!!

Ahhh, Tangent. My office is out near Creekside. Not so far to go, but on the other hand getting through Corvallis was the longest part of my trip (got behind some grandma on 53rd and couldn't pass). But as for posting, I live in NORTH Albany, so I just cut through Adair and came home the back way.

Saturday's challenge - when you get back from your ride.

...

This one should be pretty easy. Sorry, the picture isn't that hot. I forgot about the ditch in front of the statue and the road shoulder is pretty narrow. Extra points if you can remember what advertising icon the "teen" kid is part of ...

Working on this between things at work.

Thanks

I guess I better tell where the last picture was.. Shirley May's Restaurant, a few miles east on Hwy 20 close to Cottonwoods. You guy's have all picked great places... now to go figure what to post up.

I believe the Icon is one of the statues made for A & W .. there was a family of them.

The pictures are from my cell phone... so forgive the quality. This is going to be easy.. Wish I had more time today....out of time ..... heading for coast in hour or so.

Thank You to the person who thought up this game. Have Fun

Very good, Cruizer ... here's the rest of the family (Papa, Mama, and Baby):

The Teen Burger was A&W's best seller, back in the day. Your basic bacon-cheeseburger...

What I want to know is, how old is the photo of the A&W family? That must be from the 70's?

The photo I posted was of a private collection (notably missing the Teen ... seems suspicious...). The Burger Family was phased out in the early 70's (except, apparently, in Canada) and was replaced by the rather lame "Great Root Bear" as the mascot. You can find pictures of a number of the Burger Family in private collections. I hear the complete set is still on display up in Hillsboro at a former A&W that is now an auto dealer.

Great Breackfast
It sure would be nice to see Shirley's repainted all original except for A&W label on rootbeer.

Have any of you ever stopped and tried to eat the 2 huge hotcake's, 2 egg's, 2 sausage..$4.25 week day special at Shirley May's? The pancakes droop over the edge of the plate. Also, another great place for breakfast is at the Otis Cafe near Lincoln City. Good bike ride area too

I kind if figured somebody would have got my picture figured out and posted before I got back.

I know where it is, but job keeps getting in my way. I'll go get it after work if Jeff doesn't beat me too it.
