We like to take a drive in the summer up the windy Columbia River Gorge scenic highway, and push through the 10-20 mph curves as hard as our pucker factor will allow.
That is a great road, I have driven it many times myself. The next time you are out that way check out the road above the Maryhill Museum. SOVREN, the vintage road race guys, stage a hill climb there once a year. The road they run it on is the first paved road in Washington state and it is as curvy as a snake with a hunchback! I hope to run my Jeep on it sometime...
