Wish I'd have seen this thread earlier. I have made the drive from Phoenix to Portland in a 26' Penske truck with an Acura MDX in tow. We took the route offered by Google, which was the Grapevine and "The 5" North. Oregonians call it "The 5"; not sure if everyone else refers to it as that.

My friend drove with his foot planted on the floor at all times. I think it was governed to 70 MPH and a certain RPM.

Would have been neat to meet you Xist. Maybe next time I'm in Phoenix?

That's California transplant talk for "eye five".

Reminds me of this quiz, which placed my origin at Portland. Coming from Salem, I'd say it pretty much nailed me.

If you take this quiz, read through all answers first, as there are small nuances.
