    Group hang heaven, Oregon

    I was driving on I-84 on my way back to Portland when I passed by Boardman, Or and its tree farms. Go to Google maps and type in N 45.81730 W 119.53331 or N 45.82517 W 119.57543 Go to street view on I-84 to see what I was looking at.

    It made my mouth water. Trees planted every 12-15 feet, and plenty big enough to hang from. Acres of shady bliss. All we'd need to do is get the landowners permission, and there would be plenty of room for thousands of hangers. We could have our own Woodstock.

    Ah, the stuff dreams are made of.

    Sounds like the start of a Hanging Convention

    It's owned by a company called potlatch. Amongst other things they make(or used to any way) Toilet paper. I told my daughter (she was 5 when I told her) this and now every time we pass by there she says "Look Dad, Toilet Paper" I don't know that I would be comfortable stopping there as it is across the street from most of the US chemical weapon stockpile...
