A “road trip” is most definitely the quintessential American travel experience. From wandering through idyllic scenic byways to dining on local cuisine and taking in quirky roadside attractions (humanoid rabbit, for example), the memories of a bygone road trip are fondly etched into our memories.

We’ve been following the adventures of Matt Gross, a reporter of the New York Times who has been trekking through the country on a journey from New York City to Seattle on a mission to “make new friends,” and stumble onto “new vistas and obscure cuisines” along the way. Next week, Matt will trek through Oregon and would love to know what roadside attractions, unique events and interesting places he should visit. Please visit his road trip site and tell him where you think he should go.

~ Happy Friday, Mo
