Well, maybe not the country, but we spent the weekend in a little town outside of Hillsboro, Oregon with a friend. It was extremely restful. We got to fly in a Cessna around Portland, buzz Mount St Helens and fly out over Astoria and down the coast. We spent 2.5 hours in the air in that tiny craft and had 4 landings (it was our friends flying lesson). Landing in a crosswind with a newbie pilot is extremely scary. As is the "engine out" drill. I even spent a lot of time playing on an Xbox and reading. Dean Koontz really freaks me out.
And I want a house just outside of Seaside. That would be perfect.
