At the Evergreen museum, you can spend and extra $20 for a cockpit tour of the Spruce Goose, where (if you ask nicely) they let you sit in the pilot's seat.


Boeing Field also has a little known and visited Connection Museum, which is the old telephone switching building for the Boeing plant. They have every generation of telephone switching equipment on display, and lots of antique avionics. I think they are only open on Sundays.


Anyway, hope you have a great time.
Thank You, Stuck at Evergreen for a couple of nights snow where we are heading, 9-15" in the Gorge today, our rental car has nice smooth summertime tires.

Hood River sounds like a great stop.

Mike
