the group will leave @ 10:30am and head down to I-84 and hit the speeds to Crown Point Vista House view point, the group will spend about 1/2 hour checking out the sights and take photo ops. We'll head out via "the old historic hwy" towards Multnomah falls, the group will be stopping again here for restroom breaks and the such.....(maybe a contest to see who can get to the top first?)....and yes you'll have to run or walk...you cant drive....

I might suggest the use of this site for planning routes for cruises.
http://ridewithgps.com/

You create the route then people with a properly equipped GPS can DL the route to their GPS among other cool features. Its fantastic, and you can embed the routes for forums and display an interactive window online.
