Awesome. Thanks for sharing. The cliff in the background of the second picture is beautiful (and so is your CX3).

When I saw "Oregon Trail" in the thread title, I first thought of the old computer game.

Yup! That's exactly what I had in mind when creating the title. Best game growing up.

So where did you start your adventure? Are you from Oregon or did you head there from another state?

Great photos. Oregon is beautiful.

How did the CX-3 handle on the loose gravel?

Funny, this game was featured in season 2 of "Person of Interest". Just finished watching it and pow, here it is in this forum. Weird

I know during the low powerband we can expect it to be grippy and immediately so on loose gravel it should still be grippy and in that handle well, you just have a to get a feel for how exactly it is.

I'm from Vancouver in Canada. So Oregon was about a 6 hour drive. Then we worked our way from there. It was a great way to break in the car!

It was perfect. Some of the hikes we went on required to go a bit off road. I found it to be grippy like CXIII said. the turning radius seemed to be wider when going a bit faster. We then went on some rocky roads which the clearance was perfect on this car.
