Foot Long Gone
Chilled from a weekend of camping in the rain (at the lovely though goose poop-ridden campground at the mouth of the Deschutes River), I wasn't sure I was ready for a foot-long soft serve ice cream. Wasn't sure Cascade Locks' East Wind drive-in would even be open, seeing how it's not quite summer season yet. But last Sunday we cruised off I-84 just in case — and tragedy! The classic 1940 snack shack we heard about on our show about the proposed Columbia Gorge casino was closed and up for sale. The Windermere listing agent says the owners will throw in all the equipment and history with the $395,000 list price. I thought about it... but I really just want to eat ice cream, not sell it. You?
The picture is from East Wind's better days.
