Patriotic Car Rally Instructions

Portland Patriotic Car Rally Instructions


Congratulations on joining in on this exciting, interactive adventure touring the greater Portland area in a quest for patriotic knowledge and insights. Below you will find instructions to help you make this event as enjoyable as possible.


You will be visiting ten patriotic sites on a 50-mile loop. You can begin the car rally from anywhere in the greater Portland area. It will take approximately three hours if you drive the most efficient route and take five minutes at each stop. Well ahead of time, simply text "Patriotic Car Rally" to 503-314-3773. You will be sent instructions to get to the closest site from where you wish to start. Then you continue from one stop to another until you close the loop.


The Goal

The goal of this event is to visit as many of the sites as possible and complete the car rally accumulating as many points as possible. Each site is worth ten points. You will be making ten stops throughout the Greater Portland area, so the total is 100 points. There are extra credit opportunities on the route. At each site you will take a group photo. All photos should be in landscape (horizontal) orientation. When you have completed the loop, text your photos to 503-314-3773. We will add up your score and let you know where you rank.


You Will Need

A vehicle (with enough fuel for the drive)

Your posse (driver and as many people as you can talk into coming with you)

A few bucks

One or more smart phones or tablets in the car (more phones = more fun). Make sure your phone is charged. You may wish to have a charging cable in the car. If you don't have a working phone, you will be dead in the water.

     • Navigation app (Google maps, Apple maps, Waze, etc.)

     • Web search app (Google, etc.)

     • Photo app (you will be asked to take a group photo at each stop to prove you were there)

Please be careful with the children as most of these stops are all close to roadways.
