Gamers lost in the hinterland...

So, my wife kidnapped me this last weekend. We went from South Eastern Washington to Central Western Oregon. It's about a six and a half / seven hours (depending on who's driving and who's sleeping...)

Here's the krux of the post though - if you wander off the beaten path is search of a gaming store... they ain't there. I searched for a while using my iPhone for a game store / comic book shop... something that might carry GW stuff. Nothing. Nada. GW's webpage has the nearest place in Corvallis - which is about an hour or so over a mountain pass...

When we got back into Portland while driving home, we could have stopped at quite a few stores... but here's the question - do you stop at other games stores while you're traveling?


  1. Poor, poor Trent... Had to suffer without a gaming stop when kidnapped by the kid and wife (kid's got a strong arm to be draggin' you out of the house, kicking and screaming, btw). And, to top it all off, you had to be trapped with family during parts of the weekend! ICK! :)

  2. Heck yes you do. I always find that the game stores outside of my own garden are way better that the ones back home proving once and for all the grass really IS greener over that mountain pass.
