Exclamation Wa 14 bad

Just got back from a car trip to Portland and went down WA 14 all the way to Vancouver. 75% of the way was an obstacle course trying to avoid the potholes. I strongly recommend that you not take this road until the DOT has repaired all the potholes. Calling them potholes does not do them justice. They are more like craters. I figure that a good majority of them are at least 6 inches deep and 2 feet across. Bad enough in a car, I hate to think what would happen to a motorcycle/rider that hit one of these at 50 mph.

Hmf. Pretty sad considering how much time I and probably a lot of other people around here spent in 30min tailbacks over the last two years due to this:
