My husband and I, in our late 50s are visiting some friends in McMinnville in early June. Our tentative plan is to rent a car when we fly to Portland visit in McMinnville and then drive to Vancouver B.C. We aren't outdoorsy but would like to see Mt. St. Helens on the way up. I am assuming right now from things I have read that one day would be really pushing it. I have no real desire to spend time actually in Seattle (don't mind but not essential --been there done that and we may end up having to do a one way care rental and flying out of there anyway). I'd appreciate a sense of real drive times , ideas of where to overnight and and any other advice or recommendations. And although this isn't the correct forum, anyone got any ideas what the border wait times will be on friday or Saturday?
