  1. 8 of 11. I should have done better than that.
    Oregon is also famous for speed traps if you have a California license plate. And a bumper sticker that says it is pronounced “OR-A-GUN”. And also, the one I really like is “Don’t Californicate Oregon”.

  2. The one I got wrong was actually correct: “Settlers in wagon trains came long the Oregon Trail in the 1840s.” It’s no problem, I know a lot about Oregon because I wanted to go and live there some years ago and did a lot of research. Thanks for posting the quizz.
