I just moved back to PDX after being gone for 6 years.
If I go for a quick (1 to 2 hour) drive I take Skyline Blvd. most of the time.
McNamee turns off Skyline down to HWY30 and is a fun road. Most of those roads off of Skyline are good with minimal traffic, but some of them are a bit bumpy.

If you go out towards the coast then there is HWY202 from Vernonia to Astoria which is fun.
Further down south on the coast there is HWY22 which is great.
And there are some good roads in wine country around (HWY219, Bald Peak Rd, ...).

But my absolute favorite is still HWY53, which connects HWY26 and Nehalem.

If I die, my biggest fear is that my wife sells all my toys for the price I told her I bought them for...
