Sloshed drivers help preserve history

I assume they must simply be trying to help maintain a century old tradition.

Re: Relics of history hidden in Gorge (News, July 12)

As a resident of the Gorge, I was very interested in your excellent feature about how old bottles collected from the Gorge waterway provide clues to the history of beer-brewing and partying that occurred in this area long ago.

The story also perhaps helps to explain why I see so many apparently sloshed drivers rocketing along Gorge Road at night. I assume they must simply be trying to help maintain a century old tradition.
