This was on the side of a fence by the Chevron station of the corner of McLoughlin and Courtney in Milwaukie, Oregon. The writer misspelled the word destruct. It isn't possible to determine whether the commentary was meant as a reaction to high gasoline prices or a more general gripe.

I departed at 6:00 AM and arrived at 10:00 AM at Government Camp:
Government Camp is an unincorporated community and census-designated place located in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States, on the base of Mount Hood and north of Tom Dick and Harry Mountain. It is the only town within 5 miles (8 km) of Mount Hood and therefore is the de facto "mountain town" or "ski town". It is the gateway to several ski resorts, with the most popular being Timberline Lodge and Mount Hood Skibowl. Government Camp also has its own, smaller ski resort, Summit Pass.
The community is located within the Mount Hood Corridor on U.S. Route 26 (the Mount Hood Highway), near its intersection with Oregon Route 35 and the Barlow Passsummit of the Cascade Range. As of the 2010 census, the community had a population of 193. The government's 2016 estimate indicated a population of 121 persons.

The ultimate destination at Mt. Hood whether you ski or snowboard, want a great dining experience, and/or want to stay overnight is Timberline Lodge. It is high up on the mountain so in winter four wheel drive and sometimes chains are recommended. Click below for information.
