My wife an I flew into Evergreen through the Portland Class C airspace.
Whew! I don't recommend it, rather go around and approach from the
northwest, avoiding the Class C...we had heard about Evergreen Aviation
and Wally Olson, who has been instructing there continuously for over 50
years, is 85 years old, and still holds a second class medical. We were
pleased to see one of the last grass strips, along with a narrow paved
runway. At Evergreen Aviation, we were greeted by a very friendly group of
fellows who hang out there. They were SO helpful. Wally scrounged 
an Evergreen Aviation cap for me, even though they had sold out years
before. It was very much reminiscent of the old days, friendly pilots,
classic aircraft, grass tiedown areas, old hangars. There were many old
pictures around the office, one of Wally's Jenny, which has a current
annual, and is stored at the air museum at Pearson Field, a few miles
away. We got a chance to see it later that day at the Pearson museum.
