ok, i had to use google to find that location. first off, i-205 is north south so it’s i-205 southbound (yes, it goes east west down there, but that’s the way it’s labeled) secondly, i’ve lived here for 30 years and had never heard of borland, it’s the stafford road exit. they should have just said wanker’s corner though!

Just as confusing as when reporters call 99w near McMinnville going north/ south when really it goes east / west until the Hwy reaches Lowe`s & then makes a sharp turn making the road truly north/ south. All of 99w is really headed towards Portland & Sherwood & Newberg cities & so is really going east / west in direction. Thankfully we have lived here for 65 years & so are used to the conflicting & confusing at times directions!
