"It's pretty tough for two little farm kids to handle all of this", Ray Yoder, who lives in Goshen, said of the attention, which included being stopped by a stranger at the airport for a photo on the way to Oregon. "It took the boredom out of the highway to eat there because it was so much like home - we could order what we liked, and they always had what we liked".
The Yoders' favorite menu items are potato casserole, or blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup for breakfast time.

Swaraj added that they endeavoured to deliver food but US Coast Guard did not allow as boats were required for rescue operations. The students were marooned in the campus after the Hurricane Harvey depredated various cities in the United States of America.
Ray said he began stopping at Cracker Barrel locations in the 1960's as he made his way across the country as an RV driver. "We really have enjoyed it, but we didn't do it to come to this type of ending the way it is now". That's when he started a unique quest: to visit every Cracker Barrel Old Country Store in the country. Ray told the crowd, "Everybody has a hobby and that's what we chose to do". "Well everybody does something - usually - so we thought we would do this and it would be fun, so uh, yeah, it worked out", Yoder said.
Not only is the Tualatin store the first in the Portland area, it's also the only Cracker Barrel on the West Coast.
