I got “glouster”. However, I can’t spell it.
to be perfectly fair, one should challenge our British friends to pronounce the place-names in the Pacific Northwest.
For example, GERVAIS is Jervis.
Corvallis is Core-VAL-is
Millersburg is MILL-ers-Berg
Philometh is phil-OH-meth
And Alsea is al-SEE
So .. GB is not the only place which has unpronounceable place names; Oregon does the same, and we’re rather proud of our unique Indian heritage.
oh, and BTW: “Canby” is pronounced “CAN_BEE”, not CAN_BYE”. i realize it gets a little tricky, but you have to live here to ask for directions .. nuh?
