I'm planning a round-trip from Seattle to Bend & Portland next weekend, and I'm looking for DGers to join in on the good times. I'm open to have someone make all/part of the trip with me, and also to have locals meet me at some of the courses I plan on hitting.
My itinerary (which is somewhat of a rough draft): leave Fri. morning 6/26 and drive to central OR, set up camp, then play Hyzer Pines (in Sisters) until we want to call it a day. Saturday morning head to Mt. Bachelor (outside Bend) for some awesome mountain golf -- I played there last summer and can't wait to go back. The ski lift is supposed
to run until 8 PM, but we'll want to leave quite a bit before that to head toward Portland. The PDX area courses I definitely want to play on Sunday 6/28 are Pier Park (NW side of town) and Trojan Park (~40 miles north of Portland), as those are the RCO courses. After that, the dream is over -- I need to be back in Seattle by 6 PM on Sunday. If you are near any of these courses and available to play a round with an out-of-towner any time that weekend
(again, my schedule isn't
final), PM me!
There are 2 other options I'm also considering adding to the trip... (a) leave Mt. Bachelor early enough on Saturday to add a disc stop in one of Eugene/Corvallis/Salem, and camp there Saturday night instead of near Portland. (b) another alternative for Sat. evening: find some live music in the Portland area. the most appealing option I know of is the "Brews, Blues & BBQ" festival in Stevenson, WA.
If you want to make the trip with me, my 4-door sedan is inherently limited for space, so I can't realistically bring more than 1 passenger plus our discs and camping gear, food, etc
-- 2 people (you + me) would be perfect, though. We would do our best to split costs evenly: gas, groceries, any camping fees, etc. I am willing to share my 2-person tent, camping stove and other such amenities. I am also open to you bringing CDs you like, as long as it's not all top-40 pop... bonus pts. if you have an iTrip.
My ideal travel mate is someone who loves road tripping, is pretty much willing to stick to these plans, doesn't mind getting up early
, has fairly eclectic musical tastes, and observes good hygeine. PM or call me!!!
