What a drive!!!

I just pre-ran this entire route (with breakfast instead of lunch @ the resort). I started out 15 minutes before sunrise on empty ass roads at 9/10's! Epic drive. I cannot believe how banked the corners are on 'Greenspring Road'. Nothing else like it in the U.S. that I have ever driven!

All the roads are in great shape, no rocks anywhere. The secondary paved forest routes that we will be driving just had their pot holes repaired, so no 'rim benders' either!

This is a great mix of roads, just the right length of drive each way and they all have their own flavor...

Get those RSVP's to me! :banana:

If someone can let me crash I would make the drive from Oakland, Ca to Oregon. Sounds/looks
like fun and an amazing drive. How long is this drive btw? In miles/time, just curious.
I'm on the maybe list tho just because since it is the end of august I should have
the money to afford this trip, but I might not go depending on if some money I have
coming my way comes in on time.

You are welcome @ my home and can come in on Saturday evening to chill and get some rest. The drive AND lunch would be maybe 3 -3.5 hours total. The drive is probably 70-75 miles total. Keep us posted, looking to bump the number of cars coming! Would love to hit the magic number of twenty. You can print up the maps (to see the route) and a menu for lunch @ The Marina Inn @ the lake.

RalliTEK will make this! Sounds like fun. We need to come down and see you too, not all of you making the drive up!
Hey Garner! Put the word out there in Portland with your customers about the meet and let them know there are accommodations available for the people with long drives!!!

Wow!

Two weeks away and I am sooooo impressed with the list of people coming! Look at the diversity of forums on their way AND where people are coming from!!!

:banana::banana::banana:





Let's get it on and get more cars and cars leaving from even more destinations. If there are cars coming from further away then you live... Then shame on you!

Tourist Pics Of 'Lake Of The Woods'!

For those of you who have never seen 'Lake Of The Woods', I shot some pics as I passed it to fish the Williamson River today. As you can see, you can sit inside or on the porch, or even use the picnic tables. There are also a bunch of picnic tables in the shade between the restaurants.

The Marina Inn is an 'order up' and 'come get it', so you can eat at any of these spots. The REAL trick will be finding a parking solution... I will be speaking with management to see what we can do! :rolleyes:
