Don't listen to them Ranger. They are silly. Except for Jacoby Elsberry Boston Red Sox fielder, who grew up in Madras OR and played at OSU. He's a damn fine ball player. It's okay to like him.

Jacobie is a great young player, he just need's to learn NOT to get hurt, it's like he's accident prone!!

So Uno, Tuna collars, salmon collars and wings (smoked and fresh) available??, oh and halibut cheeks?

Did some wine tasting in the Missouri River valley today. Bought a couple of bottles of their signature wine today to bring to the peep meet. It is a big red

I would say it's about 150 miles. You head over 58 and Willamette Pass to 97. It's a beautiful drive. You can visit Salt Creek Falls outside of Oakridge. Another pretty place to check out. Near there is a place I believe called Deception Creek. I always told my kids they were now in bigfoot country. You will also go by Odell Lake with a view of Diamond Peak.

Crater Lake is beautiful. You can spend an hour or two there checking out the sights.

On the way back if you didn't want to go back the same way you could do a loop and go over the North Umpqua highway to Roseburg then head north to Eugene.

Couple options here. When we head up the mountain, we can go hwy 126 to the lava beds and loop back and return via 58, passing Odell and Waldo lakes and Salt creek falls. I have an old hunt camp up on top of Deception ridge I've spent countless nights at. It IS bigfoot country. In fact the monster hunters tv show did an episode up in that area a few years ago. (They didn't find one though. Go figure.)

Crater lake is well south on the east side of the mountain. We could make a go of it if you like. I would be a long day of driving if you're up for it. The tunnel at Salt creek is closed right now and there is no other pass connecting to 58 but it should be open by then.

I will take you where ever you want to go up there. It's all spectacular high country. It's another "too much to see" situations but we can see alot in a day.

We learned in Colorado it's always good to have a trail boss, sounds great Uno.

I understand the "too much to see"!

I'm just the mountain guide, designated driver so you and Cheryl can stay hydrated along the dusty trail. I'll plot out some loops as mentioned by jevens and also one including the Sisters lava beds for you to review.

So this adventure is going to take place Monday? Then you head to Portland for your flight Tuesday?
