Five days and 105 miles on the beautiful Willamette River, this year is sure to bring more adventure on Oregon's true "blue" highway. Wonderful camps in amazing settings next to the Willamette, plenty of fresh food, wine, and beer produced from the surrounding valley, music and good company, all the while supporting Willamette Riverkeeper's work to protect, preserve, and restore the amazing waterway that is the Willamette River. Check out Paddle Oregon for more information and to register for the trip.
Don't tell anyone, but I bet Brooks five bucks that Robin's bass could float the two of us down the river, so he and I are going to give it a try when she's not looking.
If that works out okay, we'll be playing in camp on Tuesday, August 16th, the second night of the trip, at Chatoe Rogue Farmstead Nano Brewery. Fiddle tunes on the the deck of Rogue's tasting room, right next to the hopyard, farm, and the Willamette River on a summer evening in Oregon. Sounds like a perfect evening to me.
