    Eugene, Bend, Redding on the way back. Back to the old college stomping grounds, back to one of my fave do-whatever-you-want vacation spots on the map, and a first-ever stop for more than fuel and a bite after decades of bombing though on the 5. I've lined up two articles, five rounds of golf, three cool bike rides and will find plenty of good brews and good food. Might even make time for some Oregon Pinot.

    Add: And most of it will be with two guys with whom I've tripped for more than 20 years!!

    I love hitting the open road with a little flexibility at each of the stopping points. America the beautiful! Have fun Ken.

    Thanks, braddah. I did a 3000+ excursion last September -- wine country and the redwood coast, Oregon coast, all over Washington, Idaho panhandle, central Oregon, north-central CA. Terri flew in for part of the middle stretch. It wasn't a Euro Grand Tour or a trip to the Antipodes, but epic it was. I road tripped a lot over the years with my parents, my dad -- across Canada, to the east coast, up through the Yukon, to see family in MN, all OVER the west. When I got back last year I marked up a AAA map with the various legs and stops, and mailed it to my dad. He'll pull it out every once in a while and call me and ask questions, or reminisce about some of our trips. He's hard to reach emotionally at times, but that one surely did.

    Beer land up there... That's saying something since I'm from SD. Sounds like a great trip! Done it a couple times...

    Steve, SD County learned WELL the lessons of Portland/Bend/Oregon, and now really could be the leader of the pack.

    Given all the latest in your otherwise "normal" life, this sounds like perfect timing.
