So who is going to Bend in July and Who wants to get together for a convoy down from the Northwest Region?  I know we had a blast when we went down to Carson City together, I think this trip could be just as much fun.  What do you think, let me know.

Depends on your route. If you go I84 out the Columbia Gorge I could meet you at Biggs Junction. Then we could head south on Hwy 97 suncountry2010-06-04 19:23:12

Thats a great plan.
7643, Larry and myself will be leaving the Elma area and cutting across 12 and can meet anyone coming from the north at exit 88. Then lets pick up folks as we head on south!
Just need a time.

Mark & the NW Convoy to Bend,

Do yourselves a big favor & stop at the Peter Skene Ogden Wayside State Park:
This State Park and rest stop is located a few miles north of Redmond.  This is a pleasant rest stop with three bridges that span the Crooked River gorge. There is a railroad bridge that is about 100 years old, a highway bridge that is no longer in use, and the new highway bridge. You can walk out onto the old highway bridge and look down into the gorge for an unbelievable  view, about 300-350 feet if I remember, (bring your bungie cords!!).  There are a couple of small waterfalls that spill over the side of the sheer cliffs and drain into the river.  Peter Skene Ogden was an early fur trader who led the first recorded journey into Central Oregon in 1825. He later discovered  Mt. Shasta and the city of Ogden, Utah is named for him. There are several informational signs about him and Central Oregon located within this park.
Most definitely worth the stop,  and it has bathrooms too!!!
Mike

That might be the best reason for stopping LOL
 
Thanks for the suggestion Mike Thumbs Up  I'd like to check it out if time permits.  Some folks are in a hurry to get to Bend though, we will see.

Here is my .02 Cool
If you cross the 205 bridge near PDX, then take 84 east to Troutdale then you can pick up HWY 26,
That is why I'm suggesting Welches Thriftway parking lot. This is just before Government Camp and way before Mt Hood/Timberline. We take HWY 26 to Madras then south on HWY 97 to Redmond and then Bend.
What do you think?
I see we have a number of C3's coming from WA.Thumbs Up
How many from Oregon are going to connect up with the group?Ermm

I made your link clickable Wink
 
I think that would be a great place to link up.  Then we can meet up with everyone else traveling down 97 in Madras, OR.  I'm going to work on some times to meet up today.

Because you all don't want to go the long way and instead take the fun twisty mountain road, I may be forced to alter my plans. Julia and I may go to Portland on Monday to see family then join up with the pack theirWink

Looks like I have another change in plans. I am going to have to meet the group in Madras. Our son won't get back from his youth group trip until Tuesday so the trip to Portland is canceled. Do you have an eta for Madras?
