Glen,

Don't know which route you're planning on taking to Bend but Wally and I will be rolling down US-395 towards Kennewick early in the afternoon on Wednesday.  It all depends on how far we get into Montana on Tuesday and what time we get on the road Wednesday morning. 

If we get to Big Timber, MT on Tuesday it is about 9+ hours from there to Kennewick.  So if we're rolling by 6 o'clock MDT (5 o'clock PDT) that would put us in Kennewick between 2:00 and 3:00 PDT and then into Bend about 4 hours later.  That may be later than you want arrive in Bend though.

I will let you know hopefully soon. I would like to get to Bend by early afternoon so I can see my sister who lives there. She will be leaving Friday morning to pick my parents up at the airport in Redmond then drive to the Olympic Peninsula for my niece's wedding (mom is not very happy with me for not being at the wedding). So my only time to meet up with with my sister is either Wednesday afternoon of early Thursday evening.

No worries.  Our travel plans aren't cast in stone yet.  We may try to get some miles done on Monday night which would put us in Kennewick earlier on Wednesday.  We'll keep you posted.

Glen,
Madras is only 1 to 1 1/2 hours from Welches... depending on your driving and traffic.
So I'm not sure of the meeting time at Welches...yet.
When do you plan on being at Madras? 
There is a McDonalds we can meet at, and a gas station so we can fill up if needed.
Steve

Dave - if you're coming up from the south think about hanging a right on US 97 in northern California and save a few miles and saddle time.

Glen - Madras is a 7 hour run from Coeur d'Alene (if we make it that far on Tuesday) so I'm guessing we'll be a bit behind you.  We're planning to make Bend between 4 and 5 o'clock.

Jim,
That was my original plan, to come up from Orick, CA to Bend. But I think it will be more fun to meet the NW Gang and cruise into the hotel with them.
If I can get to Grants Pass in lower OR on I-5 Tuesday night, it is a short 4 hours to wetvet's place in Lake Oswego.
One way or another, I will see you all at the Shilo on Wednesday.
 
Are we there yet???

Heres the deal.
Woodland 10am
Welches    11:30am
Madras        1:30 pm
Bend            2:30pm

We should do a cell phone list so if someone isnt where they are supposed to be we can track them down.
Steve get the #'s for anyone meeting at Welches.
Glen get the #'s for anyone meeting at Madras.

So let us know who will be where.
As far as I know Larry, Eric Bob and I will be leaving Woodland at 10am.

If I missed anything or anyone wants to add a pick up point let us know!!!!Clap
St

Hi All, The 3 maps are for connecting up. Each leg is 1 1/2 hours, give or take a bit for traffic.
If we can meet in the Thriftway in Welches at 11:30AM and leave at 11:45AM we can connect up with anyone else that can make it to the McDonald's in Madras at 1:45 - 2:00 PM. We can leave Madras around 2:15 - 2:30 and make it to the Shilo in Bend around 3:30 or so.
If anyone has a GPS, they can put these addresses in to see the route.

Hope this helps. See you all soon!
John... we are on the same times set. Good thing we talked about this at the car show.
Steve

Thriftway - 68280 E Hwy 26 Welches, OR 97067-9752
McDonald's - 28 Oak St. Madras, OR 97741-1886
Shilo Inn - 3105 O B Riley Bend, OR 97701

Sorry everyone I'm dropping out of this trip Cry  I really hate too but with everything I've got going on right now there's no way I can make the trip.  Mostly it's an expense thing.  We are trying to get our house ready to sell, we have a leak in the roof that needs to be fixed, and the entire two story house needs to be recarpeted.  But mostly the money I would spend going to Bend will do a lot of work on the Pacer before I ship it to Hawaii.  Thanks for understanding and I hope to see you all at car shows around the NW.

That's a bummer Mark.
I know you really wanted to make this trip, but you can't spend what you don't have.
If I had more time for this trip I'd swing up your way, but I need to get back home pronto.
Good luck with your home and the move.
Your friend,
Dave

Glen, you wont be traveling alone once you meet up with this crew!!!!Geek
Just make sure you have your cell # if you need to find out where you are.
And shoot Steve or myself a PM with you cell # also please. Thanks.


Steve, if we meet at 11:30 and leave at 11:15 do we leave before we meet?
I am not familiar with this system.LOL

Mark, was hoping you could still make it down for a few days anyway.
Good luck with the move to the island. Thumbs Up
