Pictures and story of the First Annual, Where are we meeting for
dinner, tour of the Oregon Cascades and High Desert
This started out as a group ride to the Chief Joseph BMW Rally in John Day,
Oregon (they just call it the Chief Joseph Rally, it's probably only been held once in
Chief Joseph, Oregon), with a night spent camping on the Cascades Lakes Highway
prior to going to the rally. We decided to have a feast, with each of us bringing some
part of the meal, and whatever means were needed to prepare it. That way no one had to
bring much, but there was expected to be a good variety, and plenty to eat. Eight of us
went on the tour, and it was so successful, that we decided to make it an annual event, in
conjunction with our attendance at the Chief Joseph Rally. Mark your calendar: we will be
holding it on the second Thursday in June from now on. Meet at L and L Market at 16th and
Willamette in Eugene, for Breakfast at 10:00, we leave promptly at 11:00, unless anyone
isn't ready, needs to go home for some item they forgot, needs to run over to the sporting
goods store to get a nifty camping item that someone else brought that looks worthwhile,
or any other excuse to delay leaving until at least noon.
