Be great to meet the group from Hood River and ride south with them. When would you leave Hood River Apple Jam?
It's a two-day ride if 95% dirt,
....a one day ride if 50/50 country two-lane/gravel,
....or three hours on boring highway slab.

I don't care when we leave, I can plan for anything pretty easily, so whatever you've got time for.
...but my vote is...... two days of dirt up at my place Tuesday afternoon, sometime/anytime,
and we can leave Wednesday morning and get into the Rally by 5-ish Thursday evening.

Plenty of country camping space at my house, and a shower.
BBQ, campfire , and breakfast in the AM.
Seriously, I have lots of space, and all are welcome

...... I'll be very glad to show you all our local gems on the way down South to Bend.
There are many great kick-ass & unimproved, Wilderness border roads all the way there.
And one GREAT (I mean GREAT !!) pavement twisty near the end,
with a very neat volcanic observatory at it's summit.

Edit: I plan to tent camp when I get to the Rally. I'd rather spend money on my bike/gas than in any Hotel/Motel
