Please do not wait to do this because it makes it very hard when a tiny amount of folks have to foot the bill for the event's pottie rental, booze, food, camp prep, rally prep, etc etc.
Treffen 2015: Camp, Rally, and Enjoy!
Information and Details:
Thursday June 18, 2015:
Meet at Obrien, Oregon, at 2pm with full tank of gas, all your gear, water, food for the night in the woods.
Drive the easy route (graded dirt fire roads) out to the backcountry camp called "Sourdough" Distance from Obrien to this camp is about 2 hours. Folks can do this on their own if they cannot get to the group in time and need to come in later, however, please be aware that this is a backcountry location.
Bring appropriate route guidance to be sure you make the correct turns.
Camp at Sourdough, get your rest, tomorrow is a big day.
Friday June 19, 2015:
Wake at Sourdough early.
Driver's meeting at 8:15am center of camp.
Depart on the McGrew Backcountry historic Stagecoach route, Eastward back thru the rough country to O'brien.
Off-road journey time is about 6 hours. Some do it in three, some do it in 2 days. We will aim for 6. There will be lunch stop so be sure to have something packed for breakfast and for lunch on Friday.
In the afternoon: Pop back out of the trail network into village of Obrien, OR.
Go find local gas and air up tires too.
Hit the pavement for the drive up to Dai's farm for the weekend camp and party.
Arrive at the farm (Lumos Vineyard) in Philomath OR, set up camp, dinner will be provided to those as they arrive.
The farm is located at
Lumos Wine Company
Wren Vineyard / Crisp Family Farm
24000 Cardwell Hill Drive
Philomath, OR 97370
Camp out, enjoy campfire banter with your fellow G club families.
Again all these events are kid friendly.... while this is not some redneck yahoo crushed beer can fest its also not a stuck up candle lit dinner so prepare for somewhere in between and you will make out just find and meet some great folks.
Saturday June 20, 2015:
Fun at the farm and possible short driven rally up Mary's Peak, a nearby mountain, with incredible views of the volcanos....Its the highest peak in the coastal range and located very near..... please express your interest if you want to do this.
Informal tech talks and fun for kids, lots to do around the farm, or cruise into gorgeous Corvalis OR and enjoy walking around this darling river-side town.
The Saturday morning farmer's market is a favorite of many who have come to this event in the past.....highly recommended! Bring back home some incredible local varietals. There's usually fun for the kids and live music for free, along the Williamette river.
Prepare or get your own dinner.
There will be no catered Saturday night dinner this year unless someone wants to organize something???
Bonfire with the best wine in Oregon is however guaranteed!~
Camp under the stars (hopefully) in a gorgeous lawn surrounded by grapes, hills, and gorgeous river valleys that extend out to the sea.
Sunday June 21
Breakfast and morning hang out, shower up, do your thing, pack your camp.....you can stay the day and or depart should you have a long drive back home ahead of you.... see you next year!
Consider staying on, and touring the amazing local coastal areas, Oregon dunes (drive on beaches), wine country, big tree trail, or Portland and Eugene or Ashland....all fun towns.
