My hiking season is having a soft start with a weekend at the beach. I've rented a huge house with a bunch of beds, two living rooms, two kitchens, pool table, pingpong table, foosball table, pinball machine, a hot tub and a great ocean view.
When: April 18-20
Where: Gleneden Beach, just south of Lincoln City
What: A weekend of fun with hiking opportunities on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Cost: $60 for lodging. $20 for gas. Food money
Payment: Pay $60 to my Paypal account. Click “send to family and friends” as opposed to “pay a vendor” and there is no fee to either party.
Hours: Check in at 4 PM Friday. Check out 11 AM Sunday
Hiking: My plan is to hike on the beach Saturday and maybe drive up the coast for a hike up Neahkahnie Mountain on Sunday for those who wants to hike with me. If other leaders sign up they might offer other hikes or we can create smaller groups once we get there.
Food: My guess is that many members will arrive late on Friday so we'll see what happens that night as far as dinner goes. Saturday we'll have a big (pasta?) feed with lots of food and drinks of choice. We'll figure out breakfasts and lunches.
Sleeping arrangements: There are 13 beds. Most are queen or larger. Hopefully we'll have enough people who are OK sleeping with a different person to where we all get a bed. If not the last few might have to bring a sleeping bag and a pad. The first 14 who sign up will be guaranteed a bed.
Car pools: We'll arrange car pools from Portland. Please answer questions when you sign up and I'll help arrange.
