The covered bridge and ferry tour! Kickstands up at 9am. We will be crossing the Buena Vista ferry and on to several other historic covered bridges in the mid-Willamette Valley with a stop for lunch overlooking Foster Lake. After lunch we will have a scenic ride back to the start point with a stop overlooking the valley. After the ride we will meet back at the start point. We can decide on a place to go for dinner as a group. You can just do the ride or meet afterwards and just dinner and visit and decide on breakfast the next morning. This ride will be about 140 miles in length

Saturday, July 15th,
The Mary’s Peak coastal run! This will be a full day so please, Kickstands up promptly at 9am, Please make sure you are topped off with fuel in Albany before you arrive.

I'm still working on this. Hoping I can make it. Just dealing with time and money.

I'm thinking about camping at the KOA on Oakville Rd. About 9 miles from MikeyC's address. It's about $100 for the whole stay. Any thoughts on that place?

I have heard its a nice place. If your bringing an RV just park in the parking lot with the others, or just grab a bed in one that is already here. If you just have a tent pitch it in my back yard. We have options.
