Okay so after hearing all you guys have had to say in the other thread, I have decided to call my buddy in Portland. He has to make sure he has the capacity to house my friend (Mitch, nice guy) and I. It would be cool to know that if he doesn't work out, there are some other hospitable HBT'ers in the area that might let me sleep in their driveway and bathe on the front lawn with a hose.

I need help planning so suggestions are always welcome.

Here's the Itinerary in progress:

4-12-09: 8:00PM
Leave Hollister, CA and go.... (insert cool suggestion here, Oakland? Death?)
4-13-09: 10AM
Leave (unknown location and depending on where that is, stop at some Brewpubs on our way to Oregon)
4-13-09: Sometime later
Arrive in Grants Pass (any HBTers live there?!)
4-14-09: 10AM
Leave Grants pass and head to Portland, stoping at (suggest brewpubs here!)

The rest gets hazy, but I will be updating accordingly. I must be in Hollister, CA again Friday by 4:00PM.

HELP ME OUT GUYS! Any changes you would make?

Also, a friend from High School has a sorority in Davis, CA so we MIGHT just be stopping there on the way back. Probably well worth it.

Two things... first of all, just south of Grant's Pass on exit 86 is a joint called "Heaven on Earth" and they have the best freaking breakfasts I've ever had... and 2lb cinnamon rolls too. Second, from the little I remember of my days in Davis, those sorority houses rock! Some seriously hot chicks! Might have to pic through some bad ones though...

Don't plan, just go. You've pulled together a destination quickly, now have fun. Most of the fun is in the not knowing.


(wow, that's heavy).

Well we also encouraged him to do this so he can hook up with some nice hbt'ers on the trip...you know like you and I did?

(I just hope he doesn't nearly die after like I did.)

Can you rephrase that hook up part? It's entering territory I'd rather not tread.


(Hey, don't blame me for your almost dying.)

Hey now, what Revvy and Shecky do on their own time is their business.

I would simply like to meet up and drink homebrews, and not the kind they drank
