    Looking at buying plane tickets this week or next from here to Portland. I'll probably need a carpool down if I do go.

    Stat, I can probably pick you (and anyone else who might be flying into PDX) up in Portland. As the date gets closer, I will know more about me schedule. If I can't Peaches can probably do it.

    I'm in Portland & schedule-wise like Rivett. 95% likely to be there. Will know closer to date & can do airport pickups & carpool.

    Mark me as a possible. I have some travel right around there, but if I'm free I'm in.

    I'm about 75% sure. I'll know for sure a few weeks before the meet.

    If I do come, I'll be flying into PDX.

    By the way, what's the agenda during the meet? Nerd gaming the whole time? :D

    We're even planning for the grandparents to keep the spawn for the weekend...Rivett and I are pretty much for sure in. Unless there is a life changing move that takes priority.

    Gonna plan on it - looks like good timing for me right now but lots of factors are always in the air.

    Probably won't stay overnight - I'm technically south of Portland proper & Eugene is a 90 minute drive to my own bed. Will have to weigh gas vs. lodging & ability to get the kid a sleepover or two.

    I have a busy summer, but I may be in.

    I'll be coming from Seattle and have space for one more in my car.

    We have a great local brewery, Ninkasi, that I have some credit at from previous dealings. I can bring a keg of whatever draft people want. My suggestion would be Total Domination, Believer Double Red, or Radiant.

    My only question is... What is there to do in Eugene? Ive only ever driven through on the way to Coos Bay?

    What are our plans? Or do we have ideas for said plans?

    I wasn't worried about "plans" with this thread. If you wish i can create a "plans" thread to show what we can do.

    Based off the NE meet up i think they went to beach for a day and BBQ.

    I just wanted a central info thread where i could gather all info of people who are planning on going.

    I'm in Portland, so would drive down. I'm a "maybe" for now, with summers being super busy with the kids. Should be fun!

    Do we really have to start a separate activity thread? I'm either lazy or a rebel.

    • Too late for the Country Fair that's close to Eugene & too early for a Trek in the Park day trip to PDX.
    • Portland has a Geek Calendar of interesting activities but haven't found anything like that for Eugene.
    • Coast is an hour-ish away & that part is very windy in summer but there are the dunes w/sandrail rides in Florence.
    • We try to stop for an amazing dinner at Ambrosia when we pass through Eugene.

    May be able to go now. Still waiting on something, stay tuned.

    I am emphasizing the word "May".
