Oregon – Yakima Ultimate 3 Day Weekend Trip

Intro

Yakima – Oregon – Ultimate 3 day Weekend — April 21-29 2009

It has been quite awhile since Sub-Par got itself a new trip to broadcast. Having a kid will do that
to a website. Amanda’s overflowing inbox of spam finally paid off – she won Yakima’s Ultimate Three Day Weekend trip! Theory behind this contest is that the weekend should be 3 days long, to give all of us more time to play. I’m down.
Winners of the trip travel to Bend, Oregon, to snowboard (or ski) Mt. Bachelor, mountain bike and kayak, all on Yakima’s dime. Awesomeness. We decided to extend the trip a few days on either side of the weekend to make it more of a holiday for us. We flew into Portland, traveled the coast Oregon down to the Florence area, cut in to Eugene and then on to Bend. Yakima, in their infinite coolness, hooked Manda’s parents up with a cherry rate at the same lodge they put us up at so that they could come enjoy (and watch) their grandson while we gave ourselves bumps, bruises and scrapes.

The Devil’s Punchbowl. Mwah hah hah hah!
