Jason - As mentioned, we had a great time with OSU fans in Madison last fall and it was with their encouragement that we got our group together for this fall. We're really looking forward to it. I just read elsewhere that you now have a number of tickets for the game. Thanks for your help in getting them. How do we go about getting them? Where are they located? Any further details on the tailgate? Sorry if the information is already available. The excitement is brewing! Speaking of brewing, I think I'll have another.

If I were making a rare trip to Oregon, I would seriously consider this trip.These two companies have pretty good reputations:
http://www.tradewindscharters.com/whale.htmlI've seen orcas up close to our boat and the size of those things will set you back in your seat so you can imagine what a gray whale will do to your psyche!A note about Crater Lake, it is outstanding... if you can get there. It is literally on a mountain so check last minute weather conditions and road closures. I've been stifled twice when planning a Crater Lake trip due to fast changing weather conditions. Also, make the short side trip to "The Pinnacles".

We are making a week of it and spending a few nights in Astoria before the drive down to Newport and then to Portland after the game.
I can't wait for the local beer and hopefully some naked beavers.......not all that interested in fist fights though.
