Get Fired Up for the Oregon Coast!

Mount Hood hikers will need to refill water from
local sources along that hike.  Coach is 
recommending the SAWYER MINI water filter.

Coach Gunn's son Jake lives in Oregon,
is an avid hiker and runner and has provided
great assist with Coach's many set up trips
to find the best of the best trails to hike and locations
to visit.  He sent this video to his Dad.


"An awesome video I found of the Oregon Coast.
It was amazing to see how many of the places
that we have gone together were in there,
including that restaurant called Redfish
that Dad stopped at to use the restroom!"

"This is two days longer than our traditional Grand Canyon trip. I am soliciting competitive hotel, ground transportation and airline bids now. This will be an awesome trip! 

We will fly into Portland and will fly out of Seattle. Highlights include three wonderful hikes in the Columbia River/Mt. Hood area, a spectacular Oregon coastal hike, a super rain forest hike, two beautiful Olympic Peninsula hikes, a scenic hike at Mt. Rainier, and two urban adventure hikes in Olympia and Seattle. More details later."
