Ok boyz… It’s time to announce the trip for 2019. I have been thinking about this ever since I was granted the privilege of being the 2019 Honored Mate (thanks Bobbie).
The way I figure it, there are 3 things I most enjoy doing with my buddies:
- Drinking good beer
There is one place that I can think of that takes care of all those things. I know we like to visit a variety of places, but we are going to go to a place that we have already been. We are going back to Bend, Oregon. Some of us didn’t get to enjoy our last trip as much as we wanted (thanks Sede).

I figured we would go in late May or early June, 2019, just like our last trip to So Cal. By the way, great trip, Bob, tons of fun… That time of year will be great because the rivers will be open to fishing, the snow will be nearly gone (may even get a little skiing in!) so we can golf, and the beer is always there.
My plan is to get a house close to town so we can walk to some of our favorite watering holes. We will set up fishing guides or just go on our own. There are many great golf courses near Bend so we can play at least three times while we are there. For those who don”t want to golf (Jof, Wyatt) I’m sure you freaks can go mountain biking.
I would like to get a head count of everyone that is in so I can get the proper size house to sleep us all. Nuby, we really want you to make it this year. It’s been too long.
If there are dates that work better for you guys let me know. I know Erik is going to graduate this June so I do need to coordinate around that as well.
This is going to be a great trip. Close to many, easy to reach and relatively inexpensive. I am hoping for a great turn out.
Your HM for 2019,
