Oregon Trip Wrap Up

I typically plan my trips a year in advance. In this case I had been planning my trip to Oregon for more than a year. I had dreamed of a vacation traipsing through breweries, sand dunes and plotting for a new place to live, targeting Bend Oregon, a town referred to as a Brewery Boom Town. How could I not fall in love?

Well as far as planning went the trip had all its T’s crossed and I’s dotted and then April rolled around and the company I worked for, for 17 years, went out of business. I went in to conservation mode and started slashing dreams left and right.

I had paid for most of my Chicago and Oregon trips and to sound like a 5-year-old stomping my foot in a Toys-R-Us store when I didn’t get what I wanted, I was pissed I had to cut down my plans. I decided not to change anything for my Chicago trip and took out the machete and started hacking away at the Oregon trip. I still wanted to salvage some of the trip, so I canceled as much of the hotels and activities that I could without loosing too much money.

I was left with 2.5 days in Oregon. It was better than 0 days in Oregon but it did cut out Bend Oregon, visiting my Aunt and Uncle and missing a large amount of breweries. I made the best out of the trip that I could and enjoyed myself most in Astoria Oregon. So much so that I would be willing to return, which is odd for me as I do not like to return to places I have already been. There is so much to see out there in the world that I do not like to repeat.

Below is a photo recap of Boomer’s and my trip to Oregon.
