This is a test of the Map. (There has got to be a better way....)

Re: Southern Oregon Scout Run Map

OK, there is the basic map of the run for people starting from the I-5 Corridor.

At some point, I will figure out how to post a picture straight to the thread, skipping the thumbnail step.

I will post more details tonight to give more of an overview of the trip. Remember, this is more toward the tour end of the spectrum, and it is not just Scouts.

I am prepared to take grief about my nephew and his built Toyota coming along, but I can take it, because I have such broad shoulders.

More later.

Re: Southern Oregon Scout Run Map

Here is the current plan for the Scouts to the Summit Run.

I will be setting up a camp on Friday the 20th within 5 miles of the Tiller Store. At this point, we will be having at least 2 kids on the trip, and I will be trying to talk some of my girls into going.

I would like to meet at the Tiller Store at 9:00 AM on Saturday. Tiller is about 40 minutes east of I-5 at Canyonville on HWY 227. You will not be able to miss the Tiller Store. I recommend getting gas at Canyonville. If anyone needs directions to camp for friday night, let me know.

We will meet at the Tiller Store and head out to the run heading roward the Rogue Umpqua Divide. This is a primarily a tour. We will go over the divide to the Rogue side and find a camping location for Saturday night. There are plenty of campgrounds available, and I am not concerned about vacancies or reservations.

I think we will be flexible as far as activities for Sunday. The nice thing about this location is good highway access for everyone going home. I would like to plan on Crater Lake as a possiblity on Saturday for sunset, or on Sunday morning.

Gas food and lodging is within range at any time, but I am planning on bringing food.

As always, you can post a reply here on send me an e-mail at scottsinner@yahoo.com if you have questions.

By the way, if anyone is interested in a Southern Oregon Scouts tee shirt for a nominal fee, let me know.

Thanks

Scott

Re: Southern Oregon Scout Run Map

Scott, That all sounds good to me. I think Colin and I will be down late friday, as I have been requested to be at work that whole week.

I would purchase a t-shirt, size XXL-T(tall) or XXXL. I prefer the tall if available :)

Do you have a place picked out yet for fridays camp?

Crater Lake for Sunday sounds great.

Re: Southern Oregon Scout Run Map

Phil,

I will come up with the tee shirt.

Trevor is going to the area this weekend to find a spot to camp. I will keep you posted. I expect to be within 5 miles of Tiller.

Look forward to seeing you down here again.

Found! Campsite for SOS Summit Run 5/20

Evening Y'all. Happy Mother's Day. After much exhaustive and dangerous recon (quick drive by) I discovered an acceptable campsite for those wishing to rendezvous in Tiller, Friday the evening of the 20th. It's called the 3C picnic area. It is 5 miles outside of Tiller off the right hand side of South Umpqua Highway and just 4 miles or so before the Jackson Creek turnoff, the road which begins the primary leg of our journey. Amenities include: picnic tables, fire pits, river frontage and I think it may even have a toilet, but not sure.
Also much to my surprise, the price of gas at the Tiller Market is actually slightly LESS than most anywhere in the Rogue Valley. It was $2.489 for regular, the only flavor available. I would still recommend getting gas in Canyonville for the Damn Yankees from the North and EaglePoint/Shady Cove for us Johnny Rebs down South and then top off in Tiller if you so choose.
With the amount of rainfall lately, mud should be in abundance should we decide to venture off the beaten path every now and then.
There you have it. Not much else to say except I hope to see y'all there.

Phil and I can't wait to more of the Tiller brethren. We liked what was saw so far.

Hi Scott. Mike and I have replaced the leaking oil seals on my Traveler so we are ready for a trip. What better way to use it than to join you folks this coming weekend? :) We are leaving Portland Friday afternoon about 2 PM so we can set up camp and be relaxing by sunset. We look forward to meeting you. I talked to Phil today while at IHOH and he said he really is looking forward to the trip again. I haven't been to Crater Lake for a long time and my son has never seen it in person. See you then! Our Traveler is light green with white stripes down each side.

Greg,

Good to see you're going to make it down, and thanks for cleaning up the thread.

I posted a Tee Shirt thread below, so if anyone wants a shirt, let me know.

Scott, I'm trying to resolve the description of the campsite with my USFS map. I see a picnic area called 3C Rock that seems to fit the mileage. Is that it? Is it really OK to camp at a picnic area? My map show that Jackson Creek Road is only about a mile after the picnic area. Am I correct or lost? :D :eek:
YMMV!!!
Curious minds want to know.

Greg,

I am going to let Trevor reply on the legality of the camp.

He is really a guy that don't take nutin from nobody, and anyone that may have an objection in these parts is either a first cousin or sister (and potentially both).

Hi Greg, It's the aforementioned Trever here. Let me just say that I resemble all the remarks made by Scott and then some. Review the classic film "Deliverance" if more clarification is needed. :D
Now then, to the campground sitcheeyashun. That's my gude Daze Crick booklarnin' comin' thruw. You are correct that this is technically a "Day Use Only" picnic area, but I've never been one to let a little thing like a technicality get in my way. I know for a fact people have camped there in the past unmolested. There may be one USFS employee (a former co-worker of my father's) who might decide to pay us a visit and see what we're up to. Once we explain the facts: 1. This is the only spot even approaching a decent campground within 20 miles, not to mention the location is ideal. 2. We promise to be on our best behavior and leave the area in better shape than we found it. 3. We're just here for the night and we'll be pulling out in the morning. Then for added measure, I will nonchalantly drop my father's name, a move that will most assuredly get us kicked out. If all else fails, I have no problem resorting to violent means. You'd be surprised how much cooperation one can get once one begins waving a big hand cannon around with reckless abandon. :eek:
In summary, I doubt that we will even receive a visit by any authority figure, but if we do, we won't be evicted, cited, fined, jailed etc. At the worst we may get a verbal warning. I truly think the chances of that are very slim, especially once she realizes how nice we are. We're good people, dammit! Hopefully this unnecessarily long dissertation has put all your concerns to rest. You're very welcome. It's what I do. Have a safe trip and we'll see y'all this weekend. Hope ya like banjo music! Yeehaw!

Greetings all,
I will be leaving the Junction City area at around 2:00 or 3:00 on friday. I may not make to the questionable camp site that night as my wife and two girls may be tagging along. My wife made mention of staying at the casino that night and catching up with the group on Saturday morning before you leave the camp area. Saturday we plan on camping where the fun might be. I assume adult oriented beverages are allowed and not frowned upon. I'll be in a 1972 Scout (orange with white top and black rockerpanels)

See you all there!

Trevor, your long post is most assuring :D :eek: .Your post brought a smile to my face and my co-worker's also.Thanks for the quick response.

John, near the top of this thread Scott was planning a 9AM meeting in Tiller. If I understand what Scott is planning, people meeting in Tiller will be going right past the picnic/IHSTO/Southern Oregon Scouts camping area on the way to Jackson Creek Road. Scott is free to correct me if I am wrong, I am just a member of the tour, not the chief planner. :)

Greg,

You are right, I don't think everyone needs to be up at the crack of 9:00, but I will and be at the Tiller store.

I have asked John to bring a chain saw in case we need to do some clearing along the way. If we had another chain saw, it might be good to have along.
I would like to think we would be providing a public service if we have to remove some windfalls.

My daughter went to Crater Lake on Monday and they got snowed on...


My opinion on drinking is moderation, there will be kids along, I mean we don't want to see people speaking Klingon or something.

Scott.

Just exactly what I was thinking on the alcohol. I didnt want to see or be drooling drunk. Just didnt know if anybody w/ kids along just didnt want them exposed to someone having a beer. I just thought I would clarify the issue as some of my friends prefer their kid to not be around that type of thing.
On gas: I only have a 19 gallon tank and two five gallon cans. will I need more to travel with? I know my mileage SUCKS.
The weather report I saw on the news last night looked OK, but it was a portland station.
By the way I'll buy a shirt (XL please)
Now I have to finish rounding up the rest of my junk. Hope I can find everything, it was elk season last I saw any of it.

As far as gas goes, I would top off the tank in Canyonville if coming from that side. Trevor said gas was cheaper in Tiller, but if they arn't open, it may not be a great deal.
