Oi! Have you been wanting to go backpacking on the coast since the moment you moved to Eugene? Maybe you're sitting on your couch watching netflix, just dreaming of that salty Pacific air in your hair and sand in your lens cap... craving a camping stove cooked meal and wet sleeping bag night's rest... well shoot dang! Will Sommer, Noah Green and Reid Priewe hear you- they're planning a two night backpacking trip to the Oregon Coast, just south of Florence. The plan is to drive two vans to two separate trailheads, 10 miles apart along the coast, before hiking to a mid point on Saturday. The north group will hike south and the south group will hike north, each about 5 miles, to Tahkenitch Campground for a group fire and camping grub. The next morning the groups will continue, in the direction they were going the previous day, to the van that awaits them before making the trip back to Eugene. Expect beautiful sites, sandy boots, wet gear and lots and lots of laughs. They really want to get two full vans out there, so sign up! The combination of weather, two nights sleeping outside and carrying packs with gear will make this trip a 6 on a 10 scale of difficulty. Come to the pre-trip and contact the initiators with any questions you might have.
