Things We Want To Do in 2012

While we were on our big coast drive the other day, Jonathan and I got to talking about some of the things we'd like to do this year. Since I was gone so much of last year, there is so much I missed out on that I am looking forward to doing with him this year!

In no particular order, here's our list (so far)...

*Go back to Crater Lake
*Go to Cape Disappointment
*Go back to this year's Little Woody Festival in Bend in August
*Go back to Hood River for the Mount Hood Cycling Classic
*Take a kayak safety class with Jonathan
*Kayak in Waldo Lake
*Go back to the Cape Meares Lighthouse and giant octopus tree again
*Junction City's ScandiFest in August

Portland-based things to do:

*Have a drink at HUB's bike bar (conveniently located a couple blocks from where I work)
*Watch the adult soap box derby in August
*Check out the World Forestry Center

I know there are many more things that we talked about wanting to do, but this is the preliminary list. I can't wait! If any readers have any ideas for fun stuff we could do I'd love to hear them!


  1. soap box derby what what!?
    definitely do this.
    and record it for those of us that live across the country!

  2. Will do! I have actually YET to even see it myself, but my boyfriend goes every year! Last year I was in Alaska, the year before that I had to work, and the year before that I was pressure-washing and staining a co-worker's deck! But this year....I am going to do my darndest to be there! ;o)
