Parking will be available at the Chase Bank location on the corner of Hawthorne & State Street. We will join our friends from Carry the Load on their portion of the West Coast leg of their journey.

Much like the East Coast route, it’s hard to overstate the beauty of the West Coast journey passing through the gorgeous architecture within the University of Oregon; the monumental mountains of Burney, CA; the vines of Napa; the Golden Gate Bridge; the flash of Hollywood; the lights of Vegas; the painted desert of Arizona; and the white sands of New Mexico before its final 13-day stretch through West and South Texas.
