Re: OMG STEP Ticket Registration

A voided ticket for various reasons would go back into STEP. There are plenty of reasons it could happen. Not saying it will but I’ll take any available options at this point.

OMG STEP Ticket Registration

Hopefully everyone remembered to register for the OMG STEP option at noon today. It is a different tier ticket with different pricing so you have to go through the OMG STEP registration process.

Re: Two random PacNW questions

We left a rest stop north of Eugene at 6am on about 2.5 hours of sleep last year and made it to Gate Road at 5. I’m hoping to flip that this year and do the bulk of the driving on day one. It is about 30 miles different to use the Yakima route from what google maps shows. When I pulled it up yesterd...

Two random PacNW questions

Anyone from Seattle do the drive east to avoid Portland? Last year we had a late start so the traffic heading south wasn’t so bad but we will be leaving Seattle area at 3pm on Thursday and figure hitting Portland around 6 is bad. How are the roads heads south out of Yakima? I’m hoping. To get to Kla...

Re: BRC on a motorcycle

I’m a bit jealous but I’d have no problem with someone cruising by me slowly on a bike in exodus. If you can make it to cedarville the north route is awesome. It would be a blast on a bike.

Re: If you are driving from the Pacific Northwest free staying at EaglesNest RV Park

Thanks for the continued offer of this. We had hoped to make it down last year but had a delay in our departure so didn't make it that far. This year that delay shouldn't exist so we'll be shooting to make our pit stop at EaglesNest.

Pedro, I've worn braid extensions for years. For itchy scalp relief: tee tree oil in a spritzer bottle is magical.
Thanks, I was thinking something like this would work. I assume she should spray it on the "exposed" areas of the scalp.

First year she ended up with a rats nest (well not that bad, but yeah it was a wreck). Last year she had cornrows braided with extensions and it was so much better. The only thing she ...

This is always done with friends who didn't get a ticket through the main sale channel. ...
