Continuing on thinking outside the boy’s trip pattern, I once again chose a trip that was outside conventional TGT thinking. The theme – Dude Ranch. After researching ranches from Arizona, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming I settled on Tumbling River Ranch in Grant, Colorado. The crew consisted of; Jof, Rob, Bob, Ian, Adam, Jeff, Jeff, Keith […]
The plan for TGT 2019 in Bend Oregon was to fish a lot and golf at least 3 times.
Surfing, Fishing, Golfing, Baseball, Basketball, BBQ & Brews…sounds like Heaven!

Bend, OR 2012 was unique in many ways with road trip/flights, illness, activities, the old and new crew, etc. It all started with a road rally to Medford, OR and Epic Ink Tattoo shop where Mark Kidd (aka KRO) hosted a private “tat for charity” party for […]
