I am interested in this trip (any of the dates). I am wondering if anyone is driving from the Eugene area to Florence--I will be flying into the Eugene airport. I am looking for a ride and will share costs. My email is tmlubbers@comcast.net

I'm doing this trip beginning July 28. I will arrive at the Portland airport at 12:30 pm on July 28. I will be picking up a rental car and would love to have company and some help with the cost for the ride to Florence, OR. I could pick people up at the airport in Eugene on the way to Florence. I can also transport people to the airport in Eugene (or Portland) on Aug. 2 when the trip ends for a minimum fee. My email is wlmeck@hotmail.com.

Know that this trip is organized by coastal journeys unlimited and not really organized by road scholar.
Linda Apr 10, 2015 at 07:26 PM

is that a problem? have you been on this trip? what is the group size?
Linda Bjork Apr 10, 2015 at 08:47 PM

Yes, it was very boring and the tour operator was not educationally oriented. There were no evening activities, excpet to go to the casino. We had no car - so I chose to just watch TV. The hotel was terrible. Without a car we felt stranded. It was the worst vacation I've ever been on. We will not go on another trip with Road Scholar.

I'm going on this trip beginning 7/7/13 and will be driving from Medford, OR on 7/7/13 to Coos Bay. If anyone needs a ride, I'm happy to connect with you and see what we can work out.

I am thinking about going on this trip and would love
to have a companion on the ride from Portland. Are you
interested in touring Portland also?

Krishna Samantrai Jul 16, 2012 at 10:25 AM

Is anybody in this program (Aug.19-24) driving from Portland? I am looking for a ride and would be glad to share the cost.
