ok good info folks...
tumalo is booked solid (rv sites) for that time frame...
and naturally for the labor day week that follows,
after l.d. the bookings open up some.
hey pats i did spend 2 weeks in sisters not long after a33...
for mountain biking and so on.
the sis' koa is now 50$+ a nite,
the new owners must really like the place
but the big negative is it's still required DRIVING to go anywhere.
so i opted to stay right IN town, which is much much nicer.
u r right the forest service areas are plentiful and easy to use,
and very nice too!
will definitely be back in late august or mid september.
i really like the area and only have 99 more bike trails to try!
