4 weeks in OregonPosted by |
So…Where’s Jay Today?
A16's full-time Van Life Ambassador and part-time Design Aficionado, Jay Golien, has embarked on a four-week Road Trip through Oregon.
To work remotely – as though he were sitting right here in our office – while exploring new places, photographing strange landscapes and meeting weird / interesting people.
If things get too weird, he can just drive off! Check back often for his latest adventure.
:: So… here we go again! The 6 week van-life trial of working from the road was a success, so I'm off again – this time to explore Oregon for 4 weeks.
This tour is all about mountain biking, hiking, fishing and becoming a bear whisperer. Enjoying the wild Oregon coast and growing my chin whiskers in the forest.
My plan is to drive Oregon’s PCH North to the Washington border. Turn East and check out Portland and Hood River. Head South to visit Crater Lake National Park. Maybe Mt. Shasta on my way back to San Diego.
You know the drill, take notes there might be an quiz for later!

This trip was magical, four weeks exploring the Oregon Coast! All of the beauty of Big Sur, CA with cheap camping in the Oregon State Parks.
Every day there was a new place to explore. Hiking and Biking the trails, visiting the Columbia River Gorge and Mt. Hood. Go explore the Oregon Coast, it’s a wild & wooly adventure!
Until next time, see ya out there!
