March SUV Drive
Welcome to the first SUV drive of the season! If you read about Posse drive article in the March Anzeiger you already have an idea what to expect for this SUV drive. The route is slightly different, but the key element is the same: cross the Willamette three times on three different ferries.
The start of the drive is in West Lynn and ends in Keizer. We will have a picnic at the Buena Vista Park right before crossing the river on the Buena Vista Ferry for the last leg of the tour. After the last river crossing a stop at the Keizer Bargarten Restaurant is optional depending on the COVID restrictions and group vaccination status.
The drive statistics:
- 4 legs, 3 rest stops, 3 ferries
- Total distance: 122 (plus return from Keizer)
- Total Drive Time: 4hrs 25 mins
- Total Time with rest stops and ferries: 5hrs 40 mins (15 mins/rest stop, 10 mins/ferry)
