Planning your trip!
If you will be traveling by air:
Here's what you need to know:
Closest airport is located in N. Bend.. it's only about an hour drive away but is a tiny airport and so often spendy to fly into- if you are in a western state- definitely check their rates- as they have some direct flights to large western cities that are quite affordable.
Less expensive options: Medford (MFR) is about a 3.5 -4 hour drive (very scenic though- including redwoods and a gorgeous stretch of coastline) it's a small airport but rates will be much better than N. Bend.
Eugene is about a 3 hr drive, so a little closer, airfares usually comparable to Medford. Drive is less scenic but car rentals are usually cheaper there.
Portland (PDX) is definitely cheaper.. but drive time is about 6 hours.
If you are driving:
Here are some approximate drive times:
Mt Shasta: 4hr 45min
Ashland: (about 4 depending on route)
Medford: (3.5 or 3 depending on route)
Other things to keep in mind:
People will be coming in from virtually all of these directions- so having an option for car pool or sharing a car rental (or even a hotel room in the city you fly into /out of) is highly likely. A month before the event- we will open up a private group page on fb where you can meet other attendees and arrange ride-share/etc.
Also, please reach out with any questions related to routes or travel- we are happy to help you make your plans.
