There is a Northwest travel blog that you must check out. Really. In fact, you should bookmark it right now.
Terry Richard is an outdoors and travel writer for the Oregonian newspaper, and writes a regular blog called Travels with Terry. From fly-fishing to wine tasting to spa-hopping, Terry knows where the best red is, when the fish bite, and how soft your robe will be. And he posts a lot (***hangs head in shame**). The angle Terry really covers well is outdoor recreation–camping, hiking, mountain biking, cabins and anything else outdoors–but truly, all of his topics are well-researched and incredibly fun to read about.
Throughout July, Terry has been on the open road, traveling throughout Oregon on reader travel tips and reporting back on his findings. His July blog posts thus far comprise the Oregonian’s “Send Terry on the Road” summer series, which is all about involving readers (like me!) in his adventures. OK, it’s about more than that. There is a prize involved. A really big, really awesome prize.

Happy and safe Northwest travels, everyone!
