Re: Planning Hood River Trip

There are some good days in May and the crowds have yet to arrive. Just bring a good wet suit, water still pretty cool in May. I use a 5/3 and my son has a 4/3 for May, but many just go with 3/2. Cheap digs, ya nwkite.com your best bet. Water will be high and current ripping.

Re: Gorge!!!

The Columbia Gorge Hotel closed about month ago. They need an investor, bring a big check book and reopen it. Many other good places to stay. one is right on the waters edge, could walk to the Kite Beach (sandbar)
