The Northwest Scouts are a band of brothers tied to one belief “Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit.” – Edward Abbey

We all live and work in Portland, Oregon and look for any reason to escape into the wild on the weekends. Quick trips to the urban Smith & Bybee lake are common, along with paddles out at Sauvie Island.

Spring and summer opens up our backyard to the gorgeous Mt. Hood lakes, with favorite camp hideouts like Lost Lake and Meditation Point.

There has been a rumor of paddling the Columbia from Portland to Astoria in February for the Fisher Poets Gathering, but so far only Greg has enough beard to stay warm.
