This will be a riverside hash on the beautiful Driver?s River near Reach Falls in Portland, courtesy of property-owner Robert Hew.
Apart from navigating the shallows and rapids, you will have opportunities to swim and enjoy the many lovely falls on this stretch of the river. Bring the usual Hash gear as well as swimsuits, towels, extra clothes and shoes, umbrellas (it?s Portland) and don?t forget your mosquito repellent!
