North Willamette Valleyers, Can I stay on your lawn for a night?

Hello, I live in Eugene and I am about to set off on a tour up to the gorge, out of Oregon through Hell's Canyon, through Idaho and Montana, try to get up to Icefields, then head west and take the coast down. I am planning on taking the Willamette Valley bike route but there is no camping for the 127 miles. I was just wondering if anyone around that area could help me out. By the way.. I am leaving tomorrow

Here's a two-fer:

1) If you make it up to the Portland area (probably on the third day?), I'm in Camas, WA. (20 miles from downtown Portland.)

2) My wife and I did this exact same tour a couple of years ago. We can give you pointers, or at least re-live it

PM me if I can help.

There are some people hosting in that area on Warm Showers, I'd try that.
