Not actually a Boba Fett fantasy camp, the all-inclusive Oregon Bounty Ultimate Adventure takes you from 7,500ft up Mount Hood all the way to the Coast during four days and three nights of sipping, supping, foraging, and fishing in some of the most epic surroundings the state has to offer, while strangely leaving Mary's Club off the itinerary.
The Food: Make Louie Anderson look like Pam after massive meals including a farmers market-based dinner at Timberline's Silcox Hut commonly rocking stuff like alder-smoked brisket in a brown sugar and root beer brine, plus a wine country vino-paired feast at Dundee's Euro-tinged Farm to Fork, who're often slinging goodness like cherry/ hazelnut wild boar terrine and duck breast with wine-braised figs. And OBUA even gives you a chance to source your own meal via Garibaldi salmon and crab fishing, followed by ‘shroom-foraging with Noble Rot’s chef Leather Storrs. Yes, his name is Leather m-fing Storrs.
The Drinks: Momentarily forget about Zima with Jolly Ranchers as you hang out with master distiller Stephen McCarthy of Clear Creek while sipping eau de vie in the very orchards he sources his fruit; quaff your way through a private Full Sail brewery tour; hit the cellars for barrel tastings at Sokol Blosser and Rex Hill wineries; and do a pedicab tour of Distillery Row followed by a private cocktail class at Beaker and Flask, which explains why you can’t ever understand a word that dude is saying.
They’ll also cruelly force occasional consumption breaks on you with calorie-burning activities like a waterfall excursion, a Portland bike tour, and "ecological sightseeing", which for Boba Fett, is admiring silly nerf-herder smugglers frozen in the precious metal Carbonite.
