Have a Whiskey Canyon Porter for me then
Great place, Medford.
Know you're busy....but a couple of local trips from Medford shouldn't be missed!
Just to the east (few k's) is Jacksonville, a cute, little historic joint.
A few more k's to the east from there is Applegate, where the road tacks further east to the scenic Applegate Dam/ Reservoir with the covered McKee bridge along the way..

Another short visit with unbelievable views is Mt. Ashland.
South on the I-5 for about 20mins towards the Cali border, exit6 = Mt. Ashland, follow signs from there for about 15 mins to the Mt. Ashland ski-area.

Panoramic views galore right along the road into the NorCal coastal ranges, the Siskiyou Valley and the 14.000ft volcanic cone of Mt. Shasta which should still carry plenty of snow.





Not to forget riding the mega-whoopsies (with superb views, too!!) east from Ashland on the "Dead Indian".
Fantastic way to hit rt. 62 to/ from Crater Lake

Got to Crater Lake, 0C, plenty of snow, road open to the lake, the Hyundai Sonata handled it well. Very nice little car, smooth, quiet, on-board computer tells me we averaged 50 MPG today (imperial gallons).

Helen currently behind the wheel, cruise set on 65 MPH, locals passing us if we are standing still - 75 to 80 seems to be their zone, occasionally we see a Highway Patrol office having a word to a driver. Methinks they must been flying too low.

The Suzuki reference was to your old shopping trolley.
