I am going. It will be the 1-year anniversary of me receiving my Leader Dog Hope, and she will be ready for a major Buffett adventure that involves flying.

I'll be there! Live in Everett, WA so heading up to Vancouver first then down to Eugene to make a weekend of it! Anyone in the Eugene area have a heads up on a tailgate or pre-funk location? Is the Portland Parrothead club planning anything? I assume they're the 'local' club?

I think the Portland PHC is the club that serves the Eugene area from what I figured out from the PHIP web site. I am considering writing the club a letter to enquire about preconcert festivities.

Thinking about it. But, when I look for tickets through the arenas' site, hardly any. Look on Stubhub, almost the whole arena is for sale. That drives me nuts.

That means they'll be wicked cheap come show time. Just wait it out.

My wife and I are coming from Boise for the concert, then on to the coast. Haven't seen Jimmy since 2012 here in Boise. Serious withdrawals.

Anyone know what the word on the street is for RV parking (and pre-concert party) the day of the concert? Know if they allow overnight camping?

Thanks! See everyone there.

I have not heard a thing about preconcert tailgating. My guide dog Hope and I will be flying into Eugene on October 12. I will be staying at the Laquinta In which is about a 7-minute drive from the arena. Normally, I get together with folks before the concert or the night before the concert, but unless things change in the next few weeks I will be winging this show on my own. I'm a little nervous, but I can do this.

Thank you for this information. I am going to post this, and I hope for the best. I will be coming To Eugene with my guide dog Hope. I will be staying at the La Quinta Inn and Suites at: 155 Day Island Rd
Eugene, OR 97401. I am most concerned about transportation to and from the show. The La Quinta is 7 minutes away from the venue so I am told. I would love to go to the preconcert party as well if possible. My guide dog will not be going to the preconcert festivities or concert. If any one can help me with transportation, please PM me. Any help will be deeply appreciated.

The wife and I decided we are taking the kids to this one! The only problem is the price of tix! Tons on Stubhub and such, but way too spendy.

IDMtnBiker, check your PMs and thank you! In 1 week I will be on my way to Eugene being escorted by my guide dog Hope. This week has been such a crappy week with the senseless violence in Las Vegas, and tom Petty's passing has thrown me for a loop as I am a PettyHead. I have beads, leis, and a special hat that I wear to Buffett shows, but at this show I will include a piece of Tom Petty memorabilia to honor Mr. Petty.
