The Extended Trips Committee sponsors several multi-day outings each year.  Individual members organize the outings with the assistance of the committee, so the location, activities, lodging and food arrangements can be quite varied.  Past trips have included skiing and snowshoeing at Crater Lake and in the Wallowa Mountains, birding at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, and rafting the North Umpqua River.
