Getting There

The venue is about 10 miles from Portland International Airport (PDX). 

Arrival Sunday night, Aug. 4, is highly encouraged for an early Monday morning start to the workshop.

PDX has direct international connections to Frankfurt (Condor),  Amsterdam (Delta), Tokyo (Delta), London (BA) and others.

From the airport, McMenamin's Edgefield Lodge can be reached by public transportation (about 1 hour, two changes ) or Uber/Lyft (20 minutes, ~$30).  For common arrival times, the Workshop will try to coordinate transportation.
