2 hour Road trip from Medford OregonJared Hokanson - Medford Oregon Realtorwww.jaredhokanson.com Its not every weekend that one gets the chance to go river rafting down the Klamath River, just a short two hour drive from Medford, Oregon to Happy Camp, California.  That was the plan for 26 Boy Scouts and 9 leaders today.  We had it all set up with rafts from SOU Outdoor Program and all of the transportation.  We spent two nights beforehand at the Dillon Creek Campground, which is a beautiful campground on the warm creek with is great for swimming with its warm pools and pretty mild current.  We saw families there with young children, and yet the Scouts from age 14-18 found plenty to do there as well.After getting to our pretermined launch site about 13.5 miles north of Happy Camp on Satu...

What is the real estate market like right now in East Medford, Jackson County Oregon?Now that school is out and the 4th of July is over...we get ready to enter one of the historically busiest real estate sales months of the year.  For those that are buying or selling a house the timing is perfect to be able to close escrow right before school starts up, and get the kids started in their schools just in time for the beginning of the new year. Homes are continuing to be bought and sold in East Medford and 2007 should prove to be one of the top 5 years in total sales.  The big difference this year compared to other years is that buyers have a lot to choose from and sellers are pricing their homes just right and staging them to appeal to the widest audience at the most competitive prices.  ...

Trinity Lakes - An overnight trip from Medford OregonJared Hokanson - Realtor Medford Oregonwww.jaredhokanson.com  My family and I just got back from a place we'd never been, Trinity Lakes California.  We were all set to go to Lake Shasta, a short 2 1/2 hour drive from Medford, but a friend of ours, a local Boy Scout Scoutmaster said, if you're thinking of going to Shasta, you really ought to consider going to Trinity Lakes.  He went on to say, its just like Lake Shasta, but without all of the crowds, and boy was he right, not to mention, a little cooler.  It was supposed to hit 113 degrees on July 4th at Lake Shasta, only hit 105 at Trinity Lakes.  The Lake was a lot lower than previous years due to the drought conditions the locals said, however, we made the most of it.  We found a "b...
