Zigzag might not make you think of the unincorporated community in Clackamas County, but it is the third search result (for me*) after the “premium quality roll-your-own cigarette products” and the Wikipedia page for “a pattern made up of small corners at variable angles”. For no reason at all I joined five other fine gentlemen for a weekend in Zigzag.

Group shot

We spent the weekend soaking in a hot tub, making raw ranch from a Hot Knives recipe, chopping wood, and drinking whiskey (there was a short break to go on a hike, and some of the boys went snowboarding).

Jus' family.

The cabin was an authentic Steiner log cabin, which was built in the 1930’s by Henry Steiner, a German-born wood craftsman who built about 30 rustic cabin on the 140-acre property of Suzette Franzetti. But let’s be honest, the best part of going to a cabin was buying some new clothes from Brooks Brothers, including a flannel that is quickly becoming my favorite shirt.

Want to know more about renting great cabins in Oregon? I know you do.

*Now that Google knows everything about you and me and incorporates that into our searches it means we don’t get the same results.
