I agree with Lars except for the two priority areas that I mentioned.
In the Portland and Eugene area there are enough observers to run multiple counts (Eugene gets over 100 field observers) but a “field trip” from Portland to McNary would be more useful in terms of data.
Five extra observers makes a huge difference in many more isolated counts. It makes no difference in Eugene, Corvallis, Salem, Medford or Portland. That’s why I rarely attend my home count in Eugene.

Give someone a ride this year to an out of town count who doesn't have a car or needs to share their car . Better still, give someone a ride who's too young to have a driver's license, but highly qualified to be a team leader. This really does bake a bigger pie. Lars
