I went up to barter faire, but might be able to make it next time. It's hit and miss for me.
Personally, I'd rather pack a lunch and hit some trails.
Keep me posted.

Head north on hwy 2 take a left at the 211 and head up to Usk. Across the river to the east and north are some fun places we like to explore. An old ghost town called Diamond City shows up on google maps and theres some nice camp spots around there. Also the CDA national forest is great once the snow melts.
Not sure where is actually accessible under current circumstances.

Not sure if you saw this, but we are actually doing calls every Sunday night @7:30 PST

Welcome to all our new members!
I just wanted everyone to know that up here in the Northwest region we have been doing weekly conference calls during these Covid-19 times that we can not get together as much as we would like.

I'd like to personally invite all of you to this week's call that happens to be geared towards getting started in Overlanding and Answering questions for new members/Overlanders. Rally point details

It's question and answer time.
We know there are lots of new members out there and bunches of members that are just getting started.
Let's answer some questions.

We would like to have questions submitted ahead of time so we can dive right in then I'm sure you can ask questions during the call too.
Send questions to @Big G .

We look forward to taking with everyone Sunday night 7:30 PST.

Welcome aboard man. Like @chuckoverland said north of town there's some great places and the CDA forest is a favorite of mine. The best part about these places is they are beautiful easily accessed and there's tons of great camping.

Good to know! I think we are going to take a short day trip this weekend up to the Colville national forest. Hopefully can make it over to CDA forest soon.
