Welcome to Overland Bound @orange_glo! The Portland/Vancouver area is filled with lots of active members, so meeting your neighbors and getting on the trails won't be too hard. I highly recommend heading over to our NorthWest Region forum [link] to find out more about what is going on in the area. I know that there was a little bit of a break from the monthly meetups because the previous organizer had to address some personal issues. Hopefully, someone new will step up and get the group together again. Something that may be of interest to you is to join in on the weekly Overland Bound Ham Radio Net which takes place on Friday evenings via Echolink [link]. Events are also posted on the Rally Point system [link], so you might want to check that out as well. I look forward to seeing you out there! If you need anything, feel free to hit me up on the forums: @Jedi.
