If I am still near town I will stop over, even though I hate crossing the bridge to the Westside. Is there an off pavement route to Tigard LOL, wait I though this was a Portland meetup when did we annex Tigard??

So silly question if I setup a Sunday meeting instead of Saturday who would be interested? I would have a forklift available to test suspension and maybe go head down some trails after . Just asking because I work Saturday and can never make these meets

Hi Smileyshaun,

This meetup occurs on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM. I hope that works for you. I'm sure there are folks in this meet up (including myself) who would like to go on a Sunday ride. Join us and lets work out a trip.

Overland RS, I feel your pain about the bridges. I prefer the Sellwood bridge when I cross. So funny >>> "Portland Meetup when did we annex Tigard??" . Hope to see you there!

Hello Team,

Looks like we have a good size group this month. Lets meet out front, then migrate to the banquet room as a group.

Cheers,

John

I had a great time at the meetup. It was great seeing the new faces and some faces from last meetup LOL.. We had a cool line up of rigs and a trailer to look at. A few of us decided to bring our overland trailers next meetup.

- There is some talk about setting up a weekend WABDR trip in Aug.
- We also talked about a weekend day trip were we have a BBQ on the trail.
- I plan on going to the WA Kennewick Swap meet Sep 18. (Rally Point)
- Im thinking about going to the Gambler 500 HoopiexFest Sep 11-12.

Let me know if there is any interest in these events?

Cheers,

John

Hey Guys, I just discovered this forum…sorry for being late to the party!

I have enjoyed our first two meetups, and plan to attend again in September.

As we discussed, I’ll plan to bring the trailer next time. Looking forward to seeing everybody’s setup!
