Everyone be safe heading up! We have a group headed up from Salem- FRS 6, CB ch 20, and 146.460 for amateur radio. Vancouver/PDX meeting location around 9:00ish at Gee Creek rest stop. Final stop- Longview Wilco Farm Store with departure not long after at 9:30ish (I didn’t plan!! LOL) Feel free to join us along the way or give a yell if you need help! See everyone there! -KZ
Give a yell on 146.460 when you get close. I'm up on Chumstick Mt and should be back in town around 1:30

We would like to apologize if our camp kept anyone awake, however we won’t apologize for enjoying each other’s company so much that we didn’t want our time together to end. Thank you to everyone who came by, shook our hands, hugged our necks and who promised to make plans to see each other again before the next rally- what an event! Please come find us on Facebook- Willamette Valley Overland Bound and get out there with us!

4 AM is when the light is enough to warrant going to bed lol! I think we were the last ones awake.

That is ok because no one was having to tell us to get out either! Our space was clean, recycling sorted, strangers nourished, new friends made and everyone made it “home” safely from our place!

Well, we are back home safe and I gotta say that we really enjoyed being able to represent Overland Bound at NWOR and meet so many incredible people. I will admit that there was some frustration with not having enough space for all of the Overland Bound members to camp together, but that frustration was tempered with the realization that there were 98 members who stopped by the Overland Bound booth... so we would have needed a lot of space! I already have plans for how we can handle it better next year and make the experience even better.

The greatest part of it was helping to spread the word of how amazing this community is and bringing other people into our family. I tried to make rounds this morning to thank those that hadn't packed up and left yet. So if I missed you or you were in a different section, let say, THANK YOU for coming out, stopping by, and being the kind of people I am proud to represent.

I do want to share one great piece of feedback from the field organizer, Brian. He went out of his way to express to me how much the NWOR staff loved having Overland Bound there because every member keeps their area so clean and is so polite. With over 2,000 attendees, it says a lot that you all, our members, stand out as the cream of the crop.

JohnO, glad it worked out.

There was a dad and four kids parked next to me. They were from Utah and had the slick pop up rack on their trailer. Does anyone remember his name or Forum handle? I forgot it and would like to get in touch with him.

It was great meeting and visiting with everyone. Looking forward to next year.
