This is a family friendly monthly Meet-n-greet for everyone near Boise, ID that would like to join a rig-to-rig Meetup/Potluck. Pack your food, kitchens, chairs, and canopies as we'll have at least some good cooking and great socializing (with proper social distancing). We will also try to have at least one informative training session around the Overlanding Experience...

If the covid thing has settled down a bit, I'll plan on attending this one. Have to play it by ear though.
Yea, hopefully by May 16th things will, at least will be on the path to normalcy.

If lock-down's are still imposed come May 16th. I'm going to move it to a Sonic Drive-In. It would be cool to have say 20+ rigs drive up and fill half the spots, order food/drinks, and talk via CB's, Hams or GMRS (keeping social distancing). It could be a fun spectacle... I might even invite a local 4-Wheel Drive club to come as guests so we could really pack the place. It could be a good way to spread the word about OB...

Social distancing and meeting up with radios. I like it!

I don't there there was any real damage, just really shocked everyone. When it hit my home, if felt like a tidal wave. It was like the home was being smacked and pushed around. And then it hit again 3 more times before it was finished...

Nothing like an earthquake to remind us of our place in the grand scheme... Was in a large blacktop parking lot once for an earthquake, the entire blacktop surface looked like the waves on the ocean. Really weird.

Glad you guys are safe, and no one got hurt badly. I learned late last night that Salt Lake got hit with a quake late last week with a quake a little stronger than the Idaho Quake.
Stay safe, stay well,

We have postponed them until this covid situation gets resolved, so you didn't miss much of anything.

Instead of the meet-ups, we are doing a weekly conference call.

Here is the line with all the info...
