yeah but you can make it as easy / hard as you want. there's all sorts of good stuff up there.
although fishy's suggestion sounds pretty good!

The trask is not to far from Portland

Camp-out

Not sure what you have in mind. Have you ever camped at Browns Camp? R.V., motorcycle or however you want. Hiking trails for on foot , gravel roads or trails for the bikes. Large campground , always fun.

Anyone up for a weather-dependent ride tomorrow (Sunday), meet at 10 am? I'd like to get out as long as it's not pouring down rain. E, wanna get that Husky out again?

My bike better be sold by tomorrow... and it's on eBay... so I should probably pass.

Maybe I can borrow an XT225...

I could do a street ride, but I can't stay out too long. I guess I missed today's street ride. Where'd you go?

I think we will get hit with a shower or two tomorrow, not making a street ride as fun. I went for a spin this afternoon as weather radar predicted dryness -- it was. I'd rather go off pavement tomorrow. scout18, what where do you want to ride? I could do Scappoose again ... or something new.

On Pavement?

Alrighty. It is Sunday morning, and the forecast is for NO RAIN in the PDX area. You know you can't pass this up. If there are no takers for off pavement riding, I could be talked into a street ride. Ten AM meet.

'twas a great, dry day for an on-pavement ride. No pics. Did breakfast at Mock Crest Tavern on Lombard, owned by old friends of mine. Ended up NW of Vancouver ... then east of Portland ... and back home to NW Portland. Followed two guys on I-5 north and then over Fremont Bridge. Stopped for a word and nod at the light at Vaughn and NW 23rd. They were on a white GS and a yellow BMW 800, I think. You guys on here?

Sunday afternoon ride

A ride is happening Sunday afternoon, and currently the weather forecast calls for no rain. It will be off-pavement, into the hills west of Scappoose. Meet at noon, NW Industrial -- Starbucks at NW Yeon and 29th (Grand Central is a bit convoluted to find). Post up or PM if you plan to join.
