    Another year has passed and last year's calendar seemed to be helpful so might as well have another running calendar of events for the PNW riders (Or., Wa. and Id.). Lets use this for more PNW Adv Rallies, Dual Sport Events, Special Events, MC Shows, Tech Days, Public Adventure Rides etc. Pure Racing Events, and Cruiser/Bike Events seem to have their own sites, so unless its a big/interesting one lets' keep them there.

    How can you help? If its motorcycle related and interest to ADV Riders post it up to this thread and I'll add it to the first post. The only rule is there must be a link for more info. If there is a popular events/rally in nearby states/provinces that pull lots of PNW Riders feel free to add that as well (again, please include link). I'm based out of Portland, so tend to put more of those events on the calendar, so I encourage users in other areas to post your local events (Boise, Spokane, Seattle, etc.) and I'll add them as well.

    Somebody posted somewhere that the BLM will be charging camp fees year round at the Crooked River sites. Used to be no charge through the end of March.....which is precisely why we camp there on the last weekend of March each year. But fees now? I can't find info online (old links are dead) so I'm guessing info is being redone to list fees all year. I'll call Prineville BLM after the holidays to check into that and the group site that we stay at each year.

    If fees are charged, what-r-we gonna do then? I don't wanna deal with fees, so if we stay there, fees would be up to each individual.

    Or....should we go camp somewhere else this Spring Break?
    I'm open minded, might be nice to visit a new area, maybe on the John Day somwhere?
    Speak up all....where do you wanna go camp for Spring Break this year?

    That crossed my mind but, it's not so pretty up there as it is down on the river. Plus the weather protection of that Gorge......it might be nasty up there on top in late March.

    I'm still planning on Oregon Schools Spring Break time for Crooked River...
    Should we do it on March 23-26?
    ...or March 30,31 and April 1st & 2nd?
    Easter is in mid-April this year, so no conflict there.

    Barlow or Bust: Traditionally the weekend before Black Dog, which is June 3-4 for 2017.
    ...so how about May 25 -28?

    Apple Valley Rally: Last weekend in September, 27-30, or...the weekend BEFORE hunting season opens this year.
    I haven't checked hunting regs yet, does anybody know?

    No need to post em until I get links.
    BTW, Scott, it's a "Roaming Rally" notta "Rolling Rally" ...from Hood River to Big Lake.
    ...and thanks for posting it! :-)

    That's the plan, apparently there have been too many squatters staying at those sites for free but using the shitters etc and leaving messes, charging year 'round fees are a way for them (BLM) to offset costs to maintain the sites and discourage long term camping. The issue stems from the influx of out of state construction workers in their RV's, the RV parks here are full, and expensive. So much for facebook bringing jobs for the local population. :csm
    I can't remember what the fees will be.

    Thanks LadyBug and AppleJam, added those in, plus a whole lot more. Some events I only have clues about vs. actual links as it's early in the year and not all the clubs have much more than just calendars entries yet. I did find a new event up in Washington this year benefiting a veterans ride on June 10th that looks interesting.

    Remember, keep me honest, if any of you see events that you think others would enjoy just post on this thread and I'll put it on the Calendar to help get the message out. I tend to see more of the events around Portland as that is my home, but happy to link to any in the OR, WA and ID, or MAJOR ones in neighboring states and provinces.

    Anybody have any ideas for the Crooked River gig? I found that they do have some group campsites, but only 4 vehicles allowed, so that's probably not going to work. We could just go anyways, but expect that there would be camping fees for everybody, don't know prices, but expect $20 or so a night per "site". EFR would be ideal, but that's pretty early for end of March.

    Hey....What about Roberts Bay CG down by the CR reservoir?
    You know, at the end of Salt Creek Rd, just past the turnoff to the famous "doubtful Dirt" road.....

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/R...372c31fd28d10!8m2!3d44.1192945!4d-120.7011223

    It's free, says this site:

    https://freecampsites.net/#!4890&query=sitedetails

    It's operated by the Dam Builders, and way different than the State Park CG on the other side of the reservoir. I've ridden through that CG area there, it seems appropriate for all of us and they have a vault toilet or two. I don't remember seeing fee boxes, but was not paying attention at the time. It looks like it was a makeshift OHV / dispersed camping area at one point that was 'reclaimed' into less disorganized CG. Now OHV's are not allowed, but all of our trucks and street legal bikes are fine!

    Itsa long & fast, but deep gravel road going into the reservoir, but not rough at all as I remember.

    I think we rode in there last year. If so it's a pretty nice spot. It was pretty empty as well. But has a fair amount of gravel for those towing in.
