    Looks like were on for a change of venues for 2011 PNWetFest.

    :deal

    The last few years have been great - being held on the Columbia River, a bit east of Astoria - in Skamakowa, WA.

    The campground was fantastic, but after goint to WARPED and WestFest last year, I was thinking of looking for a change that expanded on riding opportunities - ALL types of riding opportunities.

    I started a thread in PNW Regionals, and it got batted around a bit.

    What seemed to be important:

    - Privacy (noise can be a problem at times :lol3 )
    - Good road riding (not everyone rides like Hayduke)
    - Good gravel roads - suitable but interesting for big bikes
    - Killer OHV areas (to lure the dirtybike riders)
    - Camping - ability to have some room to camp away from the roar
    - Hotels - Mortimersickle needs a place nearby to sleep
    - Amenities - nearby fuel and groceries, etc.

    The Father of WetFest was a gathering of idiots near the coast in NW Oregon. As it evolved, the spirit was meant to be preserved - informal gathering of like minded folks looking to get together and ride. And maybe enjoy an adult beverage or 14. There was no catering, and things were loosely organized to unorganized. Some people bring food to pitch in for pot-lucks, and others went to local restaurants. It was markedly casual.

    This year will be similar to earlier years, with a few changes - the location is private property (details Post #2). Per the property owner, there will be a per person fee to cover utilities, etc. For those wondering, the fee will be less than 2 nights of camping at the previous location. I have found a printer that will do shirts and (I think) stickers - and the host will be providing the artwork. Shirts/stickers will be optional, and be paid before the order is placed. The only other fee that may be required will be to cover for the likely need for a few porta potties.

    This will be epic. :deal

    On with the show.

    :freaky

    "But where will this most bitchin' gig he held!?!?!?"

    One of several locations that got kicked around pretty seriously was Bend, Oregon.

    It had all the riding needs covered in spades, but the problem was locating a venue that we could use.

    And then the clouds of confusion and discomfort parted.............

    I'll use this space to link ride info, OHV areas (and OHV requirements for Oregon), and link to subsequent posts with route/destination ideas, etc.

    EDIT: *Registration closed on Friday, September 2nd.*

    OK.

    The "IN" List.

    Your name is below if you indicated you were in, or seemed likely. If you said you wern't sure or had to wait til it got closer to know, you ain't on the list. If I got that wrong - post it up.

    Cost.

    I talked to dave on expenses, and we came up with a cost of $20 per head. If your name is red, I have not recieved registration payment. Green mean I got it. In the next day or two, I'll have the shirt order stuff up, and I'll have your ordered size next to your name when I get paid for that.

    PayPal is: vboost dot 6000rpm @ gmail dot com (remove " dot " and replace with ".")

    Please send as a personal gift so there is no fee taken out.


    IN YOUR PAYPAL message - please let me know your screen and real name. I'll have shirt info in a day or two. If you want to wait to include shirt money, indicate size and preference (i.e. if we get a women's shirt or long sleeve). PM me if you are going to be a pain in my arse and want to send me a check. :lol3

    RV's/toyhaulers.

    We have room for 5-6 RV type deals. One or two might get a power cord stretched from the house, but I make no promises on that. We have 5 confirmed for a trailer spot. One more maybe. That mean's we're full. As I understand it, other options are the nearby State Park, or a friend of wachs' that lives about 6 miles away. I doubt it will come to that.


    Here we go.

    Yeah! This is gonna be great - rode hwy 242 yesterday (just to make sure the brand new pavement on the west side was absolutely perfect) and then pealed off from my group to sample one of about a thousand routes back to the ranch.
