    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.

    AWESOME !!!
    Thanks, again, Scott_PDX

    Can you have your calendar include the "Columbia Gorge Fire Aftermath Ride" with Mortimersickle nine years from last 4th of July? That is one ride I won't miss.

    @Apple Jam , you gonna toss up some dates for Crooked River and Barlow? You still accepting purview for these shindigs? Allow me to lobby for Barlow or Bust to NOT land on Memorial weekend, as it has the last two years. Hopefully I'll be back on the horse by then, but even if not, I'll camp. Cheers.

    I've been thinking about Spring Break on the Crooked River 2019 the last few days, knowing it's time to start thinking about Spring here in the midst of Winter. Traditionally, it's been around the last weekend of March, when they yoosta have free camping there, but I still like that early date before April. This year I'll set March 28-31, the last weekend of Portland school Spring Break. Any complaints? I'll start a thread very soon if not. Same place, right?

    Too early to say for Barlow or Bust, but I'm open to it not being Memorial weekend.

    Good thinking guys, I'll hold off on putting them on the calendar until there is a link I can reference, but I like what you are thinking. Pushing Crooked River back a few days might allow more to attend, though camp capacity may be an issue...one of these years.

    Yea , now We'er talking CROOKED RIVER !! . The way I look at it is that You AJ set the date and the F.F.'s who like You will come out a play with You ?. As far as having enough room I think that the people that know will come early and those there will help in making room for them who come later , if we fill the north end it's a long park and if we fill it to the end that would be a lot of people . Anyway I'm in for any date .

    Perfect, put links to events and I'll add them to the first page. You get the record for the earliest event 10 months out, but sounds like a good one. One of these days I need to get to that hill-climb as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Who else has something to add? Let's fill up this sucker this year!

    Also keep in mind I don't read through every post on every thread (though my GF doubts this), so if you see an event open to ADV riders that you'd like to share, add a post to this thread please or I will probably miss it.
