Hey NW guys. I've been getting PM messages from a few of you in the Portland/Vancouver area about getting together soon. It's probably best to plan a couple weeks out, but I know there are a few of you who wouldn't mind killing a :beer: this weekend. I was thinking that Portland Brewing in the NW Industrial area would be semi accessable for everyone.

XL715, Valentine, Squeezer, Pokemon, Semlin, Firetruck41, floatinghat?? TomH & Phaedrus might be a bit too far away for a small get together like this. Hell, Pokemon... you might be iced in anyway! But ALL/ANY Cruisers are welcome. Rogue, Beo, C-Dan, Riley, landtank, anyone, even Junk... you guys are welcome to show up too :flipoff2: We may not have sunshine here, but we damn well have some good microbrews.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm :beer:

If anybody's up for it this weekend, lets head over there. We can always plan another meeting a few weeks down the road.

Reply to this msg if it'll work for ya. I was thinking maybe Saturday 3:00. Ideas????

I'd like to make it but that's a long way, short notice. I'd be in sometime in the spring once the sking & soccer season has ended.

Hey Brad - is the gal in your avator going to be there?

Here's a copy/paste from my reply on the other thread...didn't see this before I posted....

It would have to be sunday for me. I'm scheduled for overtime on Sat With construction going so slow lately, I can't pass it up.... I could do it a little later on sat though, (5:00 or so).

Later,
Nick

I'm in, but where is that place? I'm shouldn't be so lazy and look it up in the book, but I figured directions from a fellow couv dweller would be easier. Just let me know if it IS going to be SAT, or if you want to try SUN for valentine, plus it's supposed to be kinda sunny on SUN, give me a chance to wash the beast!! I want it to look pretty.

Can't do it this weekend as we already made plans. I'd be in for next time though.

Hmmmm.....

Last year I drove from Vancouver, Wa to Lake Canandaigua with a buddy for a car event. The first day we drove about 14 hours and made it to SLC Utah. Yahoo says 27hrs 6min, but you're blown..... so I'm guessing you could be here from NM in about 22. Haul ass, it'll be fun. Just look at the weather you're missing. Here's a shot out the garage door.

Winter wonderland....
