The Horror!

Actually, I don't think we've decided on a place. Did I miss something? They won't make it sticky, Conn, until we have the details dialed.

Bump.

If we don't get something nailed down, I'm going to go to California that weekend.

Cool.

That sounds great, Conn. Then we can cruise up to Silverton on the back roads....

Works for me... but then I live in Portland. Our Seattle brethren may sit this one out, though. I know that last year the group did Mt St Helens; there is another park with a St Helens view just a bit north of there, called Seaquest State Park. It also has nice views of the area.

Alternatively, we could stick with Silver Falls for the Oregon folk, and have our northern neighbors suggest a GTG somewhere in the San Juans... can't you just see the line up of vintage MB's at the ferry dock?! Maybe we should just ping-pong it year by year: one year Oregon, next year Washington.

HMMM... lets see, I-5 N 700+ miles to Portland, about 15 hours.

You Washington guys got it made.

Yeah next year we can meet up in Seattle, have Clam Chowder at Ivers (as I remember it being called) take a ferry ride to Bremerton or something like that. took that ride many time when I was in the Navy back in 64. then they had the old wood Ferries that came from the San Francisco Bay crossings. dang those things use to reattle and shake coming into the slip.
