GTG for Nor Cal, Oregon, Northern Nevada,

Well guys.. I live in Yreka Calif.. No not Eureka.. I live on I-5 just south of Ashland Oregon... in a small old gold mining town.. About 350 or so miles north of SF.. SAC.. 350 or so miles South of Portland... 275 or so from Reno.. Get your maps out..

I can get us a good rate on an older motel.. Clean but older.. Park your car under cover in front of the room.. all rooms in a row.. Set in the room watch the car and talk to every one that drops by to see your ride.. Perhaps a BBQ... A great drive into the high country with no or very little traffic.. Lunch in the back country.. Will mark your maps for trips along the Salmon, Trinity, Klamath, Rouge, rivers.. Day trip to Crater Lake and Diamond lake..

I think it would be fun for some of us here in this area to get to meet and spend a little time looking at the cars and things..

So how you some of you like to make it here in the spring.. Perhaps April, May or June..


Ken

I have family in Grants Pass, and might be interested if I am in the area.

I say get together and meet regardless of the number.

As you know, we've had many GTG's in So. Cal., and the number of people attending has ranged from more than 2 dozen to maybe 6 guys. They're all fun. With smaller numbers, you get to sit down and really talk to each other, like over lunch or even a cup of coffee.

I've even met one or two members separately for dinner, lunch, had them over to my house, went on a picnic with one guy and his wife and kids.

It's just a great way to spend some time with others who love to talk about their cars. And you know with me, I can talk and talk and talk for hours about only two things: my dog and my Mercedes! :p

Paul - I've been wanting to join the SoCals for one of your meets, but the timing hasn't been right on the two I remember so far. I have been thinking it would be nice to meet up with you, John, David, Alon, Mike and the rest of the long-time SoCal regulars. The meets certainly sound like fun.

A NorCal/Oregon meet would also be fun - there are certainly some great spots for meeting places up here.

I would vote for a spring meet, or anytime when trout season is on. I haven't been trout fishing in years and that area of the country would seem like a great place to be doing some.

A little OT, but this is one of the best areas in the country for trout fishing! I have spent many happy (and frustrating) hours flyfishing near Yreka. The Upper Sac has huge browns and rainbows, the Trinity can get monster steelhead, and Diamond Lake has great rainbows. The Shakespeare Festival in Ashland is also a DO NOT MISS. Climbing Mt. Shasta is an experience I shall never forget, highly recommended. Hours of playtime fun for all! Oh yeah, and miles of uncrowded highway to take the old Tommassini (or Colnago) out for a spin.

I'll throw my name into the pot also...
Someone has to represent Central Oregon and the high desert...
BTW - Maybe I should do a remedial fly fishing course while we're down... You know, help those that want it to sharpen their skills a little

I am also interested. Put me on your mailing list. I have trip to Texas sometime in April, but this sounds like a fun thing.

Depending on the timing, I'd be interested. I'd just have to give a "definate maybe" for now.
This is what I tried to pull together last spring/summer, but it didn't work out. Ended up with just a half dozen of us meeting up here in washington state. It was fun, but would have liked to go to a meet where more would be there.
