    Turtlelady's hangout in Oregon.

    Turtlelady will be in Portland soon and would like to have a group hang on the weekend of the 16th-18th to get to meet the local hangers.
    That's not this coming weekend but the following one.
    Car camping or short hike is preferred.
    Since she will be staying in Portland, one of the highways running towards the coast or Mt Hood area would probably be best.

    Anyone free to come meetup with her?
    We could do a meet and greet at a local restaurant and head out from there?

    i'm pretty iffy on the hang ... although we were planning on doing saddle mountain near that time ... not sure if that would fit into people's plan? not quite car camping.

    my summer has been unusually busy, i'm normally a little more free to do quick hangs, not sure if i'll be able to make this one .... although i think i could pull off at least meeting at a restaurant, thoughts on where?

    i might avoid mt. hood because of the fire ...

    Silverlion knows of a spot in the Tillamook Forest that he thinks will be good.

    Won't be making this one going for a backpack with my gal hopefully in clear sky somewhere in the cascades. Wish me luck. And have a blast!

    Finally nestled in to the parent's pad in Beaverton. Count me in! I'm free the 17th-18th. Love to meet some local hangers and attend my first hang!

    Welcome to Portland! Are you visiting or relocating?

    I wish I could come out for the hang, but I have a soccer game for my daughter on Saturday.

    It is hot right now, hopefully the weather will cool a bit before the hang.

    Just verified it with the wife. I will be there with my son. Now to just figure out where there will be. I know of a few good spots. They'll be even better with the OHV ban! Yes! No noisy ATV's! What is the preference? By water or away from water? Stupid question, I know.
