Rally in the Gorge

Who else will be there?  I'll be (gasp) trailering the 14 as I will also be bringing the KLR.  I plan to do both sides of the fence, a little DS stuff and of course, the Maryhill Loop ;D

I'll be easy to find, just look for the PSSOR banner, I won't be far away, well, other than when I'm out riding 8)  I'll also be conducting a little dual sport training on the second, just look for the dirty, smiling riders, I'll be the guy on the Sandammit KLR.

Jay, what say ya???

Had the same question but apparently it is somewhere along the Columbia river in OR or WA.

You thinking about going? I could only do a short weekend trip up there cause I am leaving the week after that for a long ride, Yellowstone, Glacier, Silverwood, and whatever else I can find the rest of the month.

Not sure, maybe...  :-\
 
But if I do go it would probably just for Saturday during the day.
 
I'm soooo jealous of your upcoming trip bro, sounds great! Mama's going with ya too right? Anyone else or just you 2?

We'll have a mini compound located fairly close to the fire pit, we will be doing mini seminar/training during the evenings as folks make requests.  I'll be in that cavernous Redverdz green tent, complete with chairs, light, ice, beer, coke, and crown!  Just look for the vastly fastest Silverdammit C14 and the mind boggeling tractor like torqiness of the KLR.  We'll aslo have a Vstrom, Dr400, and a smattering of beamers at the site.  If you hear a Kaw bell clanging it's me, warding off all the trail gremlins and inviting riders to come for a chat 8)  We will have a fairly good sized canopy up and we will have the PSSOR banner hanging proudly.  Swing on by, it really isn't that far from your place, and if you sign up for the MHL (MaryHill Loop) you won't be sorry.  See if we can turn 2k on your bike ;D  Days are usually spent either on the road or trail, I do know we will doing a trail primer class (the 2nd of Aug) from 9-12 and then a led trail ride from 1-3ish.  Did you see the list of guest speakers?  David Hough and many others.  So much more than just a ride and drink event.  They aslo have a poker run, Friday I believe.  Make the time, it will be a blast and who knows, I may even convert ya to a part time dirt rider, see places never seen from a street machine and a group of folks who think getting dirty is required ;)

Try for an evening, I'll have the crown and coke on standby ;D  Bring a bag and pad, tent is quite cavernous.
Invite goes to anyone in the area, we could call it a non COG connie owner unsponsored by Zggtr rally/meet, ride and drink get together at the Gorge ;D

I'm sure I'll be wandering over there at some point(s) during the event.  It's really hard to justify signing up and spending the money when I can take a 15 minute ride from there and be home (comfy bed, shower, fresh clothes, no packing / unpacking of stuff).  :P

Almost any road heading north from the Gorge in that area is an awesome ride, especially once you get east of Bingen / White Salmon.

Jay, we should plan a day ride over there.  I know most of those roads, and now that all the release compound is scuffed off my tires, I'm safe for corning.  ;D

Sounds like fun Rob, but unfortunatley it looks like I won't be able to make it afterall...  :(
 
I was thinking of going on Saturday, but Gumbi reminded me that on Saturday is one of our good freinds "ball-n-call" tournament, he does it every year and I can't miss it. The day starts with 18 holes of golf, then off to bowling, then finishes with a Texas hold tournament. It's alot of fun and food and drink through out, about 30+ people play so there's alot of $$ to be won for the events.
 
Sorry guys, have fun!  :chugbeer:
