Yeah, hackster, keep an eye out here for future rides. Maybe you guys can show us some tracks out in the 'mook forest someday too. I've been wanting to check out Roger's/Brown's Camp on a moto; been out there many times on a mt bike. It's probably pretty sloppy there this time of year ...

I second that motion!

Is Jones Creek (Washougal, WA) still open?

Jones Creek sounds like it closes on Friday the 20th. They have some pretty nasty trails out there. A few of us are going to head out there when they reopen.

I would be down for a Saturday ride, especially if it is early in the day. Might even get a few of the Supermoto crowd to show up with me......

I would be more than happy to show you guys around Browns camp/rogers camp area, I am just beginning to explore the Diamnond Mill area so that may be a wild goose chase!!! But I would like to see some of these Scappoosssssseee roads that you all speak of.....

You guys going to start up a new thread for Saturday?

You guys are klilling me!!! I won't make this ride as I will be up at the mtn getting some much needed work done and hopefull skiing on Sunday. I think I should get some different tires on the ol' girl so she doesn't get so active in the mud.

If you guys want, I can always edit the first post of this thread to reflect the next planned ride, and this thread can become the place to look to join an off-pavement ride in and around the Portland area. I guess if the next instigator of a ride asks me to do so, this thread might evolve into that ...

I got some work to do on my new Heep, so early or late on Saturday (and not an all-day-ride) would be good. I think we should meet-up a little earlier, 9 or 9:30 since we always seem to need a while to get on the road.

Right now it is looking like 45 and Showers for the Portland area, that means snow in the Scappoose hills...

Last time we sort of had to stay on main roads... Many of the 'trails' are mostly under water.

A lot of people with a lot of money like the TKC80s. Other than that you are looking at the DOT knobbies made by IRC\Kenda\Maxxis\ChenShin\Dunlop D606.
