Inspired by thedguy's gayness thread I propose a FinalGear meet up in Portland. I'm thinking Springish, earliest being the second weekend of April.

I propose Viper's spacious abode as the location of the meet. :p

I'm down, assuming I can get time off work/my car is up to the task by that time.

I might be down as well if I'm back in BC by then... Los Angeles, while on the West Coast, is too far just for a meet.

Come to think of it Vancouver to Portland isn't easily doable just for a meet either. But I do like the idea of a West Coast meet, so I would consider it.

I was gonna say "why so far north" but then if we got the Canuckistani's coming down then going anywhere interesting further south is too far.

ok I actually read your post argatoga.

Thanks for making me look like I grew up in West Hollywood and moved to Castro because "West Hollywood is just too 'don't ask, don't tell' "

Hey, actually April should be perfect for me as I have to cross the border to renew my Canadian work permit before the end of April!

Well...since I didn't even see someone had already posted about a west coast meetup...I'd be in, but Portland might be a little too far from home for me to manage right now. That's why I was hoping for something a little closer to home like Seattle or something.

175 miles is far? That drive for me is damn near 6x the distance at 1000 miles.

Portland's only about half a day from Vancouver, much less from Seattle, where are you located in WA?

Yeah, Portland is definitely doable from Vancouver. I wasn't so sure a month ago, but driving up from LA has put things into perspective for me.

I still probably wouldn't drive 1000km roundtrip just to have a meetup for two hours, but if you tack on one or two other activities then it could be worth it.

I think she's in Ferndale which is in Whatcom County, which is the county adjacent to BC.

If it takes you half a day to get to Portland from Vancouver WA you have problems. :p

(Yes I know.)

It isn't that far. I've gone from Bellingham to Kitsap in under two hours.

Portland is not that far. I could practically pick you up from Lynnwood and then drive you down to Portland without even blinking an eye

Any idea where to meet up? I haven't been to Portland before.

Shit, I just ripped out the interior of my car and was planning on doing some metal cutting in the near future.... I guess I'd better work fast... or buy a second car :D

Reminds me of when I drove my Jag for a month without any trim on my driver's side door as I waited for a part to come in. :p
