Moving to the Portland area

Just wanted to say hey. My wife and I are moving from the Washington DC area to Gresham (she's active duty Coast Guard and has orders). We're both looking forward to getting to test out our new Rubicon on some trails and to just hang out with other Jeep owners.

We'll be out there around the 4th of July. We're taking a nice non-rushed cross country trip starting the middle of this week. I'll keep an eye out for meet-n-greets and the like when we're there.

Hey DrHolliday, welcome ! I am originally from the Baltimore, MD. area myself and know D.C. well. You'll love the trail riding out here in the Northwest.

Thanks guys, finally out here and loving it so far.

One thing though... What it up with no one waving out here? I've waved at every jeep I see and most see me and look at me weird. Is it just a Gresham thing? I know some don't like the JK's, but even the JK's don't wave.

Planning on doing the meet up on the 7th also. should be nice since Sandy is right down the road.

Just wave anyway. Remember most of the Jeeps you see out here most like will never get dirty so really don't know what it is all about.

I'll give you a wave, welcome to the NW!

Welcome, Most of them are in stock Wranglers or soccer moms that don't know whats going on "yet".. Just keep waving.. They'll figure it out.. The stock Jk owners seem a little slow only because most are first time Jeep owners a stock four door usually. I even wave at Lifted XJ's, because they know what they have.. And yes they wave back more then some others out there. lol
The Wranglers that are lifted should wave back.. Unless, they don't see you.
If they "see" you and don't wave.. they better have a good reason..

Unfortunately the new "generation" of jeep owners don't really get it. I'm not talking about age wise LOL but the Yuppies that want to look cool or the collage girl that wants to play barbie don't seem to wave. I have been getting more and more now that the tops are coming off and the weather is nicer.

We have a couple other guys on here from the Gresham area too.

Welcome. I lived in Gresham for 5 years. Lots to see and do on the eastside. If your into hiking I would highly recommend eagle creek. Hike all the way to tunnel falls. You won't be dissapointed. I didn't own a Jeep when I lived there but I'm sure there are lots of trails being so close to Mt. Hood NF. Cheers.

Are you calling me snobby for not waving?!!?

Welcome DrHolliday. Even though I am pretty late to the game here! I do wave to everybody!

Glad to see you have a JK! Another one of me to be jealous of!

Welcome to Oregon!!! I'm originally from Tualatin but now living downtown.

On a side note however i agree with what most people are saying as well, i dont really wave at the *cough* mommy missles *cough* haha i mean jks, because its just awkward. Most the time its middle aged women dropping their kids off at school or soccer practice and when i wave they probably think...
A) im confusing them for someone else i know that drives a similar van err i mean jeep
or
B) that im hitting on them hahahah
So for now i dont wave at JKs but i always wave back if one waves at me. even if they do have onstar! hahahah just kidding i bash on them because im really just jealous of the rubicons with their electronic swaybar disconnects.

however im totally content with my TJ, when i break anything, its still relatively affordable to find and replace. even if i had the money id feel a little eerie driving my 25k 30k car over rocks etc.

Based on what I saw on October 1st, I would say you easily passed that test with flying colors .

Now I just wanna lift it to make it up some tougher trails and use the skid plates less, lol. I'm very impressed with the stock rubi out of the box though
