Welcome to the forum, and to the jeep life style! We have monthly GTG's and runs often in this neck of the woods.

I'm in Aloha. I"m hosting a Newbie run ON the 18th of this month. For all the Newbies to the forum. Check out the link in my signature. It is where we post all the info for events and get together. :-) Hope to meet you soon! Oh and we have a Group Meeting on the 12th if feel up to running up to Vancouver.

Sounds Great! Not all runs are on Saturdays so I'm sure you will get to come to one :-) We have several guys that have weekdays off also. So we get a verity of days of the week.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Thank you. I am very happy with it. I harassed the previous owner for 2 years to sell it to me and he finally gave in. I have Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays off every week. This week will be spent registering/insuring and getting my OHV permit for it and going though and checking torque on everything since i just drove it 1100 miles from SoCal to hillsboro.

OHV Permit can be got at Hillsboro Honda something something across from the airport and the nest to the Fair grounds, or at Accessory Outfitters on Alexander and 181st just one block of TV HY

If you need to know where anything is just ask :-) Been on this side of town for about 15 years.

Hillsboro motorsports has them. I got the one for my hunting quad there when i first got here in august last year. but it is now in montana being used by my buddies dad on his property since he can't get around as easy anymore.

Is there any place around I can go that doesn't require a permit? I just want to get out for a little bit sunday

Not that will offer trails. Up out of Astoria at Fort Stevens has beach access. No permit required but no dunes to play on.Or stop at the forest service station and get a service road map. Service roads can be gravel roads to something more challenging.

AWESOME!!!! That covers most of the OHV Parks Including the dunes. But when playing in the Dunes you also have to have an Orange flag I think 9 feet in the air. But don't quote me on the height LOL
