Local PDX/Vancouver clubs?
I am interested in getting involved with a local club as I am completely unfamiliar with trails in the region. I live in east Vancouver/Camas. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Next weekend is our Go Topless run
Our Wrangler forum Group (SW Washington & NW Oregon) is putting on a Cruise for Go Topless Day on May 18th 2013. We are planning to drive from Troutdale Oregon east via scenic Oregon roads, crossing the Columbia River via The Dalles Bridge returning to Vancouver Washington west via scenic SR14 in Washington, about a 200 mile cruise.

We will be in the historic Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area that encompasses 292,500 acres, running from the mouth of the Sandy River to the mouth of the Deschutes and spanning southern Washington and northern Oregon for 85 miles. The Gorge is unique in its natural and cultural history, as well as its designation as a National Scenic

Depending on how many show up we may stop for lunch in The Dalles area or we may need to eat on the run, be prepared. Be prepared for the changing weather conditions that may occur.

We will meet in Troutdale Oregon at the Sandy Bridge.

Be ready to go with a full tank of fuel, a large group travels slow so we will need to get going and keep on the move.

Gather at 8 am
Leaving at 9am
