    Anyone live in the Portland, OR area?

    Mirax and I will be in the Portland area from Thurs night (05.21) through Monday (05.25). Most of our time is going to be spent at Mt. Hood, but we have Saturday completely open and thought if there was anyone in the area, we might try to meet up!

    Mt. Hood, cool! Are you going to Timberline Lodge? It was used for the exterior shots of the Overlook Hotel from The Shining.
    I lived in Portland from 86-87. Nice city.

    Cool! I live in Seattle now, but grew up in Portland. Are you guys taking your snowboard gear? Hood is still open for riding! I might be down that weekend for work and to visit some friends. I'll post here if I end up making it down.

    PS- Be sure to hit up Burgerville for amazing green friendly shakes and burgers. And if you want a fun, crazy place, look no further than Voodoo Donuts!

    Well Cojake, MyOnlyFettish and I live just outside Portland. I think there are a few others on the board here. I will be camping most the weekend otherwise I would love to meet up. If you check in at http://www.cloudcitygarrison.com/forum I'm sure there are plenty of people willing to meet up with you two.

    I sort of do. I live between Portland, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. I won't be up there again until July-August though.

    We are snowboarding! That is the purpose of the trip! We are going for two days of instruction on Mt Hood so hopefully we will be more well equipped for the 2009-2010 season!

    Have fun, I've been out to Hood 3 times in the last 7 years. Timberline and the Meadows are both great. Downtown is sick too....sooo much fun!

    I can't wait to get out there again to ride! Have fun!

    Art,

    I'm not in the Portland area but if you decide to come to Alaska during the winter for skiing or snowboarding I'd be happy to play tour guide. Right now, I'm enjoying the nice sunny 65 degree afternoon.

    Thank you Art and Kristen for visiting Oregon and our home. Tresci and I had a blast. It also gave me an excuse to cook another meal outside on the BBQ. Don't be strangers, If you make it out here again, look us up!

    Yup! We had a great time, thanks to cojake's generosity! You have to love that no matter where you go you can find a part of the TDH family! Thanks for the great evening and the amazing food!

    Thanks so much. I must say, definitely the best meal we had while in Portland!

    Gotta say, Mt. Hood is off the hook! We will be back next year for sure, fantastic boarding and the weather was incredible.
