So I'm making a trip down to the Astoria area, and wouldn't mind if I happened
to meet some Subaru people while I'm down there :)
I'll be staying in the fort clatsop campground (I think that's the name of it),
right off the coast.

I think I'll be taking the BRAT, so if there's anybody willing to assist if I have any issues, that would be GREAT.
Anyway, I'll be leaving thursday, and I'll be there all weekend.

PS: The only part I suspect I may have issues is on my beach cruise :D

Hey, just got my route completely figured out, I'll be going down Highway 395 from I-90, to I-82, then to I-84 across to Highway 101. So, is there anybody hiding along my route? (Indrid Cold, I know you're on my route :) )

Twitch

PS: I just looked at the Northwest Folks thread and a few of you should at
least pop in :-p

From the dry-cities I head down Columbia on Oregon side, take 205 North to I-5 and jump over at Longview and catch hwy-30 but I-5 Highway is screaming along so another trip, I did take HWY-30 out of Portland and that was a nice drive as it wasn't the huge free-way, good wide road, pleasant and my tom-tom made navigating easy to get to hwy-30.

Besides if you do Hwy-30 you can stop by St. Helens and see where they filmed some of the, "Twilight" movie..:popcorn:.. I took my teen girl to all the film spots (house, dress shop, alley, Bloated Toad,) ... I am, the best dad in the whole world! but I guess your probably NOT into THAT:mad:.. so just drive by...

We really need to think about getting the northwest folks together for a nice beach meet. Ocean Shores or somewhere around there.

Well, make room in your schedule for this weekend and I'll already be down
there :banana:
How about Canon Beach?
Or maybe Seaside, its closer.

True, but you can drive on the beaches around fort stevens (that's the name
of the campground, not clatsop, my bad), and they aren't too bad.
I've seen a couple FWD cars out and about in there, just not too far out.

Thanks for the offer, but I got out of first Gen's a while back.
Unless a car gets given to me, I'm not likely to be needing any parts
Anybody else need parts?
Phone number posted below...

Oh, and before I go, which will be soon, I'm posting up my phone number, so if
anybody wants to contact me, they can.
Remember though, I'll be driving through WA in a noisy BRAT with a bluetooth
speakerphone, so it may be difficult to talk while driving.
If i can't understand you or its too irritating for you to talk to me, I'll call you
back at the next rest stop, or munchies stop :)
PH# (208) 6six1-8two09, written digits are for a spam guard.

PS: Hope to see y'all on the flipside :D

Mwahahaha, I'm BACK! :banana:

It was most fun, met some new family, reintroduced to old family, reuinited
with more family...
It was awesome overall.
I saw a couple older subes, but they were gen 3's at the oldest, and nobody
really waved :(

Sorry I didn't get to see anybody, but it may have been awkward with the
family there :-\

I went Baja-ing :headbang: got pix and video too :slobber:
I just have to wait for my cuz to e-mail it to me :)
THEN THERE WILL BE MAYHEM!!!
You guys will be able to see how horrible of a driver I actually am :eek:

Anywany, it was awesome and I hope to be able to make it down there again
soon, maybe this time to meet some suber guys and gals ;)
