    Okay I am shooting for the first or second sat or sun in may. Give me the date that would be best for you. Tell me what size wood you would like to see. I have a 6ft dia stump thats solid for anyone wanting to play with long bars. I will mostly have doug and white fir with some maple.
    Camping will be avalible in the field if you would like to camp. Motels are avalible in Hood River. Am thinking about just hamburgers and chips for food.
    Need to get a Idea on how many want to come? So give me you best time for may and I will go from there.

    Dates Dates Dates!!!

    First week ends the best for me. Got a wedding down in California on the 17th. of May. Since it's the brother in law I have little choice. What ever date turns out best for most is fine. I don't want to miss it but there's always next year!.....Bob

    Cedarkerf and I will be there. Probably leave here on the Saturday after he gets home from work.
    Let us know what we should bring and which weekend.
    I was thinking if everyone brought breakfast stuff we could all cook together, have variety.:clap:
    What you think?
    It will be fun to put a face to the names.

    I'll be in San Diego during April & May for work, but I don't see myself getting that much time off to head north for the weekend. Would be neat to meet all of you guys...will have to see what happens. How many miles you allowed to put on a rental car a day???? lol

    I'm only about a half hour from the airport. Maybe an hour and a half to booker's place from there.

    If they don't, you can hang out at the IKEA store before flying home. It looks like it would be easy to hide in. :) Right next to the Airport. Almost.

    Count ME!!!!

    Just marked it on the calendar! Really looking forward to it! son in law will be with me. I'm planning on bringing a bunch of saws to share, only one of which would be a Stihl. It will be Husky's, Jonsereds, Homelites & Echo's for those who are without the advantage of having been "STIHL BORN".
    I am more than willing to help out in any way I can to share in making your event a PNW success. Just let me know what's needed. :cheers:

    I'm in. I've never been to one of these, but from what I see of pictures of other get togethers, it looks like a lot of fun. I'll be bringing an 026 Stihl and an 044 Stihl. I might even bring my Homelite 3314. I'll also bring a portable sawbuck that may be of some use.

    I won't be camping as I live about an hour and a half away in Tigard, Oregon.

    Bookerdog, thanks for hosting this.

    I will have to check my work schedule to be sure but you know I think I might just come on over. Not sure how many saws I can stuff into the trunk of the car since I am way to cheap to drive the truck that far :) Will come down 12 and hang a right by St Hellens turn off... Cant remember the name of the hwy although I was down it last year and it was paved all the way now.
