Default Portland SnowCat Get Together?!

While it seems that the Colorado side will be having a blast, I figured I would throw this out there anyone local to Oregon's PNW side and wants to join!

Testing waters for the weekend of the March 8-10th...

I have a perfect spot to try your cats out locally, not too far from Estacada, OR, meeting would take place at Ripplebrook Ranger Station and from there its 20 miles of trailering (most likely) to the drop off point, from which we would have another 15 miles to a spot by a Olallie Lake, or stop and stay at the Olallie Meadows Cabin (possible overnight for those interested).

So, as they say - just testing waters, let me know if there is any interest.

Some of you might recognize the cat and the driver... :)

p.s. this is the Olallie Meadows cabin, with a propane heater becomes quiet comfy with sleeping for 10 on cots if needed (tightly)

I can verify that it stays warm with a 3 burner heater 👍🏽
Thanks Nikson, trip was fun. No issues and yes... that snow was DEEP!

Test went well, lets talk about an overnighter to that cabin with the mafia :)

I can bring couple of photographers to make this more memorable with drone footage and some good panorama shots :)

How about 17th? What distance/time do we care to spend cruising around?

I have 2 possible locations for this event, either a 7 mile one way, or 14 miles one way... both scenic locations.
