I'll be in a dark grey Nissan Frontier. My number is[masked]-8696.

This ride is open to newbies and novices or anyone else who doesn't mind going slow, gravel roads, and easier trails. Feel free to break off and do two groups but I will be sticking with the slower group.

    Awesome. Thanks for letting me tag along since I'd never ridden there before. Looks like a lot of time should be spent there in the future...

      Thanks for coming! I was just thinking it was one of my favorite rides all year! A great group of people!

    Looked like fun!! Hopefully we can get another day out soon!

    November 30, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      It was a blast, Ben! We finally found some single track near the end of the day. :-)

    Should have gone with the group...stayed in Hood River and rode from Binns Hill, broke my right forefinger and snapped off my front fender:( Not my best outing...

    November 30, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      Ouch! Sorry to hear it, Petrina!

      November 30, 2013

  • Kris F.

    That was an awesome last ride of the season for me! Thanks for coming out to play! Can't wait til next season!

    I'd love to go, but again I don't trust my bike. I'm going to haul it over to my brother's soon and hope my nephew can work on it and I'll be ready for warmer spring riding. I want to look for a new petcock, but besides it being an obsolete part on most sites, the places where it's available, they want $70 for it. Does anyone know how interchangeable those parts are? (It's a 1996 Yamaha RT180.)

    November 27, 2013

    • Gaylene G.

      Sweet. It's been purchased and should arrive between December 3-9. The XC trip is posted 10-1, so I should be back by 3 or 4, I would imagine. What kind of beer do you like? :)

      November 30, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      Sweet! Alaskan Amber works for me.

      November 29, 2013

      November 29, 2013

  • Randy

    I will be there if it isn't raining hard..my wife will be on a quad and she is a beginner so it sounds like a perfect ride for her..we will be driving a green toyota tacoma with a small utility trailer ..looking forward to riding and meeting new people

    Saturday it says it's suppose to snow in Portland!! We'll be a game day decision for this ride depending on weather.

    November 27, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      That's strange! The forecast I'm looking at says 47/45 and 30% chance of showers on Saturday.

  • Troy

    Saturday is not going to work for me. Have a great time, ride safe..

    November 26, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      Have a great Thanksgiving, Troy! We'll see you on the next one!

  • Petrina P.

    Coming from Hood River is a little hard since my truck is not exactly the most reliable machine and the gas costs are hard for me right now. Never been to Browns but estimating it will take at least 2 hours from here... If the weather is decent Saturday I am determined to be there, if its cold and sloppy probably not. I can also haul one more bike and passenger if someone needs it.

    November 26, 2013

    • Jordan G.

      Mike needs a lift 2 comments down. I would but i coulda pnly gone on sunday! Comment him and exchange numbers

      November 26, 2013

  • Joey

    I'm hoping it can make this one. I was planning for Sunday but now it's on sat. I need to ride. I've been itching to go blast through some trails. I was even going to give back to back a try if get enough peer pressure ! Lol

    2 · November 26, 2013

    • Kris F.

      I want to see that! I'll provide the peer pressure!!

      1 · November 26, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      LOL! Ambitious. I've only ever seen in done in videos and only during summer months!

      1 · November 26, 2013

  • Nathan F.

    I'm considering canceling if the current forecast for Sunday remains 47degrees and 60% chance of showers. Would anyone be opposed to switching this to Saturday if the weather is better that day? In either case, I will make the determination if it will be Saturday, Sunday, or canceled by Friday morning and update here to let you all know. Remaining hopeful for decent weather though!

    November 25, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      I'm going to tentatively change this meetup to Saturday instead of Sunday. A final word will come Friday morning. You guys are welcome to ride Sunday but after the last Browns Camp ride, I'm ok skipping 40 degrees and rain. lol

      1 · November 26, 2013

  • Todd

    I am hoping the weather holds up. Never been riding there and going to need to know where the meet up place is, looking forward to a day of riding

    November 25, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      Hey Todd! I'm glad you can make it, weather permitting of course. We are meeting just before the Brown's camp entrance (currently closed), to the right of the only stop sign you'll come across on the gravel road.

      Directions to Browns Camp:

      From: Portland, OR

      US 26 west then take State Hwy 6 west to mile post 33

      Just past mile post 33 turn left (south) on Beaver Dam Rd.

      Follow signs to Browns Camp or Rogers Camp.

    Sunday works, im getting my puppy sat though from the airport so if its a sat leah and i will miss

    November 25, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      Ok Jordan. I'll keep an eye on the weather as it gets closer but it's looking like Saturday is the better weather day right now.

      November 25, 2013

  • Kris F.

    I compulsively watching the weather and hoping that rain holds off a couple extra days...

    November 25, 2013

  • Troy

    I'm a firm maybe. Down to the wire but I might make this ride.

    1 · November 16, 2013

  • Kyle G.

    If weather is good we'll try and make it!

    1 · November 11, 2013

  • Mindy

    I am hoping to go. But have to see about my work schedule. I think that the gate to the browns camp staging area will be locked. They usually close it for the winter.

    November 11, 2013

    • Nathan F.

      Good thinking, Mindy. If that's the case, we'll meet at the kids play area just before the gate.

      November 11, 2013

  • Kris F.

    I'm adopting this as my Birthday ride! One day this weekend has to be good weather, right? I'll bring cake to share!

    2 · November 11, 2013

  • Nathan S.

    If it isn't pouring rain, I'm in! Should be good and muddy out there. If anyone wants to break off at some point in the day I'm down. Cheers!
