-the powder pig in back is just along for the ride (and the powder of course).
It's been way too long since I've been on a fun backcountry trip like that one up in B.C.. I need a partner in crime! Who wants to find some new roads to ride (bike ride that is) around the Pac. NW? Who wants to go sea kayaking in the Gulf Islands? Who wants to go to City of Rocks to rock climb? Anyone up for a backpack trip in the Wallowas? How about some theater in Portland during the week or to a wine-tasting event in the Willamette Valley somewhere? I think you get the picture. There's lots to do out there, and even just around here, and oh-so-much-more fun when you can do it in good company!
What I really like to do on a first 'date' is actually DO something (other than sit over coffee...) You can talk just fine as you ride together down the road, or as you hike along the path or walk your dog(s) together. But, happy hours can also work or even meeting for lunch during the week.
