that's a good idea to ask at the IBC.

i bet greg would go. he was selling an 18ft bombard that was his personal boat so he may be boatless.

tell him andy with the C5 is going too.

unfortunately i don't know anyone else with a rib or sib.

Guys,

I don't know how to say this, but last night I rolled my ankle while playing basketball. It's in pretty bad shape and I with the lack of RIBS for this event. Maybe we should just work on the Summer trip.

Thoughts?

I'm still game to go. Being its still 2 weeks away I would think your ankle would be back too 100% as long as something isn't pulled or broken. Lodging is paid for so I would probably end up going one way or the other any how. As for quantity of RIBS well we have to start some where. I would also like to do a summer trip this summer maybe the San Juanís? Let me know what everyone else is thinking. All though it is a very short list. I do have to agree John I was hoping for a better turn out and I do hope you ankle gets better. If you have to bow out it's perfectly understandable.

Sounds good, and you are right my ankle should be fine by then. We need to work out the details of a launching point and where we can safely store our vehicles.

I will start doing some looking around this week while i'm suppose to be working. Is there a marina around that would have a secure lot we could pay to park?

I think this is probably our best option. Select the Storage/Parking link on the left hand side of the screen. I don't know if they have a daily rate, but I will look into it.

http://columbiacrossings.com/

Columbia Crossings can ease the stress of too many vehicles and trailers in your garage and driveway. We offer 35 covered and 170 uncovered spaces for trailers, RVís, and vehicles up to 35 feet. The rates are reasonable and both facilities are secured with electronic gates and patrolled 24 hours. Access is 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Columbia Crossings' parking facilities are just 1/2 mile from I-5, between Vancouver and Portland.

* Large, covered asphalt pads
* Ample turning radius for large vehicles
* Solid steel roof, minimum 12'6" clearance
* Public storage available onsite



Just minutes from the open road.

I called them last night and it's only $5 a day to park there if they have room. The guy who answered the phone said it's best to call a couple days in advanced. The only thing is that they don't have a boat launch. Any idea's on how to get the vehicles to the parking and back to the boats? I won't have anyone with me who can drive a truck and trailer or my boat. I think John will have the same problem being I think he's coming solo. This looks like a great place to leave the rigs if we could just work out the logistics.

John/Andy have you guys heard of anyone messing with vehicles if we just left them at the boat launch on the Vancover side? It's either that or we launch and if Andy's comfortable with it take my boat to the Crossings to pick us up after we park the trucks. and run us back to grab Johns boat. Unless John has someone coming with us that can drive his boat. By the way John how is the ankle doing?

sure i'll drive your boat over there. i don't know much about that place as far as crime. i know most of the inner city ramps have issues from time to time. i'm just going to make sure i don't leave anything valuable in my truck.

can't wait. i may have scurried up a last minute date for the trip too.
