    Default Moving to Washington or Oregon

    Hey guys my name is Bryan aka Dominator. My wife wants to move to WA or OR. I told her sure as long as there was some boating going on it wouldnt be a problem.

    My question to the N West Coast is whats up? Are you guys like us here and have gatherings and races like we do down in here in AZ? Please let me know what down low is. I would like to hear from everyone who is into boating.

    Thanks, Bryan

    Wishing for a cold refreshing bottle of beer.

    There are tons of places to boat in WA ID and OR. I am sure some others will chime in but I have been all over WA and ID for 25 years, in fact I am going up there in two weeks to hang at our lake place up there. We can talk about it over some beers if you want to get together.

    I'm about 35 miles northeast of Seattle and we have a few good places to boat. Our local spot is the Snohomish river near Everett, but there are many other lakes around and for big weekends you can shoot over the pass and go to a number of places on the eastern side.

    Hey Bryan ~

    I'm from SoCal and visiting Washington State for the 4th. We drove from Seattle to Spokane (90E?) today and saw some amazing waterways! Just from the highway we saw tons of boaters on the Columbia River (it's a BIG river), as well at Lake Moses and Pothole resevior. Several other lakes were un-named, but folks were out having a blast! Air temp ranged from high 80's to low 100's and minimal wind.

    The only downside, is that the fun looks to be summer only if you like hanging out trunks and playing in the water. Google Lakes of Washinton State for additional fun spots!

    Best of luck in your potential relocation!

    Oh buddy, iff'n you're looking for water, this is your place. Looking at your avatar it looks like you're a lil boat kinda guy and if that 's the deal, check out www.skagenboats.com for all the happenings and killer service on your ride.

    Come on up north, you'll like it. Just gotta get use to the weather.

    First Pic is Lake Tapps, the others are at the Potholes in Eastern Washington on the Labor Day weekend where the SkagenBoats bunch have a big run.

    Here's a link to the fallout of last years run (which I didnt make )

    Malcolm also has some killer pics of the Snohomish river runs where a bunch of the northend gang hang out.

    Good luck with the job hunting. What do you want to do for a living up here? Might be able to poke you in some directions.......john

    Dominator,

    Until Mar of last year, I lived all over Washington and Oregon. I am also local to Chandler and would be willing to talk about what those states have to offer. Just let me know when you want to get both the advantages/dis-advantages to the NorthWet. (<-not a typo)

    You bet, that was Saturday! The booze was in the back seat, no need to hide it on the river...
