        Hey Robert R here. Looking for like minded individuals to meetup for some cold (or hot) beverages and piss off the hipsters.

            I’m in the general area. On the coast side of the metro area. I guess I don’t fit the area (AZ replant), don’t drink coffee or beer.

              We have a small group with a mix of ex military and civilian. I tend to run the FTE’s. Always looking for like minded people. Pm if interested. :)

                You are not alone.

                My group and I are about 4 hours away if needed.

                  Doc B, it’s nice to know I’m in good company. Not to speak for everyone but 4 hours is do-able in my book. I’d wouldn’t mind a meet n greet in the near future.

                      I’m in the far east side of the Portland Metro area. As noted, like minded people are difficult to find around Moscow on the Willamette…

                          Salem, here. Moving to Idaho by the end of the year but would like to meet up.

                            Gee. The old adage “when it rains, it pours” seems appropriate :-)
                            I’m glad to see I’m in like minded company giving the mix of socialists and hippies(sters) in the area.

                            I’ll throw some dates out and see who is interested in a meetup. I’m pretty fexible in the evenings and weekends.

                              Central Eastern. Prior service/old black boot army and lots of Mosby training under the belt.

                                Hey Frank,
                                Mosby, I hear, is legit and up to speed. He’s the reason I found Max.

                                He’s having some family issues apparently so his training schedule has been interrupted but I plan on getting training with him since he is in my AO.

                                  Did a class with him last weekend out of salem. He’s the real deal and a pretty good time to boot. I always look forward to linking up. I’ve met a few solid dudes who I keep in touch with. In fact am spending this weekend with some peeps I met through Mosby. Its good way to network if nothing else but I promise you’ll learn lots in his classes especially if your not prior service. Of course max’s curriculum over laps in most aspects from what I gather.

                                  Mosby and I have been trying to get enough peeps together to do some sort of patrol 2 class but its difficult finding enough folks who have been to a sut class.

                                    I did a CRCD class in April and it was impressive to say the least.

                                    Funny you mentioned the Salem class. My training buddy (from Portland) drove down there to take the class but there was a miscommunication on the location, so he missed it.

                                    Apparently Mosby felt bad about it and promised to make it up to him with a future class of his choice. The way he handled that shows what a stand up and classy guy he is.

                                    Frank, please keep me in the loop if anything comes up.

                                            Gentlemen. I want to throw out an invite for a December 6 meet n greet in or around Portland. I like the local brews so I was thinking of a place with decent food and beverages.
                                            I’m open to an alternate date but I’ll be out of town Dec 11-12.

                                            Reply “yes” and I’ll PM you a time and place.

                                              Looks like Dec 13th works better with other schedules.

                                                I may be down for it, but something to consider is that the 13th is when the protest against I-594 is going on in Olympia, so there may be folks there, very possibly including myself. Who knows, may be more fruitful to connect with folks here, though.

                                                    Ok. Dec 13 meetup in portland is being postponed. There are some guys interested in going to the Olympia rally, myself included.
                                                    So if youre interested, maybe a meetup would be possible before/after?

                                                      Just keep us in the loop on another potential meetup date.

                                                        Definitely.
                                                        Here is what I’m thinking. There are a few guys from Tacoma and a few from Portland/Vancouver who are interested in a meet up. Centralia is about half way for both and has a few restaurants to pick from.
                                                        Those further south or east will have to put in a few more miles. Sorry guys.

                                                        Due to the holidays, getting a set date/time that works for all is like the proverbial herding of cats. So maybe after the new year would be best for picking a date. It’s far enough out so guys can plan accordingly.

                                                        Thoughts/Suggestions welcome.

                                                          That probably makes the most sense, but obviously if anything comes up where folks are in the area they can post a quick BOLO.

                                                                      Same as before, reply “Yes Jan 10” or “Yes Jan 11” and I’ll pm you the location details.
                                                                      On a side note I think it would be a good opportunity to discuss the second Olympia 1-594 Rally Jan 15th. I plan on going and meeting up with a few guys there.
