Hey, if you're bored, and want to camp tomorrow night (Friday), a few
of us are headed up to Stub Stewart tomorrow - we'll be leaving the
MAX station at Hatfield Government Center at 5pm sharp and riding up
to Stub Stewart so we can check out the new improvements to the Banks-
Vernonia trail. Here's the plan:


5pm: Depart Hatfield Government Center MAX station in Hillsboro
6pm: Arrive in Banks, get food at the Thirftway
6:30pm: hit the road
8pm: Arrive at the park


10am-ish: Ride to Vernonia, check out status of north end of trail
noon: eat Chinese food in Vernonia
1:30pm hit the trail heading south
5pm-ish: arrive back in Hillsboro

Obviously, there is a strong possibility we'll be back later than the
time given here. It should be dry on the ride to Stub Stewart, but
there's a 50% chance of rain Saturday, and almost certainly rain
Saturday evening. Lows in the 40s, highs in the mid-50s.

This is not meant for beginners, but we have experienced folk going,
so if you feel like camping Friday night, and are available, you are
more than welcome. Check out the minimum gear list on the website - - and reply to this message if you have any
questions for me about this trip. (replies come only to me, they do
not go to the entire group)

Next scheduled trip is in 1 more week (1st weekend of November) - also
to Stub Stewart, so if you can't make it this weekend, try next
