Days 43, 44, 45 - Corvallis, OR

No posts for several days and, unfortunately, no pictures. We had the opportunity to met up with Trobairitz and Troubadour at the Woodsman, a great Thai place in Philomath, for dinner. The name and chainsaw/bow saw decor doesn’t scream “Thai” but the food is very good. Plus they offered traditional pub food. We caught up them on what’s been happening with their new jobs, home renovation projects and even a few Moto-topics.

My older sister came up from Cottage Grove for a few days and my nephew, his wife and one year old came down from Portland where they were visiting family. They normally live in Anchorage and their home was severely damaged in the 7.2 earthquake last fall.

Today, Wednesday, I headed over to Team Oregon to visit with Dan Bateman aka Irondad on his blog Musings of an Intrepid Commuter. Brad (Troubadour), also works for Team Oregon and we are in their warehouse. It was great to catch up with him as it has been several years since I had last seen him.

A moto blogger convention, good times... I miss that.

Looks like a great set of reunions....I think Irondad would look quite studly on a sidecar rig....assuming Brad doesn’t carry out an intervention! Something like CCjon’s new rig perhaps.

A chance to gather in person...the best way and time to share. Way to go all!

Not quite a convention but still good.

You mean there’s something better than a Ural!?

In person meet ups are great!

Dan and I speak of the IMBC all the time, we miss you Sonja.
Thanks for the photo Richard, it is always good to see you.

Very cool! I know I'm late, but I'm looking forward to meeting up with Brandy and Brad when we get to Oregon in August! Meet ups are always fun!
