Eh the only shop I know of is metaltech, but they are in Newberg Oregon.
I'm thinkin I want to start a once every month get together thing. Sort of transition between one month is wheeling month, next month is non-wheeling, something like that. Getting that much organized wheeling in might be ambitious, but for the non-wheeling meets we could do stuff like
-offroad workshops: a small recovery class, maybe something like showing how a snatch strap works, a few winch moves in action, etc. Also maybe where we pick a single nearby trail and have one driver while one guy narrates what is being done.
-beer and burger night with open discussion
I'm terrible at setting dates, so it may take me a bit to start this up if there's interest. I think first meet might just be watchin some Bill Burke videos at my place unless there's huge interest.
