I'm giving a public lecture on NW Coast Archaeology at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) on October 3rd at 7.45 (This link says 7.00 but there is an AGM first, I think). It's free and open to the public. If you come, be sure to say hi. I'm also in Portland the next day (October 4) and if anyone was interested in meeting for an after-work beer that would be fun - but I'm staying near Gladstone/Jennings Lodge so don't know how feasible that is, I don't know Portland at all.
After noting the success of previous Oregon-Washington regional campouts, some California MeFites suggested one down thataway. UPDATE: Here is a link to the spreadsheet to coordinate meals, equipment, etc. [more inside]
Bring a book, we'll be reading. This goes from 2pm until 4pm. During that time, I will provide one billion flavors of tea for you to sip on. Caffeinated and herbal options available. All readers welcome. MeMail to RSVP and for the actual (nearby) address.
Details added: Tryon Park, then lunch somewhere in Sellwood.My plan is to slowly amble through the nature center and the trees at a leisurely place. More ambitious hikers can charge ahead! Memail me if you need my number. (You're welcome to just join us at the restaurant, too.) [more inside]

Having taken Seattle by storm the previous week, my west coast pre-nursing-school vacation continues with a stop in Portland from April 21st-27th. I haven't been here since I've been old enough to drink, and I gather you've got a lot of tasty beer. Can you show me some good examples? [more inside]

There will be: food! games! music! probably drinking! definitely fire on the beach! camaraderie! et cetera et cetera. Spreadsheet! [more inside]
I'm going to be in Eugene for a philosophy conference and I have a couple of free nights that I'd love to spend with any available mefites. I'll have a rental car so I can travel, within reason. Anybody interested in sharing a meal or beverage with a Pennsylvanian mefite?
Maybe next year! [more inside]
hugandpint and I will be in Portland, Oregon, USA for a spell in June and are interested in putting together a meetup that involves karaoke on either 6/6, 6/7, 6/8, or 6/9. I could get all fancy and actually look up where a good spot to do this might be or I could just ask if anyone has any ideas as to where the best karaoke digs are. [more inside]

Semester (er, I mean quarter, whatever) has started up again. Lunch some time? Yes! Lunch! Loco Locos, Friday 12 April 2013 at noon-ish.
So someone at the last meetup mentioned camping and then someone mentioned camping with Metafilter and then someone else thought "Yeah, let's do that". So here I am posting a camping meetup. Tent, mostly. With some options. [more inside]
