    Gee, I almost never visit this subforum, so sorry for the late bump.
    I don't know if you're still interested, where in Oregon?

    Sometime next year I'll be moving to the Portland area. Please update if anything comes up.

    I'm nearby. Definitely in. I know of another guy who will be in for it too. I've wanted to have one here for awhile, but I don't have a place where I can host a group, and I haven't put the time into finding a nice outdoor venue.

    At one point Ken Good decided downtown was a great place to light up KOIN tower...

    I always wanted to light up Multnomah Falls...

    Call me crazy but I think Reed College isn't such a bad place for a meet-up. It has a nice open field and the neighborhood is very quiet. Pretty close to Cartopia for post meetup munchies.

    Reed College sounds like a good lead for location. If they'll let us play with the dark, then we should give it a go.

    I'm quite willing to help illuminate the falls too. Sounds like a great future plan.

    Might I suggest Stub Stewart state park? There's plenty of open space and little light pollution. It's also not too far from Hillsboro. There's a video about half way down the page here showing what the area looks like. I doubt there are many campers there this time of year, but a phone call could verify that. Saturday nights after 8PM or Sundays and Monday nights are good for me.

    I'm in and I think one of my co-workers would be as well. I live in Tigard and work in Beaverton.

    Any chance we could make this happen before the end of February? I'm working in Hillsboro this month, but I'm not sure after that.

    I probably won't be moving to Portland until March~May of next year. If you guys hold a get together I'll wait until the next one.

    Did anything ever come of this? I won't be heading up to Portland anytime soon, but if there are any future plans I'm interested.

    Unfortunately, not that I know of. Many of us folks in the northern hemisphere don't much pay as attention to flashlights during the summer months.

    ... wait ... why can't I see anything outside the windows in the morning these days?
