It has been very quiet in here.  Is there anyone in Oregon who wants to meet up to take Lefty on the next leg?  If not Oregon, how about meeting in eastern Washington?  Anybody interested?

My thoughts exactly. I've reached out to both magconpres (Portland, OR) and mickey6 to see if we can get a rider set up to to take the handoff for Team PNW. Don't leave GZ waiting too long!  :o

GZ 2.0 has been languishing in Meridian, Idaho for a week now (http://forums.sohc4.net/index.php?topic=105559.msg1208029#msg1208029) and we have had no luck finding anyone willing to meet up with ofreen to pick up the baton. If we can't get something going by the end of the week (6/15/12) we are going to have to consider shipping the baton. Where is everyone? If we ship the baton to Seattle, is there a way to connect with Team Northern in Montana or North Dakota? Or are we going to have to ship the baton from there as well? We are in dire need of some feedback!

    Lefty needs your help!

You guys need to figure out what to do about Oregon first.

I'm getting to the point to where I'm thinking to hell with Oregon. It has me thinking of last year as well. If I had wrecked my bike last year would it be the same deal, nobody stepping up.

tlbranth has already messaged me about getting Godzilla from Portland to Seattle. But you know what it can't happen if no one gets on their bike and rides to pick up lefty from Greg.

Well if we don't have an Oregon rider to do the pick up in the next couple days I say if you're up to it Greg, ride to the Oregon Idaho border and take a pic of Godzilla just short (not in Oregon, still in Idaho). Then ship him to someone in Seattle. I was way against shipping him in the first place and now that it comes down to it and it looks like we're going to have to it happens not only in my region but in my effin state.

Ahhh, don't be too rough on em', I know life has a way of encroaching on my leisure time. You know how that is first hand, with the wrecked bike and all...  ;)

tlbranth is leaving out for an extended tour on his Goldwing for the next four weeks ( http://forums.sohc4.net/index.php?topic=108181.msg1212945#msg1212945 ) or he would step up and make the connection. Ride safe friend!  8)

We've got a "buy" week built into the schedule here just for this type of situation, so we can go till at least the end of the week before we have to make the hard decision whether or not to ship.  8) Just a shame to burn it up since we were almost a week ahead of schedule last weekend.  :(

Keep kickin ideas around, someone may chime in yet! And mickey, get to work puttin that bike back together!  ;D

Yeah I'm sorry I'm being so rough it's just frustrating. Last yer was pretty much the same in Oregon, it's like there is almost no interest here. As far as my 500 I was able to trade it for another project (1934 pontiac sedan ;D). I do still have my 400f project in my garage ;D.

Either way we need to figure this out. I know I'm not the only rider in Oregon. If I am, if there was someone to loan out a cb I'll go get lefty and get him to Portland. But at the same time if you own a bike wouldn't you rather make the ride yourself.... it's a great ride through eastern Oregon.

I have been thinking about what to do about this.  It would be cool to meet up with someone like Mickey and I did last year somewhere in eastern Oregon.  Last year the goal was to have an unbroken chain of custody of GZ on a SOHC4 from start to finish while hitting all the lower 48 states and most of the provinces.  We all proved it could be done.  It was a tremendous effort on the part of a lot of people.  After North America that was no longer the focus and the relay hasn't suffered for it.  GZ made it through New Zealand and Australia, soon to be headed to Europe.  In between, GZ has been transported on bikes other than Hondas, in cars, in a cardboard box, etc. 

So is it necessary this year to get all wrapped around the axle about having the unbroken chain of custody like last year?  Maybe not.  How about if we just make sure each state is represented and each province too (except maybe the ones than span the Arctic Circle), if possible.  I could take a little ride up through the Wallowas in northeast Oregon into southeast Washington next weekend for some photo opportunities, then find a post office and mail the stuff in a flat rate box to someone in Portland or Seattle.  Or whereever the group decides and there is someone to ride.

Just an idea for people to consider.  It would take the pressure off.

And Mickey, don't feel bad.  You came through last year when it counted and this year, well sometimes #$%* happens.  I'd like to see a pic of that Pontiac.

Greg level headed as always ;). Well I think you are onto something with your idea of just touch the edge of Oregon and ship him from there. I would think shipping to Seattle after grazing Oregon would be a good way to do it (if someone is going to be able to get him to Canada). Then from there it seems like there is a pretty solid group of our friends from the north to carry on from there.

Thank you for the incouragement Greg. I just don't want to be the leader of the leg that falls through, so I've been stressing a little.

If you still have the same number you did last year I can send you a pic via cell if you'd like.

Hey, I know what you are going through; I went through it last year. This year things were more laid-back and enjoyable, at least for me, thanks to the support from fellow members. Too bad you haven't had as much support in your area, but that's not your fault. I guess the folks to the north of you are in a continuous state of depression, due to the gloomy weather so common there. A ride east out of the fog-belt might wake them up, but it looks like we'll never know...

hey guys, magconpres posted in our Team Northern planning group about possibly wanting to meet up in Portland for a day ride with GZ. I already PM'ed him with a link to your planning thread. even if he cant meet for the handoff maybe GZ could be mailed to him, he could ride around OR with him, then mail him off to WA. just an idea

Portland to Seattle IS a day ride. 175 miles each way. 7-8 hrs round trip including stops. Somebody has to have a bike that can do this.

I just can't take the thought of 'zilla being carried by a cage on roads where bikes can go. PM sent to scottly to see if there's anything I can do to help.

EDIT: Checking into possibility of grabbing GZ at ID/OR border and wheeling him towards Seattle. Would need some help from ID rider, and Seattle riders to meet me on the road. It's 1147 miles from SF to Boise to Seattle, and then there's the whole getting home part  :P

You don't have to come all way to Boise Sean. We could meet up somewhere in eastern Oregon. Keep in mind that if you go to all the time, trouble and expense taking GZ all the way to Seattle, right now there's no one to take it any farther than that. I had a pm out to one of our B.C. members about a meetup in eastern Washington since it is plain he is not shy about riding his bike some distance, but never got a response. Maybe you'll have better luck. I'd take GZ to Seattle myself if I had any confidence the relay would continue unbroken from there. Otherwise it is a considerable expense without accomplishing much if GZ ends up getting mailed anyway.

Otherwise my intention right now is to take a 600-700 mile ride this weekend up through the Wallowas in NE Orecgon and SE Washington to get GZ into those two states.  After that, I'll wait for someone to get off the dime.

    Hey Greg, at least you're not skirting the ice storms this year, right? I wouldn't be able to get on the road until next Thursday/Friday, so if that gives time to reach people who've been out of touch then I'm still game. It doesn't hurt me any to continue prepping as if I'd be riding up there, even if you end up taking off this weekend.

    I've been wanting to ride Wash/Ore for a while now, and this has got to be a great time of year to do it. California has it's share of forests, lakes, mountains and coast, but we also have more than our share of people in cars, so every destination is crammed full of traffic on weekends. Would be nice to get out in the back woods a bit.

    Last year I was really surprised at the lack of riders willing to commit from Los Angeles area, it being such a large population area with long time members and such. It took a new member, Mooshie, to pick up the baton, and she represented again this year. Maybe we need to get on a recruitment drive in Washington and Oregon to see if any riders exist amongst the weekend enthusiasts and commuters. Yes, that was a jab, don't make me come up there  ;)

With all due respect fellas. If you look beyond your own little world,  you’ll see a post on this page and another on the previous  page where I offered to take GZ on the tour of his lifetime. Tweakin, BrandEn, Wookie and I are riding from Seattle over the North Cascade Highway and north to Osoyooss BC,before working our was to the Olympic city of Whistler and Vancouver.

Does that sound like GZ will be forgotten in the PNW? But you’d better get a move on it as that trip starts on July 6th, with or without GZ.

GZ 2.0 has been languishing in Meridian, Idaho for a week now (http://forums.sohc4.net/index.php?topic=105559.msg1208029#msg1208029) and we have had no luck finding anyone willing to meet up with ofreen to pick up the baton. If we can't get something going by the end of the week (6/15/12) we are going to have to consider shipping the baton. Where is everyone? If we ship the baton to Seattle, is there a way to connect with Team Northern in Montana or North Dakota? Or are we going to have to ship the baton from there as well? We are in dire need of some feedback!

    Lefty needs your help!

Get GZ to BrandEn or Tweakin by July 6th and we'll take him on the PNW/BC tour of his life.

Cheers
FJ

The order of these posts had me thinking that July 6th was a bit late, no? Godzilla likes Greg, but a month with him might be asking a bit much. If you guys have the plans all set, and pick-up, hand off settled then by all means have at it. Just please share that information because every leg after yours needs to make plans as well.

So would you like GZ served on a silver platter to your house then?  Since I've been back from Utah I've asked for anybody who might be interested in meeting to do a handoff.  I haven't heard from the two you've mentioned or from you about such an event.  I took your post to mean if somebody delivers it to the Seattle area, you are willing to take GZ.  It appears others took it the same way, including your coordinator.  I am well aware of how big the world is, as I've ridden over a good sized chunk of it.  It is a sizeable chunk between here and Seattle and gas is 4 something a gallon.  Do you want to meet up somewhere in between?  If not I guess I better get a 'move on.' ;)
