It's a bit of a drive but an easy day trip to Mission Raceway just outside Vancouver, BC. There is a real strong car culture here and lots of events to see and participate in. Keep an eye on the BC events page and I'm sure you'll find some great ones to attend. I'm planning on driving to some of the Washington events this year and I see some of the Wa. folks are coming to the BC- Alberta meet this summer.

Check us out on Facebook. We have the western Washington 5th generation Camaro club. Meets and cruises are being set up now. You will be just in time for the Wally's meet on August 9th. Last year we had 68cars there.

As with most places there is a lot of trucking. It is very competitive though. I have over 15 friends that drive truck. Independent or corporate.

Jeez. Oak Harbor? That's so far from everything. :( I wouldn't expect you to show up to any of the meets that Gary (With envy) sets up, typically quite a ways from where you are.

I went to Sturgis last year. It was a blast. We had like a 13-car Camarovan rolling together out of WA. People would move the hell out of our way when they saw us bearing down on them. It was awesome.

Hey, it's all relative. Some of us bought our cars to drive so we get up early and make the effort. If you want to attend something, you will do it and the drives are not that far. Ou can also meet up with others driving and make it a camarovan.

I was going to leave from a meeting place over here and go to Spokane with everyone, but I got out of work too late that day and missed it. Drove through the night to get to the hotel in Spokane and I was there in the morning with everyone. Got there at like 1am or something. I bet I had the better drive over given that there was no traffic and I was able to haul ass later in the evening. :P

That sounds like what I do now.
The drive from seattle to oak harbor was only about an hour and 20 minutes (took the ferry at tillicum?) to clinton and then about 45 minutes to oak harbor.

Right now I drive an 2 hours for anything. So.
shouldn't be horrible.

You'll be moving into a neighborhood with a COTW. Tim Collet (RED DEMON SS) lives up there. I'm sure he'll be happy to show you around, and he likes to help people work on their 5th gens.

Oh yeah,... and as Forged Reality mentioned, I'm Gary. You'll probably see me around. Welcome to the NW!
