    Pacific Northwest SUbforum???

    What would it take to get a Pacific Northwest Subforum going?
    Nearby states of California and Utah have their own, but those of us up in rainy Oregon-Washington-Idaho don't have one.

    I'd like to see some APUG get togethers started, and the best way is through a regional group (as evidenced by posts on other region forums).

    Is there enough interest? If you are located in Idaho - Oregon - Washington and would like to get a regional APUG forum going, reply to this. Maybe we'll see if there is enough interest to get one formed.

    I've sent in a request months ago to the site moderators but heard nothing back, so that route does not work.

    How about a Cascadia subforum instead?

    I am glad that the farthest considered boundaries of the State of Cascadia (or as I have heard of it, The State of Jefferson) includes us here in the northwest of California. I must admit that I chuckle when I hear of San Francisco and Sacramento refered to as "Northern" California...but I realize that Bay Area residents, for many good reasons, prefer to think themselves as the polar opposite of Southern CA. But in truth, I see a lot of SoCal in the East Bay and San Jose areas, and Sacramento is, well, Sacramento. Central CA, IMBO, is a more accurate term (Central Valley and Central Coast).

    I do not know if those north of us would consider us to be a part of the Pacific Northwest -- or if they are mentally bounded by the artificially drawn Oregon State Line. We here in Humboldt County certainly do not align ourselves with any place south of Santa Rosa...and perhaps not even that far south.

    So if we were to have a Cascadia subarea, I hope that we in the far NW of California would be considered as in that subarea.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I took a Pacific Northwest geography course and some of the thoughts are that the upper portion of California are part of the PN region, I would say Vaughn is welcome. I would say so anyways.
    Now what? Do we share ideas of where is the best places to photograph? I would also say where is the best roadside dinners or best places to stay over. Do we arrange for gatherings?
    I'm up for all this.
