Visit to Oregon
 
Dear RV friends.
I'm Ariel Arielly from Israel. I've built the RV8A which has collected 300 flight hours.
My A/C is 4X-OAA No. 80295.
I'm about to visit Oregon from may 9th to 12th.
I just wonder if there is anybody whom I could meet with.
I'l be visiting with my wife Judith.
Thanks,
Ariel

Ariel,
If you connections go through Sacramento as some do, I would very much enjoy meeting you. I have a -9A here.
Regards,
David

We hope youíll be able to visit the Vanís factory in aurora Oregon while youíre here!

Where in Oregon are you planning on being on those dates? There's a good chance I'll be in southwest Oregon near North Bend (KOTH) around that time, though my airplane may still be in the Seattle area.



What all are you hoping to see/do while in Oregon?

Dear David,
Thanks for your invitation. I really plan to be in Sacramento during my visit to the USA.
As soon as I know the dates I be in Sacramento, I'll be in contact with you.
Thanks again,
Ariel

Waaam
 
Ariel,
If you are close to HoodRiver I strongly recommend WAAAM museum. Western Antique Aviation Automobile Museum. A friend and I visited 8 museums in the northwest and WAAAM was definitely the best. Unbelievable collection!

I would say that my original plan and excuse for going to Oregon, is the fact that I wonted to visit Vans Planet in Aurora.
Actually, I'm involved in a new "Eagle Nest" project in Israel - leading a group of students of building an RV12, so it was a good idea to see the RV12 kit in the production line and talk with Vans on some issues related to this kit.
My intention is to visit Vans on May 9th or 10th.

When we visited Vans factory in Aurora several years ago, we also visited the International Rose Test Gardens in Portland. It was worth the effort and offered a change of pace. Easy to find...on West side of Portland.

Hey Ariel-

Keep us all updated when you get in the area. If I can join you at the factory, or for a bite/meal I definitely would be interested in that! My project is in Bend (central Oregon), but I split time between Bend and Portland.

Not a ton to do right down by the factory, but Portland and the surrounding area have a lot to offer/do.

The Evergreen Museum was very good and has the Spruce Goose and an SR-71. Pretty area around there too. - TJ
