I wanted to let you know about this awesome event I'm
helping to spread the word on.
The upcoming Vegan Vacation gathering was inspired by
the great folks from http://www.veganfitness.net who
have yearly meet-ups. These meet-ups have generally
happened over in Europe and so Robert Cheeke of
http://www.veganbodybuilding.com decided to organize a
gathering based in the united states.
This event will be taking place from August 3-9 in
Portland, Oregon USA
The basic idea is to have a get-together of the Vegan
Bodybuilding & Fitness forum members to hang out and
meet in person, but everyone is welcome! You dont even
have to be Vegan or into bodybuilding & fitness - just
come out for good times and to see what this is all
While the Vegan Vacation gathering is still in the
planning stages, there will definitely be a variety of
activities focused on fitness, great food, veganism &
generally having fun! Most events will be free or
low-cost. Organizers will provide as much free housing
and food as possible. YOUR assistance and ideas are
Originally, the Vegan Vacation location was going to
be Los Angeles, California. For a variety of reasons,
the gathering location has been switched to Portland,
So Why Portland?
Here's just a sampling of what Portland has to offer:
- Portland is the #1 Vegan Friendly City in America
- Portland is one of the most beautiful and clean
cities in America
- Portland is one of the fittest cities in America
with all kinds of outdoor activities during the
beautiful summer for athletes to take part in
- Portland is only an hour from the Pacific Ocean so
we can still "hang out on the beach"
- Portland has more vegan and vegetarian restaurants
per capita than pretty much anywhere
- Portland actually has vegan soft serve ice cream
that comes out of the machines (kinda like a Dairy
Queen, but vegan)
- There are many forum members in Portland and around
the region so we are sure to have a nice turnout and
lots of local tour guides
- Portland has lots of other attractions such as being
located near Mt. Hood and Mt. Saint Helens, Seattle,
Olympia, Eugene, Vancouver & Victoria plus all kinds
of great wild nature, rivers and mountains.
- Did I mention that we have Food Fight!, the ALL
VEGAN 7-11 type convenience store?1?
