Hi - I am in the Northwest also. Not a female, but still looking for like minds in the area. I have replied to similar posts for the past several years with no responses. There seems to be a few that need a focal point to connect. This looks like a pretty active sight, (better than Craigslist) so might be all we have.
Driving for the Pot Lick Dinner idea, isnt working. So be nice if there was more location specific groups here, besides just the US.
