New to Portland

Like the tittle says, we just moved here from Tucson, AZ. After a long slow move (26' truck, towing XJ) we just want to get out and do some camping/offroading while the weather is great. Where do you locals go to accomplish both. I am hoping to find some relatively technical stuff within 100 miles of Portland. Any tips?

Thanks in advance

If you dont mind a little longer drive, you can go SouthEast about 200 miles to Bend and there are some awsome places to wheel out there
