Sounds good. Is the olympic peninsula too far for the PDX'ers?
Like up I-5 to Olympia @12, up 101 to forest roads to the West of Hoodsport?

Or something?

A week-end a few out will get more peeps turned-out.

no....half way. Olympia Forrest isn't half way
off course this is biased to the Portland crowd because...well just because.
we were talking more like north/Nor East of Mt.Adams.
trying to stay away from super slab I-5 routes if at all possible

Where's that plick RoadRash anyway I think he had a local that would work for all.

Bigmak was saying he had some property around Mt St. Helens that we could use, even said something about a freezer full beef, so maybe he'll cook for us too, you know, camp bitch

but I'm not sure if his place is halfway, Mt. Rainier might be closer to halfway.

Cool. call bigmak and get his attention

or as it's hotter than hell right now...the Olymic coast range is starting to sound pretty good too. Rainier sounds good also as long as I don't have to drink the beer :blah

any ideas on dates or should this be pushed to late September/early October when it cools down and the fire danger is lower? either way Soon while it's not tinder dry or later when it cools down and we've had a little rain.
I'm easy.
Time to get the maps out fellas.

That may not go over well at all. Last time I saw chop post he was all pissed off at some ff's over the cheesecake post and told them to go to hell and left. I don't think any of these ff's were local but I have not seen hide nor hair of him since.

re: Rainier campsites
there's a decent group campsite at Kaner Flats. it's north off of 410 on FS 19 the east side of Chinook/Cayuse Pass. (N47 00 37.5 W121 07 45.3)

The site is next to the Little Naches River and there are some nice roads to explore. (the serious folks can even head up jeep trails to Taneum on the other side).

I was at the Sawmill Flats campsite on Saturday (16July) (East side of Mt Rainer and would be a great spot for a G2G, the river with in walking distance to cool off and there are LOTS of mild to wild trails to explore. One of the toughest, muddiest trails I encountered was in that area, I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat, The KTM got her fairshare of laydowns, thank-god for good riding gear.

anywhere works

SE of Rainier is cool, haven't explored that area much. Over on the coast might work. PDX'ers could go to Longview and then head West and North to somewhere ??? (cue the mapman).

With reasonable notice I am in for at least one night. September weekend is better after kids are back in school.
