Ok folks here is the tentative plan for our Subie Caravan and this is a draft draft so if you see something that you don't like or would like to change feel free to speak up. Don't just stomp out and quit. My goal is to accommodate as many folks as we can get. But as you can guess coordinating with folks as far away as PA isn't easy. They will have driven a long distance and probably be tired. And folks from Eastern Washington and Idaho are going to have to get up early too.
COMMUNICATION: Cell phones for long distance. If you are in Ellensberg and running 20 mins late because your radiator hose broke, call me and we will wait for you. ON THE ROUTE: FRS radios. If you are not familiar with these, they are similar to walkie talkies but with a 2 mile range. No license required, no monthly minute plan. A pair can be had for about $25. I am willing to loan some but if you can afford it I ask you to buy a pair. The link below is a good source:
RENDEZVOUS: Tacoma Mall parking lot between 12:30 and 1:30 pm Friday Sept 6. Meet across from the Krispy Kreme in the Sear parking lot. I figure this will give us time to meet each other while waiting for others to arrive. I will have FREE FOOD - doesn't get any better than that. Longview is about 1.5 hours away.
Directions to the Tacoma Mall
Southbound I-5: Take exit 133 onto S 38 st. Turn left at the first intersection ont Tacoma Mall Blvd. and keeping going straight until you see Krispy kreme, about .75 mile on your right. You will see us with a big Subaru Flag just beyond.
Northbound I-5: Take exit 130 for S 56th St toward Tacoma Mall Blvd. Keep left at the fork, follow signs for Tacoma Mall Blvd and merge onto S 56th St. Turn right onto Tacoma Mall Blvd. Keep going about
ROUTE: Tacoma Mall to Longview/WCSS site. Time about 1.5 hours. Arrive at WCSS around 3PM.
Nothing here is set in stone. If everyone agrees we can move the schedule up, leaving the Mall earlier or move it back leaving later. Now go ahead and poke holes in my battle plan. I will only cry for a little while - LOL.
