E. WA camping trip, april 26,27,28th inviting anyone!

Recommended Posts

for those who would like to tag along.. a couple of us are planning to go camping at the old blewett pass highway area, on the days of april 26 to the 28th .. a monday evening depart, (after I get off of work) then a wednesday eve. return (wed and tue are my days off for some reason)

the plans for fun are just to enjoy the scenic area of eastern washington, and leavenworth tourism! a little offroad will be involved.. any car can make it, lifted or not... we might go mountain biking too, if the weather and such permit...

 

but otherwise, it will just be a fun social camping/gathering! and a mild hatch patrol "beginner" shakedown (for those who are just becoming part of the fun as well as those who are experienced too)

 

the site i am plannin on, has no hook ups, and no real parking... and if it has not changed sence the last time I was there, there is no fees either (its real woods camping!)

 

so be prepared!

(bring your own supplies)

 

 

anyone interested? if not this time, should we plan another?? (there will be more!)

let me know on this post or by email if you want to attend!

I'd love to come! Don't have a suitable car yet, but I do have a suggestion... Plan the next trip for a WEEKEND! I know lots of us go to school or work and can't just take the beginning of the week off (But I wish I could!).

Austin did mention how he only gets off work on sundays, tuesdays and wednesdays... Its od. So he is going to TRY* to get off on monday so it can be a sat night - wednesday trip! That way maybe more people could come enjoy the fun. I'll be there. I dunno if i'm taking my car though. :-\

I could go on Saturday night. I'm busy Saturday till like 2 pm. And I have school bright and early monday morn.

 

How easy would it be to find by myself? I could just show up for a short while.

I'd love to go but I can't make it (big surprise huh!)

 

As a side note check this out: Two springs ago I was the first vehicle to drive over the old Blewett pass road. I broke trail through the snow banks...and get this... I did it in a rented Dodge Neon. Man I beat the snot out of that car 4x'ing over rocks and mud, I scratched the roof sneaking under a fallen tree and then I rally'ed it down the switchbacks. Rental cars are fun to punish.

If it's clear of snow, the road from Swauk Pass east to Mission Ridge is sweet. One of my all-time favorite scenic detours.

If you guys are there on the weekend I might make it up, I live in Thorp (between Cle Elum and Ellensburg), so I’m close, keep us posted on the dates.

BTW, it doesn’t sound like you guy are going to be thrashing your rigs, but if you find yourselves in need of some shop space/tools, I might be able to help out. I don’t have a stockpile of parts (yet) but I have just about any tool you might need including a torch set and welder. I can give you a couple phone numbers.

well, i checked out the area... it is soo nice- lots of room, no pay camping, nice dirt roads :brow:

and some snow in areas!

 

there is a possibility I can get monday off of work, which will extend the dates to include-

saturday evening departure, sunday , monday and tuesday morning (tuesday noon return home)

 

so does that open things up for people?

Austin, Matt, etc - we've spoken about this - but going to post so other people konw if its on sat. I can make it - and if I'm going to be there..... its obviously the place to be!!!;)

 

Anyone else on a normal schedule like myself? - up sat night - stay overnight - play for awhile - head back sun-evening.... Technically makes no difference, but some are more comfortable in convoys to-from places... Can convoy back home with normal weekenders like myself sunday evening till it comes to a north-or-south point on the I-5 corridor (south for me).

its a go for saturday evening depart! meeting location is going to be at carter subaru at 545pm saturday, at the oil change department, (carter quicklube) for those who are caravaning the whole way with me...

 

other meeting locations will be (along the way) Zekes drive in (the red caboose along highway 2 before stevens pass, not sure on arrival time, maybe around 7 or 8ish)

 

and of course leavenworth, we will be passing thru- just watch along the main highway for us to pass by!

 

otherwise, get ahold of me before saturday evening!

 

we will be camping till monday morning, maybe even tuesday if weather, and the attendance permits....

Austin, who all is meeting you at work?

 

Whats everyones general itinnerary? - Anyone else going sat night - staying most of sunday - heading home sunday evening to be back in time for school/work monday morning???? Heading back from somewhere like that (i personally don't konw the areea) with even 1 other car it's better IMO.

 

And could you shoot me some good directions - maybe some adresses to mapquest??

If i'm not online - call me anytime on my cell, you have the #

 

ahh hell - if you lost them, or anyone else needs them:

253 - 219-6722 : cell

252 - 759-6837 : house
