Greater Seattle Area Tercel Meet & Greet

Post by The Professor » Wed Jun 06, 2018 10:45 am

I had the pleasure of meeting up last night with SynthDesign and as we were talking, he mentioned that there hadn't really been a big PNW Tercel meet and greet since the early 2000's. Well, I think it's high time we put something together!

I know we have a bunch of members in Washington, specifically on the west side of the mountains, where do you think we should hold this? My thoughts were somewhere East of Seattle because that's about midway up the state, but keeps us out of the city.

What do you folks think? Any suggestions?

We can find a lot of fun back roads to explore around Levenworth. Perhaps even a camping trip? I could not go until late in the summer, Sept?

I am down in Camas WA closer to PDX but would be keen on a meet up if it were in Leavenworth or Seattle...gives me an excuse to get away

Do we still have interest in this? Should we aim for late August/September?

How do you folks feel about August 25th or 26th? Any ideas on location? It would be nice to keep it central, maybe have a little show and shine, then grab lunch and a beer somewhere?

We will be in the Methow Valley the first weekend of September for my wife's work. However, Harts Pass, the highest maintained road in Washington state https://www.dangerousroads.org/north-am ... -pass.html, is at one end of the valley and would make a helluva place for a photo op.

Anyone interested in something out there the first weekend of September?

Ha! Piece of cake, that road looks in better shape than the one I drive home on everyday.

I just realized our wedding anniversary is around that time, perhaps I can talk my wife into a trip out there about than if we find a bed and breakfast to stay in. Though there is little chance she would want to drive over there in my Tercel, she would want to take the Lexus.

I have always planned to make it out to that road. Something closer Seattle area would be better for me & I don't have a licensed Tercel right now so I will be driving the 4runner either way

The whole point is to get as many Tercels together as possible, so I wouldn't be opposed to bumping things out again to late September/early October, if that means we can get more than two Tercels together!
