I may be working that weekend depending on if my work has hired someone else by then. If they do hire someone I should be good to go and be able to bring two tercels down.😊

OK, I just put the weekend of August 9-11th on my calendar. We can decide what we want to do, but at the very least I think a BBQ and a group drive on some forest service roads would be fun. Who else is ready to commit to this weekend?

I'm 100% in for that weekend. I think a quick camping trip would be great but totally agree that at least a trail ride and BBQ are in order. I'll post that weekend on the FB page as well and see if we can't get some more people in.

Prof, do you have a good trail in mind? I'm still relatively new to the area and would have to do some research to find something. I think it's probably best if we just pick something soon and set it in stone then whoever can make it can plan specifics.

I can start to do some research. The mountains around here are full of logging roads and forest service roads, so you pretty much just need to know where the road starts and finishes. There was one road I've eyeballed in the past that connects Snoqualmie Pass to Stevens Pass, but that might be an all day drive offroad, I've never attempted it.

I think I have that weekend available, if so, we did a meet up and BBQ at my house one year, we can do it again. I have lots of room (5 acres) and a big house/property. We can do a big pit BBQ over an open fire.

I am on the mt. loop hwy that is a fun drive through the north Cascades area (Darrington to Granite falls) with some interesting side trips on short hikes. we can also detour over to North Cascades National park (no fee for day use), drive up the Cascades pass road, an easy 3 mile hike takes us to an old look out station with a fantastic view of the north cascades.

picture is a view of north Cascades, about an hour drive from our home, and an hour hike to that view. some trail heads are closer as well.

Just a bump on this thread as it's getting closer.

Petros, is this a definite plan?

Alternatively there is some light off-roading in the dry lake bed of Lake Kechelus up at Snoqualmie Pass. My wife and I did some off-roading in her Forester and it would be central and not too far for people form the North/East/South/West.

Whatever works!

It looks like the other thing I was considering for that weekend got canceled. so I am wide open. Aug 6,7 or 8. I would not rather spend all three days.

do you want to do an overnight, like a friday evening fire/campout, and drive around on saturday? or just do a long day tour of the N. Cascades loop on Saturday or sunday? what day?

I had to check with my wife, and it looks like Aug 16-17 would be better for me.

I can make 9th-10th work okay, but I will have to do some negotiations to clear that weekend.

who all is coming? can we get a count? and what fri/sat works best?

I will be out of town the weekend of the 17th, but I will be around the weekend of the 10th. If it needs to split into two weekends, we can do that too.

One day we'll get this planned out far enough in advance, hahahaha!

I'm in for either weekend...just let me know which.

On a side note...I saw a beautiful 85 yesterday in traffic with a little old lady driving it. I pulled up right next to her at a red light and told her "nice car!" I don't think she even noticed I was in one as well. I asked her if she wanted to sell it to which she quickly replied, "nope!" Then my roommate was down in Bremerton and saw another one yesterday as well. I'm wondering if they're on the forum.
