I thought since there is a thread about the Washington Gathering in regional, I thought we should have had one in Events & Gatherings... Russman said "post one" so I am.

I thought this would be a good place to start a roll call and get a good handle on who is coming and how long they plan on attending, but most of all a way for us to connect up and get some carpooling done. Very important to me, as I have no wheels!

But I have a few offers and options open to me.

I will start the roll call.

I will be there, I hope to make a four day weekend of it (but we'll see). I have not been in the greatest headspace for leading for a long time, I hope to get past that. I am bringing some trad gear!

Russman, I will be a bringin' a slackline! But you guys ain't got no dang ol'trees over there, and I ain't got one that'll reach 'atween to telee fone poles. Whatcha got ta put it up on? Jus how close is the neighbors trailer anyhoo hehe (practicn' up so's your neighbors won't know I been a livin' in the big city)

Seriously though how long does it need to be, and where we gonna put it up?
I have to go get a new one anyway, I sold mine to those Seattle boys at Smith (just left it up for 'em and walked away, I actually lost a little on it but I had gotten part of my moneys worth out of it anyway).

And yes I will be bringing some trad gear and Mick/rollingstone he's cool with basalt trad, and I ain't afraid of it so you will be climbing trad!!! Monday sounds like a plan, now who to ride home with...

I will be there Friday night at least through Sunday, maybe Monday. I will have all my camping gear so can stay at Russ' place or at the rock if your place gets too crowded. My head hasn't been in the trad game too much lately either, but I will be bringing my gear too. Rocks4jules, who you bringing with you? I believe that Micah (offwidthclimber) will be coming as well.

It doesn't matter if you hurl T, 'cause you can't climb with butt cramps. BTW, got any photos from Smith?

Count me in. I will be heading over either late Friday, after 7, or early Sat. a.m. from seattle. Unfortunately have to come back Sunday p.m.

I have a 60M rope, and a few pieces of pro and no lead experience as of yet. Hey we all gotta learn sometime

Hopefully, can pick up a few pointer's. Well actually I do allready know how to drink beer

Yell if anyone in the Seattle area wants to carpool in that time frame? Cheers lee

lee - possibly. If I decide to go, that is. However, I'd be intending to camp at the rocks. You?

Even if one of you plans on camping at the rock and one staying at Russ' house, I am sure that there will be a few of us running back and forth.

catwoman, I was thinking on throwing my tent down in the russmans's back yard if there is room, as I thought there would be BBQ and Beer. Not sure about the camping at the rock as I have never been there? So not sure the travel from there place to the climbing area?
cheers lee

Let me extend my open backyard...as far as camping at teh rocks...that is litterally what you will be sleeping on, and sagebrush. Some ash (Mt St. Helens type) and there will proabaly be plenty of wind blowing off the river and up the canyon (dust will proably ensue). That is not personal knowledge, I have never spent the night down there. That only comes from knowing the area and spending many other nights out under the stars here in the Basin. As stated before, there is only one Port-o-Let in the whole area and from the camping area...kinda a little hike to get to it.

Just providing more info about the area around the rocks.

The Russman

BTW...if you look at this pic and this pic and this pic you will get a little feel for what the area looks like. This was taken in the spring and not great outlying area shots...but still some pix.

Just to get this back on track and bring it up top... I have started working out really hard, so I have the strength for this.

I am hoping to maybe bring Krustykutie with me, we'll see how she's feeling and how the weather is going to be, she is not the healthy rockclimber type but she is tough!

I am getting so impatient I may have to come over once before the gig!

works for me man...just let me know. Sundays are the best for me and Bobbi....but if you want to try to work into my scheduled days off...we can try that too.

I was wondrin in The Kutie was going to participate with us...that would be cool too. She doesn't have to be a major climber type...That will more than likley be Bobbi's first time on real rock with a rope (bouldering at Smith not counted)

Let me know man.
Love to get out sooner.

I am planning on coming over Friday night, and should leave Sunday evening to get back to Seattle so I can, (sigh ) teach the next morning.

I am inclined to rack out in back yard, or if I remember correctly, Russ said his garage had space...

If you must know, I'm not big on slumber parties and I would really rather camp in what's intended for camping. Back yards aren't exactly camping to me and no doubt it would be loud, anyway. Call me boring, but I've just outgrown loud and crazy evenings and slumber parties. I want to be able to escape to my tent (which is not 2 inches from other ones) when I want to. 10 years ago, I'd have loved to pitch a tent in someone's back yard with 20 other people. No offense to anyone, I'm just not in that frame of mind anymore.

 Catwoman, I'm sure it will be colder at the rocks though. You did say the cold was a concern. Just looking out for you. One of the slumber partier's.

Yes, there is space in the garage...like I said about that....all concrete floor...I have a crash pad to pile on...but without any more..might be kinda hard

As far as slumber parties goes...Yea, I guess that is what it will turn out being...But I am going to think that even if we all decided to camp down there (Yes proaably colder) it would be the same way.

No biggy...not hurting my feelings...just seemed different Cat...Camping is one thing and Climbing is another
