Spring 2019 OR-WA Regional Canpout CANCELED

After researching further I've decided that this isn't a workable plan at this point - (a) June in the Olympic peninsula part of the world is colder and a lot wetter than I realized; and (b) July or August seems to be the best bet weather-wise, but ALL campsites at all the campgrounds I looked into are already booked for ALL those weekends. I'll try this again next year, but start the planning a couple months earlier. Sorry, everyone!

Kennedy Station at Free Times

My band is playing on Groundhog Day, as promised! It'd be fun to see you there. We play from about 8-11pm. Good food and drink (and the old-potato smell of a place that makes 1000s of latkes) to be had, plus great company. Lots of tunes you know, a few you don't. Unhip as heck. [more inside]
