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!
After noting the success of previous Oregon-Washington regional campouts, some California MeFites suggested one down thataway. UPDATE: Here is a link to the spreadsheet to coordinate meals, equipment, etc. [more inside]
It's that time of year again! We've had two campouts (actually 3) so far, and they've all been a ton of fun. UPDATE: We've decided on Wallowa Lake in NE Oregon, DATE CHANGED TO SEPT. 23-25. Here's a Google Docs spreadsheet for planning meals, equipment, etc. [more inside]
THIS EVENT IS ONE WEEK AWAY! ALL SYSTEMS GO. Ok gang, let's try again! This event didn't happen due to weather, so we're doing it Oct. 2-4. [more inside]
We had so much fun at the last campout that we're doing it again - this time in central Washington. UPDATE: CANCELLED DUE TO EXTREME WEATHER. :( We'll try again in the fall. [more inside]
I've already reserved and paid for a single site at Trillium Lake Campground (less than a 90 minutes' drive from Portland, location on Google Maps) for the weekend of Sept. 12, Friday aft. through Sunday morning. I'm going no matter what, but I'd be happy if anyone wanted to join me. [more inside]
