I love all of the ideas brought up so far.

...find a "big damn tree" and go crazy on the hammocks.

Love all the ideas so far!
Here are some places I would like to visit at some point during my time in Washington State. Not sure how many other people will be interested:

The Channeled Scablands
Mount St Helens
The filming locations for parts of Twin Peaks

St. Helens would be a cool place to visit indeed, as would Mt. Ranier.

As for our trip to Olympia, I would like to have as much time as possible there...maybe three days?

Does anyone know if the duration is set in stone yet?

I'm trying not to blow all my money on this trip, but if I do, I'm sure it'll be worth it

nothing is set in stone yet. I would also like to spend as much time as possible outdoors with everyone. I think 3 days could be possible...

3 days 2 nights?

Sounds almost as good as 4 days 3 nights.

I'm not sure how many people of the group will come. a hammock tree would be epic though

Also, talking about things like Mount St Helens? Isn't that huge?
Don't make it too difficult if you want enough people to come along, I'd say that one would probably be out for me. Look at something that would perhaps be medium to low-type difficulty, I'd suggest.

I can do any of these. Getting off from work should be doable. I'm flying so I can't bring equipment. I have a six man tent I could mail, sleeping bags. I would have to bring my hiking shoes, rent a bike. A home tree with hammocks would be part of the dream. I used to do this all the time as a Geologist.

I'm taking a bath where ever we are. I can't sleep well if I'm dirty. I've taken one in ice cold streams many times. I had to hide my clothes because people would keep swiping them. How's the bugs at night in the summer?

Yes I now this is an OUTDOOR activity post. I will be lambasted for this. I love to going dancing, especially with a live band. I can do free style, swing, and Ballroom. I tried to go out dressed but they wouldn't let me in because they couldn't see my face.

Do you think they could pick out a blue guy with a tail out in a crowd?

Well, it might not be a problem as we may be able to hire stuff from here:
REI Store - Seattle, Washington - Sporting Goods, Camping Gear

There are probably other places too. I'm sure we will be able to sort something out between now and then in terms of hiking/camping gear.
