Cool, then I'm not quite as anxious about getting the shuttle options up on AvatarMeet right away.

Kaltxi ma eylan

Just thought I would blow the dust off this thread (*cough, cough...) to let you all know that tonight I rang up Willie Nelson and booked the shuttle from Sea-Tac Airport to the Sol-Duc campsite and from there to Seattle.

Seemed quite a nice chappy when I spoke to him.

So anyway, that's another jigsaw piece into the meet up.

Alan

Ahh good point. Someone else asked the same question Here are the details:

Shuttle to Camp:-
Monday 16th July, from Sea-Tac Airport to Sol-Duc Campsite, departing at approximatey 17:00 (departure time is flexible, but would be no later than 18:00 in order to get to camp before nightfall).

Thursday 19th July, from Sol-Duc Campsite to Best Western Executive Inn, Seattle, departing approximately 10:00 (again departure is flexible, but hopefully not later than 10:00).

Capacity is a 12 seater bus, 4 places taken so far.

Price each way is $30, payable on the day.

Think that about covers it?

Alan

Irayo Niri Te, but I'm just one of a team helping to plan the meet up. I'm also in the UK, so it might seem an odd time when I post, but I guess I'm about 6 or 7 hours ahead...Hehehe.

It was interesting ringing up the 'past', when I spoke to Willie! It was 12:00 his time and 20:00 my time!

Feeling a bit tired now though....bit of a tough week at work...Ahhh Happy Friday...ooo, I guess you lot in the west are still at work as I type this - Hehehe

Those same details have now been updated to the AvatarMeet.com website (here) and sign-up for seats on the shuttle is now online and can be done by simply updating your AvatarMeet.com profile.

Please also update and indicate in your profile if you don't need a seat on the shuttle, as that makes our job easier in make sure we have enough seats for those who do need them.

Kaltxi folks,

Hope I'm not treading on anyone toes here, but I thought I would 'gee' things up a bit as we are getting a bit closer to the meet up and have a go at listing some things that we will probably need for the camping trip. I'm sure there are folks out there who will have a better idea than me, but hey, we can get the ball rolling. So if you are sitting comfortably, then I shall begin! Hehehe :
  • Hiking boots:
  • If you are getting new ones it is a good idea to get them well before the camping trip so you have 'walk them in' a bit. You don't want blisters on the first day of walking. There is some guidance here: How to Choose Hiking Boots: Expert Advice from REI
  • Hiking socks:
  • It's a good idea to get a proper pair of hiking socks to help protect your feet from getting blisters. There is some guidance here: How to Choose Backpacking Socks: Expert Advice from REI
  • Small first aid kit:
  • Just in case you do get blisters or cuts and grazes. Some advice here: First Aid Checklist: Expert Advice from REI
  • Light water proofs (top and leggings)
  • Ok I know it'll be the middle of summer, but scout's motto: be prepared! You never know.
  • Hat:
  • Not just for boldy blokes like me, but just stop the sun burning you up.
  • Sun cream:
  • Well it is the height of summer
  • Insect repellant:
  • Ditto...
  • Small rucksack:
  • To carry stuff in - doh!
  • Water bottle (or two!):
  • Height of summer and you don't want to be dehydrated. I don't know if there are rules on drinking the natural water, but never drink from still (stagnent) water!
  • Thin layers of clothing:
  • You can always peal layers of and on to suit the temperature.
  • Torch:
  • A wind up touch it a brilliant gizmo as when it runs out you just wind it up again.
  • Spork, knife, bowl, cup:
  • Unless you want to eat out of you hands - hehehe.
  • Towel (large):
  • For showering and if we decide to take a dip in the pools there...ooo bring swim stuff to if you want
  • Tea towel:
  • To dry you cutlery...yeah
  • Sleeping bag:
  • Will probably need to be a summer sleeping bag. Apparently there is a difference
  • Washing gear:
  • I don't think you can bring pressurised cans onto a plane and I think there are limits on liquid volumes you can carry too. Check with your airline, if you are coming by plane.
There is some really good advice here on hiking and stuff too:
Expert Advice: Camping & Hiking


Perhaps some groups things that spring to mind are..:
  • Tents:
  • I guess we will need to work out what tentage we have available at some point and if any extra is required.
  • Eco washing up liquid - probably get with food:
  • Not sure if you can get it in the States, but over here there is an Eco range of cleaning products, such as washing up liquid that is biodegradable
  • Maps:
  • So we know where we are...or rather not
  • Compasses:
  • Could always you the one in your smart phone if it has one?
  • Bog roll...err..toilet tissue:
  • ....nuff said...unless it is provided - duno?
  • Fire lighting stuff:
  • No, not petrol/gas!! Matches?
  • Food:
  • ..to be sorted out separately closer the date I guess. Although it might be worth working something out to see sort of cost we are looking at. I think the last time I did it, we were looking at $7 per meal per person.
So there we go. That's a few things that spring to mind for me. Anyone out there got any thoughts, etc?

Alan
