NAVIGATION / ROUTE INFORMATION: In the interest of full disclosure, I have never done this trip before and am counting on everyone working as a team on navigation. This has worked well in the past, and I am confident we will be successful in our route finding if everyone comes prepared and participates :-) Please review and bring a copy of the route description and a map!

WEATHER: Check the forecast, and dress/pack accordingly!

CONTACT INFO: If you have any questions or concerns, please email me or call me on my cell at 425-260-5145. I will have limited cell coverage after Friday because I'm scrambling on Saturday and Sunday and camping at Eightmile CG on Saturday and Sunday nights. I will try to check email/voicemails on the way through Leavenworth, though.

CANCELLATIONS: If you make other plans or are otherwise unable to go, please cancel ASAP, so folks on the waiting list can move up. Registration officially closes on 9/3 at 5 pm.
