Longmire at 8am, needing to change our reservation to an official permit. Will seek to arrange carpooling via email before trip. 

Beginning with a warm-up bike ride on the gravel, sometimes rough, West Side Road up to Round Pass, we will then lock our bikes, and begin the backpacking part of the journey, heading to up the South Fork of the Puyallup to intersect the Wonderland trail.  After gaining some elevation, we will head off trail to our proposed cross country campsite.  Depending on time, we will scramble Andrews Benchmark that afternoon, or the next morning.  Next morning, we will tackle Tokaloo, and then return and break camp.  If time and group interest allows, we will then descend to Andrews Lake, and take a detour to add on Aurora.  

Leader permission request mainly needed to learn about your backcountry camping experience as well as your biking experience.  Please note that I will be out of town a bit so may not be quick to reply to your request.
