2 nights and couple of days on the beach playing games, socializing,  exploring tide pools, eating food cooked on a fire, and chilling out!! (There is no set schedule once at the beach) We'll leave late morning/early afternoon Sunday 4/30.

This trip will be canceled if the forecast calls for 50% or greater chance of rain.

We will arrive between 1 and 2pm-ish and begin our hike and find our campsite somewhere in the woods close to the Point of the Arches.  Parking is at some guy's house, we'll need to stop at the WIC in Port Angeles for bear cans and permit (BEAR CANS ARE MANDATORY), then again to pick up a Makah recreation permit.

Bring food to share for a pot luck Friday and/or Saturday night!  I'll bring food to cook on the fire! I'll bring a game or two, feel free to bring your own.

**NOTE: Be prepared for mud up to knee deep on the trail, more info to follow...
