Those participating in the campout may want to form carpools from the Dungeness Recreation Area Campground Group Site.  Will update this via email the week before if needed.

Note that I tend to hike at the higher end of the CHS1 range, but will adapt to the needs of the group. 

For those who are interested, let's stop for dinner at Westside Pizza in Port Angeles after the hike.
