Washington State Skoolies:

Hey Everyone,

Like a number of folks here, I really wanted to make it to Skoolie-Palooza down in AZ. Unfortunately, like a number of others, I am not going to be able to get away.

Given that we have not seen the North side of freezing in a few days and don't expect to for a few more I was REALLY looking forward to being warm......


Given that there is no way to engineer the warmth that our friends will enjoy down in AZ maybe we could at least have some kind of meet up to share knowledge, stories and resources?

Any interest in a get together? If so, I would be happy to give a hand putting it together.

What do you all think?

NW Skoolie Rendezvous??

I'll start looking at potential sites.

I lean towards spots in Snoqualmie-Baker National Forest because I am more familiar with that area.

I see looking at the State Parks maps that there are quite a number of campgrounds that would support an event like this South of Tacoma and down towards Olympia.

Another though is out in the Sequim area due to the better than average weather.

What do you all think?

Yes! The nicer the weather gets, the more into this idea I am. I currently prioritize working on the bus over taking trips//taking Sat/Sun off takes some work for me. But hopefully by the time the weather gets warm the bus will be more ready for some trips and critique from our fellow skoolies.

Also I have cheap beer/food connections if anyone wants to put in orders.

What do you all think about general location?

Sequim has it's attractions given the local climate but is a bit of a trek for some.

Other than that, there are plenty of spots along the I-5 corridor.

The Olympic National Forest is at the top of my "bus trip list" for awhile now. So Sequim sounds great to me! But I don't think I will be ready any sooner than May. Probably.

Hey Taolik,

Don't make me look bad. My bust wont be finished. I will likely have an ice chest and a blow up mattress....

I was eyeballing dates in April-May.

Also, take a look at this place: Campground

Looks like it has potential.

Any other thoughts regarding dates & locations?
