Pooling It To The P&C 1k Event


Allanon

Recommended Posts

Looks like Andrew and I will be pooling it down for this in my Allanon-mobile.

 

I'm coming from Monroe and Andrew is in Redmond. We have room for one or two more if anyone is interested.

 

With the gas prices the way they are, this seems like a good way to save and conserve at the same time.

Sorry Pep...didn't think to post the Cache Page...

 

Oh, and I'm sure Andrew and I are not above riding with someone else if they have a bigger vehicle... ;)

 

It's 130+ miles from Monroe to the event. Since I hate being late and would rather be early (especially if we want to cache on the way down), I was planing on leaving my place between 6 and 6:30...leaving Redmond no later than 7:00...earlier will definitely be better in my thinking...

 

Oh, and if the weather people are correct, we're looking at great weather next Sat.

Hey this sounds like fun. I'm right off the freeway in Bellevue near the Wilburton trestle.

I'm driving down as well - looking for some Eastsiders to 'pool with. Marcus, you're also welcome to ride with me. Cruiser Guy, you out there, too? I can also be a passenger, whatever works.

I think there is a convient Park and Ride lot near Marcus' You can't get there from here, either cache.

 

Coords approximately 47 36.167, 122 11.167

 

How about everyone that want's to pool down to the event meet at the P&R at 6:30am. We'll decide who's going to go in which vehicle and depart the lot at 6:45.

 

If there is another lot that's more convienent, let me know.

I like the idea to have everyone meet up at a P-N-R lot. The one you mention would be ideal for me. Hydnsek also mentioned the next one south where the old Park-n-Hoot cache was.

Phil&Cathy emailed me about that one as well. We can actually make multiple stops, we may just need to adjust the time-table. I can even stop at someplace like Houghton/Kirkland if that is easier for Andrew.

 

I've been playing a but with routing down I5 and it looks to be about 150 miles from Bellevue to the meeting place. What does everyine think, 3 hours long enough for that distance?

 

I'd say yes, but I've not driven that far south in awhile.

Ok... I wanna go too! :D

 

But my wife tells me I can't drive that far by myself. :unsure: Of course I ALWAYS try to do what my wife says ;)

 

I've already done the two caches up on St Helens, but that never stopped me before!

 

If there is room, I'l like to hitch a ride with someone... I'll even chip in for gas.

 

I'm probably the most northern of those going... I live in Lake Stevens, so I'll be watching for an appropriate place to meet everyone.

It is 1 hour 48 minutes from Federal Way (320th) to Fish the Horseshoe.

 

After you hit Olympia it's 70 mph the rest of the way.

Well that is true but you forgot to include any quick cache stops. :unsure: Actually I have no idea what is on the way down and near the freeway.

 

Allanon- The PNR in Bellevue is fine. If it is the one off Bellevue Way I am quite familier with it.

Don't forget to hit I-5 Drive Break on the way down. It can be done from either direction, but it is well laid out.

Yes, I found that one to be fun. And of course, if you're doing that one (or even if you're not) don't forget the nearbySmile Mother Teresa you're on Caching Camera.

 

And the very first Road Rage #1 on the southbound Toutle Rest stop (the other 2 nearby ones are for the North bound rest stop.

 

A couple of other easy ones are Community Park and Northwest History Tour - Speechless (which I haven't done but Menagerie is a cool caching group so I'm sure it's good).

Link to comment
We'll probably hit the ones between Woodland and Castle Rock during the event.

Yeah, I didn't list any of the one's between Woodland and Castle Rock. If there's time there are plenty in Longview or Castle Rock to hit.

 

Also, you left off

Carrolls Bluff and Kress Lake Beaver Work which are both on the same road as Believe on the Lord and Over the River. A quick 4 caches to grab when driving along I5. Just get off at one exit, take the road that follows I5, grab 4 quick caches, and back on I5 at the next exit.

Hydnsek also mentioned the next one south where the old Park-n-Hoot cache was.

MarcusArelius, Cruiser Guy, and I are meeting at the Park 'n Ride I mentioned [exit 9 off 405] at 7:00 am to carpool. I felt no need to drive a few miles north just to come back south. :unsure:

 

We may have a couple others with us, so we probably have a car-full. No need to stop for us necessarily, but comaraderie always welcome! We'll have FRS on channel 2 on the way down.

Oh dear lord! :)  I wonder if we are ever going to make it down there.  I can hear the chorus of "just one more it's just .1 miles away" already.

LMAO...There's a meeting to go to, and I HATE to be late...besides my name doesn't have the word 'Blue' in it... :lol::)

yea that true but you have to admit that gal had some tenacity. Assume my friends are a bust.

 

Edit 4AM!! dear lord man when do you sleep?!

Yes, that is true...she surely does... :)

 

OK, that means we can have a couple more...RWW, you interested?...Anyone else?

 

As for sleep...Last night I was asleep shortly after 7:00pm...so I could make my 3:15am alarm. :lol::)

Just let me know when and where. I'll be there with GPS, PDA, and bells on... well.. maye I'll leave the bells at home.

Looks like the Allanon-mobile is full then.

 

RWW, There's no need for you drive farther than you have to. I can meet you in Totem Lake at the P&R where Pepper's old

Forever Green cache used to be. Let's say 6:15 near the old cache.

 

Andrew and Kiersolvd, we'll meet you at the Bellevue/Wilburton P&R at approx. 6:30 and head out as soon as we're loaded up.

 

We'll judge caching on the way down based on time and progress.

Whoops..... Looks like I won't be able to go after all :laughing:

 

I need to go to the Mima Mounds event the following day and my wife is cracking the whip..... I only get to have fun one day this weekend :unsure:

Hey I just got the cachin van back from the consignment lot. It could hold all 7 of us if ya want to have a party.

RWW...Don't you hate it when that happens? Sorry you can't make it, but keeping up relations with the wife is probably a better idea in the long run... :laughing:

 

Marcus...Par-tay...Par-tay...Par-tay...

 

So Mark, who was that invitation open to? Don't confuse this old Druid...

That's what I was hoping you would say. Just didn't want to jump the gun as assume it. I was under the impression that Cruiser Guy had a couple more people...and that your quantity included them and not me. ;)

 

So, since I'd rather ride than drive, what time do you want us there?

Link to comment
Well I could pick Allanon, Kiersolvd, andrewrj up at the Wilburton PNR then head down 405 to pick up Hydnsek and Cruiser Guy at the other P-N-R.

 

That's what I was thinking anyway.

I think thats a good call. I just confirmation tonight that both Mudd Dawg and Steamboat are going and I need to pick them up. so I will probably drive even if there is room in the van. I didn't think either of them were going after I asked thabout it but ....... Steamboat is my dad so I got to pick him up on the way in Tacoma and Mudd dawg lives in north bend near me.

Sounds good! The 5 for my van will meet at the Newcastle Park n Ride just off 405 at exit 9 at 7AM on Saturday.

 

We still have a seat or two if anyone else decides to join the party! :rolleyes:

 

It will be cool to finally meet you all at the event.

The details are right here. Also farther up the thread there is a link for Park & Hoot...an archived cache with the Coords.

 

:lol:

There are two new caches and 1 totally reconfigured cache in the Longview/Kelso area in the last 2 days. Might want to make sure your PQs are up to date or check out the new caches down here if you're interested in grabbing them. Two of them are just off the road to dinner for the event.
