Subject: RE: Pacific Northwest Event -- Sunnycamp '02
hooray....I just came back from a weekend spent at the camp. It was absolutely gorgeous. We were plenty warm in misty weather...the fireplace is toasty. Just bring your warm jammies and fleece etc.

From Seattle..depends on the weather. If it is really stormy and rainy and poor visibility, I would be tempted to take I-5 to Longview, cross the river, go to Astoria..major roads and signs etc. to guide you..then follow signs to Long Beach..go through Long beach to Ocean Park, turn Right at Jack's country store.

If it is sunny and nice, I would go to Olympia, almost to Aberdeen..watch for Raymond cutoff. Follow the bay around and watch for signs to Long Beach or Ilwaco. From Ilwaco, just head north up the peninsula..either up Sandridge (103) or Pacific Highway..main road. From Pacific Highway, go to Ocean Park, abou 10 miles from long Beach...turn right at Jack's...go to Willapa Bay...turn left (north) at intersection...o about 1/2 mile..past oystering paraphenalia...past white house, past old shed. You'll see a grove of trees right past the cleared area. That will be it. (From Sandridge..just keep going until you get to this point..past the oystering area, past sign to the Ark restaurant). It will be hard to locate. I will have some flashlights tied to a fence at night to guide you and probably baloons or something during the day. If you see a motel called the Harbor View, You have gone a bit too far.

Also see the web site..there will be directions...I am going to add some because I have heard from some Victoria BC folks..it would be great if they could come down..maybe ferry to Port Townsend/Angeles whatever... www.angelfire.com/folk/sunnycamp

And even if it is just a few of us, it will be really fun. I brought some wood in..not much..I hope it doesn't get too wet....we can buy wood for $20 a truckload but getting it there might be a problem...but we'll solve each problem as it comes up.
