A few of us are going to make the trip from Stevenson, WA to Ellensburg, WA on September 7-9th, 2018 on the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route. It *should* be an easy, albeit long trip. Expected mileage will be about 240 miles not including travel to the start and travel to your home.
10:00- Meet at a location (TBD) in Stevenson, WA for fuel and last minute supplies.
~15:00- Locate a suitable location to remain overnight. Exact location to be determined en route.
07:30-On the trail
~12:00-Lunch at a suitable location on the trail
~17:00-Locate a suitable location to camp overnight
07:30- On the trail
~15:00-17:00- Arrive in Ellensburg, WA
Depart for home
This is a *VERY* rough schedule. We will make group decisions on the trail as we encounter them.
Semper Gumby... Stay flexible.
- We will take appropriate rest breaks and possible side trips (Ice caves?) as needed.
- You are welcome to join us for all, or portions of the trail.
- The lead and tail vehicles will have radio communications. Likely primary freq will be 146.460. Alternate will be 146.520. Contingency will likely be on local repeaters if needed.
We have 2 vehicles and 5 souls committed at the moment. We'd like to limit it to 3-5 vehicles. We possible will have tagalongs that may want to ride with others, so please let me know if you have space available and are willing to host someone in your vehicle.
Expected trail conditions will be good, but dusty. Possibly a few wet spots and a few skinny (brushy) spots. Trail should be clear. 4x4 should not be needed. There's a number of rough spots. Weather should be good, but expect anything from cold to rain and even snow at higher elevations. Nights may get down to freezing at night.
