I won't be able to make this one, but does anyone know if there will be a Maryhill Loops road event this year? I am suffering from twisty withdrawal.

We reserved cabin #4 long ago not knowing whether we'd be able to go or not. Turns out we will not be able to make this event. If anyone would like to claim the cabin left me know and I'll let the resort know versus canceling.

i would love to take that cabin off your hands.  Are there separate bedrooms or are all the beds in one area? And what was the daily rate they had you on. $135 a day?

I'll have to have a meeting with my queen bee first though.

Here is a link photos of the cabin http://www.oceanspraybeachresort.com/Photos.php

I can't remember the exact rate quoted at the time of booking as it was some time ago, but $135 sounds about right.

Let me know if you'd like to take the room and I'll call them and see how they'd like to work it to get your CC & info. I'd like to get that done next week.

Cabin #4 is officially available for the weekend. Sorry we won't make it. I'm sure it'll be a blastsure.

Sounds like a great time!

Hi Bruce and Stacie,

    Donna now has a surgery scheduled for shortly prior to the drive, so room 7 is now open. When we called Diane, she asked me to let everyone know that room 4 is also available.   Hope there will be a sequel some year in the future, this sounds like fun.

Thanks,   Les.

What a difference a day makes.  We did our pre-run today and were going to do some updating on the rooms, but you all took care of it!  Reiterating Cabin 7 is available.  (We saw Cabin 4 today when we were there.  It's a nice one!)

We'll update the top post in the next few days.

There are a few of us from Tacoma and Bremerton going on this drive.  It doesn't make sense to drive north to The Emerald City just to turn around and drive south through The City of Destiny.
Drive
We should pick a south end rally point where we can meet up and then swoop in behind everyone else when they come down I-5.

We would miss the Drivers Meeting, but we can look at each other and say "Don't use your front or rear fogs!"

Stacie,

I was thinking the south-end folks could meet at the 512 Park and Ride at an appropriate time and then if you call my cell as you round the bend by the Tacoma Mall we could roll out of the lot and onto I-5 and slip right in behind you.  That way there isn't an added stop (unless a stop is needed by the group at that point).

Sooz and I have Cabin number 9, and GingerSpice will be taking our fold out couch.

Also, I checked out the tide chart, looks like we'll be driving on the beach at a 5' high tide, 11:06am
we might want to drive on the beach Saturday.  We could scope out what 5' tide looks like Friday night as we arrive (6:15pm)



Sixate, we'll be starting in Seattle and will post a Glympse link so y'all can track us live on a map as we head south.


From what I can tell, this is the current list of occupancy:

Cabin bedrooms beds max occupancy reserved by

1 1 1 queen 2 Steve and Sheryl

2 1 1 queen 2 Julzmini

3 1 1 queen 2 unknown

4 2 1 queen 6 SAMSON/Rushby's
2 double

5 2 1 queen 6 Sixate
2 double

6 2 1 queen 4 unknown
1 queen

7 2 1 queen 6 OPEN / AVAILABLE
2 double

8 2 1 queen 6 unknown
2 double

9 1 1 queen 4 Kuren & Sooz +  GingerSpice
1 hide-a-bed

10 1 1 queen 2 valvashon

The top post has been updated with departure location, revised schedule and local information.  Here is the list of attendees THAT WE KNOW OF AT THIS TIME.  This puts us at 9 cars among the 8 cabins whose occupants we know. 

If you do not see your name on this list, or you are the Mystery Person in Cabin 7, or you plan to motor with us and stay elsewhere in Westport, we need to hear from you in order to know how many cars to expect at either the Federal Way departure point or the rolling meet up at the Park and Ride.  We don't want to leave anyone behind!

Cabin 1 - Steve and Sheryl
Cabin 2 - David
Cabin 3 - Hot Chocolate (Boones)
Cabin 4 - SAMSON (Rushbys)
Cabin 5 - MacCauls/Wilds - 2 cars
Cabin 6 - Sixate (Bryan and Elizabeth)
Cabin 7 - MYSTERY PERSON
Cabin 8 - Not from PSMINI (Standing reservation aka Our New Best Friends)
Cabin 9 - Kuren & Sooz 
Cabin 10 - Valvashon (Bruce, Stacie, Elliott, Hazel) 

Thanks!
Bruce and Stacie

We are consulting with the locals about the best beach route and the tides.

Logistically, from the West Olympic Peninsula, it works best for us to meet up in the Olympia area as you all come through. We can follow on Glympse and catch the group around the HWY 101 and SR 8 interchange... if that is the route planned for getting to Grayland.

Yes, the route to Westport will take us through the US 101/Hwy 8 interchange.  We anticipate driving through there at approximately 5:15pm, based on our most recent test drive in Friday night, rush hour traffic.

The official start of the drive is the driver's meeting at 3:00pm in Federal Way.  We'll roll out at 3:15pm. Folks are welcome to connect on the way to Federal Way and we'll see you there!

Sooz and I are going to leave from Seattle at 1:45 and take a slow way down.  If anyone wants to meet us at the Spaghetti Factory on Elliot at 1:40 and drive the long way with us, here is the route we're going to take http://goo.gl/VXTciO
We should arrive at the official starting area around 2:40 (so 20 minutes buffer)  I will post a Glympse at 1:30-ish in this forum.

Hey Kuren,

Would it be easier for folks using Glympse if I created a Facebook event and you posted it there?

Thanks,
