Well, I'm glad everyone who's coming is coming, disappointed anyone who isn't isn't. Hopefully next time. If there are any lurkers please feel invited. No R.S.V.P needed.
To make it official we're meeting between 4 and 4:30 at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah this Sunday, June 1st 2008. (I say between 4 and 4:30 because I may be closer to 4:30 due to the school play.)
I don't think we need to get too organized about food, this isn't a Boy Scout outing. A little planning will make things easier, though. I'll bring some Costco dogs and buns, something non-fancy for desert and some beverages to contribute to the cause. If someone could step up to burgers and buns everyone else can just bring whatever strikes their fancy, condiments, chips, side dishes, whatever. First ones there try to grab a good spot, and we're set.
I'm also bringing a pile of maps I just got covering a lot of the public state lands, in case any wants to look.
I have a very tentative plan to bring my daughters and go camping afterward, probably a campground like Lake Easton, then on for a little exploring the next day. They may spend a fair portion of the get together in the van detoxing to a Barbie video. We'll have to see how the play goes before we decide. Thats one nervous 6 year old.
