Is there any preliminary information about event center and schedule for those of us looking to buy tickets / book hotel rooms before they get expensive?

Hi Tori,

The event center will be somewhere along this stretch between Elbe Hills and Tahoma State Forests near Ashford, WA. We're looking at access to some indoor spaces, but if we can't use those, we definitely have access to a campground for the event center.

(If you're wondering, 'Hey, wasn't this event supposed to be way over in the scablands near Spokane?"... yes it was. The BLM there requires a 6-month lead time to approve checkpoint locations, and we sent them our locations before the deadline. But then they came back later and said that they could no longer honor that because they couldn't get an archaeologist for a survey in time. Due to our prolific event schedule, we really couldn't push the date, so opted to find another location instead. Yay bureaucracy.)

Oy, bureaucracy! Well, tickets to Seattle, it is. Guess I know some places to stay down that way...

Thanks, Pink Socks. Most helpful.
