    Hi everyone, wrong date in title 9.6.15 is the official date
    In an effort to meet PNW raptor owners

    We are all going to meet at 9:30am at Shell Station 4400 Bullfrog Rd, Cle Elum, WA 98922 This will be the starting point for the run.

    For those coming from Seattle area heading out 90 we can meet in Issaquah at 8:00a.m. @ 800 Front St N, Issaquah, WA 98027

    Fortune Creek trail
    Fortune Creek Trail

    I've been looking at youtube vids of the trail looks raptor friendly width wise with creek crossings hill climbs and awesome views from the top at the lake.

    Plan is to leave at 9:30am from the shell station.
    Stop at the ranger station on Salmon La Sac just before NF-4330 to air down and check vehicles before heading up NF-4330 leading to Fortune Creek trail (NF-160 on google)
    Should take about an hour or so to run up to the lake. Have lunch there check out the scenery then head back down.

    No forest pass is needed.
    Leave with a full tank of Gas. (only gas station is in Cle Elum before we head up Salmon La Sac rd.)
    I will have 2 spares, floor Jack, 5 gal gas, tow rope, 2 d-rings and my normal tool kit.
    Please bring your own recovery gear, tools, spare tires, food and water.

    If there are any questions please let me know?

    Hope to see y'all there.

    Anton

    Rather than the expected drive to XXX if there is a place in cle elum for the last fuel up/ meetup we might just meet there before heading up. Not all that interested in the XXX ford meet, just the Raptor portion :).

    We could just say skip the XXX meet and plan to meet @ 9:30 at Shell Station 4400 Bullfrog Rd, Cle Elum, WA 98922
    For those coming from Seattle area heading out 90 we can meet in Issaquah at 8:00a.m. @ 800 Front St N, Issaquah, WA 98027

    That way we get an earlier start and will allow other Wa Raptor owners a chance to come.
