I decided to wander over this way. Some of the posts are very interesting reads and quite informational. I believe I’ve crossed paths with a few of you on NWhikers like Brian Curtis, Sooperfly, and Borank.
Do you guys have any way of getting involved without having to commute for the Westside meetings?
I live in Wenatchee which makes it kind of a decent commute. Have you guys ever thought of meeting at a college? I take classes in Wenatchee that are beamed from Lynnwood, Des Moines, Ellensburg, and Moses Lake which allow 2 way communication via fancy speakers and such.
Anyways, I’ve spent a lot of time pouring over maps and guides as well as on NWhikers and have a great interest in remote, high lakes. Although, not quite as experienced as most, I’m looking for a little tutelage and I figured you guys would know the most. Most of my knowledge has come from research and a few trips, but nothing beats a little feedback from the older generations.
Maybe I’ll have to make the commute for a meeting or two and see what it’s like.
You don’t have to be a member to go along on stocking trips. You just need to get somebody to take you along.
We’ve found that most members who have a really long commute normally don’t last too long. The long drives both to the meetings and the hatcheries take their toll and interest tends to wane. That being said, we do have some far off members. One is temporarily living in Wenatchee, in fact.
