Postby Terracar » Fri Sep 07, 2012 8:02 pm

We would like to invite you all to join us on our cruise to the Johnston Ridge Observatory / Mt. St. Helens. I have posted some details below along with route maps. If you are interested, feel free to post within this thread. I'll add your name to the roster on our side and I'll keep this thread up-to-date with any changes. One side note, we will need a confirmation that you are going by September 29 if you are listed as a "maybe".

Thanks!

I won't be able to make it because i have a wedding to go to the night before and I know I'll be drinking the night away so I'll be waking up late and hopefully not hungover. But I'm actually headed there tomorrow in my mr2. Lived here 31 years and I've never been. so going to take a little road trip tomorrow. =D You guys have fun and take lots of pics!

The cruise was fantastic. The weather was perfect and the 5 of us did the cruise. The FLC had their exhibits closed for the season, so that sucked. We were able to locate a herd of elk down in the valley at JRO. We finished with some good food and some good conversation.
