My wife and I will be staying in Olympia, WA for a month starting August 9th to explore the PNW a bit and we would love to meet up with some other Mustachians, either in a group or individually. We've met a few folks so far, and it's always been a fun experience. We don't mind driving a bit to meet people, since we do quite a bit of driving on our travels anyway. We're trying to get across the border to Canada too because I've never been and it looks like it will open to fully vaccinated people about that time, so we might even be able to meet some folks in the Vancouver area!

Feel free to PM me if desired. Hoping we can grab a coffee or a hike or whatever with some of you while we're in the area!

Hey Mr. Green, happy to hear that you are making your way up to the PNW. My wife and I would love to meet up if schedules work out and are in between Tacoma and Seattle for planning purposes.

Hey Mr. Green! Glad to have you visiting our neck of the woods. Thereís definitely good hiking to be had.

It might also be a good excuse to hold a more general Seattle meetup. I donít think weíve had any since The Itis took hold. (That said, Iím still a bit leery, what with the latest news on mutations.)

We had a smaller meetup for a bunch of us who had been in a book group pre-Covid at Gasworks Park one evening a couple of weeks ago.  The parking can be a bit challenging since lots of people like to hang there, but it is fairly central  and right on the BG trail, so many in our group came by bike.  There is room to spread out.  And it has one of the best views in town.

If for whatever reason you are in/near the Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, Richland) area, PM me for a random visit.
We may be on your side of the mountains about that time- very near Olympia, so I'll check on the master plan.

@markbike528CBX I just looked up where these cities are and, dang it! We came past there yesterday. It was a weird day and we ended up driving all the way to Portland from Salt Lake City. Unplanned. I thought we were going to stop around La Grange, OR, which would have been pretty close to you but it was so smoky! We're camping just west of Hood River, OR tonight and tomorrow night but that's not very close. :(

A weeknight meetup at Gasworks or other central and/or niceish park would be fun. I think given the delta variant, outdoors is best... and probably still pretty separate.

Outside for sure. My wife is currently 8 weeks pregnant so we're not messing around with masks off indoors because of all the Delta variant breakthrough cases we're hearing about. After a couple miscarriages it isn't worth the possibility of her getting any kind of sick and it affecting the baby.

Looks like we're hopefully having a little group meet in Seattle on August 20th. Details coming together in the Seattle meetup thread.
