I second the SLO suggestion. you can stay in my backyard, wifi is free...I'll even loan you the canoe, we're 100 yards from the dock, you can paddle across the bay, walk across the sandspit, and pitch your tent (not exactly legally) overlooking the waves at the south jetty...just can't make a fire out there, might attract attention. If you pulled the canoe up high enough, it will be there for you in the morning to come back, haha. Not a heap of climbing but plenty of great stuff to do around here, great place to be. dunno how the messaging system works here, so feel free to drop a text if you need help with where to stay (actually dead serious about the backyard, also have a futon in the office).
Wow, HeschMonster, that's a super generous offer! We love SLO, and I always thought that if I won the lottery, which I don't play, that would be on a short list of places to live. Kinda far from the mountains, tho. Yeah, love the place. I think we're keen on a more climbing-centric outing, but maybe a rain check? We do have a cute 30 lb cattle pup that is kinda surgically attached.
- Skaha (check when the Ironman is?)
Washington Pass / Mazama (if wifi available in Mazama. otherwise, have to shuffle further downstream the Methow)
Back of the Lake
Limestone out of Ely, NV? (and close to Great Basin NP too, for some all around adventure)
City of Rocks, ID (a bit of a drive to town)
Slocan, BC (some cragging outside of town, and for full day climbing, car-to-car in the Valhallas).
A few years ago I did a trip starting in Seattle, and most of the locations would have wifi nearby:
Valhallas, BC (out of Slocan)
then back to Seattle. Would have been nice to add Yak Peak out of Hope, BC too.
Some cool ideas here. Dang, haven't been to Leavenworth in about 25 years. Fun place. Skaha is very high on my list, too. Maybe this fall. Freakin' oven in there now. I think we've settled on Ten Sleep. RV park in town, then drive up to crags for the important stuff.
