Rally Point Notes:

Day 1
Out of Seattle head to near Lake Chelan, passing thru Leavenworth on the way out scenic Hwy 2. Only the very last 10 miles will be on gravel. High clearance / 4x4 not required. Grouse Mountain campground has 4 or 5 "official" spots but I'm sure we can fit at least 5 or 6 rigs. Backup: further up the road there is several more dispersed sites along the ridge. Sites overlook lake Chelan.
Day 2
come back down through Chelan (grab supplies if needed) then head down toward The Gorge area and make camp at the Quincy Lakes area. Again only the last mile or two on gravel. Many many campsites and room for plenty of rigs. Will try to get something next to the water. Many easy hiking trails for you hikers to see more stuff. Not sure if water is swimmable... it's farmland runoff soooo.
Day 3 head back to seattle easy drive back I-90
