Cool Portland area caravan to Seattle 3/18/06 Bio-fest

Okay, so let's get a list together for people who will be caravaning from the portland area to the bio fest -- this can include people who want to meet up with us from other places, or on the way there.

I'm up in Olympia and would love to meet some people on the their way up. Time is really no issue as I do early morning drives very very often. It is about an hour and fourty five minutes to Olympia via I-5 from Portland to kind of give an idea of when you would be passing through Olympia.

Eeekk... We just found out we may be closing on a house on the 22nd, so with crazyness ensuing after, we can't commit to an early start just yet... We may actually go up the night before, as Carin apparently has some extended family up there.

Not sure if I'll be able to make it.

Tom will be at a meet in Federal Way, so if I go up with him, I will have to leave on Friday morning or Thurs. night.
Otherwise I will drive up by myself or with the 3 yr. old or with the 15 yr. old or with both of them.

Gotta figure this one out still.

But caravans are so much fun!

Where would everyone be meeting?

Aaron may be on his own for an early time, I started this so we could decide on a time and meeting place. a possible place to meet could be the jantzen beach shopping center, it's on the way for most (i-5) and given our travel in the morning, traffic in and out should not be an issue.

And once you swing through Tacoma - I have two ideas/options:
1st option - meet @ the truck scales in Fife (been there, done that)
2nd option - meet @ the new APP BioD location in Fife (just off the I-5).

But I'd guess meeting in Tacoma @ either location around 9am. Doors open around 10am. It's about 30-45 minutes from Fife to Magnuson Park.

You guys can figure out the rest as to when/where, but the truck scales works like a charm (though I'd like to show off the new BioD station ).

I'll be plotting with Heinz soon, but TDI parking may fill up quickly- I'll have to see what Heinz wants to do... we could offer some sort of pre-registration, with a small fee that goes to Fred, or maybe just first come, first parked. There will be plenty of parking on site, buy only room for 30 or so reserved TDI spots.

Great to see all the enthusiasm- this will be fun! The politicians are lining up, the expert panels are coming together, the $$$ to pay for it all is slowly rolling in, we have some food on site... all this, and a beer garden- and bands!!! Holy Crap- this may just be a party with a mission!!!
