We're planning a mini road trip to Frenchman Coulee and Smith Rock starting on Oct 11 and we’d love to have company for all or part of it if anyone wants to join us. We’re timing the trip so that we’re climbing at Smith Rock during the week instead of on the weekend when it tends to be crowded. We’re retired, hence the leisurely pace of travel. Unfortunately we can't offer to share transportation because we're going to be camping out of our VW Golf and it's going to be crammed full with the two of us and our camping and climbing gear. Here’s our current plan: Thursday, Oct 11 – Drive to Vantage, Washington. Stay at the Wanapum State Park campground just south of Vantage for 3 nights ($35 per night for campsite than can accommodate 2 tents 1 vehicle - $10 per night for an extra vehicle). Friday, Oct 12 & Saturday, Oct 13 – Climb at Frenchman Coulee Sunday, Oct 14 – Drive to Smith Rock State Park. Stay at the state park campground for 6 nights ($8 per person per night). Monday, Oct 15 to Friday, Oct 19 – Climb at Smith Rock. Saturday, Oct 20 – depending on our energy levels and the weather we’ll either drive straight back to Vancouver or head back to Vantage for another day or two of climbing at Frenchman Coulee and then drive home on either Monday, Oct 22, or Tuesday, Oct 23.
