Summer is almost here, time to start planning some outdoor drinking activities!
Here's the plan: We will meet at the party bus at 8:15am and head to Ape Caves Lava Tunnels. ( http://www.mountsthelens.com/ape-caves.html ) It is approximately a 2hr drive. There are 2 hikes available, an easy route and a harder route. We will be here for 2.5hrs to give people enough time to hike. From there, we will head to Cougar reservoir to swim, enjoy the sun and scenery. Between 3 & 4pm, we will get back on the bus and head back into Portland.
What to bring: Ape Caves is a cool 44 degrees year around. Bring sturdy shoes, a sweatshirt, long pants if you're planning on doing the harder hike, a flashlight or headlamp if you have it. You can rent kerosene lamps for $5. Also bring a swim suit, towel, and flip flops for the beach area at Cougar. There are no stores or restaurants that we will be stopping at, so bring a waterbottle and plenty of snacks, pack a lunch. After hiking, you will be hungry! Also bring a plastic cup for shots :)
THIS IS A PARTY BUS! That means, we can drink! I will bring two coolers (We will need more if anyone can bring theirs) NO GLASS ON THE BUS! So beer will have to be in cans, hard liquor transferred to a plastic container.
In order to pay for the Party Bus, I have to have a minimum of 40 people signed up and paid in full by the 7th of July. If I don't, it will all be cancelled :( If we have 40+ people, the $25 price will include two beers per person and I will probably bring some hard liquor as well. This will be adjusted according to how many people RSVP.
As we get closer to the date, I'm sure I will post more information. Let's make this happen together! It will be a BLAST!!!!
$25 per person includes: Trip on the bus to and from. Two beers/wine, snacks, water. Parking for both Ape Caves and Cougar Reservoir, $1 Paypal fee.
