I thought you had already packed your bags for the guilt trip? How can you pass this up?

2WD should be OK, but WSDOT has been very quick to pull the trigger on "chains required" for 2WD on passes this year, so check weather for both going and coming. If you go via I-90 and 97 you go over 2 passes, Snoqualmie and Blewett, if you go via I 405, 522, and US 2 you go over Stevens.
This site has everything you need: http://www.atmos.washington.edu/data/
To check current pass conditions and restrictions scroll down to WSDOT Pass Reports for a map with an interactive map of all the passes. For weather scroll down to zone forecast for Western Washington, and in that scroll down to Cascades of Snohomish and King Counties for a 7 day forecast. If there is a "winter weather advisory" or a "winter storm watch or warning" they may well be requiring chains on 2WDs. You can also get to Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center from this site which has better forecasts for passes, but only one day in advance. If you are going directly to airport from Leavenworth on Sunday best not to take US2 cause most of it is 2 lane and it gets backed up with ski traffic (97 is also 2 lane but it doesn't have a ski area or any stoplights).

With all the interested cat buyers coming to this event it's too bad someone else can't tow Nikon's cat to the event for the possible sale. Just saying ya know !

We were on our way home from Tuckerville today with the new addition and as we passed by Lynnwood Washington on I-5 we spotted another awesome looking Tucker. We exchanged a "thumbs up" does anybody recognize these folks and know if they've been invited to the jamboree?

We saw that they pulled off at the rest area and decided to follow them in and get a closer look at their cat. Glad to hear they are joining the Leavenworth jamboree.

In preparation for Leavenworth, we finally had an opportunity to do test run on the snow at Mt. Baker. Other than a slight hydraulic cylinder leak, it was very successful. Trailer is loaded and we plan to arrive on Friday.

We are less than a week away! I made a trip out to Leavenworth this weekend and it sounds like we have a good turn out so far based on hotel reservations. As you are all aware our snow has been slowly dwindling over the last month, Mother Nature is such a bitch!!! Bert's place at Eagle Creek is gonna be a no go this year because logging activity has turned the road out to Derby into mud and muck. I made a trip to our local watering hole "Headwaters Pub" and talked with a few old boys there about another option for us that would have snow on it for next weekend. We scouted an area North of lake Wenatchee that will give us more than enough room to stretch our Cat's legs and (weather permitting) give us some great views of the valley. It's a little further drive than Bert's place but much better road to get there so will probably be a wash time wise.

The Breakfast Saturday morning will be at 7:30, tickets for the buffet will be sold to you at check in. If your not staying at the hotel I will have extra tickets I can sell you before hand. I will have maps printed with directions to the trail head to hand out prior to us leaving the parking lot in the morning. Parking is going to be somewhat of an issue at the trail head so we will need to all work together to get everyone in and unloaded in some sort of organized chaos.

If you get there Thursday or Friday at a reasonable time it would be great if you would unload your cat and park it in the lot for the public to view on Friday. I'm coming in Thursday and will be somewhere close by (probably in a bar) if you need anything or have any questions.
