Wildhorse Wind Farm

Rich Eberly (Tall Guy) has secured a MINI only tour of Puget Sound Energy's Wildhorse Wind Farm east of Ellensburg. We will be meeting at the Parkland Forza (11401 Steele St S in Parkland) for coffee at 6:45 and leave at 7:15 to head over the pass for the 10:00 tour. Check out PSE's website for more information on the wind farm.

For those interested, this may be an opportunity to check out the roads in the area, overnight 'somewhere' and return by a different route. Post your thoughts on what you would like to see and do while we're over there.

RSVP on the calendar so we know who will be there.

This should be a great trip - once we get over the pass, maybe there will be some SUN ... Since Rich is a PSE employee, we should be getting the "deluxe tour".

I'm sure we could make a stop in North Bend. Good excuse to find a restroom and more coffee.

Might I recommend meeting in Snoqualmie Ridge, at Steve's Donuts? Steve is a college friend of mine. It's a bit off of I-90, but what the heck, right?

If he's a Coug and there's a restroom, it sounds fine to me.

Yes, he's a Coug, and yes, there is a restroom.

Liz (and anyone else coming up from up north),
Meet us at Steve's Doughnuts at Snoqualmie Ridge. We will have to leave Forza's just before 7:00 and should be at the Steve's about 7:45 for a fifteen minute stop for P.B./Coffee/Doughnuts. I will adjust the event calendar for the stop.

I dropped Steve a note to let him know to expect MINIs on 7/10. When the date gets closer, I'll let him know just how many to expect.

Becki and I are looking forward to this trip. It will be an excellent opportunity for some great pictures of the MINIs with the wind turbines - what a contrast. I am thinking that since Rich works for the company, it should be extra special. Long day but well worth it for sure.

On a sad note, Fred the artist that did our web site header is leaving tomorrow morning for Louisiana, not to return. He accepted a new job there. We will miss him for sure, he has been a great neighbor and friend for the past 10 years. Safe travels Fred and family.

A note from Rich about the tour; long pants and closed toe shoes are required. You can change into shorts and sandals after the tour.

Hey, are kids allowed? I think Cameron would love this, if he can come along.

Rich says, yes, Cameron can come. The release form just says it needs to be signed by the parent if the tour participant is under 18.

What about Matthew? Is there a lower age limit, or do we still meet the "signed by parent" criteria?

Rich says the form just says under 18 has to be accompanied by a parent and the parent has to sign the waiver.

Side note - it's just occurred to me that the closed toe shoes/long pants requirement is probably because of the rattle snakes ... YIKES!
