Directions to the NW Tribes regional

Two-Stage Directions. First, you want to get to the town of Silver Lake ... From:
Portland -- 26 E. to Madras, right on 97 S. thru Bend to La Pine, and left (east) on 31 to Silver Lake.
Eugene -- 58 E. to 97 N. to La Pine, right (east) on 31 to Silver Lake.
Boise -- 84 W. to Ontario, 20 W. to Riley, 395 S. 37 miles to Christmas Valley Rd., turn Right, & follow signs.
Redding -- 299 N. to Alturas, 395 N. to Valley Falls, & 31 to Silver Lake.
Then, after you've found Silver Lake (the town, not the body of water): From Hwy 31, about a half-mile west of the town of Silver Lake, turn South 11 miles on 4-12, which becomes Forest Service Rd 28. Go to Forest Service Rd. 064, turn right again. Cross Auger Creek, take first to the right, and you're home!


There will be potluck picnics to plan caravans and collect donations of materials for the NW Regional Gathering on May 13th 20th and 27th in Seattle Washington. The potlucks will be in Cowen Park at the north end of the University District starting at noon (weather permitting).


Take Interstate 5 north of the city to the NE 50th street exit. You will be exiting to the right. Continue on 50th to University Way "The Ave". Turn left on University and continue north to Ravenna Blvd. The park will be just across Ravenna before the bridge. The potlucks will be in the park near the swings and baseball field.


Please bring yourself, musical instruments, food and drink to share, donations for the magic hat, stuff for the kitchen (see wish list below), and all good things.

Much is still needed for Seed Camp and kitchens. Here's a Wish List. Tarps, rope, water jugs and filters, food grade 5-gallon buckets, first aid kits, hand saws, axes, shovels, post hole diggers, lanterns, candles, cutting boards, kitchen knives, bio-degradable soaps, scrubbies and sponges, TP, plywood for tables, large pots and pans, large baking sheets and pans, large frying pans and woks, peelers, sharpening stone and steel, serving utensils etc.

Nutritious food to share with the family. Fresh fruit and veggies, seeds and nuts, things to sprout, dried fruit, brown rice, whole grain flours, oils, herbs and spices, sweeteners and all good things. Buying in bulk saves money and reduces trash. (This food stuff can just go with you to the gathering but if you won't be going and want to make a donation bring it to the picnic).

Also if theres a welder out there we could use two 2 by 4 foot plate 1 metal grills and a 4 by 4 foot 1/2 inch rebar grate.

Anyway that's it for now ... more info. coming soon ... I check my E-mail almost every day and would like to hear from any and everyone interested or wanting to lend a hand.
