This was a quickie out to Salt Creek, WA (on the Olympic Peninsula) Goal was to try a new configuration of set up or what is and is not needed and to re-season 2 pans with Bees Wax. Also to “Test”? some new Happy Hour Libations.
I had the “Beer Exchange” (red porta-cooler) that is meant to try out new beers participatants found. Each person brings a 6-pack so others can try it. This time we also had a “Taste Test” for some Tequila. Mine was the Cazadores and Garrett’s was the Milagro. Shot glasses indicate the owners. After a taste test (A-hem, or several JUST to be sure) Milagro came in 2nd place as indicated by the two glasses bottoms up and the “Smiley Face” of the Lime.
Seasoning the Pans was a bear. Brillo wouldn’t even scratch the surface on the thick one and boiled water & vinegar for the rusty one. Went through a full 6” Pumis bar grinding away down to the size of a pea as shown.
Weather was clear skies with 1 day of full fog and one night of high Winds and Rain. I left a day early as Wind & Rain just don’t mix and it was time.
A lot to do out in this neck of the woods but the drives are a little longer than they appear.
Campground was pretty empty as you can see, max 4 spots used on the Tongue spit part. Access to the sound side was closed for a new bench pad. Any site along the bluff is good, when it’s not too windy.
A nice trip, I enjoy going out there off season. Too Crowded during Season so this was perfect.
