    You can hang close to the group or have your own spot if you prefer.
    Plenty of options, no need to worry about that.

    Must haves
    Snow Park Pass Either Oregon or plate specific for northwest (DMV, BiMart, Etc...) If overnight your only options are annual (Oregon $20+fees, Washington $40) or 3 day ($7+fees) passes
    Frog Lake Camp(GPS 45.2225, -121.69222)
    Directions from Portland http://goo.gl/maps/oMH2Y
    Directions from Hood River http://goo.gl/maps/kYgbg
    Directions from Bend http://goo.gl/maps/Ps7dZ
    Required Bring Traction tires or chains
    Check ODOT Website http://www.tripcheck.com/Pages/RCmap...RoadConditions
    Weather (for government camp, Oregon) http://www.weather.com/weather/today...mp+OR+USOR0144
    Your Own gear (Some people have offered loaner equipment, make sure you have contacted them and made proper arrangements)

    Please Bring (if you can)
    Firewood (don't worry about transport to campsite, plenty with pulks to help with that)

    Sunglasses the weather is looking like it is going to be sunny.

    Directions from Lot
    Walk basically directly east, there is a road that does a circle around the campground. Your first turn is going to be a right after that you can go left or right. Generally we will congregate near the restrooms there is one near the front and two near the back.

    Anything else please feel free to adjust.

    Added about bring sunglasses the weather is beginning to look like it will be sunny the entire time, don't want snow blindness do we?

    Early? Sure, my leave doesn't end till next Tuesday. If I happen to fall upon someone's preplanned spot on accident, I don't mind moving, no, really I don't! I may end up moving anyway's as this will be my first time at this location, so I don't know exactly where everyone will be yet.
