Where is this located?Hey folks! I'm excited to announce that we are having the next Dirty Scouts Jamboree in a new and very exciting location! This year we will be taking sailboats out to Cypress Island to a free campground around the first week of August (exact date to be determined). We have three very generous sailors willing to use their boats to ferry folks out there, and the area itself is gorgeous! @iamwhatiam @EphemeralStick and myself scouted out this location last year and took the some photos:

I borrowed this image from @iamwhatiam's write up of the area that you can read here to get a better idea of the location!

We even were able to drop some crab pots and eat some delicious crab out there, and I'm sure we'll be able to do the same at the jamboree:

So just like previous years, this thread is to get things started on organizing what we want to happen at this year's jamboree and see who would like to get involved. We'll be pooling resources and money for food, booze, fuel for the boats, and anything else we might need. We're especially interested in anyone that wants to do any workshops or skillshares and folks that want to play music
So let's get to brainstorming this year's jamboree! Share your thoughts in the comments and once we've nailed down more of the specifics, I'll make an official thread outlining the meet up location, dates, events, and supplies folks should expect to bring for the weekend.
Where is this located?
I keep my boat out of Bellingham in the summer, but it's twice as far away as Anacortes, WA. Anacortes is the closest town, most easily accessible, for everyone to meet. I don't mind sailing down there the night before if we all wanted to meet there.
Cap Sante Marina would be the best marina to meet at because there is a Safeway literally a block or two away to stock up on food supplies and booze. A small dog park right by the marina to let anybody with dogs to burn off some steam off leash before the voyage. There's a few bars within walking distance. Hell, there's even a Vagabond Station food truck (a sign perhaps??) 10 blocks or so south if you wanted a greasy hamburger before heading out.
The only drawback I can see, is that the city of Anacortes has this deal where you are only allowed to leave your car parked, in one spot, on a city street for up to 72 hours. The Jambo won't be longer than 3 days tho right? There is parking at Cap Sante Marina, but unlike Squalicum Harbor in Bellingham where you and Andy parked when you visited, they charge nightly for parking.
What say ye @CrowTheBard ???
it's perfectly accessable to rubber tramps, you just gotta get on the boat to the island... unless you want to rephrase that as 'a place people can drive all the way to'.It sounds lovely, however I hope you select a location for future jambo's that are accessable to rubber tramps.
Every single Jambo in the history of STP Jambos has been rubber tramp accessable. Sometimes you gotta mix it up a little. Besides, is it really all that complicated for this one? Nobody else has had any issues with it. Park the vehicle, get on a boat. It's a nice area, the vehicle will be there when we return.It sounds lovely, however I hope you select a location for future jambo's that are accessable to rubber tramps.
We have a motorhome. But, I never said this plan was bad, just wanted one next time that we could stay in our motorhome. That is all.Every single Jambo in the history of STP Jambos has been rubber tramp accessable. Sometimes you gotta mix it up a little. Besides, is it really all that complicated for this one?
