I am going to round up some information that will be helpful for your pilgrimage here to Phil’s Camino. Thank you so much for RSVPing. Things are looking unbelievable!
Here is the contents of a post of a few weeks ago:
“ As of now we have 30 (now 50-60) folks who have RSVP’ed and I know of 10 more that are local mostly. So we are still counting. Fifty would be a nice round number for us.
This is a gathering of pilgrims and pilgrims are resourceful and flexible so that is how I am envisioning things. We don’t want to over plan this thing but a few things are becoming apparent.
Transportation: Uber to Fauntleroy Ferry Dock, West Seattle from Seattle International. We can pick you up on the island side. Or if you can afford a rental car please do that as we need a certain amount of vehicles. GPS on Vashon to our address: 24228 Wax Orchard Rd SW.
B and B’s: There are bunches on the island but need to make reservations.
Camping: We have lots of room for tents or RV’s. We will have a portapotty or two. We will have an outside kitchen for food prep.
Eating: We are going to be outside. Propane stove and bbq available. Fire pit available. We will have outside kitchen and tables and chairs. We will have paper plates and napkins and condiments. Food will be a potluck situation. Stores and restaurants on the island to pick things up. Will have ice chests. Need to figure out coffee. Food that we have from the island: sweetcorn, apple sauce, venison chili and blackberry jelly.
Activities: walking Phil’s Camino of course, some live music, setting up a few tours at various sites on Vashon. I am going to ask each Bureau Chief to have a little ten minute presentation and then there are other celebrities who will want to address us I am sure. There will be plenty of time for telling lies and tall tales.
Donation: I am asking a donation of $10 per day for your party/family or $5 if you are alone to cover expenses.
Helping Out: I am asking if you are coming for the four days if you would kindly act as a Hospitalero for one day during your stay. Things need to be accomplished and that seems a good way to make that happen.
OK, there is a bunch of stuff. Also, just found out from Annie some exciting news. Are you ready? We are going to be able to watch Phil’s Camino, So Far So Good on the big screen here on Vashon while you are here. That’s the longer new version. Love you Annie! She lined up a matinee on Saturday August 24th at high noon at the Vashon Theatre. The tickets are $8.
Thanks for being here loves, Felipé.
