Hey, looking into my first year at Sasquatch, coming from Los Angeles. I do not have the time to drive and need to fly so I am looking into the best way to get out to the gorge. It seems like the only options are a flight into Spokane or Seattle, and then a 2+ hour drive. Is there a better airport to fly into? i see some small airports in the areas but the flight all seem to be double the price round trip for me compared to Seattle. Then is there any kind of shuttles to sasquatch from these major areas, or any tips on getting there? Thanks...
The closest greyhound will get you is Quincy, which is about 30 minutes outside of the festival grounds. Last year, someone organized a bus rental but there isn't anything official. Carpool optons may present themselves if you hang out around the boards. Other than that, most people rent cars if they fly in.
I have no idea what the odds are of this happening again though.
My ride in '09 was kind enough to take this dude who has been roughing it to a billion festivals (came all the way from New Zealand!)
Well anyway, according to him, him and a bunch of other people took the Greyhound to Quincy and planned on just making the hike over to Sasquatch. As they approached Quincy, the bus driver said "You all are going to Sasquatch, aren't you?" Everyone replied with a resounding yes. The bus driver then, out of the kindness of her heart, drove straight to the festival grounds to drop everyone off.
Granted who knows whether that would happen again, and you'd definitely be taking a chance, BUT it IS possible.
Thats great about the Quincy bus, which it looks like I may do, as I would save about 80 bucks, compared to a rental car. And if the bus is full of Sasquatch people I may find others who have ways there, or a bunch of other hitchhikers. Seems like Sasquatch should set up some sort of shuttle, I'd pay for it.
But what about airport? Flying in to Spokane or Seattle? Seems like it would cost about the same and is about the same distance.
I feel like just letting I8 yell at you for this one, but I'll give you an answer anyway. Look into it. Many companies do rent cars to people who are under 25. Some companies still want you to be 21+ I know, so if you can't find one near SeaTac you might try Portland or Boise? Or you can fly into SEA and jump on that Bang Bus that one guy is promoting.
