When: Saturday, August 30th 2014, from 12am to 7pm
Venue: Claudia’s Medicine Wheel, 1621 NE Blacksmith Drive, Belfair, WA. 98528,
Things to Bring: Bring drums, rattles, Shamanic Power Tools, food for potluck, and rocks to add to the wheel. Might bring a chair too.
Directions: From Bremerton take the Hwy 3 South exit from Gorst. At the first light, turn right (Sam Christopherson). Go to the stop sign, and take a left. (Belfair Valley Rd. aka Old Belfair Hwy). Go about 7 miles. When you see the Bear Creek Store on your left, take the next road (Bear Creek Dawatto) to the right. Go about 6.8 miles. There are mile markers. On your left, will be a large dirt road turn off with a large sign that says Blacksmith Lake. Take that left.
Continue on the dirt road for about 1.5 miles. The road curves about a bit, but the pot holes have been fixed; so it should be pretty smoothe. Go a little ways (about 1/4 mile) after you pass the motorcycle yard art (on the left), the road will take a sharp curve to the left with another road going off to the right. You need to stay on Blacksmith Dr. so bear left. After some bouncing about, and a curve to the right, you’ll see the number 1501 on your left. Just past that, the road will dip down. If there are clear skies, you’ll catch a wonderful view of the Olympics. At the bottom of the dip is a driveway to the left with reflector posts on either side. That’s my first driveway. I’ve put up a sign at that driveway of a medicine wheel with Bear in the center. You’ll need to go to the very next driveway that takes you behind the house to a large parking area.
From Gig Harbor, Tacoma etc: Take Hwy 16 west toward Bremerton. As you pass the Tremont/Old Clifton Rd exit, you’ll need to get into the left lane within the next mile or so. Take the Hwy 3 South toward Belfair/Shelton exit. It exits off of the left lane. When you come to the stoplight, go straight. Go to the stop sign, turn left and follow the directions above.
From Belfair, Allyn and points south. Take Hwy 3 North to Belfair. At the light next to the Safeway, turn left. Go to the 4 way stop, and turn right onto Old Belfair Hwy. Go just past the mile marker 3, and watch for signs indicating the Bear Creek/Dawatto Rd. Turn left onto Bear Creek Dawatto, and follow the directions above.
