I plan on spending the night in Vancouver/Portland before and after the ride and possibly extending my stay after the ride. Amtrak offers bus/train service from Everett/Seatle to Vancouver for $38 +$5 bike.
BIKES Club members are invited to participate and carpool. Registered so far from the BIKES Club:

I'm signed up for this tour. I live in North Skagit County. I'm looking for companions for the to-and-fro to PDX. If anyone is interested in carpooling, let me know. Amtrak has train service to Everett, but it's only showing bus services to points North. JohnTriggiani@hotmail.com

He is driving down early Friday
This looks like a great ride. Thanks for bringing it to the BIKES Club attention and promoting self contained bicycle touring.
