My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, big groups, and furry friends (pets).
Wildlife veiwing and day hiking on grounds. Host will support long distance backpackers and bicyclists and outfit weekend warriors. Immediate access to world class fishing and Class II, III white water.
Water: Water on the west end of the Olympic Peninsula is some of the purest in the world. This news from Olympic National Park who conducts several water quality studies from the Hoh drainage. Water for both the Creek Cabin and main cabin is from a 60 foot deep well. The last tests were conducted 15 years ago, but showed consistent pure and safe water. In occasional times of plumbing disruption the plumbing may go over to gravity feed from the Creek. There is a universal presence of giardia in surface water. Sinks will be signed as such if this is the case and bottled water provided. The hot water pressure to the shower from the instant/tankless heater is poor but the hot water will run until there is no more propane. Drink all the water you can on this trip. You are more than 60% water. If you drink enough, you can be over half Flying S Farm when you leave.
Fire, heat and stove: Free firewood may be provided, but wood smoke is a pollutant and hangs in this valley, particularly on cold, clear mornings characterized by stable air. By not having a fire, you can protect air quality and the back of your 67-year old host who struggles to get in enough firewood for the long winter. Please note where the fire extinguishers are and make sure smoke and CO1 alarms are plugged in and/or working. Please be extremely careful drying clothes with stove or propane heater. In case of fire, first use the extinguisher (don't inhale dry chemical), then assure your exit; then call 911 and report cabin at 2674 Dowans Creek Road is on fire. If you can safely do so, attack fire with hoseline just southwest of cabin; and try to protect the main cabin which is 50 times more valuable than the wonderful, old Creek Cabin. Otherwise stand back and the structures will burn to ground before the fire department arrives.
Safety and security: Your safety is the greatest priority of your host. The Flying S Farm is, by most standards a safe environment. But the wilderness interface environment presents different challenges and risks than you may be accustomed to in the developed world. For example, few of us consider the risk on the highway driving here. Many guests are exploring trails and beaches where one may get cut off or stuck with a dead battery at a lonely trailhead. Leave word with a responsible party about your intended hikes and, if you want your host to do anything, you need to furnish your plan, trailhead, license plate and vehicle description and what time you want what to happen, if you do not return. Most structures on the Flying S are left unlocked without incident. Your host is ex- law enforcement and prepared to represent law and order until the deputies arrive, usually within 30 minutes of the call.
Have a safe and memorable visit!
