While Washington may not be as big as Texas, you still need to be a little more specific that that.

Whereabouts will you be? East side/Spokane area? SW/Vancouver? Seattle?

Although with that avatar, did you get a new job in the Pullman area? :)

Scott save yourself a few miles and think about Idaho...specifically the Boise area..you can still hit the Washington trials, a few of the Montana ones,and obviously the Idaho ones...it does get a little warm in the valley but it's a "dry" heat, unlike what you are used to in West Texas..between the Boise,Snake, and Payette rivers there is always some very cool water to wet the dogs down, or pay the fee and train at Jeff Webbers place

Glad to see a fellow Red Raider on the forums...if Lubbock isnt dry heat, not sure what is! Only place you can get a sandblast and a sunburn while going to get your mail.

I don’t know if they are still in business, but Ed and Genie in Kittitas, on the east side, had provisions for camping and training. Great folks!! I do miss them being in the state since 81. I hope to get back there soon and say hello....:)

Right, especially if you're partial to the color brown and hate trees :rolleyes:

Northern Idaho is GORGEOUS. Especially the Coeur d'Alene area. Lot's to do in the area besides dog training as well.
