So Check this. Fort Lewis College has 35 double occ rooms, two twins, sheets, towels, hall bathroom, no pets, no alcohol, at $50 a night. Email Raquel at to getcha a spot. More rooms may be available starting June. This is a first come, first serve dealy. College will be in session, could be a sweetly funny scene. The college is a dry campus, so be prepared. So far all the other housing options are over $100 a night! Dang. We are working out our host housing kinks as well, and will reveal soon. Us sswc09 organizers highly recommend this housing option for its sunsets, singletrack, location in proximity to events and fun potential. Camping in town is still being figured out. Junction Creek Campground would probably be the best option but its like 7 miles from downtown. Have a nice day and be nice to Raquel or else.
