Equinox 2014

September 5–7, 2014

Seattle Men In Leather’s Annual Club Run

Equinox 2014 posterSeattle Men in Leather’s annual leather run weekend, Equinox, will be held the weekend of September 5–7, 2014.  Equinox is a leather run for guys who are 21 years of age or older and have male ID.  You do not have to be a member of Seattle Men in Leather to join us for a great weekend.

Equinox is held at The Longhouse, a private, secluded, 20-acre compound near Redmond, only a 30-minute drive from downtown Seattle.  The Longhouse is a mile from the nearest bus stop (we will make sure to shuttle you to and from the bus stop if needed)

At the Longhouse, you will be able to experience a unique outdoor environment with your club brothers and other leathermen.  You will enjoy the indoor heated pool, inside and outside areas for play, plus indoor and outdoor hot tubs.  There are grassy lawns for sunbathing and lounging.  The wooded, rustic, and partially developed site features hiking trails where you and “Mister Right Now” can escape for a while.

Seattle Men in Leather will provide the meals and you can count on us to know how to feed hungry men.  The meals include in oyur registration fee are Friday evening dinner, three meals on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday, as well as cocktail parties on Friday and Saturday night.  Soft drinks and light snacks will be available day and night.  (And in a pinch, Albertson’s is just 1/4 mile away.)

The Equinox experience features BDSM play-based workshops, games, cocktail parties, and play parties on Friday and Saturday night.  If you are interested in meeting some of the Seattle Men in Leather guys, we offer a fun-loving and intimate weekend to make it happen.

Tent camping will be the norm during Equinox, but campers and trailers may also be brought.  A limited number of cabin bunks are available on a first-come-first-served basis for an additional fee.  If you are interested in an indoor sleeping space, or if you need to borrow a tent (we may be able to find you a loaner), please email: equinox@seattlemeninleather.org

Directions

The Longhouse is located approximately 15 miles east of Seattle Washington, between Redmond and Fall City.

Address: 23301 NE Redmond-Fall City Road (click for a map)

From Seattle or Bellevue take state Highway 520 to Redmond. Watch for the State Highway 202 sign — it is almost at the end of State Highway 520.  Turn right on 202, also called the Redmond Fall City Road/Redmond Way.  Travel approximately 4.3 miles.  At the 12-mile marker take the second driveway to the right.

The Longhouse Retreat Center is less than 0.2 mile west of Guardwell Storage and Albertson Grocery Store.  If you’re coming from Seattle and see these on the left, turn around — you have gone slightly too far.  Also there is a sign that says “Longhouse” as you go down the driveway.  If that sign is not there, you have entered the wrong driveway.

PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB THE NEIGHBORS — some of them keep very sensitive animals!  Again, if you go down a driveway that does not have the Longhouse sign prominently displayed, please turn around immediately, go back to the main road, and look for 23301 with the word “Longhouse”.
