Seattle Men In Leather's Annual Club Run
Seattle Men in Leather's annual leather run weekend, Equinox 2013,
will be held the weekend of September 7-9, 2013. 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.
This year, it will be held at The Longhouse near Redmond, Washington,
a 25 minute drive from downtown Seattle and a mile from the nearest
bus stop (A shuttle vehicle will be available for those choosing to
use mass transit.)
The Longhouse is a private, secluded, 20-acre compound where 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. Tent camping will be
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, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

count on us to know how to feed hungry men! The meals will include

as well as cocktail parties on Friday and Saturday night.
Soft drinks and light snacks will be available day and night.
The Equinox experience features workshops, Saturday night dress

The site is located approximately 15 miles east of Seattle Washington, between Redmond and Fall City.
Address: 23301 Redmond Fall City Rd.
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".
