Cool



It seems that the small town of Winlock Washington holds an EGG FESTIVAL every year on the last weekend in June!! I have lived in Washington for over 30 years and this is the first I have heard of it.
They also have "the world's largest egg" displayed in their town.

I tried to find an RV site in or near Winlock, however, the only ones, and only 10 at that, seem to be in Winolequa Park.

So from the above, you see time is eggstremely short. Anyway, here is the link to the Egg Festival:

I have emailed the festival committee and will keep you updated on their reply

Don't feel too bad Roger. I've lived here for over 35 years myself, and I never heard of it either. I guess you learn something new every day!

Talking

Would that be exit 63? Never saw it. If it is known, is it mentioned on FGRV? Of course I couldn't find any rv parks in or near Winlock. They do have their car show, but aren't there egg owners who tow with classic cars? BTW, I have been down and up I-5 twice this year so far, and have some more trips scheduled. I'll keep a look out for it, maybe even take a photo of it.

Roger:

The pictures on the town's website show a lot of chickens, which suggest the eggs are the kind that come from hens and not from a trailer manufacturer.

Worth scratching a bit more to find out?

I think you hit the nail on the head Donna. I really need to get out more!

Yep, Brian, it is the chicken type egg of which I speak. I consider our eggs to be a subset to the chicken egg. Our trailers are only called eggs because of their resemblence to a chicken egg.

BTW: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

(see next post for the REAL answer)

The answer, of course is: the egg came first. Dinosaurs were laying eggs long before there were any chickens, or birds of any kind.

Unhappy

Re: my first post in this thread:

I may have heard of the Winlock Egg Festival, may even have seen the sign Donna talks about, but I have only owned an egg rv for 1 1/2 years, and I don't think I heard of or saw anything about the egg festival in that time. Before then, I probably would have just passed it by, not being interested...

Unhappy Winlock and eggs

Drove thru Winlock. Not trailer friendly at all. Town is split by RR tracks with horrendous bumps crossing them. Can you say, "Bottom out?"

The Egg Festival committee seemed less than interested in any egg connection.

Picture of the "Winlock World's Largest Egg" with an even bigger one.

I see you've decorated your egg with a blue stripe, looks good.
What make is it ?

I was wanting to see a pic of that. That is a cute one!
