Unhappy

... Just as I click "add reply" to Post #13, the Owner of Brewed Awakenings says from behind the counter:"We're closing in 20 minutes. Please finish up. I want to go home."

Today is a busy Day! It is the "Official" opening day of the Oregon Gathering. No time to go back to Brewed Awakenings for more WiFi access; it will have to wait for Friday.

We will be Weighing Trailers from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

Sign at the Beach Restroom Parking Lot

This year we will be doing it differently. Robert and Eric B. have two Wheel Weighers in the parking lot next to the Beach Restrooms. Before a Gathering participant enters the campground to check in for the Rally, they may select to drive their rig to the beach to weigh their axles.

I will have one Wheel Weigher and a Jack Stand in my car. As the participant leaves the Beach Parking lot, Eric will call me on my cell phone to dispatch me to that person's campsite. After he unhitches, I will weigh the tongue at the coupler.

Last year we weighed 16 trailers at the beach. I figured on a similar turnout, but printed out 20 Weigh-in forms.

I feel like I've worked harder on this vacation than I do at work! In the afternoon we stopped making carbon copies to keep, so we could stretch our supply of forms. We ran out of forms, and had to use scratch paper for the last 3 customers.

We weighed 25 Trailers

Fred - Sorry for the off-topic question but do you weigh each trailer wheel or only one side and double it?

BTW, good job keeping us up to date on the your travels. I enjoy reading your posts.

Yes, you'll see when I collate all of the weight data in my weight post.

It is now Monday, July 20th, and we are in a KOA in Mountain Home, south of Boise, Idaho.

I took some pictures during the "Open Trailer" time on Saturday, July 18th, at the Oregon Gathering:

Open Trailer was divided into 2 parts: 1:00 to 3:00 for A loop, and 3:00 to 5:00 for B & C loops.

This is a path between A and B loops.
