Talking

That's $.016 American. He, he.

My only problem with Taidnapam, is the remoteness. I don't think there is a heck of a lot to do in Morton nor Glenoma. Mt Rainier Park and Mt St Helens are close and would be good day trips for those interested. I am not able to find out just what is available in Taidnapam itself...fishing, swimming and boating in Lake Riffe as well as hiking and horseshoes.

I guess I was spoiled by camping at Fort Worden last year, with the gun emplacements, museums, beach and lighthouse to explore as well as Port Townsend with its interesting shops. But then again Fort Worden is known for its wild parties and indeed we did leave early because of a raucous wedding party in the campsites around us.

Another factor is the location and size. Birch Bay is remote for persons in the southern part of the state whereas Nine Mile is remote for the western part.

I think we all will be able to make a better judgement AFTER the gathering in June.

The wife just pointed out that our church used to have a yearly camp-out at Grayland and after a while, the park wouldn't allow the organizer to reserve blocks of sites.

well that it is! but a beautiful park.. I have gone there just for my sunday drives and it is beautiful.... I may take a drive here soon to see if the 'new part of the park will be open and if it has full hookups too...
Maybe when we are there we can take discuss if the group would like to stay at the same park or go someplace else...

One up the road about 5 miles from there is called Bud Allen Park.. its also a nice park. I have of brochures on alot of the parks I have picked up...

Only thing i dont think they offer a Sr discount to anyone... but one can drive and seek it out to see if they like it...
just a suggestion...

Okay, as far as same place, I say, lets see how this park works out and then deside if it is good for returning.

BUT here are two things I noticed while previewing things to do while camping on their website:
http://www.ci.tacoma.wa.us/power/parksandp...dnapam_park.htm

Camping fees

$26 – Water/electric and sewer hookups
$25 – Water/electric hookup
$14 – Walk-in tent sites
$10 – Extra vehicle/RV, if space allows (No charge for towed vehicles)
$10 – Unattended vehicle
$75 – Extra vehicle season pass
$180 – Primitive group camp (You must reserve all 12 sites)

Also it says that the showers are coin operated so those who don't use a trailer shower need to remember to bring lots of quarters.

Brandi, if you have a long space, it seems that it might be posible to add another vehicle, it is 10 for a trailer.

I think I remember seeing (somwhere) that this park is about 5 miles from the town of Morton.
The Trailer Goddess an I plan to stock up on most items we'll be needing for the weekend LONG before we get near Morton anyhow, so the 'shopping' issue will have been dealt with. We don't attend these events to 'go do something else', to occupy our time. We come for the comradery of spending quality time with like minded campers....
(the Wodka Shotz don't hurt either, LOL!!!)

I suppose that we can have a meeting during the get-together, for all of those who may be interested, in where and how to continue our get-together venues. There are obviously some good arguements for staying at the same place/same time, and also some good arguements for those who like to "mix it up" by going to different places or have it at different times of year. I personally think that establishing a uniform time frame, if not the same venue, for trip planning purposes would probably help most folks who don't share the luxury of being retired, (like me...neener, neener!) so they could plan each time knowing when it will be held. Some folks can't schedule such trips easily on short notice, and some of us can. Nobody said life was fair, or that everyone's wishes can be accomodated, but we can all try to find a workable solution if we get together and hash it out. They do the Bullard's Beach trip at the same time/same place every year just so people can plan ahead knowing that it will always be the same every year. But then, there are those who like to experience new places, or at least different places so as not to feel like they're in a rut. Both arguements have merit, and I'm sure that we'll work out something which will be workable by the majority of our group. (If we could get Doug to ply us all with enough vodka, I'm sure we will all agree to just about anything, hint, hint! LOL) But, until then, please feel free to express your thoughts here as to your feelings on the matter and also why you feel that they would be the best way to go. We could air a lot of views here between now and the get-together in June, and perhaps by the time it rolls around, we can narrow down the field of suggestions to just a few, rather than forty. It's good to see that people are interested, so keep the dialog going.
Greg

I think once we have found a good campground we should return. However finding that campground may not be as easy as it sounds. Until we try to have our pot luck tables and our lawn chairs around the campfire, until we visit and until we have experienced the surroundings we won't know if this is the campground for us. Most camp spots are not large enough for 65 people to sit around a campfire. Its not fun to be stuck out in the trees when the place fills up and there is no more room for your chair. Once we see if coin showers work, only 19 full hook ups works then all we need to do is say yes or no. I just think we need to try it on for size and color before we commit. The idea of allowing doubling up may be a good thing for our group with our smaller trailers.

I'm for a regular spot but just say, lets see if this is going to be it after we try it on.

Another thing to consider about this camp is that by next year there will be an additional 300 spaces. You can see the layout of the massive new addition. Rows of full service campspots. There will be more spaces than Bullard beach total in this one new section of the campground.
