Cari was testing out her new hammock a couple weeks ago in the yard.

I may just have to do a day run from Lincoln City on the Coast and see whats up! It would be a great opportunity to look over some eggs before I set out on the actual road of buying one!
The only Fiberglass I have is a 17' Newport sailboat! I have actually camped in this on the water.

You're more than welcome to join us Randy. Bring a tent and stay! There are tent sites still open.

Thanks for the invite to see the DC fridge. We will come by over the weekend. We are in site 28 A with a Happier Camper.

Getting excited about our first upcoming Fiberglass Trailer meet! Going to clean up the trailer, get out the glamping accessories, and power up the decorative mini lights. No hookups in our site but so far we have not had any problems staying ahead of power needs with our minimal usage, our 100 amp hour battery, and 140 watt solar panel.

Happy weekend NOGgers. We're just less than two weeks to Spring NOG! Fun times ahead.

I thought I'd go ahead and post the schedule and give you some of my thoughts on other issues.

I'll be in the park on Wednesday (20th) and I'm going to check with the Park Hosts to see if we can use the Shelter. However, if the weather looks like it will be dry, the Friday and Saturday night activities are at my site 53A. We may not know where we'll land until a couple of hours before the start of any activity. If I'm not at my site, I'll post a notice on the door of my trailer when we know more.

Don't forget your name tags. We have lots of new people. Let's make it easy on them. Remember when you were the newbie? Trying to remember peoples names is uncomfortable!

THE Schedule of events such as it is... This is the Spring NOG. While it's referred to as the Northern Oregon Gathering, I kinda prefer Not Organized Gathering.

Daytime hours are completely unscheduled. Feel free to do what you wish, sleep in, hike, go to town, play cards, sit-and-visit, etc., etc. As far as trailer tours, nothing scheduled for that either. If you see folks sitting outside, stop and chat and ask to see their trailer. I've found most folks have an informal open house.

DON'T FORGET TO BRING/WEAR A NAME TAG.

WEATHER PERMITTING - No-host dinner-on-a-stick roasting fire going at my site (53A) on Friday night. This is not a potluck, bring everything you need. Fire will be roaring in the NOG tub, come by anytime after 6:00pm. If you have a stick or two of firewood to share at the NOG tub, that would be grand. And the biggy:

CRAFT BEER EXCHANGE
7PM SHARP
FRIDAY NIGHT

This is an "opener" event.
Bring a six pack of craft beer, trade one bottle or can for a different kind.

Everyone is welcome at anytime to anything. If you're not a beer drinker that's perfectly okay. Please bring your lawn chair and join us anyway. Beer/food is secondary to the good times we'll have around the NOG tub.

WEATHER PERMITTING - Saturday potluck at my site (53A) 6pm SHARP.
Bring a food item to share that feeds 6-10 people, your table service and lawn chair. I'll supply the garbage bags for trash. I have a few items for the give-away. If you have something you'd like to pass along to another NOGger, please bring it Saturday night. I don't have room to store products.

Please, no pets at any of the food events.

Hope this helps with some questions. Post if not, we'll get the question answered.

And PLEASE.... everyone pack SUNSHINE and bring it with you

For those of you looking for things to do in the area, McDowell Creek is a day use park with fairly easy hiking and beautiful waterfalls. It is just a few miles down the road from the park. Also, if there are any covered bridge fans out there, Linn County has quite a few.

Have fun!

Thumbs up

on the area : ) yup lots to do and agree w/Kathie.

One of the reasons Cari & I were excited about checking out Waterloo park and visiting w/the fiberglass gang is we frequent the area several times each season. Just up the road from the park (~20 minutes) is an area called Yellow Bottom Recreation area. It is an eleven mile corridor set aside for gold prospecting along the Santiam River. There are free dispersed camp sites along the river. Total boon-docking experience but beautiful if you are up for it. Here are a few pictures from some trips. IF you are up to a stay at a wonderfully maintained forestry campground in the area, check out Yellowbottom Campground up the same road. We've taken both the small trailers we've had over the years into the campground and had a great time in the area.

One of our favorite spots to enjoy the river:


Camping next to the river with Parkliner #35 and the Van:


and here is a link to a panorama ...use the horizontal scroll to see all 360 degrees of the camp!

Nice Thom - thanks for sharing, always looking for new spots. It is a beautiful area. Lot's of rock hounding too (petrified wood and the famous Holley blue agates).

For those that can come at nearly the last minute, Linn County Parks has opened B Loop for reservations... just for us! CALL and get a reservation on Monday. Post here all your details so I can update the participants list and site map.


Cool beans!
