What a great time. Good food, fantastic weather, excellent park facility, and a chance to make new friendships and renew old ones. I could've stayed a few more days and made a week long Eggtoberfest out of it. Nancy, thanks for getting a few pics up so soon, I'll never forget the sight of you guys tearing down the hill at 50 miles an hour, next time I'll turn around and join you. Mailie and I have a few pics that we'll be sharing in the next few days as well. So glad that Louise was OK and that she and John could attend for a day. Kathy, awesome french toast as always, and Bill, I'll be waiting for your package. Until next spring, Bob and Adonna, Dennis and Charlene (and Luna), Issac and family, Larry, Linda and Dale, Linda and Taylor, Sharen and Simon, Dave and Kathy, Mike and Nancy, Chris and Maureen, Barb, Pete and Lynn, Bill and Jackie, Anne, Donna and everyone else take care and keep in touch.

Wayne and Mailie

So glad to hear that the weather was good. Where we are , there has been a dramatic drop in temperature , more like winter weather. We hope to share in the spring gathering and will make reservations when leave confirmed with employers and vacation plans.

TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTED that Simon & I hadn't EXTENDED our Fall Nog stay at Stub Stewart State Park in Oregon's splendidly colorful hills located an hour west of Portland. Who would'a believed we'd enjoy solid sunshine for four consecutive days at this time of year? ... a long weekend that created for us, the culmination of the PERFECT CRAMPING SEASON! Beginning with the Spring NOG last April, all the way through now, to our astonishment, Simon and I enjoyed SIX SPLENDIDLY SUNSHINY long weekend get-aways in our cramper, a '97 Casita. As we overheard Wayne comment: "We're sticking with Simon & Sharen!"

Thanks Wayne. But MOTHER deserves abundant recognition. Thanks Mom! ...that Nature Girl gave us a season from which legends are made. The "Summer of 09" shall go down in cramping history as SIMPLY THE BEST!

And speaking of "BESTS," I ask you all to consider the serious subject of, ahem, "drug use" at our NOGs. I suspect the addictive agents in question have been injected in one or all of the following dishes:

Linda & Dale's 300-gallon DO Chile
Kathy's Legendary Apple Strudel French Toast & Real Maple Syrup
Janet's Big A** Skillet aka Macy's-Worthy Mac & Cheese
Paul's Self-rising DO HOT BREAD
???'s DO Mexican Lasagna (Help me out with the chefs!)

Whatever the drug - for now let's call it the "Comeback4more" - it seems to activate each April and October. We're hooked... we're ADDICTED... We're soooo stoned on you people that we can't keep ourselves from coming back! Thus, we've concluded that it's not just the nice parks, the splendid scenery, bike & hiking trails, the nearby fun & funky villages, the garage sales (oh mama, bite my fist!!! $15 for 15 pieces of vintage enamelward - I'm so high, I could fly!), the friendships, starry night skies, and wonderfully "not organized" light hand that Donna extends to us... IT'S SOMETHING YOU ARE ALL PUTTING IN YOUR DEEP DISHES!!!

So, God-willing and the creek don't rise, you shall see us again in April 2010 at SilverFalls... and likely in October at Waterloo as well. We're even signing up for Bandon again this summer.

And a special note to NOG Newbies - Yes, you Robert with the shiny Scamp & Jeep ensemble, and Barbara's "Stevie Ray" - and all other Newbies... we do hope you enjoyed yourselves and will come back again and again.

Cheers all, and thanks so much for making the Fall NOG a wonderful event!
Sharen & Simon
P.S. I also meant to say how great it was to see Charlene, foot in cast, on the mend! You go girl! Mend on!

Mike and I both enjoyed our first egg gathering, it was wonderful to meet egg folks, put faces to names from the forum, make new friends.

As a few of you know we missed a lot because my computer crashed on the way Fri., as I was looking at the online map and checking our site reservation, and we spent most of Sat. at a computer store in Portland, (to no avail, it looks serious, we are taking my crashed hard drive to Seattle this week in the hopes of a data recovery, a big deal, I do a lot of photography, design & sell cards using a software that is difficult to back up).

Without access to my computer, I feel like a fish out of water. I was hoping to be more present at the gathering, take a lot more photos, and put up a web page on our "Turtle site". Wasn't very present, can't access my web site, but here are my meager, humble offerings in the photo collection category:

Egg Folks - Fall 2009 Oregon gathering (you may see one photo rotated, I'm working on that! Sharing this way is new to me)

Many thanks to all who made shared meals and warm fires happen!
We look forward to future gatherings, if they don't get TOO far south to travel to for a weekend!

We also had a great time! Stub Stewart is in a great part of the state and nearby vernonia was charming. The local grocers was a hoot! They were set up and giving flu shots in the produce section (I had to reach around the sharps container to get to the carrots), the local Realtor was handing out business cards in the cookie section and the checkers husband worked at Stub Stewart! Small world

Thanks to everyone for the trailer tours and for making us feel so welcome at our first rally. The beer exchange was a blast and a great way to meet folks and the Saturday night potluck was wondrous. Today we're cleaning out the trailer, doing the laundry and wishing we were back at the rally....

Thanks - those photos gave a great sense of the event and the area. Looks like it was a lot of fun, with some crisp "good sleeping weather" at night :exactly

I found myself thinking "I wonder if that's so-and-so" as I saw various people.

I have a shelter question: Someone had a lightweight looking freestanding (i.e. not attached to the trailer) awning. It happened to have a peace sign on the back and/or was blue and green (not sure if that was the same one). Can anyone tell me what kind that is? I like the look, and it looks lighter than an EZ- or First-up.

Thanks,

Raya

Raya,

That belongs to Sharen and Simon. Her rv moniker is HeathGal.

I've got some catching up to do! I was only online briefly this morning to post the Fall NOG 2010 info..

Anyway, I had a BLAST! The weather was terrific, and the people are the absolute BEST. There were a couple of snags, but we'll just consider those "Lessons Learned."

I'm going to blame Sharen and Simon, er.... thank them for the SPECTACULAR weather. Wherever they go, I think we should all plan on following I was one of the ones that came early (Wed) and stayed late (Monday AM) and boy am I glad I did. I highly recommend an extended time.

Thanks to everyone that pitched in to help wherever needed and those that brought tables for the pot lucks. Couldn't have done it without you!

The newbies were not bashful... which is good around this crowd. Everyone fits in!

I did end up with a couple of items, one is a small battery operated lantern and the other a silver-in-color tray. If either are yours send me a PM and I'll see if I can get them back to you.

Thanks too for those that are posting pictures. I'll relive some memories throughout this winter while waiting for the Spring NOG.

We endured those dang "EZ-ups" - the ones with heavy-duty (ha!) accordian-style tops - until one summer when a gust of wind took it and twisted the durn thang into a mass of metal-mumble-jumble. It ended up in the trash.

So I bought a simple version... the blue, lightweight rig you saw at site 67... with the PEACE sign, although the PEACE sign is an after-market-add-on. They're easy to assemble... cost $30 at Wal-Mart. We had two of them at Stub Stewart, one as a "roof," the other as a "wall shelter" from the oh-so-welcome SUN!

All that said, it does not stand alone, like EZ-ups do... the blue rig needs to be tethered down. But as I said, they're "easy," and "forgiving," thus they are far less destructable.

I hope that answers your question.
Cheers,
Sharen

Thanks, Sharen I think I found it on Wal-Mart's website thanks to your tip: The Ozark Trail Dining Canopy. It's here if anyone else is interested:
