How does this sound? A quasi potluck type where everyone brings a dish to share, instead of trying to bring raw ingredients and cooking at one spot?

I don't eat breakfast, but wouldn't mind being part of the cleanup committee!
Let's do that--the quasi potluck. Whoever wants to bring a grill can and cook something to share. How about that?

That will still keep some of the ambiance.

Yep and stays within the idea the NOG was not going to be overly organized.

See y'all in LESS than two weeks

Hello Fellow Crampers,

Sharen & Simon here, green behind the ears already in this PNW wet and soggy winter - no, autumn didn't happen this year. Some cynics claim that Winter on Whidbey Island began last July 5th. THUS, WE WANT SUNSHINE, and hope to find some in NOG this weekend. Don't anyone burst our bubbles! IT SHALL BE SUNNY.

While we connected with glass egg folks last month in BC, this is our first endeavor to connect with Casita-neestas folk. We're looking forward to meeting all of you and sharing some good times round the crampfires.

Our 10 y/o Casita - new to us - did great on our last strip, and the Toyota 4Runner we bought as tow vehicle did fine too, so we're set to go again - sheets and towels washed and freshened, canned beans on board... fuzzybutts bathed and fluffed, Champoeg State Park brochure printed out successfully from their Website. Thank you Donna for the links.

We'll be spending Mon, Tues, Wed somewhere else - yet to be determined, maybe the So WA coast - arriving at Champoeg on Thursday, in case any others are early birds too. We'll be in A-1. I tried to get closer but no luck.

So, happy travels to all of you.
Be seeing you soon.

Sharen & Simon

What's required here is an act of devotion to the sun and summer weather. In other words a sunshine dance & ritual.

Here's what need: All of us campers need to pack swim suits, beach towels, and T-Shirts. We also need one rain jacket and one winter jacket. (Don't jinx us by bringing extra rain and winter jackets we don't need for the dance.) That and our usual assortment of camp chairs and other things we ordinarily take with us when we go camping, and we're all set.

Here's what we do:
If we were doing a rain dance ritual we'd dance around in a circle wearing rain jackets singing praises to the clouds sacrifice some sun-withered crops to the rain gods. To invoke the sun you gotta do the same kind of thing, 'cept we all dance around in our bathing suits, sing praises to the sun and to blue sky, and sacrifice a rain and a winter jacket by burning them in the fire pit.

Makes sense to me . . . .

--Peter

What do you mean, "We dance around in our birthday suits..." ???

... oh, er "bathing suits... "

... nevermind.

Well, we're contemplating going to Cape Disappointment in SW WA for a couple of days before we head into Champeog this coming week. Anybody been to CD? Disappointing?

Cheers,
Sharen

We camped at Cape Disappointment last August and found it stunningly beautiful. The only thing disappointing was that they charge admission to the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center. We loved our stay there!

It's nice enough. I doubt you'd regret staying there. But I think Ft. Stevens just across the bridge in Oregon is nicer. http://www.oregonstateparks.org/park_179.php

Pretty much a win either way, I'd say.

Cape disappointment is really neat. Some of the sites are almost "on" the beach. We camp there every year for the Annual Long Beach Bluegrass Festival. The small towns aren't too far away if you want to go for some clams or oysters, or a cold beer. In the off season its usually not crowded.

Cheers,
Rich

Hello Peterh;

What part of Portland are you in? I saw a scamp parked in a driveway not too are from Deb's house in NE. She's in the Beaumont area close to Alameda.

Rich, Dave K, Jeanne...

Many thanks for your encouragement and happy snaps. We're packing up today and leaving after rush hour in the morning. About 5 hours from where we are to Cape Disappointment, with perhaps a stop across the bridge to check out Ft Stevens in the ensuing days. I've checked them all out on the Internet and looks good for available camp sites.

I take it that the highway back to the I-5 from Ft Stevens - Oregon's Rte 30 - is pretty decent? What about the scenic road Rte 4 on the WA side along the Columbia River? On Thursday we head on down to Champoeg to meet and greet all of you.

Again, thanks. Enthusiasm makes up a bit for these bleepin gray and gloomy skies.

On the road again soon
Sharen
