See you all on Friday -- with luck, arriving late morning. Looking forward to the Friday night NOG fire; I'm always in for a excuse to eat camp fire hot dogs (and a good cocktail or two).

We saw the man and bought the 5er. It was destined to be.

If anyone at this gathering is online. I cancelled this morning.

My site 38 would be available for someone to move to if a drive-in hasn't already gotten it.

It's available today through Tuesday.

I ran into snow before the border and turned around. I won 't pull the Scamp in snow unless I have to. I didn't have to. The snow prior to the border was quite a bit and the road was slippery.

As I drove back south I encountered snow where I'd just come from for about 20 miles or so. Not a lot but it was starting to stick on the road.

I know I can run into snow this time of the year so my plan had been to continue on into to Oregon if there was no snow on the Siskayou's. I wasn't worried about my return trip next week as I would have all the time in the world to get home. I didn't have all that time to sit around prior to the gathering, if I sat around in CA or southern OR you would have headed home before I got there.

Hope you all had a great time.

dang.. I hate it when that happens! You are right.. snow can happen ANYTIME in the siskyous and I always have an alternate route when traveling in the winter.

It hardly seems time tho, eh?

Not that it makes it any better, but they are forcasting a dusting of snow for my neighborhood tonite and tomorrow morning.

Gina an alternate route is great but it's hard to have one for Salem, Ore. Going back down I-5 to Redding and over to the coast would add a day. I wouldn't have gotten there until tomorrow. Everyone'll be heading home Sunday hardly worth the effort.

The only other route would be up 97 and over the Cascades which might not work either, without snow.
I did my best effort.


Oh, and I noticed on my way home that both Sonora & Tioga passes are closed now. They must have gotten some snow.

Hey everyone, I had to come home for a class tomorrow and then will head back to the gathering in time for the pot luck and stay until Monday.

I am so sorry that you won't be able to make it Joy. Everyone was so excited to see you but we all understand about the weather.

It was such horrible weather yesterday that it is humorous to think about today. We had to dig ditches to drain the area around the early bird pot luck and even with three easy ups we all got our share of water. Mud was everywhere and at one point the table was covered with white hail. We had lightning and thunder and pure down pours. But we also had some wonderful food and good catching up with old friends.

Tomorrow night we will do the big pot luck and deside about the April gathering.

At the campground there is no internet and no cell servise. We had to drive six miles to make a call. Hope you made it home safe Joy, I will share this with the group tomorrow evening.

You did the right thing by turning around, Joy A. The I-5 route over Deadman and Siskiyou Summits can be a white-knuckle experience when there is snow on the road, especially the steep descent into Ashland. The 97 route from Weed to Klamath Falls has even higher summits, unfortunately. Getting through those mountains during a winter storm often requires careful timing and some good luck. Sorry it didn't work out.

Joy, my alternate route starts at Stockton

I cut over to the 101 and head up to PLnd via the coast... sort of like going around the block to get to the house next door.

well, mud and hail just help re-enforce WHY we all got these rigs.. it's a different sort of fun! Hope y'all stay warm and reasonably dry.. sigh.. Oregon sunshine in the fall.. my favorite.

I wish I was there.

Gina, Stockton, that's where I come to the 1st major road.

Bob, yes I know. I've been to Oregon many many times in the winter but without a trailer. The names of the summits have never stuck with me but I do know there are several more high rises on I-5 that can also have snow. I never considered any alternate for going to Salem, certainly not 97 or 101. It was timing and luck I'd need to have and surely didn't.

Linda, looks like you posted in the pm Friday so the weather you were talking about was Thursday. It was Thursday night and Friday morning when I was encountering the snow in No. CA.

I hope most of you will be at Bullards next July. I've got my reservations. See you there.

Home again, home again. What a great time! Joy we really missed you, but are glad you made the decision to not press on. We understood OSP had closed the Siskiyou pass Thursday night because of snow and ALSO Hwy 20 from I-5 to Bend... same reason. We didn't get snow, although it did hail and RAIN Thursday night. Couldn't dampen our spirits however. Good friends, good food and great times. Can't wait to see some pictures to renew the memories.

I'll start another topic about the Spring NOG.... time to start taking reservations!
