Every time I see the ads for Easter candy with the many colored peeps I think about Byron telling us that they make the best roasted marshmellows. We will have to bring some to the NOG and test that.

Okay, I am so impatient for it to get to be spring. I am just thinking about the campout. Totally unplanned but thinking about the early bird potluck in our space Thursday night with dutch oven features. Then don't we do the hot dog marshmellow roaste in Donna's space with our special smoke directer fire pit? Are we having a beer exchange Friday night Donna? Then of course the big pot luck on Saturday night at Donna's space. Then we do a Sunday breakfast? How did it go last fall? We didn't get to stay for that.

And the name tag contest. I can't find mine Donna, can I just make some more? How about a marshmellow one? Then when we are done I can just eat it? Maybe not. Maybe I will have to think a little harder.

We will bring some firewood, and our pop up and two dutch ovens. If you have never used your oven feel free to bring it Thursday and we will be glad to help you get started. You are welcome to stack with ours or make a stack beside.

I'm reading in some of the posts an understanding of certain activities that may be known or assumed by those previous attendees and I am wondering where one might find a list of possible events for those who have never been to a rally before. Beer exchange/ pot luck, early bird? Name tags: are these to be worn on the person, placed on the site, are these to be utilitarian or outrageous? Please share the secrets or tell me where to find the secret decoder ring? Imagine that you are coming for the first time ever to a rally, what should I bring to be able to fully participate

Since this is not only the Northern Oregon gathering, it is also the not organized gathering. Donna just wants to enjoy so doesn't do a lot of planning and lets things take place on their own. She does do the name tag contest. They are to be worn on the person and can just be simple to let us know what to call you or they can be as weird as you dare to wear.

Tradition has Saturday being a community potluck and campfire and Sunday has been a community breakfast but that is usually planned by Nancy and Mike. We have a washtub that goes on the community fire pit to keep the smoke going up so that it makes for better sitting around the fire.

Optional things have evolved over time and change gathering to gathering. Nothing has been planned for daytime so far. At other gatherings beading classes or photo classes have happened but that is up to the person who would want to teach it. If there is something you want to add, Donna leaves that up to you to plan and see if anyone is interested. We will probibly go into Canby and do some geocaching Friday.

We like to do the early bird dutch oven gathering to get everyone in the spirit. It is open to everyone even if you don't have dutch ovens but provides a time to compare and learn more about dutch oven cooking. It usually happens around 6 with people gathering around the table and meeting each other, and playing catch up since the last gathering.

Since people don't like to have too many potlucks, Friday is usually just a gathering to visit and some cook hot dogs and marshmellow. But we do our part of the planning with Thursday. Then we just play it by ear for the rest. Stay tuned to see if Nancy and Mike have a list for Sunday or if enough want to do a beer exchange or any other activities. Remember this is the northern Oregon none organized gathering.

OK OK OK, Since we've started talking about stuff going on at NOG I'll add this to mix. Vivian asked me about a "Bake Packer". I promised her I'd bring mine and do a demonstration. I might as well invite all to attend said demo. At around 10:30 am on Saturday I'll be making my famous "Biscuits and Gravy, finger food" using one or two Bake Packers.

For those that don't about Bake Packer, it's an item and method of cooking that came out close 20 years. The primary users are backpackers, hence the Bake Packer. It's a very simple way of cooking with no mess to clean up. You can read more about it at the manufacturer's web site.

And don't forget, for things to do during the day, the park has a museum and garden to explore as well as nicely maintained bike trails. We will be bringing our folding bikes but we can never keep up with some of the serious bike riders who ride 5 miles each way to get a newspaper.

Hi Gil - I've been wondering how Blackjack is doing. Will he be joining the reunion at Champoeg, or will he be staying home?

Adonna =^..^=
