Greg,
I don 't think we voted on the time for the Washington meet 2011 to be held. We would like to attend the Escape trailers 2011 meet and it is June 3-5, 2011, and we would also like to attend the Washington meet for it's 3rd year. If they were on 2 different week-ends would be our vote so we could attend both.

Smile venue vote

We like Taidnapam. It is a little out of the way, but doable.
If you are looking for things to worry about, some hikers found bear sign there this year.

(I was hoping to get some interest in the Winlock Egg Festival. This is held the third weekend in June. We went to Winlock but there seems to be no camping nearby. Ike Kinsewa is the closest state park. It is exceedingly difficult to drive around town towing a trailer. The humps crossing the railroad tracks caused us to bottom out, and the narrow streets were difficult to navigate towing Homelet.

Winlock Egg Day Coronation

Washington has so many nice parks. I would like to see gatherings a couple of times a year, maybe spring, summer, fall?

Spring or fall would be good in eastern WA avoiding the heat.
Also it is known for having sssnakesss.

Any season is good in the west.

We should endeavor to be near the greatest number of members.
There should be interesting things to do in or near the park.
(This year, several abortively tried to ride the Mt Rainier train.)

We don't want to conflict with Oregon or BC gatherings. The calendar on this website should help with that.

Otherwise, have at it.

Roger,
Good idea having more than a once a year Washington NOG! Oh, don't forget last year's first NOG meet at Maryhill State Park on the banks of the Columbia river started by Paul & Norma, it was a lot of fun.

Also!!! It has been recently brought to my attention, via PM, of possibly naming one of our get-togethers in memory of Pete Dumbleton, who recently passed away. Perhaps we can add an additional (2nd) get-together during the year, not to conflict or compete with our currently established one. Any suggestions on when a second WA get-together would be a favorable to most folks? I mean, who wouldn't like an additional camping trip each year? Just a thought...

Greg

HI Greg,
We like Taidnapum and love Grayland -
Mid June would be our preference - we're going to try and follow Deb & Chuck up to B.C. for the Escape rally.
We don't have anything planned this September - how about an early September 2011 Pete Dumbleton Memorial where ever we don't go in June?

I'm with Deb & Chuck and paulw, going to the Escape Rally, then it's open for the Washington Get-Together and, of course, Bandon.

I would like to come to a Pete Dumbleton Memorial Gathering. Being in California I'd opt for a date before or after the Oregon gathering to tie the two together. Others might want to do the same. Actually two weeks in between would good. Maybe the 1st weekend of August that would even put us close to the date of his demise.

Pete liked the ocean so something maybe over that direction would be nice or the Sound.

I'm not real familar with WA SP's. I have been to Ocean Shores, Kitsap and Twin Lakes state parks. As well a Salt Creek County Park.

Smile Potential - unlimited

Using the new members list on this website, I found 236 rigs in Washington.
This is 373 members minus 216 "no trailer yet". The rest figured the same:

BC: 659 - OR: 236 - CA: 500

West coast total: 1732. If we all moved at once, we'd shut down the interstate!

This is probably optomistic because some people have "hunting" or "still looking" or other indication they have no trailer.

(The entire website has 13,140 members with 4,846 nty = 8,294 approx.)

BTW: My other camping group is a Good Sam group and so they stay at Good Sam parks all the time (private). So we are not getting a lot of experience with Washington parks. Beside Taidnapam and Maryhill, we have been to Greys Harbor, Millersylvania, Dosewallops and Fort Townsend with the family as well as above Entiat in the NP. Of these others, I liked Fort Townsend about the best, but they do have wedding parties which can get rowdy.

Wow! Even if only 1,000 of us took to the road at once, wouldn't that look cool!

Thanks for the great image and chuckle! And for doing the math!

A few folks have voted for later in June, so as not to conflict with the Escape event. We would like to see the 2011 event held no more than one week later.

My wood turning club meets the third Thursday, followed by the "Sawdust Session" on the immediately following Saturday. We already miss some of the other Pacific Northwest events due to this conflict, or have to drive long and arrive late.

Holding the 2011 event the second weekend would avoid the Escape event and also allow us to get to my Turning Club meeting, and still come to the WA event.

Mike and Sandy

Peter and I vote for "Other Venues". One of things we love about the NOG (North Oregon Gathering) is the opportunity to learn about Oregon state and county parks that we might not have otherwise heard about and really enjoyed staying at.

We are open on time frame, as long as it isn't the same weekend as the NOG

Hi, GREG!
Glad you started the 'thinking-where-when to-go' process.
I LOVED Donna's thoughts about the Escape meet happening on the June 3rd weekend and would love to attend both meets...and Taidnapam would be right on our way home to Manzanita, if we stayed a few more days to cruise BC. It's one of my favorite spots to be.
If we did the weekend after, June 10th/11th, that would maybe keep us dryer and beat the kids out of school stampede.
I'm ready for a big camping trip, but will have to wait until June, since the upcoming trip to Waterloo will be a relatively small distance for us to go.
See you in June, unless you are coming to Waterloo or going to come visit US in Manzanita. You and your wife are always welcome to hook-up here, in our driveway.
All the best,
Barbara
