Drat, Ken & Chris - sorry you had to cancel ... we were looking forward to visiting with you two again. You will surely be missed this weekend.
We aren't able to make Lake Casitas this year, but perhaps our paths will cross down the road. Take care & happy travels! L 'n D

Went down to the camp from my home in Dunes City, just south of Florence. Met a lot of very nice people and had a very enjoyable visit. Thanks to all for making me welcome, Thanks Gina for the Dr Pepper.

You are welcome! It was good to finally meet you.

Everyone here has their "Neet Sheets" courtesy Kimberly Clark.. and several ARE "3 Sheets" from the wine tasting competition and pot luck.

We did informal trailer tours and relaxed today, then the wine tasting.. Bardy and the 1960s Geographic made a Grand Entrance while everyone was at the campfire.. so.. that was VERY cool. (Ya planned it perfect Bardy! )

I couldn't tell you what wine won.. even tho I am a whiner, I am not a winer.. I DID drive around slowly looking for drunks to give taxi rides to... since the shower scam fell through, I have to find other creative ways to get gas money home.

No one thought walking while under the influence was dangerous tho.. so I am still broke.

I hope they don't throw me out of the park ...

Well, trailer tours, pot luck and lots of visiting.. SUCCESS!!!

Everyones feetsies are tired from walking around and seeing all the great trailers, and we are all stuffed from the great dutch oven food and lovely side dishes and salads everyone shared.

Here is a picture of the Booty Table and all the wonderful donations and gift baskets.

We also need to give a BIG thank you to Abby, their daughter.. she has her own site this year, with a tent.. RIGHT in the thick of things. She is putting up with folks tromping thru her space, noise and in general.. pandemonium in her very close vicinity! Thanks Abby!

Eric did a great group photo, and we will let him post it (It's his, after all!) and I saw many many cameras today.. I am sure (And hoping real hard!) that folks will post their pictures soon!

Sad to say, most of the eggs are gone, and a few of us die hards with extra vacation time ( ) are all thats left.

I managed to sleep in today and pretty much do NOTHING but go for a pleasant little drive this morning along the Coquille River and then go get my children out of jail.. They didn't want to come with me.. the doggie hotel was so nice!

It DID rain this year.. but today was lovely, even a bit toasty.. with a slight drizzle this evening.. nothing to worry about or run from.. it didn't even put out my fire.

Tomorrow, most folks leave that are left. It will be sad to say goodbye, but next year will bring them all back.

Thanks to Bardy for bringing his treasure and for being a good sport about all the visitors. It was great to see his rig.

I will be here another day, leaving tuesday for points east and south. not looking forward to leaving my vacation paradise, but I will get to see some of the southern Oregon areas I am fond of and have been meaning to do more around than just whip through in the car. Will stop near Grants pass and figure it out from there.

Still looking for pictures! And grumping at myself for not taking more...

It's so SAD!!!!

Everyone is gone and it's LONELY here. I took the pups for a walk and only counted a few pickets.. there is Karen and Buck next to me in their Casita, Ian and Paddy in their lovely Escape 5th wheel, Vivian and Joe in their Scamp 16, Suzanne and Jay in their Bigfoot 21.. and lowely me in my Burro 17. There are a couple others in areas I didn't walk.. swing by and say hello..

It really has got me depressed! These are all nice folks to be left with, but the shimmer of glass has faded, and the clank of aluminium and rustle of nylon are quickly filling the spaces and it's turning into a typical campground..

I move on tomorrow, back to the real world on yet an undecided route. I will get as far as Grants Pass.. but after that, its wanderlust until I have to be back to that most evil of all 4 letter words next Monday.

I have "camped" here longer in one sitting than I have in any other place.. I think they just put a mailbox up for me...it will be like leaving home.

HI! Gina,
it was good to see you again and as usual you are a lot of fun, thanks for letting me through your passage to A loop for free
came home by going south to Hwy 199 to GP. than to Central Pt. had two other Casitas behind me until we stop for lunch south of Gold Beach, the views were great and so was the lunch.
You better stay at the coast as it was 90 in GP. and 93 in CP. and the same for a few days.
Had a great time and it was good to see everyone and can't wait for next year. Jay

What, Gina gave the passage away for free? No wonder the bucket was empty. What kind of business woman are you Gina?

SHHHH!!! I am currently in Jays neighborhood. I am plotting to get him to fix my toilet for free!

Well, Bullards is a passed memory now. I made it out of there.. LAST! (Except for Karen and Buck who are staying another day)

I saw Ian and Paddy this morning.. they were on their way to Coos Bay with radiator issues to get fixed.. hope they made it OK!

Vivian and Joe were leaving as I was dumping my trash, so technically.. I followed them out.

I am now at my apparent refuge.. it's a tradition.. and several long stories, but I relaxed this afternoon in my lovely spot at Valley Of The Rogue State Park just a tad but south of Rogue River Oregon, just off I-5. (First time I have BEEN on I-5 this trip!)

Just for you, Jay.. it is slightly different than the last time you saw me here, but believe it or not.. It is the same space, by sheer co-inky dink.
