Oh wow. What a great, great time I had. And the people. I don't think you could ever get a better bunch of nice people together, except maybe next year, and last year and the year before that...

Thanks to each and everyone of you for all your help and effort. They say it takes a community to raise a child. I know first hand it takes many, many volunteers to put on a successful gathering of this size. I know Nancy has it so well organized in advance, it's pretty dang easy to just direct the "traffic." But your help and assistance was fabulous!

All the workshops seemed to have gone off without a hitch and I've heard really, really nice comments about how much fun and informative they are were. And the trailer tours, and the Dutch Oven workshop, the potlucks and the kids stuff and the "horseshoe" contest and on, and on, and on.

I hope this finds everyone home safe and sound... we'll see y'all next year

What a great weekend!

The people, as Donna said were wonderful, as usual. The weather was fantastic, the food -- Oh, the food!-- No mosquitos to speak of, lots of old friends to re-connect with, Lex and Rita from Holland are delightful, lots stayed until Monday to kick back and relax. Wish we could have stayed longer!

We are sorry Nancy was so sick, and hope she is doing much better. She never lost her sense of humor, though! Donna, et al, pulled it all together beautifully.

I believe a good time was had by all!

Jacquie & Bill

Me too!! My first time and won't be my last. What a great bunch of people you all are. Thanks Gene and Ellen for helping me get into a site early. Thank you to everyone who helped me as a newbie with all the endless questions I had and Ian and Eric for coming to my trailer to give me advise and the workshops they gave. I got pages of ideas, modification, care techniques and just plain fun stuff to do. Thanks again everyone!!!!

Thanks to everyone that helped make this another wonderful gathering. It couldn't have been more perfect; good people, excellent food, fun activities, and the best weather we could have asked for.
We hope to see everyone next year if not before.
Deb & Chuck

Lynn, Max and I would like to say hello to everyone we met at this year's Gathering, and thank you all for your hospitality and friendly welcome to some newbies (and a dog in manners training!). We really didn't know what to expect, but couldn't have had a better time, in any way. It was wonderful to meet so many friendly folks and learn so much---we're already hoping to make reservations in October for next year. I've finished all the laundry (the last load of dog blankets is in the washer), and Max is snoozing again (he slept most of the 5 hour drive home, with a bit of a smile on his face, I think, probably dreaming about all the fun he had too! We hope you all get home safe (some of you still have long travels to go, and more big adventures, we hope) and will look forward to next year.

made new friends and kept the old, all were silver and all were gold!
I loved how everyone was walking around with little notebooks, recording names & emails & trailer notes & recipes & to-do-list updates & ETC.
....and after 4 years my guilty conscience has finally snagged me---a volunteer SOMETHING is in the stars for next year.
Jim and I and Kermit (it's not easy being green!) say THANKS TO ALL for another memorable Gathering, and all the new ideas. Y'all come on down to the redwoods sometime--unique on the planet, and only 30 minutes south of the Oregon border, beautiful camping ops (altho' nothing as high-falutin' as Bullards w/ full hookups etc.!) & we'll give you personal tours (we both work for Redwood National & State Parks)

Ditto to "Having a Fabulous time" and I agree with each and every comment above! I'd also like to say that the reason I had an even better time this year than in our last two previous Gatherings (okay, besides the great weather) was the fact that I was more involved! Nancy had a need and many of us helped out, which was all good, but the people I met because of being involved was the real benefit for me. What fun it is now to know the faces behind the names I see on the postings and to meet many first timers!

Next year hubby and I already have a craft project in mind for young and old - hope we can pull it off. And, we're looking forward to expanding our reservation to arrive earlier. If you can pull it off, it's a lot of fun was hanging with the early crowd, sharing meals and campfires, and relaxing before The Gathering begins.

See you all [early] next year and hope more of you will take part in making the fun happen!
Ellen

Hi All,

Lily and I had a great time. It was so wonderful seeing old friends and meeting new ones. We had an exceptional amount of Newbies this year and then of course Lily and I had to meet all the Newbies from last year since we didn't attend. It was awfully hard taking a walk without being gone for hours on end.

The Golf Ball Horse Shoe contest was a hit. Many said it was a great ice breaker on Thursday. The big winners were Zack Layton of Oregon and Earl Arrhants (sic) from California. They were presented a wonderful handmade trophy on Saturday night. I'll bring up the Golf Ball Horse Shoe thread when I get home and post pictures as well as the plans for the game, which many people had asked for. Sorry, I missed you Larry Husted before you left.

Hope to see all of you next year, if not sooner.
