Teresa, were abouts are the folks that have the system? Perhaps one of us could pick it up from them on our way.

Hi John, it's a long 4+ hour drive from Beaverton to Bullard's Beach. I could throw a small tent, airbed and sleeping bag into the trailer if you think you would like to spend the night. We live west of Beaverton and will be going down on Thurs. We can offer you a corner the campsite as it's just me, my husband, our small Compact trailer and 2 middle size dogs.

Happy Trails
Loyce

You are most kind. I will discover whether (and when) I will be flying out sometime this week. If I am going to make it I would love to take you up on your offer.

I have recently purchased a used 2009 Scamp 16 which I have not even picked up yet. I am soooo antsy to get a hold of my own TT and start making her mine. A little time with like minded folks will help I think.

John, we hope you can make it! Loyce, that is a great idea---I read your posts to Lynn and he said "that's the kind of people we have at the Gathering"---so generous and willing to help. Let us know if anything else is needed---just stop by A-12---we always have extra food, dishes, towels, pillows, etc..

I'll be there next year.

This event sounds like a good one. Making a reservation early is a very good idea. When the 2014 schedule comes out I'm making a reservation early as possible. Those of you that are attending Have fun !

Minor mishaps on the way home: Thanks to those who stopped & helped

Well, Lynne and I had an adventurous drive home.

First, something innocent. Not long after we left Bullards and headed north toward Coos Bay, we looked at the gas gauge and started worrying that we didn't have enough to make it into town for fuel. Rather than potentially run out of gas with the trailer on a narrow section of road in the rolling hills, we opted to drop the trailer off and drive the truck solo into town. It took 18.5 gallons to fill our 19 gallon tank, so we *might* have made it in if we'd pulled the trailer, or we might have run the tank dry on a hill.

Thanks to all of you who stopped and offered help while we un-hitched, and, for those of you who wondered why there was an abandoned Scamp 5th wheel a few miles north of Bullard's Beach for a short while: well, now you know.

The real fireworks went off as we hit the outskirts of Salem, where we had a blow out, the passenger side rear wheel of our pickup shredded. We came to a nice, controlled stop in the wide emergency lane just before Commercial Street in Salem. It took some time, but we got the spare on, then slowly drove up Commercial Street to find the first gas station where we could get some more air in our spare.

A big thanks to Dave and Kathie Newlyn for stopping, offering help, and giving us a phone number if we needed additional assistance.

From there it was smooth sailing to Vancouver, WA. Despite these two delays, we did get home in time for a slightly delayed (45 minutes) dinner with visiting family from out-of-town.

So, now we're home and fed. The ending for the weekend was unusually eventful, but otherwise we had a great time, and everything worked out in the end.

Happy Trails!

--Peter (& Lynne)

Yikes! Your trip home was WAY WORSE than my getting flipped off by a nasty man in a sports car just because I was changing lanes while trying to get out of his way on I-5 (several times, as it happens, as he whipped around from lane to lane on the freeway)...I was just frustrated that the truck, towing Iggy, couldn't catch him...Anyway, I am glad you made it home safely, and that several of our wonderful Oregon Gathering folks stopped to offer help. It was a very fun OG and we sure hope we make it back next year!
