As a Newbie I think BOTH of them are great ideas!

Sorry to be so wishy washy, but I just found out we'll have the time off to come to the Lake Casitas Rally, and of course we have no idea how much our trailer weighs fully loaded (hitching it up would be a minor inconvenience) and I have no idea what disasters might befall us (maybe it's better that way if I want to go on believing that our new Bigfoot and I will live "Happily Ever After"?) Naw-I think we subscribe to the 7 "P's"-"prior proper planning prevents Pss poor performance" -so bring it on!

Thanks for doing this for us-I for one really appreciate all of the effort you'll be making!! We hope we can bring some cocktails or home baked goodies or something else to show our appreciation!

During past Oregon Gathering Rallies, I had hosted a Saturday Seminar titled "Avoiding Disasters for Newbies". Carol asked me if I might do that at Lake Casitas, and I agreed to do it.

This year in Oregon, I have decided to shift focus. I talked my company's General Manager into allowing me to bring two wheel weighing scales. I will arrive in Oregon a day early, so that I can set up a "Pit-Crew" site and axle weigh trailers and tow vehicles before people go to their campsites.

Attachment 13927


As I won't be able to come early to Lake Casitas, I won't be able do it the same way there. But, I could bring the scales to you at your campsite on Saturday IF you don't mind the hassle of hitching up for a short time to get weighed.

[b]Shall I stick with The "Disaster Avoidance" Seminar or bring my Scales?

Anyone who offers food and/or drink has my FULL attention!
Both is OK with me.
I will bring the scales with me. If only one person is willing to hitch up, it will still be worth it.

===============

I just got up off the floor. What a fantastic surprise. We are really excited to see you - it's been a very long time. Space 14 is a nice pull through (if I'm remembering correctly). I'm surprised it was still available.

Thanks for joining us at Lake Casitas. You might want to stay Sunday night too. There's usually quite a few that stay until Monday.

Carol, Jim and Jerry (our camping cat)

We still remember the night that Nancy was our first caller, our Casita was brand new on its first trip, camped in the redwoods just down the road from Nancy and Ollie's home. Who could be knocking on our door?
Sorry we probably won't be at Lake Casitas this year, although we hope to be in Idyllwild by that time.

I will be bringing the Wheelweighers and will be happy to weigh anyone at their site. You must hitch up the trailer and pull it up onto the scales. This will only move it forward a foot or so. Then you back it off the scales into your original position. Then we can weigh the tongue.
