Well, I'm a rockhound and that area has lots of purty rocks . . . .I'll be the one walking around with my head down.

We have just reserved site 287 for the 4th - 7th. I rarely post and have never been to a gathering, so this will be exciting for my family and I. We love this park. Discovered it last year on the recommendation of some friends. This will be our third stay in two summers at Taidnapam. We look forward to meeting everyone.

Thanks,
Matt, Melissa & Aidan Brown
Gig Harbor, WA

Keep yer fingers crossed! This is the long term weather forecast:

The really long range forecasts try to break us back into a sunnier and more seasonal pattern as we trend toward June -- a development I gather that might be music to the ears of the sun fans

For the first timers to Tiadnapam...happy trails..see you there!

TIP for TomTom users..enter as intersecting streets in Glenoma, Wa / enter Kosmos Rd West first, then Champion Haul road. For some reason Champion Haul Road doesn't appear as an option if you look for that first!

or alternatively as Latitude: N 46 28 06.2 Longitude: W 122 09 51.2

Directions
Taidnapam Park is about 110 miles south of Tacoma in Lewis County, near the town of Morton. From Tacoma, take I-5 south to Highway 12 East (Exit 68). Drive east on Highway 12 for approximately 37 miles (5 miles past Morton). Turn right on Kosmos Road, then left onto Champion Haul Road. Drive approximately four miles to the park entrance.

An alternate route from Tacoma is to take Highway 7 south to Morton. At Morton, turn left onto Highway 12 and drive 5 miles. Turn right on Kosmos Road, then left onto Champion Haul Road. Drive approximately four miles to the park entrance.

I'd like to add that cell service is spotty at best in the campground, so a heads up for those who may need to stay in touch with loved ones at home, prepare an alternate method of communication while in the park.

From the north; Hiway 7 is shorter and more scenic. I come down thru Shelton so use I-5

Hello Friendly Crampers!

It's been awhile since I've logged on to FRV. Simon and I have been up to our ears in moving. Ugh! We've moved from a big house up the hill to a small house down the hill... same town, same street! DOWNSQUEEZIN'! When done, this will be a good move for us, but we're still in the throws of paint dust, purging and unpacking... frankly moving sucks... no kiddin', you all say.

So, it is with REGRET that we've decided to cancel our Taidnapum plans this year. Great park, great people... but it's just too much for us at the moment. We have to tidy-up and stage the big house and list it before mid-June. Before that there's that "fun" project: a big bleepin blowout garage sale!

So I've cancelled our spot at site #226.

When the dust settles, we'll catch up with you all again.

Have a fun, SUNNY time at Taidnapum. Special thanks to Greg Finke for putting this out there.

Cheers,
Sharen & Simon

Sharon,
Sorry to hear that you and Simon won't be at the Taidnapum get-together. We'll all miss you guys, but I understand that sometimes things in our lives take on a greater priority. Here's hoping you have a successful move to your new home, and to maybe seeing you out camping elsewhere later this year.

Hi, All,

I am sorry to report that the Eugene contingent (Bob, Adonna, Charlene, & Dennis) are all going to have to cancel, each for their own reasons. We will miss seeing you all, but we hope to see you at Bullards in July!

Take care and have fun!

Bob

Well, the best laid plans of mice and men...

I had to cancel my reservation today as well. Sorry I won't be able to make it this year either due to family issues which have arisen. Nothing dire or serious, just some things that we need to take care of. Well, there's always next year! You all have fun next weekend.

I'm going to be in Reno Friday picking up our new (to us) 2009 Escape

I plan to see you at Taidnapum Saturday on the way home.

Sorry folks - hate to do this, but we need to cancel. I keep trying to retire but promised to do some on-call work for a big project and one of the deadlines is this Friday, plus some vehicle repair and babysitting obligations - you know 'life'.... really sorry to miss it ! Hope we can come next time! See you all in Bandon!

BTW, sorry for post 58. I was bouncing back and forth between this thread and the Mary Hill one and lost track where I was. Had a great time in Mary Hill despite incessant wind. Looks like we will be having typical PNW weather to enjoy!! But that is one reason we own eggs instead of tents, LOL
See y'all at Taidnapam

For Fri/Sat/Sun
Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Snow level 7000 feet......can we all take a collective breath today at noon -PST - and hold it for 30 seconds while thinking sunny thoughts? Not for ourselves, but for Glenn G. who's traveling the farthest and hasn't canceled yet!!

I'm optimistic..

Wanted to be absolutely sure before we posted but we are about 30 minutes from departing from Wapato and will be in site 48 sometime today. Yes, I know we are away from all the rest but we wanted to camp next to Adonna, Bob, Charlene and Dennis, who all cancelled. So, for the rest of you, we will be there; a cause for your morning walk. Gil and Kathy Garcia---bringing Train (sans Linda and Dale) if anyone wants to play.
