Teresa (BluePearl) and I were thinking about something we have done with our family. We pick a day of the week and call it Taco Sunday. If this would work for the group we would provide the meat and if other campers would bring additional ingredients we would plan on that for Sunday night. We might need some additional volunteers to put it all together, but I'm sure everyone will be hungry by Sunday night. After all the Aliens wouldn't want skinny under weight humans for their experiments. If this works please let me or Blue Pearl know.

Drag-out tacos (using whatever one can drag out of their refrigerators) would be great for a warm day. Stone soup is a near cousin and good for cold days: Starting with a pot of broth, everyone brings something dragged out of their 'fridge/pantry to add for a rib-sticking soup. I'm voting for a warm day, myself. Jim&Nancy in the Culvert

Chicken Soup Broth OK?

Hi,

At over 2000 ft. and in May, it's almost sure to be cool / cold in the evenings. We hadn't considered others might also like soup as a primary for a supper. It's a great idea since the broth can be prepared in advance & frozen. Do you think 3+ gallons would be enough? It seems likely we'll have somewhere near 50 people. If we assume 8 oz. per person, that should do it. We'll have room in our freezer (It will be on propane & I will be bringing the generator). I'd be happy to make a chicken / vegie soup broth. That seems like a flexible base for what others might want to add after thawing.

If this is a go, let me know and it's a done thing.

Walt

Sunday meal....

Not sure how many folks will remain on Sunday evening... quite a few have to leave Sunday to go to work.... (sorry...)

I am sure whatever we come up with for food Sunday will be great!

Well, you must forgive me I am retired and never know what day it is! However, a lot of people start back if they have a ways to travel ~ I know several posted they would depart on Sunday... I will go back and read through the posts to get a better idea...

Sometimes we need a day to recover from a rally before going back to work!

We need to head out Sunday as Canada's long weekend is the week prior. Donna did book the Monday off but we are obligated to touch down at a car club event being held in Stanwood, WA on our way home. We will get to A-33 Friday, hopefully early in the morning. Donna works Thursday and I'll have the car and trailer ready to go so all she has to do is come home, change, and we'll start the drive south. We are hoping to get three or four hours in so that we are well south of Seattle before the Friday/long weekend traffic rush.

Any one have any suggestions about an easy one night stop over south of Seattle? I was thinking we could pull in at the Flying J at Tacoma but it has been years since we've actually hauled down I-5. Typically we head right over to the side roads at Bellingham and stay on back roads for the entire trip. Donna's towing comfort level is more with the slower traffic as is my riding shotgun comfort level. I see she has even bought more rolls of duct tape for the trip. For this trip we'll need to stick with I-5 to Vancouver, WA and then head east.

We may end up bringing the truck instead of the wagon which will be a disappointment as we enjoy traveling in the car. For that distance I'm going to need a reclining seat on the passenger side. I did not think about that being a future requirement when I installed the '67 T-Bird buckets but now am on the prowl for a set. So far none are jumping out of anyone's car and heading over to mine but there are a couple of swap meets coming up that may have what I need. None of the wreckers seem to have anything that will work - they have to suit a fifties looking car but have the latest seating comfort. If I can find a set, even if there is not enough time to have them upholstered to match the car, and installed we'll bring the '57. Otherwise we'll be using the truck. it's funny how people look at us like we are weird because we'd rather use a 50 year old car to tow a 57 year old trailer instead of buying a brand new truck and trailer.

I have a swack of fire wood out back having just chopped up three 75+ foot maple trees but the fine folks at homeland security see them as a risk and won't let me bring firewood across the line. I guess the root of their concern is that my maple might beat the sap out of their willow. So I'll have to leaf my limbs at home.

Steph - you are bringing Alki and Barclay right? We are looking forward to meeting them - oh, right, and all of you guys too.

Barry

We stayed at a neat older state park called Millersvavania (sp) It was just east of I-5 South of Olympia. It had a little lake and wasn't far off the freeway.

Thanks 64, I'll see what I can find on the net about it.

Also was thinking of checking out the WBCCI campground which is somewhere along the I-5 I think.

Great place to stay between Canada and Trout Lake would be the Airstream Land Yacht Harbor at Lacy, WA (north suburb of Olympia). Full hookups, nice club house, a whole community of Airstream owners. Latest Blue Beret lists their phone # as 360-491-3750. Address is 9101 Steilacoom Rd., SE, Olympia (Lacy). AND on wedst side of I-5 on exit to Hw. 520 (same exit you'd take to east for the Harbor) is the brand new Cabella's, which I've heard is their largest. Great camping supply department, outdoor clothing, everything for the hunter/fisherfolk, and a fabulous taxidermy collection. Easy to lose a coupl'a hours there. Jim/Nancy in the Culvert
