Area 33 Rally | 2019

Reserved dates: May 24 - 27
Please sign up on the rally calendar: http://www.airforums.com/forums/cale...=2019-5-24&c=1

The basics: This rural spot has a group camp area with fire ring - wood included, great views, a babbling brook, 2 lovely porto-lets and a potable water spigot. If you want to shower you can drive a couple of miles down the road to the county park or we can dunk you in the icy creek (elk will be watching...) Camping is in a grassy but not level field with some sparse trees - no sand, gravel or asphalt slabs anywhere! Plan to boondock and arrive with full fresh water tanks (or water up just before you park at one of the two potable water spigots in the camping area) and empty black tanks.

Parking takes some planning and may be somewhat challenging. Almost all sites require backing but there is always help if you need it and an audience if you don't Almost everyone will need to unhitch and park tow vehicles away from trailers. Camping fees are yet to be determined but will be approximately $20 per night (cash and check only). This fee extends to each tent pitched as well.

Reservations are to be made on the calendar - please do not contact the property owner. I have reserved the entire place.

Hollenbeck Park is privately owned and located near Trout Lake WA
33 Mt Adams Rd.
Owner: Zoe Wood


Directions: From Hwy 141 North bound - Mt Adams Hwy
  • Bear right at Chevron Station (road splits) in town and go about 1/8 mile across creek. fair warning - town is hard to recognize - a small market or two - that's all. This intersection is near the County campground
  • Left at 3-way intersection - look for sign to park. Go about 300 feet down driveway
  • Right at sign to Hollenbeck park.
  • Drive down old runway 1900 ft (see hanger on left) to end of the runway. Cross irrigation ditch.
  • Camping to the left - we get the area with the fire pit and picnic table.. Please be careful about water spigots.
Just go ahead and park. One of the owners will come by on a small motorbike to collect. They do not take plastic! Checks OK.

Dumping: there is no dump station here - but the County park - seen on map quest link does have a dump station. You may dump "not too gray" water out of the way. Don’t ask - don’t tell.

This place is not in any phone book and the directions are kinda like a treasure hunt. The owner works at a day job and does not advertise. Some portion of this land is a working farm.

Garbage: Must be packed out or taken to county collection station several miles away although last year there was a central collection point on the property.
Connectivity: last year we had decent ATT cell service
Rain: Be prepared - bring a book.
Wind Likely. Weather is changeable this time of year and could be chilly
Waiting list: Please let me know if you are interested in attending and unable to get a spot. This rally location has limited parking space but once the list is full we may have cancellations - anything is possible.
Cancellations: If you cannot make it please let me know - there will a waiting list to attend.

here's a mapquest map

Meals and activities:
Meal planning will commence on the next post.
Planned activities - none.
Suggested diversions:
There are great hiking trails, good biking, an ice cave and white water kayaking nearby if you are so inclined.
Kite flying - excellent conditions
Long walks
Jamming - Change your strings, tune 'em up and join in.
Mountain Gazing - amazing views - bring a chair.

MEAL PLANNING and Awesome VOLUNTEER opportunities
This post will be updated as folks sign up - please check back often.

We will have group meals on Friday and Saturday night as well as Sunday morning. There is the possibility of a Sunday night potluck as well - especially if someone wants to organize it. You are however free to make your own plans if a better offer comes along. We'll bring a couple of big outdoor stoves and cooking gear which are available to use. Assistance with scullery work and a brave person or two to organize camping fee collections would be appreciated.

Please bring your own plates and utensils to each meal as well as your own drinks. Facilities are limited and so we need to keep clean up really simple (no hot water). I'll update this post with food signups...

Thursday night: A few of us may come on Thursday and you are on your own for dinner.

---

Friday night: Wiener Night! An easy Friday meal for those who braving the Friday afternoon traffic rush. We'll supply Kosher dogs, veggie dogs and buns for all but could use some condiments, chips, sides and dessert. You are responsible for your own drinks.

Sides:
Condiments : caddygrn
Dessert:

Saturday dinner | What would Julia Cook night! Break out the butter and channel your inner chef but please be mindful of the house rules (just a reminder): NO ASPIC! You are responsible for your own utensils and drinks.

Sunday B-fast: Eggs cooked to order and ham.
Good additions would be: Juice, picante bits for eggs, grated cheddar, hot cinnamon rolls or breakfast breads (several pans), fruit. Please sign up via PM or post to this thread.

Sunday Cocktail Event: Airstream Trivia Team Tussle Bring your drinks and brightest minds for an Airstream themed trivia throw down. Weather permitting we'll make popcorn.
