I'm going to the Lincoln city rally - I say hopefully. I'm making a lot of plans considering my trailer is still gutted and we're going to be putting on a play at the end of March that will certainly slow down my progress.

Janet also noticed that the weekend of the 16th is spring break for her area, so that's why we're worried about having a get-together without reservations - it's possible the place could be busy. Our local kids seem to have spring break the first week in April.

Forums with WBCCI unit RallY?

Steph et al,
Could our Forums Rally rally be combined with the Western Oregon Unit (WOU) and Oregon Units (OU) Rally, who are already hosting a joint rally at Ocean View RV Village on the weekend of April 21-23. I know they're reserving about 20 spots for this...and they can reserve even more if we get on the ball. The fee is $25.45/night (slightly higher than SP CG's)..... and I don't know a thing about the RV Park, but assume it includes full hookups. I don't know whether or not non-WBCCI members can attend these functions, but if they make their own reservations, or if the two WBCCI units accepted forums members with open arms, I guess we're all there together anyway, and no Airstreamer is ever turned away (so I've heard, but it's good to let folks know we're coming). Aren't you an officer in the Oregon Unit? Do you know how these things work? We're members of WOU....but I don't know anyone yet. If the forums folks attending are not WBCCI members....the two units could maybe do some recruiting (Sometimes you have to spend money to get new members). I would really like to see the forums members again who were in attendance at Beverly Beach....but I would also like to meet some of the WBCCI members in the area also.

Just my thoughts on getting this put together! Please.....others give their input!

Jim

We are wiling to just show up at Battle ground and take our chances. If spring break in that area is earlier, then I suspect that reserving sites early on Friday would be fine. I am alos willing to go Jims route, but my experience with wbcci rallies is that, while they are fun, they are highly scheduled and that hanging around the campfire late saturday night just doesn't happen. It's an early to bed, early to rise crowd. So - I guess I still vote for battle ground. If they're out of space - I've got first dibs on stephs driveway!

There is plenty of room in the driveway I'm willing to go over to the park on Friday and reserve spots for whoever wants to come. So if you're willing to take the risk, I'd say we can go for it. I'll go check with the ranger and find out when they're stocking the lake with fish this year. It gets crazy-busy when they do that.

Jim, I thought about just combining with the Lincoln city rally too, but it's being held in one of those concrete parking lot type RV parks, I doubt they even have fire rings for a campfire. I will be going to the rally too though, and it sounds like Marc will also. Will you guys come?

I'm not an officer in the Oregon Unit, I just do the newsletter and the website. It's a nice group of people though. As far as I know, Annette, Camp Collector, and 71 Safari were the only people at the last campout who weren't WBCCI members. The majority was. I think they'd be welcome as guests either way.

Stephanie,
Check out Beacon Rock Rv park, or the RV park near Ridgefield Jct and I5.

Exclamation Lets gamble

I am willing to gamble on Battle ground lake. I know how to get people to leave the park ;-) I will just leave work early on Friday or take the day off and head up. Although just in case we should have a backup location if there are no spaces.

"The Lone Ranger" to the rescue!

Well, if anyone knows how to fanagle a camp site, it's Campcollector.....I feel better about our chances with him in our midst! I love to hear his tales of campers and their travails.....they're a riot! If my math is right.....that's four units so far....... this is starting to look like a Forums rally! So, it would be good to hear from some other AS'ers in the NW. Is there a way to PM some of them to let them know of the rally? I did talk to Tim McKay, the co-host of the WOU Rally, and he said we are welcome to come to the Lincoln City joint rally the week after if Battle Ground doesn't work out. But we need to let him know in a timely manner, so they can accomodate us.

Jim

Cool Top ten ways to illegaly hold a site

10. The old lawn chair in the campsite trick. (Keeps honest people away)
9. Short lenght of hose hooked to the stand pipe and some blocks of wood
8. Registration receipts stolen from fee station and clipped to site marker. ( 80% effective)
7. 1 dozen empty beer cans thrown around and a old diaper in the fire ring smoldering. (keeps away the neat freaks)
6. Doberman tied to table on 25ft chain (self explanitory).
5. Tow vehicle parked in site to hold for a freind. (90% effective)
4. Caution tape and orange cones "do not enter" (only works if no hosts or staff on duty)
3. Two man tent set up in site and no one around. (flawless keeps people and staff guessing for hours ) Add grocery sack of rocks to table for authenticity
2. Sewage spill and lime spread on ground. (works but not reccomended for immediate use)
1. Chalked outline of human figure on ground and shell casings.

I hear Tim's a good guy. I wonder if that might be a good idea. If they could stick us all together, we could probably still have fun without being too annoying. Campfire's the important thing, though I guess we could all pile into a trailer if it rained (gee, who's got a big enough trailer for that?).

When I went to the Silver Trailer social they had a more organized area where they were having snacks and watching movies, and campfires and sing alongs were breaking out on the other side of camp.

I wasn't going to email folks in the club because I don't want them to come to our get together instead of the other get together the next weekend. Because I got the names through the unit, and it's like using their information to steal people away to our rally, which isn't cool. But if we could ALL get together at one place, I wouldn't mind letting everyone know about it.

Top ten list

Hmm, I guess I'll have to think of some NEW ideas if Campcollector is THE MAN at a SP.... I like the chalk outline idea... think the kids pink sidewalk chaulk would work?

I say you guys go for Battleground, I'll shoot for Lincoln City hoping to see some of you there the next week. By the way, I'm hoping I'll have a silver surprise for you when I arrive.... OR it could be the sorriest looking trailer on the West Coast. I couldn't stand my paint anylonger, and started stripping! I'll let you know if the trailer can be seen in public or not.

But, what's with a concrete campsite? Are there at least trees? Do you have a name so I can investigate the place? I feel like I'm living at Lincoln City lately, I've been through it so much in the past year. Good outlet mall.
Marc

Ok then, we'll do it at BG Lake the weekend of April 15-17. Anyone who can get there a day early and claim their spot, do so - we'll probably get there nice and early Friday since we're so close. I have to say, most of the campers show up late Friday, after work, so as long as we make a move earlier in the day, we should be fine. If worst comes to worst, I really could fit quite a few rigs in our field next to the driveway!

When we get closer we'll figure out how many spots I (or someone else who's there early), needs to 'reserve' on Friday.

I'm not going to email everyone about this one, we'll keep it small so we don't have to worry about grabbing a bunch of spots. Everyone who was on the last campout was on the forum anyway, except Francis, so I'll email her and let her know about it.

We'll still see Marc & family in Lincoln City the next weekend - got to see that silver Argosy (if they let it in!)

Janet had a great idea for a campout at an arts festival in Trout Lake, WA in July. Sounds like fun!

My trio is playing at the Trout Lake arts fest july 16 and 17. Last year we camped at this county park - it was lovely - a little rugged - sort of state parkish. We will camp here again this year. The festival is nifty, there are ice caves nearby you can tour and it's at the foot of mount adams.

Mt. Adams Guler Trout Lake County Park
Trout Lake, WA, 98650
509-773-3900
45 campsites, group facilities, covered picnic gazebo, playground equipment, public restrooms, showers. Bring quarters for showers & firewood. No reservations except for the group facilities.

Looking forward to Battle Ground. Check back here for saturday dinner plans....
