Ha - LOL. Sounds like CCD envy to me - I'm coming a day early and bringing a camera.
Not to worry - there are several pull through sites for those who have well endowed trailers... If there isn't room for parking tow rigs - we'll sell em on ebay. Cheap.

Haahaa!

You guys crack me up! I'm only two feet shorter than you, Jim (remember, it's not the size of the trailer but.....). I'm sure I'll be parking sideways like you too! I'll be coming later on Thursday. Anybody know what section we should look for sites? Jim, what day are you coming?

Tulips - Jim, I HIGHLY recommend the sight... it really is unbelievable how much color there is. Bring your camera!! However, I just heard last night that the flowers have already started to bloom, sometimes they harvest them early, and by the end of the festival, the impact is lessened. I'll let you know more when I find out more. I'd let you stay over at our place in Seattle, but the parking patrol is fairly strict around here (we do have a pullout bed, but I think you'd be more comfy in the trailer). I'm sure I could put you up at my inlaws in Bothell if you are interested (there's parking available there) which is about 1.5 hrs from the tulips. Deception Pass State Park is supposed to be breathtaking, and is close to the fields too. Rain is an issue though - the fields are clay like, which can get mucky. I'd look at the forcast and shoot for that. Midweek is also better for a decrease in the crowds. You might want to shoot for seeing them prior to the rallys.

Tulip Time!

Hi Jim,

Check out this site. If you click on "Field Map", it will show you what fields are currently in bloom. They are definitely getting an early start this year.

www.tulipfestival.org

I'll second the recommendation for Deception Pass - it's beautiful there, with fantastic hiking trails, and will give you a break from the crowds at the festival.

Mel

Hi All!

If there's not room for trailer and tow vehicle, there's a big paved parking lot a very short walk from the RV area, and I'm sure you can leave the tow vehicle there. However, some of the pull throughs look pretty large to me, but I have such a small trailer, everything looks large!

Dave and I are currently working on our latest theater production, which starts this weekend - see www.vancouveronstage.com for more details if you like. So with set building taking up most my time, I haven't gotten anything done on the Caravel. I don't know how finished it will be for the rally, but all the furniture is back in it. I might not have a heater though!

And I wanted to let you guys know I WON'T be going to Lincoln City the following weekend. Turns out it's the same weekend as Novice Race School at PIR, and if I want to race in Autocross this year, I have to go to that instead

Too many hobbies, so little time! See you at BG Lake!

Sounds good. I think we shouldn't have to worry too much about reserving spots for people. Who's not expecting to be there until after work on Friday? We'll grab a couple spots for specific people we know are coming late. Like Marc & CampCollector? Speak up if you need a spot held!

Mel and Marc.....Thanks for the info,

I've made reservations at Deception Pass SP for 7th-10th of April....looks like a great place to stay! Hope we hit the tulips blooming....and sun shining! We're not sure what we'll do after the 10th.....may stay longer if no one reserves the spot and we find more things to do. Still planning on arriving at BG SP on Thursday the 14th......but may come earlier (so we can pester Steph & David) if we run out of things to do in Skagit Valley.

BTW.....Mel, can you make the BG rally? We'd love to have you!

Jim

Yeah, show up too early and you may get a hands-on lesson in Caravel restoration

Talking Fishing Contest?

Well were going to be at a lake, a lake has fish in it.
I thought we might have a Fishing Contest.
I would be willing to get it together and furnish the prize if there is some interest.
What are your thoughts on this?
Saturday morning no holds barred Biggest fish takes all.

Gary....

OK......so tell me.....what's the prize.....a free lug nut torque wrench check on my trailer.....maybe a lesson on how to winterize an AS........or, even better, how about some tunes from your "gitfiddle"?? Are there any fish markets in the town of BG ("no holds barred" )?? I hate to say this but I don't even own a fishin' pole....and I'm retired!!

Late?

Ok - so I'm working Wednesday night, sleeping a bit on Thursday, then hoping to head out of Seattle by about 5:00 - arriving in the evening on Thursday. Projects? Well....

I almost have my water pump install done, and then I'm going to tackle my furnace ($$) issues. I hope to get it working, but a new one may be in the cards ( : < ). I did get 99% of the paint off the trailer - the turn in weather has left me with uhhhh, semi - white endcaps. I did stop to do a quick shine on the door. I'm feeling encouraged. Gary - remind me to have you talk me through your intelli-wizard while I'm there. I think that may be my next project.

I'll be looking for the trailers there already!
Marc

Talking Ya Mon!

Jim
Yes , Ok, Janet and I are bringing intruments to the rally, if you need a torque job on the lugs we'll do that first thing.

Mark
The Intella power is a piece of cake, we'll talk.

Looking forward to a rest from work, been doing a lot of 10 to 14 hour work days since New Years day, pulled a 20 hour shift Tuesday.
Fishing, making Music, and just shooting the !@#$ will be great.

I'm up for a fishing contest! Actually, I'd be more up for fishing lessons, since if I caught anything that would be a first!

Darol is rounding up all his AS friends to join us. He says two of the couples are musicians, bluegrass and old-timey music. Sounds like we have the makings of a hoe-down. That should clear out any pesky non-AS campers cluttering up our campground!
