Coffee, etc....

Janet,
I'll bring the coffee(Caffienated).......but if you remember the last time....I borrowed a friend's 30 cup percolator and didn't get the right amount (kinda wimpy coffee).....so, if Steph knows how much coffee it takes to make a decent brew.....we've got it covered! Just returned from your fair state and took in the Skagit Tulip Festival.......SPECTACULAR!! Rained all the way up on Thursday.....then Friday we woke up to sunshine...........caught it just perfect....Friday was the day we saw tulips.....then just checked out the area around, Mt Vernon, Anacortes, Langley, and LaConner. Took advantage of tax free benefit of being an Oregonian......but had a hard time remembering how to pump my own gas!!!

Here are some pics of the Tulip Festival.......enjoy!!

We're really looking forward to seeing lots of "twinkies" in BG!!

I've been making coffee all week at the play (I'm in charge of concessions, among other things), so I think I can make a decent cup. I'll give it a shot, anyway! Someone else has to let me know if I get it right, because I don't drink the stuff myself

I would love to be able to at least stop by and say hi (thanks for the invite Stephanie) but I am buried at the moment. I have not even had time to work on my AS for quite a few weeks now. It is still not yet ready to go anywhere and I am not really sure when it will be. Keep me in mind for next time though.

Thanks,

Malcolm

We'll see you at the next one, Malcolm!

I swung by the park today to get a new pass for the year, and talked to the ranger. They just stocked the lake with a small load of fish. He says in a few weeks they're going to do the major stocking, but they dropped a few thousand big ones in there today!

I drove around the campground, and it was empty except for one spot with a truck camper. Looks like sites 13 and 15 are out of order, as there is a backhoe there digging up a waterline.

Hello all !

Well sad to say but, the Caravel is going to have to stay home. But I am coming up on Saturday ! I will bring my laptop with all the pics on it ( I haven't posted all of them on this site). I was wondering what kinds of refreshments do y'all like ? I could bring soda pop, beer, and some adult beverages. Maybe some bottled water too. Stef do you know if I can get a fishing lic. for Wa there at the park ? or maybe in BG itself ? I think one of my friends wants to come with. I think he wants to see a bunch of aluminum in one spot, lol. See you all there.

Looked at the weather report and it looks like good old west side weather for the weekend. Oh Boy, I get to rust again.

The fishing contest is still a go, and the prizes will blow your mind.

I will be bringing 2 canopies so things will be high and dry for dinner and breakfast.

1.5 days to vacation. Yahoo!

I've got a little canopy too. Bring your raingear for hanging out with a pole by the lake!

If you need a fishing license, you can get it at the Ace hardware next to Safeway in Battle Ground.

Serviced sites

BGSP Mini-Rallyers!
I see on the website Battle Ground State Park there are only 8 serviced sites (sites 12-20) in the whole campground......and some with water only. Should we shoot for trying to congregate in that area if we want some kind of service? I suppose it would be advisable to bring our generator in case there are no electrical hookup sites available. What is everyone else prepared for......Boondocking if no serviced sites available??

Jim

I was planning to boondock, but nothing's working in my trailer right now anyway As I mentioned above, there's a backhoe diggin up #13 and #15, where the water is, so don't count on that. There's also a little restrooms/bathhouse building. Might want to bring your generator and we can hog the spots closest to the facilities.

We will also bring a generator and are prepared for "roughing" it if needed. Maybe the better question is: Is there anyone coming that absolutely has to have services? If so maybe we should be sure to park appropriatly.

Here is a map of the place. The orange sites are serviced, Red can't be reserved and Blue are buildings. Circle = small, triangle = M, sguare = large, X = XL site sizes.

There is a h2o tap near sites 9 and 8 and near 34 and 35 - we're gonna aim for 9 or 11 or...?

Campsites

Although we would prefer a serviced site, we would take a standard site if others absolutely need electric and water, and if the serviced sites are mostly taken. It would be helpful to know from those attending who can and can't boondock and try to reserve those sites with services for rallyers who definitely need electrical and water and can't boondock. This would keep everyone happy, and hopefully prevent the need for moving trailers around after being settled.

Those photos are beautiful, Jim. I am impressed!

I've been following the discussion on the BG rally but I've been too bummed to post because I can't make it. I really wanted to see all you guys from the Oregon rally and meet some new people too. Oh well, next time.

If any of you venture down this way (southern arizona) stop in and say "hi". I'm having a difficult time tearing myself away. And just a side note: my Tradewind has been a perfect home (even though a 25' CCD would be more perfecter - ok, that's the last time I'll say that, I promise).
