The Northwest forums contingent does this 2 or 3 times a year. But there's just something special about October at Beverly beach... maybe it's because it's the last bash of the year, maybe it's the salt, maybe the road flare campfires.... I don't know - but it's great fun!

This year we had impromptu gatherings at Battleground State park and Troutlake OR as well. None of them have any official schedule other than a few community meals - a laid back good time.

I'm not one for planning too far ahead, but I think we should start thinking about doing Silver Falls next year. You probably have to plan way ahead to get in there. We'll discuss it at Beverly Beach.

I'm counting the days too...

Greetings.


Posting to reserve site 18 as well.

The inlaws decided they wished to go too. While they are not forum members, they are members of one of the Oregon airstream clubs. Can't recall off hand which. Some will recognize them from the joint rally at Lincoln City. They have a '55 Ford C60 vintage tow vehicle and a 23' '77 Safari.

I'm assuming that the list is up to date.

Yes, we remember them.
They were in the campsite next to ours at Lincoln City. I think they're members of the Western Oregon unit.

Look forward to seeing them, and their very special tow vehicle.

We're bringing ours.......it was a big hit at Belknap Hot Springs CG in August. I could've sold several to folks walking by. Maybe I'll start a second career selling these in campgrounds!

My husband was wondering if we need to bring costumes with it being almost Halloween? Maybe he would settle for a pumpkin carving contest.

We are currently having loads of fun trying to figure out what toilets will fit in the old girl. I think we will have to drive her to an RV place on Monday and just plop them down and see which ones fit. The specs on-line and on the boxes don't give enough information. It will be a tight fit.

Look at a sealand traveler lite model for a replacement potty - It was the only one we found that would fit in our tiny bathroom. You can view the specs on line at ppl - your local RV place can probably order it for you. We Love ours (in a totally platonic way of couse)....

Thanks for the specs. We're planning on a little camp out this weekend, with or without toilet, up the Icicle River in Leavenworth. Boondocking should be interesting. I guess we will be doing a bit of work on the water pump. We scoped out some sites this morning and ran into the Wet Westies, a covey of Westfalia VW vans. Quite a sight. The fall follage is well underway with a bit of frosting on the Cascades.

We're getting full! I sent out piles of tourist info to everyone today as well as site registration cards for those of you who prepaid. If you don't get your registration card in the mail you can pick it up onsite.

Site g-10

Site g-10 is renowned up and down the OR coast - there are references to it in literature and lore. It is said that each year after the seasons change, the land recedes in the site to reveal the dowry of the fair maid Beverly.

Beverley was sent across the seas from the East Indies and promised in marriage to an alchemist who resided in the Port of Astoria. This alchemist was said to have found the secret to turning wood into the most precious metal. Beverly's family was so taken by the thought of their daughter marrying a man who could generate an endless supply of this precious metal that they sent her with all the wealth they possessed.

They were to meet several miles North of Newport and be wed. Beverly arrived several days before the alchemist and made camp. She buried her families hard earned wealth for safe keeping. On the appointed day the alchemist arrived and they were married on the spot. But all was not well. After the ceremony she asked to be introduced to the secret ways of turning wood into precious gold. Her new husband explained in stunned surprise that he could not change wood to gold but rather into a more valuable metal - aluminum.

Despair over took Beverly and she cursed the lying alchemist for misleading her. She swore that if aluminum ever touched her fair skin that lightening would strike the spot were they were married. As the alchemist reached out his hand to sooth his new bride - a bolt of lightning cut though the trees, incinerating her dowry and burning a pit into the ground. They were both instantly killed and the aluminum that he valued above all else, flowed molten over the smoldering pile of dowry goods and their entwined dead bodies - forming a hollow orb.

As time passed, travelers began to use this metal "cave" as shelter from the sea weather in Newport. They reported that in foul weather the raw ocean air would stream over and around the shelter keeping those inside warm and secure.

One day a young inventor happened to hear of the amazing properties of this structure and made his way to Beverly's' Beach. He was taken with the smooth lines and functional features. He affixed wheels underneath the "cave" and hauled it away. He made it his life's work to pay homage to the fair maid Beverly and her unwelcome love by recreating their aluminum tomb. To this day on nights with no moons, you will see these mysterious orbs traversing the coast road....

Do you really want them to fill in the hole norbert?
