Hi Donna, Jessica and I will be coming up to Astoria on Thurs., Oct. 1st, hoping to be able to see some escape trailers (and others) , and to ask questions about what options are most useful, etc. . We're staying at a motel in town . Our Escape 19 is due in Feb., and our build sheet needs to be in by Nov. 9th . We look forward to meeting you and hope this all works out . Dennis

You are absolutely welcome to join us Dennis & Jessica. Not only for the trailer tours, but the dinner-on-the-stick night/beer exchange and pot luck on Saturday. See the schedule I posted, just above in the thread for more info.

See you there! :thumb

Quite the event here at Fort Stevens State Park in Oregon. More than 70 fiberglass trailers. With this many people the potluck is altogether bounteous. Here's a pic (I already had my fill) taken from the bed of our truck across the way from Donna D's site.

Meanwhile, the boys guarded Toto's master bedroom suite.

Quick visit...

Coming to the NOG on Thursday, probably wasn't the best planning, as many weren't even there yet . But it fulfilled a purpose for us . We got to see different Escape trailers, look at various options, and ask a lot of questions . And as a big bonus, we got to meet a lot of really generous people, who kindly showed us their trailers . Thanks to all who talked with us and showed us around . It really helped us make some decisions on our build list ! Our 19' won't be finished until Feb., but we're looking forward to seeing you all possibly at the Bandon gathering next Spring . ( or is it in Summer? )
Dennis and Jessica

What an absolutely terrific time I had! Thanks to all of you for helping me to make memories. I'm so sorry, if I didn't get around to speaking with you in your site. Best intentions, but you probably know how it goes. Start out walking and visiting. Two hours later, I had only been to four sites.

Here's the statistics:
People: 135
Sites: 72
SOB: 4
U-Haul: 1
Parkliner: 1
Trillium (Outback): 1
Hunter cousins - : Compact II & Trails West Campster: 2
Boler: 2
Burro: 4
Bigfoot: 5
Scamp: 12
Escape: 19
Casita: 21

People came from Oklahoma, Texas, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and British Columbia

We voted to go to Cape Lookout State Park (outside Tillamook) for next year's Fall NOG. Sometime between now and January, I'll get down to the park to scope it out.... find a big, flat site near the restrooms and talk to the park rangers. I'll also see if there's any shelter that we might be able to use if the weather is less than stellar.

I'll post the findings when I make my reservations sometime after the second week of January. Fall NOG will be held the second weekend in October.

Until next time, safe travels... always.

Absolutely. Tyler and Wally run the place -- we just make the payments.

Thanks, Donna, for a wonderful "not-organized" gathering.
And thank you so much, NOG'ers, for your gracious hospitality to us "newbies".
We had a wonderful time meeting so many of you, visiting, and seeing the array of FG.

We're sorry we missed the Saturday night event (but it was the correct choice to get on home). Yes, we're the ones who rolled out at 0515 hrs.

Thanks again.
