2015 Spring NOG - Northern Oregon Gathering - April 23-26

April 23-26, 2015 — L.L. Stub Stewart State Park
(Vernonia area - West of Portland, Oregon - about 34 miles)


Lots of discussions about the NOGs at the Oregon Gathering this past week...so, it must be time to start the planning for Spring 2015. The traveling roadshow is moving back to L.L. Stub Stewart. We've been there for both spring blooming and fall colors. This time we're hoping for no rain! Be sure to checkout everything the Oregon State Park system has to say about the park. Find the information here including reservation information: L.L. Stub Stewart StatePark : http://www.oregonsta...rg/park_255.php


Originally I thought we'd go to west this time, but discussion with others at the OG… we've decided to go back to east for more sun. So, we'll be starting in Dairy Creek Camp EAST and if we fill it up, we'll start into the west camp. I've chosen site 80 (same as the last two times).


As usual I'll keep a park map updated and a list of names going for those that have made reservations on the CasitaForum. So, post away! BTW: I'm coming early again. I'll pull in on Wednesday and stay until Sunday afternoon... if anyone cares to join me early!

Be sure to let us know if you're newbies to egg gatherings and everyone start planning/making your name tags!

Please just post on one forum if you're coming. You don't want to confuse me!

We'll be in site 89 starting on the 22nd. This will be the first gathering we join with our new 21 (due to hatch this November). We'll be the ones taking an hour to back into our site. Well, maybe we'll have it down to 50 minutes by then. :-) Can't wait to try Frisbee golf...

We will be in site 76 from the 23rd. Doug - we were in your shoes at last year's NOG with our brand new 21. It was our very first time backing up but we had several people help us with maneuvering into the site and we learned so much about our trailer on that trip! You are going to love your 21 and the fiberglass community is great.

Hi Donna, We finally made up our minds and reserved a site for the gathering. Since we waited so long we couldn't get into the upper area, but Arlene and Tom be there in site #2 with our Escape 21.
Thanks, Tom

I just saw this and Jeff&I decided to join in! We'll be in site 52 from Thurs-Sun. Hopefully I actually remember that and we don't show up on Friday wondering why there's an RV in our spot... (Thank goodness the people at Champoeg were great and stuck us in another site!)

Doubtful you'll make the same mistake twice!

Two, yes TWO cancellations have come to me for East! If anyone is interested in moving from West to East or hasn't made reservations and needs a site, contact me via PM.

THE Schedule of events such as it is... This is the Spring NOG. While it's referred to as the Northern Oregon Gathering, I kinda prefer Not Organized Gathering

Daytime hours are completely unscheduled. Feel free to do what you wish, sleep in, hike, go to town, play cards, sit-and-visit, etc., etc. As far as trailer tours, nothing scheduled for that either. If you see folks sitting outside, stop and chat and ask to see their trailer. I've found most folks have an informal open house.

DON'T FORGET TO BRING/WEAR A NAME TAG.

Please wear it all the time. We have some new folks to the NOG... it seems like the polite thing to do.

BTW, I’m suspending the raffle for this one gathering. I’ll make it up to y’all at Fall NOG.

No-host dinner on a stick roasting fire going at my site (80) on Friday night.
This is not a potluck, bring everything you need. Fire will be roaring in the NOG tub, come by anytime after 5:30pm. And the biggy:

CRAFT BEER EXCHANGE
7PM SHARP
FRIDAY NIGHT
This is an "opener" event.
Bring a six pack of craft beer, trade one bottle or can for a different kind.

Everyone is welcome at anytime to anything. If you're not a beer drinker that's perfectly okay. Please bring your lawn chair and join us anyway. Beer/food is secondary to the good times we'll have around the NOG tub.

Saturday potluck at my site (80) 6pm.
Bring a food item to share that feeds 6-10 people, your table service and lawn chair. I'll supply the garbage bags for trash. Does anyone have a folding table they can bring? I don't think one picnic table and one folding table will be enough to hold everything... and if you have a stick or two of firewood to share at the NOG tub, that would be grand.

Hope this helps with some questions. Post if not, we'll get the question answered.
