Jim, So sorry we didn't get a chance to say farewell to you, Lisa and Jasper. Really enjoyed meeting you! Stay safe in all your travels and, if you're ever down in the weird, wacky Santa Cruz area, let us know.

It was great meeting you guys too, and we will definitely be back down the coast. Once I finally retire, we want to do the whole US west coast. Maybe even down into Mexico.

What happened in Manzanita is so very sad. A town of 600 residents and 128 homes damaged. There's far more vacation homes in Manzanita than full-time residents... but still....

I realize natural disasters happen everywhere. I just feel extra affinity for this area because of the four NOGs we've held at Nehalem Bay State Park. We supported those small business and owners.

Manzanita is a very nice town. We really enjoyed our visit there.

Where is Fall NOG 2017 going to be?

We unfortunately had to cancel at the last minute (literally, as truck & trailer were loaded) after I hurt my back loading the dog in the truck to leave.

Right NOW, it appears to be Silver Falls State Park. BUT, I need to take a road trip to see if there's any usable shelter for the food events. I'll be posting in January (soonest we can make reservations) the definitive answers.

I'm sorry you missed it. We had fun, rain (no tornadoes!) and all.

We are headed to Silver Falls today for a couple nights. Let me know if you need me to scout out any potential shelters.

ooooh, THAT would be great! I would like your impression of these... attached (more than anything), since you were at Fall NOG and saw the meeting hall, etc.

If you can't get to it, I thoroughly understand, honest. I thought I'd go down after the first of the year.

Please respond by PM, so we don't derail this thread.
