I just received this note from Oregon State Parks:

Our records show that you have an upcoming reservation at L.L. Stub Stewart State Park. A forest thinning operation at the park is continuing through the end of April. During the project, helicopters will be used to fly the trees out of the operation area.

The disc golf course, and all hiking, biking, and horse trails will be closed Monday through Friday, but remain open on the weekends. The Discovery Depot will be completely closed during the project. The helicopters will not fly over the campground.

If you have any questions about this operation please contact the park manager at 503-324-0606 X222.


Oh, dear. We will start Quiet Helicopter Acceptance Therapy with the terriers right away.

I got that too. I'm sure everyone that's registered did. I'm focusing on this:
"The helicopters will not fly over the campground."

I hope we see them, but not hear them. And it's possible they'll be done by time NOG rolls around since it's the last weekend of April.

At least they won’t be flying on the weekend, Friday might be a little noisy. Sometimes having your hearing fade is a blessing. Still looking forward to the event.

Typically if you can see a helicopter, you can hear it. The rotor inherently makes substantial beating noise that you don't get from the wings of a fixed-wing aircraft, and the power requirement means that a helicopter uses more engine power (and so makes more noise) than a fixed-wing aircraft of the same weight at cruise. I find helicopters interesting, but hearing them gets old fast.

We have a (rural) neighbor who has two small helicopters (a Revolution Mini 500 and a Robinson R22). From inside the house, with the windows closed, and I can tell you which one is flying by... and it never goes directly overhead.

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, ride your bike on the trails, 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. There is nothing scheduled for gift give aways for this NOG. BUT, I'd really like to see everyone wear a name tag all weekend. I'm meeting some of you for the first time. Help me to remember your name, please.

FRIDAY NIGHT NO-HOST DINNER-ON-A-STICK: The roasting fires will be going at the meeting hall outside. There are two elevated BBQs. Both will be hot! You may want to bring a chair though. This is not a potluck, bring everything you need, including your roasting stick. Come by anytime after 6:00pm.

The fun/funny stuff:

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 join us. Beer/food is secondary to the good times.

SATURDAY NIGHT POTLUCK: Serving of food will start SHARPLY at 6pm. Come a few minutes early to get your food on the table before serving starts. Bring an appetizer, entrée, salad or dessert to share that feeds 6-10 people AND your table service.

For the two events at the meeting hall, you may want to bring your lawn chair. Sitting outside is always preferable to being inside if the weather is dry and it's not windy.

The meeting hall, according to the park, will hold 50 people and there's a wood stove inside. If every site brought ONE stick of wood, we could have a nice fire going both Friday and Saturday nights. There's LIMITED parking down by the meeting hall. All the tent sites are currently reserved and most of the parking is for tenters use. So... carpooling (or drop off service) is encouraged!

Please, no pets at any of the food events.

I hope this answers questions you may have. If not, ask and we'll get it answered!
Safe travels everyone. Please bring SUN!

Thanks Donna, you're the best! I thought April would never get here! We are so looking forward to a great campout and seeing everyone (old and new friends).
Here's Travel Oregon's take on Vernonia (right up the road from the park).
https://traveloregon.com/places-to-go/cities/vernonia/
And, if anyone is interested in doing part of the Banks Vernonia Rails to Trails bike ride, maybe we could organize a shuttle (it's mostly downhill from the park) Here's some intrepid bikers from a few years ago..
