I was right, Fran and Dave, we don't have the tools or the smarts. No sewing machine here and the only sewing I do is very rare by hand. No doubt the material can be sewn by hand though.

What do you cut the PVC with? Have to have a place to put them and they would only be used in certain weather and when staying a while. Would have to have a good place to store them.

Speaking of Rain Camping - I'm thinking about camping this weekend not too far from home (Olympia WA) any ideas?

We're thinking of going out this weekend, too. Waffling between Cape Disappointment and Fort Worden State Parks. Belfair is nice, too, and closer... but we're going there this summer. The coast will be 5 degrees warmer than Ft Worden (so say the interwebs), but (for us) Ft Worden is an hour closer. Hmmm. Tough decision!

We're thinking about Cape Disappointment (or somewhere on the coast), but won't get there until Sunday.

We're camping at Ike Kinswa State Park just off exit 68 on I-5 this weekend (just Sunday and Monday nights though)! It's close and pretty, and it's my 35th birthday on Monday so I wanted to do something special. Husband has Monday and Tuesday off because of a weird fluke in the school year calendar.

Dang you guys, are killing us! Ft Worden and Cape D are 2 of our favorites! Although we are going to Cannon Beach next week and we have reservations at Cape D the first week of April. Dave dewinterized the trailer and we are ready to roll. Have any of you Washington folks camped at Rainbow Falls State Park? Thought it might be cool to go there when the fuschias are blooming...

We haven't camped at Rainbow Falls because we went and checked it out once. How do I say this nicely... It's one of the state parks that the lack of funding has basically killed! They never rebuilt the bridge connecting the two sides of it and the camping area is pretty bad in comparison to many other parks (Ike Kinswa and Grayland for example). I'd skip it!!

Uh - Last time I was at Rainbow Falls was over 50 years ago - mom, dad, 6 kids and a fox terrier in a canvas army surplus wall tent . My little sister caught a nice trout with a hand line tied to a stick my dad cut for her & I got skunked
Sorry to here the park has fallen on hard times
