Both my beds are taken in my RV, unless we get cozy and fold out the dinette bed. Mikey still has space though last I heard

I'm thinking about camping at the KOA on Oakville Rd. About 9 miles from MikeyC's address. It's about $100 for the whole stay. Any thoughts on that place?


I have heard its a nice place. If your bringing an RV just park in the parking lot with the others, or just grab a bed in one that is already here. If you just have a tent pitch it in my back yard. We have options.

I regret to have to do this, but I have to change my status to not going. I have my vacation approved, but there is a possible issue with my wife's pregnancy. They are still doing tests, and she has two appointments scheduled for the 14th and 17th. I feel it would be inappropriate if I had my mother watch my two boys and take my wife to her appointments while I go riding all weekend. Maybe next year. . .

That's the right thing to do Patrick. We wish you and your wife the best for a healthy, happy and VERY GOOD LOOKING baby!

Less than 2 weeks to go! Both rides are excellent! You WILL enjoy them!

KitsapRider will be unable to make it. I preran our Friday ride and one of the planned bridges is closed so we will only cross 5 bridges and see 2 more. Lunch should happen at 1pm if my timing is correct.

The covered bridge and ferry tour! Kickstands up promptly at 9am. We will be crossing the Buena Vista ferry and on to several other historic covered bridges in the mid-Willamette Valley with a stop for lunch overlooking Foster Lake. After lunch we will have a scenic ride back to the start point with a stop overlooking the valley. After the ride we will meet back at the start point. We can decide on a place to go for dinner as a group. You can just do the ride or meet afterwards and just dinner and visit and decide on breakfast the next morning. This ride will be about 160 miles in length. (edit - one bridge will be closed mileage slightly shorter.)

We will have BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs along with side dishes and visit after our ride. Join us for the ride or meet for BBQ afterwards or both!

No one but me unless Bullstang is coming. Haven't heard a word from him since he confirmed. My son was talking last night about coming, but DK if he will stick with his interest.

I've meaning to get back to you. Put me in the YES column.

Thanks for the offer of the trailer, but I actually like camping. I like my set up and I don't get to use it enough. And I'll be bringing it all anyway.

I'm looking forward to the trip. I've been needing to go on vacation for a while. See you all in a couple of weeks!

Sweet! There is tent space next to the office as well. You're going to roll in Thursday aren't you?
