Hello from southern Oregon

My husband and I just discovered this forum by accident the other day while searching on the internet. What a lucky find for us! We just bought a 2005, 25 ft. Nash TT with a dinette slide. It's the 4th TT for us since 1978, but the 1st with a slider. We took it camping at Bullards Beach State Park Campground last week for our practice run, and enjoyed it greatly, until the tsunami sirens went off at 4am for us to evacuate! What an experience hooking up the not so familiar trailer in the dark, while totally stressed over the upcoming tsunami! But, we made it, and it turned out to be not so dangerous for us, and all is well. We love our trailer, and hope to take it out again, soon, on a less exciting but more relaxing trip!
Both, my husband and I are retired, and plan on camping often. We tend to stay within Oregon's borders, but would enjoy straying outside once in awhile.
We have enjoyed since finding the forum, all the posts and excellent advice that people share. Thank you so much for this site.... Sincerely, Mike and Diane

Mike and Diane:

WELCOME to the iRV2 forums. Glad to have ya aboard.

BOY!...evacuating at 4 in the morning must have been kinda exciting. Glad all went well for you. Your Oregon coast area is a wonderful place for using your most recent rig. That's gotta be one of the MOST beautiful coastal areas.

My wife (Lynette) and I are also retired and sold all back in 05 and have been on the road full time ever since. It's been a HOOT!! You guys gotta think about expanding your travels a little. There's so many great places to visit.....even outside of Oregon !!

Again, WELCOME to iRV2. Don't hesitate to post often.

Keep heading north. The Washington coast is nice, too. We were on the Oregon coast last October, until I had a mishap with the driver's door. We started out at Cape Blanco and got as far as Lincoln City before my back problem became difficult to manage. The weather turned nasty, too, so we headed out through McMinnville and home.

We's originally planned to go all the way north to Astoria, and then decide whether to continue on 101 to Port Angeles and come back to Anacortes on the Port Townsend ferry or to shorten the trip by heading across to Bremerton.

We may go the other way next time!

Welcome to the forum and happy travels.

thank you

Thank you for your feedback. We're hoping to someday get farther afield in our traveling. Right now, we are keeping our eye (s) on my 88 year old mother who lives alone nearby. She's still independent, but needs someone to assist her frequently. For now, we are keeping pretty much closer to home. This summer, we have been invited to camp up near Mt. St. Helens...... can't wait! Hopefully our luck with the tsunami warnings, won't follow us to the sleeping volcano! LOL
This forum is fantastic and I am still reading on the pages of helpful hints. Might take me awhile! Thanks again. Diane and Mike

Mike and Diane,
In mid May we are planning a "Meet and Greet" up in Anacortes,WA and if the two or three of you can make it, we would love to meet you (info. to follow).
We are hoping to get together and camp many more times in the future.
This is a new iRV2 group and we are still getting things set up.
************************************************** *******
Finally have determined when and where Spring Meet and Greet will be.
Dates for Meet & Greet will be 12 - 15 May 2011.
Location will be at the Pioneer Trails Rv Resort,
Anacortes, Wa. Pioneer Trails RV Park

The park has reserved 26 sites for iRV2 members. When you look at their site map Row A and B are reserved for us. Row B is pull thru and Row A is Backin. All site are 50/30 amp, water, and sewer. Each site comes with 79 channel cable TV and Wifi.

Reservations can not be made until the first week of January 2011. When making your reservation tell them you are with the iRV2 group. Telephone number for park is 360-293-5355.

If you plan on attending please email me at jackgibbs@q.com will get more sites if needed. I hope they are.

Park will provide us a meeting room at no cost. If weather is good we can use the cabana. (see site map)

If you have any comments or recommendations PLEASE email those to me also.

Larry and Rita also Frankdamp are working up a list of things to do in the area, if you know of anything please let us know.

Will provide a list of each attendee to everyone, therefore, when you reserve a site again I need the information.

To ensure a name tag is made for you Please provide the following information to me for each person coming with you:

Well that’s it for now. If you need more information let me know. I'm sure we will have Happy hours daily and at least one potluck dinner and maybe a ladies breakfast. (men cook for the ladies)

Do hope to meet a lot of you.

Stay in touch and we will try to start an e-mail news letter.

Again we would like to see you and yours
