    I'll be there. Those dates are about the best bets for sun on that part of the Washington coast!

    Hi Jan,

    I just googled it and it's not that far. Only 423 km or 263 miles. Depending on traffic around 5 hours. If you do decide to come on down I'd avoid Blaine and the Sumas crossings. When I go to Canada I almost always use the Aldergrove crossing to reenter the US.

    It will take my about 7 hours to get there from my house in Spokane.

    I hope you decide to come on down.

    Cheers,
    Norman

    Hi there fellow stovies,

    Bad new is since very few have committed to being at the stove gathering this next September I have canceled the gathering at Ocean City State Park.

    The Good news is the Coleman Collectors Forum is having it's Annual PNW Fall Campout at Rasar State Park near Concrete WA September 7 - 10 2018. For more information you can contact Murph at CCF.

    Cheers,
    Norman

    Sorry, I just felt that September was too far out to commit.

    To me, the farther out, the easier to commit. Sorry it's off.

    uh-oh! The Ocean City State Park Sept7-10 do/PNSG2 has been - - cancelled? -gulp!- Please confirm! I'm new to this group (May 2018), but could bring a pretty nice group of beloved/admired and functioning stoves, including Borde, the Primus 96 kero my dad and I took around Mt.Hood 3 different times yrs ago, the Optimus (kero) he and mom got for their honeymoon in 1928, and a small but nice group imho of maybe half a dozen others...

    It's canceled due to very few committing to being there.

    The good new is the Coleman Collectors Forum is having it's annual campout Sept 7-10. It will be help in Concrete, WA at Rasar State Park. So bring your stoves, lanterns and yourself because it will a very good event.

    Cheers,
    Norman
