On this day we traveled north into Oregon to the Oregon Gathering of the Fiberglass Trailers. The event was held at Bullard Beach State Park near Bandon, Oregon. This was the sixth such gathering and over 140 trailers with over 250 people attended. There were 14 different types of fiberglass trailers of all ages. In attendance were three other couples from the Dallas Fort Worth area and attendees from Virginia, South Carolina, Montana, Washington, and California. There were many Casitas like ours, but also older fiberglass trailers that had been updated. One afternoon was spent touring the trailers and there were some very interesting ones. I have included pictures of a few, the 1972 Compact Jr., and the 1960 Geo are amazing. The Geo was built in LA and only 5 were built. Priced at $8,000, when the average house was $13,000, they did not sale. This one had been found in a barn totally trashed and the man has totally restored it.
All kinds of activities were planned - Del attended a Dutch Oven cooking class, so I'm anticipating some great meals. We spotted a trail with a sign that read "Ocean - 3/4 mile". One and a half mile walk is no big deal I thought, not realizing that the whole trail was sand and extremely hilly. It was like something out of "Chariots of Fire". Thought we would never get back, but the ocean was massive and beautiful.
These 4 days were fun, the weather cool and we met nice people. Tomorrow we head for Crater Lake National Park.
