Northwest Lazy Daze GTG

Baker City, OR

We made it to the small town of Baker City, OR for the Northwest Lazy Daze GTG.  It was great fun and I met a lot of new friends there as well as seeing some old friends as well.  The weather when we arrived was windy but the second day day was great.

Here is a pic of an entire row of LD’s that were parked at the Mt. View RV Park.  It was really cool seeing so many LD’s all lined up.

Meetings and potlucks

We had our meetings and potlucks here.  The group also supplied breakfast.  What a deal!

Some of us were working

John received a new turret for his satellite TV.  I helped him replace it as he has done so many things for me over the years.  We got it all hooked up and he fired it up and it still would not work correctly.  What a bummer!!!  They are going to send him a new unit once he gets home to Colorado.

Learning Genealogy

Donna was teaching the fine points of genealogy.  I have done some work on archives.com but was not very good at it.  She gave all her students a packet with lots of great ideas on how to create your family tree.

There was also a GTG with Pete Reed for all those that were going on the Canada trip.  We all went through our Itinerary together and everyone had a lot of questions.  We are all very excited for the trip to begin.

Oregon Trail Interpretive Center

A few of us went up to the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center outside of Baker City.  It was a very fascinating place and very informative.  Here are a couple of pics from the center.

Thank you Northwest Lazy Daze

I want to thank everyone in the Northwest Lazy Daze group.  I had a wonderful time and met many new faces as well as some I had met previously.  It was a great time.  I apologize for posting this so late, but the Internet service since then has been really lousy.

  1. It’s so neat to meet up with people who have rigs like yours an exchange ideas an discuss problems. Have fun in Canada.

  2. Jim…when does your group begin their Alaska drive? We are going in July and was hoping you were ahead of us so we could know what you are seeing/doing. Is there anyone in your group doing a daily blog? Thanks.

  3. Baker City is a place we would like to get back to again. We drove through on our way home a few years ago, but didn’t have time to stop. Next time we will make the time. Great to see the LD’s all together. You will enjoy your Canadian trip, and we will look forward to seeing lots of great photos, when you can post them. Internet can be spotty, but don’t let that be a problem. Enjoy seeing everything and taking photos to remind you where you were, then share them when you can. Have a safe trip.
