2014 Campout

We are very sad to announce that we will not be planning the Inland Northwest Vintage Trailer Campout this year.  Due to changes with the City of Newport, and our own personal time constraints, we just cannot make it happen.

Thank you to everyone who has contacted  us about this years' event.  We are so sorry that we will not be having it. 

Thank you again to all of you for attending last year.  We had an excellent time planning the event and meeting everyone in attendance.  Hopefully we will see some of you out and about camping in your wonderful trailers.

Who knows, maybe one of you will get the urge to plan a campout/rally in our area?!

2nd Annual Campout...Aug 2014

It's time to start planning your summer camping trips, it'll be here before you know it! 

We are planning on hosting the 2nd Annual Inland Northwest Vintage Trailer Campout again this year.  We are still checking the calendars and making sure we get the date just right.  The weekend will be close in timing to last year.  As soon as we get the date hammered down, we will get it posted!

Thanks for checking in, hopefully we will have more info SOON!

Happy Camping!

Thank you, thank you, thank you...

What an amazing weekend! 30 AWESOME vintage trailers attended.  What a wonderful turnout for our first year!  We're already talking about details for our 2nd ANNUAL Inland Northwest Vintage Trailer Campout.

It was so great of all you to attend.  You made the 1st Annual Inland Northwest Vintage Trailer Campout a HUGE success!  Each and everyone of you and your trailers were a major part of the weekend!  What an awesome group of people!
We had such a great time meeting all of you and seeing your wonderful trailers!  I loved each and every trailer (and owner)!  It was a great weekend of visiting, eating, playing cribbage, and "touring" the trailers. 
Hopefully you all had a good time this weekend and will consider attending again next year.  We are working on figuring out the exact date, but will try to keep it very close in timing. 
If you have any other suggestions or comments about the weekend, please shoot me an email, I would love to hear from you. 
Again, thank you all SO MUCH for coming!  We hope to see you again!
Please check back soon, as I'll post some pictures!

Three more days!

We were just at the campground working on the layout for this weekend!  We're getting pretty excited to meet all of you and your trailers!  Last minute shopping for supplies tomorrow, prep-work Thursday, and fun times Friday!

Don't forget to throw your yard games in your trailer.  There just might be some impromptu bocce, bean bags and croquet!  Maybe even a game of cribbage and backgammon thrown into the mix!

Oh yeah...don't forget about the $10 trailer related white elephant gift exchange!  We got our gift already, some lucky person will be happy to get it!
See you on Friday!

Planning, planning, planning!

Summer is under way, so that means we are busier than ever trying to get all the camping in!  There are so many places to go and so many fun things to do that it's hard to fit it all in. 

Even with all the camping and playing, our Vintage Trailer Campout is taking shape nicely.  We are getting more and more RSVPS (don't worry, there's still room for all of you who haven't RSVP'd yet!). 

If you have any ideas or suggestions for events/social hours for the campout be sure to email me.  We are looking forward to meeting everyone and their campers and are open to any suggestions of some fun things to do at the campout. 

We are in the works of putting together some nice welcome bags with area info for all the attending campers.  Your bag will contain some great places to eat and shop while visiting the Newport area.  The Pend Oreille County Fair is also happening the same weekend.  So if you are up for a little drive (about 20 minutes from the campout) you can check out the local 4-H projects at their finest!

If you are planning on attending and have not let me know you are coming, please email me so I can put your names on the list! Thanks!  See you in August!
