It was early to rise (at least for me on a trip) to get organized to take a group photo at 8:45AM. After that it was back to the trailer to eat breakfast & a shower. I went to a wood flooring workshop and after that started to make a blueberry pie for the pot luck dinner tonight. Hope it worked - it is the first time I tried making one in the toaster oven. I did notice that the usually first 10 minutes at 450°F didn't work - I had to turn it down after 5 minutes to keep from burning the crust. Still, at least from the outside it looks like a normal blueberry pie; we'll find out how it worked later.

We did trailer tours by loop during the afternoon. Lots of people stopped by to see the Escape 17B. Lots of questions, particularly about towing with the RAV4. After the A loop tours were over I grabbed the camera & headed for loops B & C for some interior photos. It is amazing how many different ways a tiny box can be organized into a comfortable living space. I particularly enjoyed seeing some of the interior rebuilds of some of the older trailers. Lots of loving work has gone into many of them. Photos of some of the interiors are on the Day 3 Oregon Gathering Page.

We had a great pot luck dinner, the pie worked out OK, a bit soupy but tasted normal, after which awards & prizes were given away. I got a plaque for the longest drive from the North and maybe what was the strangest "Prize" for the night - a dried Raccoon baculum, which is the bone in a Raccoon's penis. There is even a web page describing the history of the thing. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but is will be a conversation piece!

Anyhow, a great time was had by all.
