Next Northwest GTG

So........
We've talked about doing another GTG since the Lake Sammamish GTG. Any ideas when & where for this summer? Anybody know of a good park near the Washington/Canada border?(either side)

I am up for anything. I am even willing to have another GTG next month if anyone is up for that.
As for this summer, Lake Samish sounds good to me. The only time that won't work for me is August 16th, since my friend would be upset if I miss his wedding.

I think some of our CAN friends wanted something a little closer to them. I believe that Bellingham was even suggested.

As for time, I'm free for the most part except for July. My p's are coming back to the States so I will be with them here, then in Chicago.

Closer to or in Canada would be fine with me, although that might limit the number of Washington people that would come. Bellingham might be a good compromise. At this point, most any time would be fine for me also.

So how does sometime in either June or August sound? I know Rick's daughter is getting married sometime this summer, I think sometime around mid August, around the same time as my friends are getting married, so I think that would work out.

I think it is a great idea that we are starting to plan out the GTG several months ahead of time. I hope we can get even more people to come to this next one. It would be great if several more Unimogs would show up this next time around .

June is a bit busy for me. My youngest has her High school graduation, and we're leaving for vacation the last week. Yeh, and August 16th is my daughters funera.....er...wedding
But other than that I'm open. (I'll be up in Lynden on Aug 2nd for my antique tractor club meet anyway, so would be easy to go to that in the AM, then cruise on to where ever we decide to meet from there for the afternoon)
As willing as I'd be to go further north, even into BC, I realize I'm about the furthest north of you all. Bellingham seems to be a good location distance-wise for everyone. I just hate to always make the BC folks be the ones to fight the border crossing. But if they're willing..........

Aug 2nd sounds like a good day to me. My friend's grand parents live in Sumas (the one that is getting married), so I might bring him along if we meet in the Bellingham area.

Aug 2nd seems to be a good date for me. Any location is fine, also.

So, Aug 2nd at Lake Samish park, for now.
It's still a ways off, so any other ideas are welcome still. Let's try to get at least as many as we had last month
Eric, let me know if your gonna take a cruise up there. Maybe we could caravan a couple old diesels up I-5 together

I invited jassz to it, but she doesn't want to cross the boarder.

Rick, I will let you know when I take a cruise up there. It looks like that might not be until mid-May. All of the sudden I am going to busy for the next 3-4 weekends.
