Ocean Cove “Endless Summer” Coleman Gathering - here come the pictures!

#1

Post by FishNChips »

Randy did a great job putting this together. It was a great time! I took my time down and back as I enjoy seeing new country, visited Fort Ross, did some shore and kayak fishing, ate way too much, and enjoyed the company. It was great meeting so many members, and seeing so many GPAs!

The location was beautiful! It was sure nice to get out of the heat for a few day! I caught a 34” ling cod and lost another right at the kayak. Kept 7 rock fish for tacos 🌮 and released probably 15-20 other.

Great meeting everyone! Can’t wait for the next gathering!

Here are some pictures. For some reason the upload jumbled them all.

Great photos, Matt, absolutely terrific variety of them! Looks like a very nice place you all camped, and liking history, I liked the photos of Ft. Ross being included. Quite the fine representation of all sorts of GPAs, as well.
Some of my favorite of the great bunch you uploaded:
-The Northstar gumball machine :D
-The vintage styled teardrop camper
-The Tilley stove/lantern set in the case... :cf_thumbup: :cf_thumbup:
I hope everyone had a great time...sure looks that way.

I had half my stoves that no one saw.
Repo pup and I camped Thursday night up north by Garberville, a "bunch" of wickies in one store there. We camped at Richardson Grove SP. Drove down to this the next morning. Didn't save much time splitting up the drive, just two days of 7 to 5 hours of driving. Don't recall 36 west from Red Bluff being so dang windy and then from Bridgeville to Garberville the even more so Alder Point road, surprised my brakes still work. Good sportbike riders would really enjoy both, I've riden both on my bikes. 175 from Hopland to Clear Lake was more of the same.

@Majicwrench, cinnamon rolls faired better this time, I still need more practice. Keep the roll cold before opening, I left them out of my cooler before trying to pop the tube open, made a mess of the topping and raw rolls stuck together, so had to separate them with my fingers.

Nice Duane, those rolls look good. How do you like that Omnia? I have heard nothing but good things other than a little sticking from time to time. Good pictures.

Thanks all, I always enjoy taking a lot of pictures, figure they will be fun to look back on some day.

I have more pics but others covered the bases. The oven is the older Optimus mini oven, not the larger Omnia from what I have read. It needs more insulation from the heat at the bottom, need to be more creative I guess with aluminum foil or?
Dang GPS in the truck wanted to send me into Santa Rosa going home, so I only made a couple small errors in my return route. Don't know what I'll do in a few more years, forgot I needed to go thru Jenner first before heading east. My first small error, when the road quickly turned into a single lane, knew I messed up, so turned around after half a mile.

I’ve not had a bad campout with the Nor Cal crew. This one was definitely excellent though. So many great things happening and honestly, the Sonoma Coast is just a great spot. Talk of making this an annual gathering. So stay tuned for that. I didnt know about THIS thread and posted on the other. Many pics there too towards the end of page 2.
