Sat September 22 at 4:00 PM, flock and fiber festival - goat obstacle course
694 NE 4th Ave, Canby, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
There's a flock & fiber fest on the weekend of September 22 & 23. Meetup and/or weekend bike trip and/or camping?
Any interest in any of the following:

1. Meeting up at the fest. (I want to see the Goat Obstacle Course on Saturday at 4pm.)

2. Bikepooling down to the event (leaving Portland on Saturday morning, returning Sunday. 30ish miles each way. We're relative slowpokes who like picnicking and will be hauling a spinning wheel on the return voyage)

3. Camping at Champoeg or the festival campground. I favor Champoeg, which is known to have a great bike camping site, complete with power outlets, blackberries, and outdoor kitchen.

I'd be game to meet up at the festival and picnic/feast upon the tasty snacks.

Oooooh -- I really want to do this, but September may be crazy-busy with work. I'll know more closer to the time!

So when we were on bike tour recently, I noticed that pretty much every campground we pulled into had a "campground full" sign that we hiker/bikers didn't have to worry about. So if anyone is interested in camping but uses a motor vehicle, that might be the sort of thing that needs to get figured out before September?

That sounds like a fun motorcycle trip. I'll look into getting a side car in case I bring home a lamb or two.

We're bringing a couple friends! It's an official bikepool.

Those friends planned too far in advance! They have been replaced with a different friend, who is a "maybe." Rumor has it this weekend is supposed to be sunny!

Secretariat: Saturday afternoon? Or Sunday morning? We'll be there for both of those.

Let’s stick with Saturday, 4pm at the Goat Obstacle Course! I think that sounds interesting.

I’m at a picnic table.

I went home! Sorry I missed you, I did catch a few goat agility trials though! Fun!

I was there at 4pm but I had only recently arrived and was shopping. I am sorry I missed the ‘meetup’ part.

We didn't have internet access at the fest, and by morning-of we were already offline. Sorry we missed y'all! OMG the FLOOFY RABBITS!
