Reservations for Farewell Bend - June 26-28

Good morning, Tumbleweeds. Hope everyone is having a good day! I'm THIS CLOSE 🤗 to being on my 6-week summer break so I'm getting a bit antsy! 😂

I just did some checking on reservations for Farewell Bend, the campout on June 26-28. Jim and I may be able to make it on Saturday, leaving on Monday. 

Seems ReserveAmerica for Oregon is accepting reservations starting only 2 weeks out from your desired camp date. Which means you can make reservations today for as far ahead as Thursday, June 25th. You can extend into dates past those two weeks if your reservations start during those two weeks. 

If you are interested in attending this campout, you can make reservations for that weekend starting TOMORROW, FRIDAY JUNE 12th. Looking at the reservation calendar, there seem to be quite a few campsites which will be available that weekend and after (see map below). 

FYI -- our camp hosts Roy & Rosemary are in site #87; John & Nancy are in site #122 (red arrows). 

Reservations can be made at 

For those who are interested in what campgrounds are open where, here is a good source of info:  

The following campout for the Tumbleweeds will be July 24-26
Huckleberry Campground, Lake Cascade, ID

Looking forward to seeing you soon,
Rita 😎

Tumbleweeds: Updated Camping Schedule

Well, I don't know about you but that was a great campout we had this past weekend -- and boy, did I need that! My batteries were definitely recharged. 

Janet and Tino did a great job, covering all the bases: sun, rain, clouds, hail, hot, cold, good food, great company -- and a warm campfire. Sorry Mark & Emma that you missed it. It was a lot of fun! 

Rosemary reminded me I hadn't updated the campout schedule to include Farewell Bend which is our next gathering. 

The campout is June 26-28 but you can't currently make reservations through They should be open the first of June. Rosemary & Roy, John & Nancy are the wagonmasters so you'll be hearing more from them. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Thanks, Rita 😊
