Beerbower Park.

Stephen, it's on your left when you get to the main intersection of town (Simpson Ave and 3rd St) and across the street from the Police Department/City Hall. There's restrooms next to the covered area and there should be plenty of parking.

David, we're going to be meeting at 902 Union Ave E (across from the Shell station on Plum St and Union Ave and behind the Chevron station) and then meeting up at the park with those coming from the Peninsula. We haven't set the departure time yet.

Thanks Ron. Beerbower Park in McCleary it will be, and just for a rendezvous point then head to Montesano for coffee.

9:00 in McCleary works for me.

For those coming from the Olympia area, meet in the parking lot at 902 Union Ave S where we will depart for McCleary at 8:30.

I tried calling you this afternoon and I left a message.

0745 hrs Whiskey Gulch works in case someone else is joining us. If nobody else is going us I would say meet here (our home) but since this has alrerady been Posted as a meet place then Whisky Gulch it is.

Sorry Stephen I listened to your message and meant to call back unfortunately work and family tied me up... I WILL see you at Whiskey Gulch. It may just be me and one of our dogs as Matt just found out he has a 90% chance of working all weekend.

The (current) plan is to tour the Air Museum on Saturday and then the Tillamook Cheese factory and Blue Heron Cheese on Sunday before heading back towards home.

OK, they are open Sunday's too!

The Tillamook Cheese Factory is sort of a big commercial hohum. I have yet to see the Blue Heron Cheese Factory but I suspect it is much smaller and more artisan in nature and therefore more interesting. Am I mistaken???
