Clam Shack Build Oct 2019

For the past few years Operation Shore Patrol has been held at the Tidelands Campground in Copalis Beach WA. Dave, the owner of the campground has been really good to us and accommodating our group to the point of breaking some of the campground rules that are normally in force. So it was when Dave asked if there was any way he could get some help with building a new clam shack for guests there were several people from the Rainer Ridge Rams and the Timber Tamers that said they would be happy too. A date was set for Oct 12th when everyone would converge on the campground.

Keep in mind – it’s the trip, it’s the beach, it’s the friends, it’s the shared meal, it’s helping make the beach a cleaner place, it’s the jokes, it’s the fun, it’s the leg-pulling, the sound of engines, the heritage of wheelers being wheelers together – Operation Shore Patrol is overall – THE EXPERIENCE!

She and her brother Kona spent a weekend with their mistress and me at Operation Shore Patrol. Being forced to spend time on the hard ground or on a lead, and not lounging on the couch as might have been the case at home all weekend – I’m sure they’d think of reporting us to the ASPCA – if only they had the opposable thumbs to manage it. I think mainly they are glad just to be home again. We tell them, “Remember – you always beg to come along. Well this time – we brought you!” Continue reading “Operation Shore Patrol Sep 2017”

Operation Shore Patrol – The Triumphant Return….

There are Shore Patrols that stand out in memory.  Some for negative reasons (like “That was the crappiest, rainiest, coldest” or “I can’t believe how poorly my rig ran”) or like this one – for the best of reasons.  Because this was a good group of Tamers at the right time and place on one of the nicest coastal days of recent memory.
