The interstate system of highways is fine for getting where you need to be in a hurry, but it's the road less traveled that is more enjoyable. Take in the scenery before life passes you by in a blur.

as a reminder....if you are bringing a pet be sure you get a spot that allows pets. i have a couple sites in the no pet section. in turn, if you are not bringing a pet id ask if you can take one of those sites.

 

we are at 7 rigs signed up at this time.

Tried to reserve a site today, but just missed their office hours. Will try again tomorrow and make sure we get a pet site. Any idea on how big the sites around around you, Rich? We probably will bring the cargo trailer and want to make sure we have space for it. Do we need to bring firewood?

sally...the sites next to me are bigger. be sure to let them know the size you need too. firewood is always great if you can. i called the resort today and asked if everything was going well and if they had any questions. they said all is good and that a couple people have called lately.

if you can sally, could you please sign up for the rally too. it helps me keep track of the count of people coming.

Morning Rich:

 

Got us all signed up for site 105.  I told them the dates and when she gave me a total it seemed really low to me.  So I stopped the process and had them back up to find she had us checking out on Sat and not Sun.  2 nights not 3.  Got that resolved.

 

We'll bring plenty of Firewood, not to worry.  Does each site have a fire pit or do they have a group fire pit?    Fire sounds pretty good right now with a low this morning of -10 degs here.

thanks for the heads up. heck I just talked to them earlier today to make sure all was well. im talking to them right now and they are correcting their calendar. so they are fixing things right now. strange...I even pointed it out when bedlam said something earlier. I think a note was missed at their office maybe.
