Pagey,

We're on 22, just a short walk behind Rally Central in some trees. If you don't get a better site offer you're welcome to pitch on our site.

Pagey,

I just called the SP office, 1 tent added to site, no problem. Might need to get a vehicle pass at the office.

Okay, folks.

Gary has a pdf. document I put together from various resources, on DO basics, for newbies to the art and anyone who wants to read it. He's going to post it, as I haven't the ability.

Why did I do this? Because I are rather compulsively organized.

Give me a task, and I organize myself and information. What can I say. It's hard-wired at this point.

So, take what is helpful and ignore anything else.

I am going to post the bread recipe/variations a week or so before the rally, for those who want it. That will later be posted in pdf. form, as well.

Stay warm,


Maggie

Folks,

I have Maggie's PDF and will send tomorrow soon as I get to a PC not this eye phone thingy.

Bought another DO cook/history book yesterday and sitting at my campfire right now just finished it.

Linda and I put together a list of what we remember making in DO's over the years:

Beef stew
Chili, lots of it
Beef roast, taters, carrots, gravy a real one pot meal
Pork loin, taters etc
Frogmore stew, quiet Henry, I'M typing this!
Fried chicken
Red wine chicken thighs, better than it looked
Buffalo wings
Ham and bean soup
Short ribs
Biscuits
Cinnamon rolls
Pies
Cobblers
Funnel cakes
Popcorn

That beef roast is a champ and simpler than I can describe.

Pretty sure we'll have more to follow and help from DO Wrangler mbmbstreamer too so stay tuned and I'm gonna add a suggested tool kit, SUGGESTED NOT MANDATORY but after you dump your lid of coals into the Maggie bread, you'll get a lid lifter, ask me how I know that one!

Gary

[QUOTE=bradnsheree;1413144]I just went to see if any spots were still available and online reservations is showing every spot taken. Will put this on calendar for next year. If anyone needs to cancel please let us know. Thanks![/QUOTE


Keep checking the park website, several times a day if you can. Some cancellations do occur. Sometimes last minute.

If it doesn't work out this time, we will be gathering again in the fall, keep an eye out for the thread.

Every site is allowed 1 rv and 1 tent, so no problem putting up a tent on any site, just need the ok from whomever is parked there. There is lots of room around most all sites.

You're welcome to pitch a tent on site 3 as well, but you have to promise to share some vegan recipes. I try to eat vegan when I can to control my blood pressure and cholesterol without meds. Ed

Thank you, Gary and Linda!

Beetlebob and I are looking forward to this.

We picked the brains of Mr. Maxwell, the Airstream engineer who attended the Tampa RV Supershow last month. We will probably end up buying a new Classic 31 and squeaking in a couple of changes while it is being built. Hope to have it next year. Our truck build date is March 11 and we hope of have it sometime in April. One step (and payment) at a time

Page and Bob

Ed:

I am a Delta Queen steamboat fan. Took several trips on her before Congress decided to mothball her.

Gary has graciously arranged for us to pitch a tent on his site, but I will be happy to share recipes with you. I will have my Kindle with me and have all of my cookbooks loaded onto it. We have both noticed great improvements in our health since cutting out meat and dairy. Weight and blood pressure have dropped and reflux is completely gone! Yay, from a person who used to eat Prevacid.

Delta Queen

The Delta Queen looks like a great trip to the past. I hope she gets to return to the water as soon as possible. I love living history like this. I'm a huge steam locomotive fan also. john
