There is no Honor guard, no Teen Queen, no parking Gestapo, no Badge Police and no Front Row Parking.

The only places of Honor at a Canopener are the winner of the corn hole tournament and the vehicle chosen to drive the trash to the dumpster. So those planning to place their rigs in contention are advised to wash and polish them because the selection process has high standards.

Ah Tim,
You know the weatherman has been toying with us the last few years with the balmy weather. We are due for a round of 19 degree nights with a pleasant breeze of 25 to 30 MPH. Top it off with the water and electric shut off for a while and you'll have your fun back in with the roughing it routine.
Last time about 50% of the rigs bailed or did not show up. Those that stayed were real Canopenians.

Yup. I forgot that roughing it means using a hair dryer to restore water to your trailer. Got to remember to keep the hair dryer above the downspout this time.

I'm still looking for more participants in the open-water swim event. It's a little lonely out in all that open ocean.

Tim,
I don't mind the swim. The water is not that cold. The bike ride back gets a little chilly in my speedo. I'm really not much company either.
