Don't be dismayed at this sign, just go around it and make your turn. There's a shoprite grocery store on the corner, if you need to stock up on anything. If you take Mt Hope north, you go to the Waterloo Rec area, Portage Lake and Sugarloaf Lake units. There are campgrounds at both places, but I'll bet they're full this weekend, and anyway, the action is at Apple Creek. Anyway, be aware of this sign, it won't cause any problems, the construction is about a quarter mile up the road. We'll keep the light on for ya.
Thanks for the directions Harold! I get to check off one item from my list!

Let me reiterate....We will be waiting, with warm yummy comfort food for you to show up Friday. We'll say Hi, we'll feed you. We might, but no promise, might have a beverage for you, too.

Don't worry, unless you roll in after midnite, and then I can't promise we'll still be standining, but you can have leftovers!

Why dont you just have everybody take care of thenselves as far as plates etc??? REMEMBER,,No outside campfire wood can be brought into the campground, but if we all chip in and buy some we should have enough!!!

I was thinking of doing some sausages rather than hotdogs since I'm partial to sausages. Any others?
Lou, by the sounds of what everyone else has said there will be lots of dogs to wrap in buns. Who's going to eat them all?
Lou P. What is your favourite beer? You know the Canadian stuff! The real deal!!!
Maybe I can get some on the way down.
For the caravanning we will probably get to Gratiot Ave early. Eight or nine. Can be there earlier if you want. Let me know.

check in sheet

Lou P. was going to do a check in sheet with the names of those coming in each unit.....maybe?? Maybe everyone can just chime in with how many are in coming in their party?? I will multiply that to about 2 buns for each member and add a few. Unless John or Lou P. know how many already.

Lou
Here's how I have been counting: We now have 23 confirmed reservations, with 66Overlanders coming on Saturday morning, maybe. I know of at least two other sets of people that have expressed interest in stopping by to say hi. That's 25 parties, and I'm guestimating two persons per, with at least 10% extra, so say 55 people for dinner. If everyone wants a dog, then that's 55. There's going to be plenty of food, so will anyone want more than one? I think aiming for about 60 dogs for Saturday, with maybe 30 or 40 for night one (Friday), should cover it.

I could be way crazy here and off the mark, so if anyone has a better guess, lemme know.

more buns

Larry and I will be there for the shindig on Thurs. and Fri. I thought that the dogs were for Fri. night. I didn't realize you were doing dogs again for Sat.
I just got done cooking for band camp...feeding 60 hungry teenagers. I bought about 15 pkg. of buns! 120 dogs! So do you think 15 pkg. is enough? Chime in y'all!

Hey John,
I thought all this talk about hotdogs and snacks was for the Friday evening mixer.

Turn that "maybe" back into a "yes". I've talked with Lorrie and I think we are good to go ('er arrive) Saturday morning, if there is still a spot for us. Even though it's only for a day, I went back and re-registered on the forum link.

I tried to call the camp ground today, but all I got was a recording. I wasn't in a situation where they could call me back, so I didn't leave a message. Do I need to call them, or are one of you (AYRSTREAM2, HDS?) managing the registrations? Are we #24, or now one of the overflow reservations? If the latter, where exactly are the 4 overflow spots that are close by? It is not clear from their site map:


As for a Saturday Dish-to-Pass, we haven't discussed it yet, but I may suggest to Lorrie that we bring the broccolli salad we brought to LPPI 1 last year (it seemed to go over pretty well). Now to find some Canadian beer . . .

Whoops! Actually, the hot dog incident has sort of grown up around us here. OK, let's say that the hot dogs are for Friday, with tater tots. Everyone good with that?

Who can help out here?
I have the garbage bags! When you do restorations like I do them you need a lot of garbage bags!
