We have a reservation for the first weekend of November at Turkey Run State Park in Indiana incase anyone is looking for somewhere to go one more weekend.
Why don't we ALL try to do a better job of telling each other where we're going camping throughout the year..... we could have mini-rallies of just two.

Ok, Tedd,

I'm trying to imagine what you mean by "dragged out".. and I don't think you meant Lori chasing your kids all rally..

Do NOT tell me that your trailer sank in the mud !

We too had a great time. Thanks to everybody for the good food and conversation.

We got home about 3:30 with no major drama. Had the last bit of brisket for lunch on the way home. We are still working to get the carpet under the bed dried out from the water pump changes.

Tedd,

Sorry that we didn't stay longer to offer moral support. Wet grass is really slippery, isn't it.

Jim & Marianne

I thought I felt "Eddie's" AWD kick in for a second when I pulled up the incline. When I got out, stopped on the road, and checked for for the junk I usually forget, I found I had ripped up a patch of grass about 6 feet long.
I'll have to remember to bring a box of grass seed next spring.

Tom.

I had problems backing out the car to go dump the blue boy. So when I got back from that I drove down to the front of the trailer and then drove out a different way to see of I would have problems pulling out. I didn't, so I hooked up to the trailer and proceeded to slide sideways. The host was there and said to stay put.

The man in charge of the forest preserve district lived near by. He showed up with a tow strap and chain. He had to go back for more chain.

So with three tow chains and a tow strap and a little laying around in the mud. He pulled me and the rig out of the low area like we were nothing!

I believe Dana got a few pictures. I hope she got my good side.

Tedd, what a story. What did your kids have to say?

I bet they had NO IDEA camping would be THAT exciting.
