The owners are going to call me back in a few hours to let me know if they will allow us to bring a patio fire pit out with us to the group area. I said I would keep a hose and fire extinguisher on hand at ALL times.

If this is a nogo we have another option. The lady I spoke to offered to give us sites 82 and 83 at the south grounds that are 40 and 36 feet long respectively. She would do both for the $30 cost. Each is a full hookup, but we don't have to put an RV on it. This would give us a huge area to gather in, two fire pits, and full hookups to watch the movies at.

Anybody have thoughts on this?

Steve
Problem is those sites aren't as close as you think to the north park. If you go by the roads to get there, it's a fairly good hike with some hills to navigate. Not condusive at all for carrying chairs coolers etc to the sites. The good side is they are close to the bathrooms but I'm assuming she will not let you park cars in the sites. My suggestion would be to pass on the site offer.

Personally I can't see why the gas fire pit won't be allowed. The issue at the north campground is the site sizes and smoke. Make sure she understands what you might bring is actually smoke free and running off propane.

I agree with Jack...seems a little to far to haul all of our stuff and more than likely not enough parking to drive...I too would pass on the South sites...

I haven't actually bought the propane burner...a little rich for my blood seeing that I have a perfectly good fire pit at home that would work at the pavillion.

If the fire is in a cluster of rally goers (We have most of the spots) we can maybe tell the office that we don't care about the smoke.

The spots 82 and 83 would have been a carpool thing, but it was something that I wanted everyone to have a look at.

If we had the entire campground I don't believe the fire issue would be there, but there is a chance that those other sites not affiliated with us have a camper who chose to be be there because the campground is smoke free. I personally wouldn't go after the we don't care about the smoke issue with the owners because they will consider those outside our group too. I think the best you can hope for is the chance that someone has a propane fire unit and that they will allow that due to no smoke and no need for clean up.

I hope that smoke really isn't the issue. I planned on smoking that pork shoulder (Providing that I get a replacement hot plate) at my camping spot.

A lot of difference between a BBQ and a campfire....unless your heat source was going to be a campfire!!

As long as you share the Pork shoulder, I don't think anyone will gripe about the smoke...just save some for me!!

Gene,

Aren't you and Bill leaving early in the morning on Friday? You should get here in plenty of time.

Got a mailing from the campground today. Many of us will be arriving on the 11th. Looks like more fun to be had for the rally.

Still awaiting management to call me back...stay tuned.

Steve

Important....

I ordered a hot plate, but it isn't slated to be here till next Wednesday. Too bad as I was really wanting to make smoked pork. Then I am waltzing around sears at the mall, and low and behold a new hotplate.....and way cheaper than the one I ordered.

Guess I have a backup once the other one gets here.

HUAZZAH!!!

Too bad more kids aren't coming. Artstream could do a wonderoud finger painting exhibit.

With that said...I asked about dogs, but who is bringing kids?

Steve

Bill..what are you using to smoke the brisket? I have apple and hickory, but don't want to use the same as you.
