Long way to go to looking real pretty. Very rustic and natural at the moment with weeds galore and over grown this and that. We have some heavy work ahead and I am so far behind what I said I was going to get done this spring cause of being sick.
Even now I am lucky if I can handle 5 minutes on 5 minutes off
Like I have to drag a chair around with me and puff for air- will take a bit of work to get my stamina back up. Time is crucial when you live in a place with short seasons...(except for one - huff winter) And I just created twice the work to clearing the new driveway....time for a plow I think or a tractor with a blower on it.
Lou - it is kind of a special place up here. Only draw back is we are by a road that has large trucks that run to the mine - they are on a schedule so it is only busy 2 times a day - sort of living close to railroad tracks - you get used to the truck noise - but the rest of the time it is deathly quiet. Yes I am taking it very careful and trying not to over do myself - that is a hard task mind you cause I am raring to go in mind but body says hold up girl!!
I was dead serious in wanting to holding a Women's rally here one day!!
For a mini rally at my place I could take:
5 spots up to 30' Trailers
2 spots up to 25' Trailers
2 spots up to 20' Trailers
2 spots up to 34' Trailers (rally only spots) As they would be parked one in front of the other.
I would squeeze the Ladybug somewhere else and the Overlander would pop in the new garage. The boat of course would be in the water and there is another spot we keep the boat trailer.
Electrical would be fun. 1 30 and 2 20's off the house. 1 20 and 2 15's off the Bunkie. A new wire run with 1 30 and 3 20's for the corner pads and then a 20 or 30 at the garage.
Water would be filled - not enough pressure to daisy chain that many. Possible to rent a water tank. But your own fresh water tanks would be easier. And cheaper
Dump would be by blue buggy (and I would empty our septic tank before the rally.) Most spots we could set up a sand barrel/or ground pan for the grey water disposal.
Of course I would open up the house for the shower and bathroom. And if there is someone who just can not get their trailer ready or have not found that perfect trailer but wants to join in I have the bunkie that can sleep possibly 3 - depending on how I set it up. Still room for tents tee hee but who would do that
Camp Fires no problem (just don't burn my house down
Some spots would be tight to let out the awnings but then we have lots of shade with the trees.
I can set the house up in a way like a lodge so the main floor is all table for group eating - or we could also get a large garden tent - depending on the time of year bugs are a consideration. June July August and Fall are best - Early spring you are looking at snow and late spring bad for bugs!!
We would have access to the lake via our other property an 8 minute walk for those who want to bring canoes,kayaks and the like.
Lots of small town things to do - no huge attractions really - there are caves here too but never been so have no idea what they are like. Peterborough is the closest City and we have several towns and villages all within 15 minutes. (PS all paved roads too - that was a joke tee hee- just in case some may think I live way way way out there
Timing - at this point just tossing ideas. Not sure I can have all this ready for next season - so 2010 or 2011 would be a more realistic time frame. By then most of you would have your passports......RIGHT
I was thinking I could even arrange that somehow people could meet and run a Caravan on the Canadian side I would come across and get cha'all.... - just in case some of your GPS go ary
would not want anyone getting lost.
It would be kind of fun to have a little Caravan too.
Anyway all food for thought
