Glad to have you. No reservations for the group; and the park does not have reservations, first come only. A couple of usually arrives on Thurs AM and tries to keep sites available.
For meals we are on our own but eat together. Sat nite is the potluck with your own meat. We try to keep a fire going except for late at night with a bottom less coffee pot

The "Policy" is not firewood from outside of the campground. This is due to bug infestations causing all kinds of problems. If you keep it on the low (out of sight) it should not be a problem. The camp host works with us. Everyone chips in on buying firewood for the weekend.
Looking forward to seeing you there! I know a few of us are really needing the decompression time just sitting around a campfire!!!!

In our quest to “Keep It Simple” this go-around I came to the conclusion that tending to meat on an open fire might require some unnecessary effort.
What with having to put down your drink, get up out of the chair, inspect the fire, flipping over the meat, doneness, ect. Why, that just doesn’t seem appropriate for our non-theme, theme.

Flipping….. Why bother turning over your own main dish???

I rummaged around in the shed and found an old BBQ rotisserie. Went down stairs to the shop and found some square tube in my scrap box.
A little work tonight has produced a “Set It and Forget It” appliance to clamp to the side of the fire ring.

Now. What to Roast??

See you all soon,

Tom.

BTW we are riding bicyles on friday, i have been in training to keep up with mike and dana!

it's spring and I am starting to get that itch; but it is not the same one I had as a teen-ager. This one is to go camping. What was that itch????
Was out and did a walk-around of the AS and thinking that this is March and the Meat and Fire outing is only 2 months away. Getting anxious; it's been along time since I put the AS away for the winter.
So far I think there are 9 units said they are coming; but the more the merrier.
See you there, mike

Hey Mike what's that itch? Looking forward to spring and taking the camper out. Winter has not been bad but looking forward to opening up the Airstream and our get together.
Tom has been working on the inside putting in the last piece of the counter top and wall and repairing the refrigerator. Hopefully he will get to the new toilet.
See everyone soon, Tom and Sue

R U talking Chicago Dogs????
Have a good trip; I'm working on the hitch. I have been reading too much.
Getting the bike ready---be ready.
We should go fishing; the NEW Illinois record Walleye was caught in the Pecatonica River, and the rumor is that someone has broken that also from the Pecatonica river. 15 plus pounds. Both were caught near Rockford.
