Youngone, Welcome to the madness...

I appreciate you stopping in, and hopefully with a little help, we will be going fast in two weeks...

Please feel free to lounge around, have some popcorn and coke, and posts up whenever you wish....I'll take good ideas from anywhere I can get them...

I have the same one I had in March... Can't decide if it's good luck or bad... might have to go without it, and pick something up if/when we are successful...

Sorry we haven't kept in touch but it has been a hectic summer getting everything ready to send Nathan off to school. Mission accomplished on that front last week so now we have some time.

Marsha and I will be coming down early Friday morning. We will be bringing the camper and hopefully my 4 wheeler if i get it out of the shop in time (potential tow vehicle). We have the camper pretty well equipped so if you forget something we probably have it. I also have a pop up cover that you can use if needed.

We also have some extra space for sleeping if anyone needs a spot. We can probably sleep 4-5 additional folks.

We plan on being there till Sunday.

Let me know if you need help with anything and we will do what we can.
