    Wow... its been 4 months since last sleeping under the stars. Started packing today. Most things packed except the fridge food. Still need to flush out the water systems and adjust the hitch.

    See you all Thursday or Friday. Anyone else coming in on Thursday.

    Started packing/restocking the camper yesterday. All systems check out but the furnace. :( Hopefully it's a faulty regulator, I have a new one coming tomorrow.

    We'll be there early Friday. I tried for Thursday but Steph said no since it'll be very late.

    See everyone on Friday!!

    We'll be there Thursday morning sometime, much to my bosses dismay. They've got the training scheduled for Thursday, and were originally planning on having me sit in on it, guess that ain't happening!

    We've got the camper about 90% packed up, just toiletries and some clothes for me, plus food of course. She's all hitched up and ready to go, just sucks walking out there to go to work and see her ready to go and know I have 2 more days.

    Anticipating camping always sucks; but I think that is part of the excitement and calm when you finish setting up in the CS. We should be there early afternoon. But I think we are going to setup and make a trip up to New Wilmington up by I-80 and see the DW's 90 something year old 2nd cousin. Phager76, if we dont catch up with you when we arrive. We see you that evening. Have a safe trip.

    Pat, apparently my daughter really wants me to make cheesy potatoes so that's what we're bringing. She's also making cookies, it's a new recipe so hopefully it turns out.

    It appears as though we will be getting in late Friday, as per usual. Andy has inventory at work on Friday and is not allowed to leave early. We are so ready to get away and relax, it has been a trying few weeks.
    Pat... what’s on the menu so far. I’m not sure what to bring.
    Most of the packing is done, except for clothes that are in the process of being washed and food. Andy wants me to find some sort of drink...

    Salandrew, we will leave a light on. lol :)

    Finished testing all systems on the camper. Started up the fridge for the pre cool. We are ready to go except packing the fridge.

    It is raining today. Found I have a leak at one window. Most Likely the caulk has failed at the roof edge or the roof vent. Will redo caulk later this month when we have dry weather. There is always something to do on a camper :(

    Phager76: DW said it will be the Hot Dogs & Baked Beans.

    Would you really have it any other way? The only way were getting there early on Friday is because Steph and I took a vacation day and we're taking the kids out of school. I'm sure we can make something educational about the trip, like new words said during set up. :)

    dont forget to fill your tanks at the water spiqot on the right as you come in the F loop, no water on site. also noted the water was NOT on at the dump station when i left on sunday. had to drain my tanks and drip dry on the way home.

    I've updated the spreadsheet with who's making what, as of this post. I still don't have Rich's contribution or Hookingwings. It looks like Hookingwings hasn't been online since Febuary, so I'm not even 100% certain they're still coming... I'll shoot them a PM. Like I said, I'm not worried if the contributions make it in the spreadsheet, as long as they make it to the table (And ultimately our bellies!), and since most of us have done rallies together in the past, we all know the routine! As usual, this is going to be a great time! So no stress about last minute changes to what's being brought!

    Quick Question for you Dusty, I know that you said you'd be coming at the beginning of the thread, but I didn't see a confirmation from you on site, and I didn't put you in the spreadsheet. So are you going to be joining us this weekend?

    I got one more day of work, and then we're off to the races. It's going to be a real pain to be productive tomorrow, but I got to get some more help files written and do some pretty intense testing on the AR system before I check out for the weekend, so somehow I'll have to stay focused!
