    I should be ok getting one of the non-reserved. My goal is to leave really early in the morning. I'm arriving on Thursday before the city rush on Friday evening. Because Canada Day is a Monday, companies won't likely be giving the Friday off. However, if I'm not then I'll be over your way when I'm not answering a million work calls LOL

    Lol! I’m the Operations Coordinator for a Toronto based transportation company called ParkBus. We take passengers to various national, local, and provincial parks. I’m the on call staff on weekends.

    You may absolutely answer the phone and their sometimes silly questions

    Thats what I thought too when I was booking the site, however.......
    If you go to google maps, fly over to Arrowhead Park, change it to satellite view, and zoom out a little bit, you will see that there are no sites anywhere near the beach. The Ont Parks drawing is definitely not to scale. Tina will have to drive by the looks of it, looks way too far to walk, sigh....

    It's actually not too bad. Friends of ours were on that road a few years back and I think it's only about a 5 min walk from the site to the beach. And the trail was well used and in good condition. Some state that there is poison ivy around, but we've never had any trouble with it.
    For the KoTS Rally last year, we had a breakfast potluck....it was quite good. Not everyone has to participate....feel free to just bring your breakfast. Not sure anyone would be interested in doing this with us....if not, all good. Just wanted to throw it out there and see if there was an interest. [CK]

    Member Site Dates People
    Wrench 411 6
    Strawhouse 410 26-01 1
    ccptbo 465 27-02 4
    algonquingirl 336 1

    Visiting for the day
    TandT
    Snow
    scrt ???

    Sparky is attending, just don't have the other window open to get his site number and dates..

    You who are attending can discuss the when and where the nightly campfires will be and I'll add them to the list. Also you can decide on the whom will host the Potluck and on which day. This goes for the Breakfast as well is you decide to have one.

    Just remember, if your not going to be there the day your resi starts you have to call and notify the park you'll be there the following day... Hate to see someone loose their site cause they forgot to call..

    Thanks, but not to worry, I have to cancel a few nights at the beginning of my resi. I might not be going in until Friday now. I've just been told of a high school function that Rach has to go to on the Thurs night, so that probably has us going in even later. Tina and I were originally going to go in around the Tues, but now its getting later and later.

    Let me know when you cancel. . It may give me an opportunity only need a site to go green for a bit and I'll try and grab something. ...

    Why not tell your boss that you got a customer call about the drive to Arrowhead, so you need to make the drive yourself so you can give him ths right answer?

    You're not leaving work early, you're giving work your 200%.

    I've flown all the way out there for the Peterborough Folk Festival, so you never know...

    I'm actually looking at a trip out there for summer 2020, so I may make it to that one. Have friends to visit on Lake Skugog (all these years and I still love saying that - don't ask me why) and Brantford. Have to see about getting the bird his passport first - afraid Trump will declare him an illegal alien as he's a Mexican Red-Headed Amazon.
