    Crabs sound wonderful...but even more wonderful is the fact that 16 families/campsites are getting together for a rally in the middle of November!!!

    TOTALLY AWESOME!!!

I don't think I'll bring the pasties because they need to be baked in an oven. Does anyone like middle-eastern food? The metro Detroit area has the largest concentration of middle-easterners out side of the middle-east. Thus we have lots of good middle-eastern foods, like hummus, tabbouleh, baba ghanoush, Fattoush, Falafel, etc.<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica" size=2 id=quote>

    OK. I'm hungry.....

    FYI - My DW has shellfish allergies so, everyone, please IDENTIFY the fish and seafood. I sure would appreciate it. That way, my wife stays away from it, AND I know where to stop first.... <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_chef.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Chef">

    Julie, I'll bring my small folding oven if you bring the pasties.

    One of my favorite movies is "Escanaba in da Moonlight", and I've wanted to try a proper pastie since I first saw it.

    Several additional sites have been booked outside the PUP. I've updated the map at the beginning of the forum. We have 16 families and counting. BOOK NOW! They are going fast.

    Hi Joe - If it's all right, we will bring the official "PopUpPortal.com" Caledonia State Park Rally 2008 decorated cake. Ann used to decorate cakes professionally and has offered to make the camp cake.

    It's hard to believe that there are 16 families attending... we think that's great and can't wait to join the festivities.

    Official PopUpPortal - Caledonia State Park Rally 2008 Decorated Cake sounds great. One of us solo guy campers would have brought cupcakes from the grocery store. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_blush.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Blush"> We look forward to it. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Approve">

    Does anybody know this campground that could answer some questions for me so far as picking a site if I would be able to come?

    Lets plan to have a 'meet and greet' Friday evening at the fire with a few snacks and soup, then dinner on Saturday night. It seemed to work well with everyones arrival time and set up.

    I am planning to deep fry a big turkey or two Saturday. (It's Thanksgiving) I don't know how, but someone here has to know what to do without burning down the camper? <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_chef.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Chef"> Anyone ever make sweet potatos while camping?

    Bill: Glad you and Bev can make it. Looks like Marc might be joining us also. Crazy D and Joe, I just order memory foam and you can have the other bunk? <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_sleepy.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Sleepy">

    I've never camped at this SP,<img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_ranger.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Ranger"> but here is what I can tell you.

    Thanks Joe, what I am wondering though is those sites on the inside loop wide open in a field like setting? On one hand if things go as last time and everybody just hangs at the gathering area it would be nice to be on the loop, but at the same time I hate being out in the open. I am thinking that with the sites being pull through they would be wide open? Not to mention being a little scared or hearing "Ironman" playing all night next door to Rusty! LOL

    Bill, None of the sites(other than the gathering area) are "in the open". The sites are mostly wooded though it will be fall so the leaves will be mostly gone. The upper end of the loop, away from the entrance, the sites are a little more spread out. They are closer together at the bottom. With a PUP, I'd think just about any site would suit you.

    Here's some pictures taken on a recon - Caledonia - January 2007

    Unfortunately, most of these are of the other loop that we aren't camping in.
