    Close to Chicago in Northwest Indiana... Just far enough from the city to take a weekend breather and enjoy the beautiful beach on Lake Michigan? A BBQ and chance to meet other suburban Pop Up Portal peeps???
    Who'd be interested in piecing together a Meet and Greet for the Dunes in the future, give me a shout out! I'd be interested in knowing-
    Thanx!

    Yes, work being as it is... reservations etc. This would definitely be on next year's calendar so that everyone would have a chance to have a weekend planned :)

    I live in South Bend and would be interested. In fact I camped at Indiana Dunes last week for a couple of nights and had a good, restful time.

    My family has been up and down the Dunes for years because of it's location. Close to Illinois, Indiana, Michigan... It's easy to find!
    We've used the beach for family reunions, chilli "cook-offs" aka "the Blazing Saddles reunion" One year we just brought a platter of chicken and fixings from local Strack and VanTils and had a giant picnic. A lot of possibilities and always a great time!

    A few postcards from the area and a snapshot of the campground I came across.
    Since we visit this park on day trips, I'll post some better photos along the way so more of the members can grill over the idea :)

    We can't squeeze it in this summer, but we would definitely be interested for 2015. How quickly does the campground fill up?

    It looks like there's enough interest and that is a good question MamaBean!
    I'm glad you chimed in. I'll try to swing by the park over the next week and ask a few questions-

    The CG fills quick, proximity to Chicago doesn't help.

    Brent, You definitely have enough interest to roll with this for next year. Just a suggestion, maybe throw a poll out as to what dates people would be looking at. Keep it broad at first, early summer, mid summer, or late. And a note to all, high summer in the Chicago area can be evil, temps near 100 and 90% humidity (July & August).

    I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked out the window this morning! Lol
    We'll be getting out there this summer as well, but the idea of having an organized Meet and Greet for all the members was irresistible and they need time to react and plan. I've heard of members on Pop up Portal that will drive across the country when they're interested in a particular destination. I'm working on a weekend out at the Dunes with my brother soon. I'll PM you when I have more on that :)
