    I need to find some beer.

    I'm bringing chili for the pot luck, I don't care if it's in the contest or not.

    Still getting the camper ready. Had to replace my CO/LP detector. Needs a good wash and wax too. Only a few days left. Oh yeah and I need to get beer too. [:D]

    Not sure what we're bringing for the pot luck. I say "we" because my wife will probably cook it and I will transport it. You don't want me cooking anything. If it were me, there would be 10 Big Macs on the table.

    We will bring some chili, and probably some veggies and dip for the pot luck.

    95% sure we are bringing some chili for the contest. Still working on the dish for the pot luck. For the craft beer sampling I'm bringing Lost Rhino's Face Plant IPA.

    On a separate topic would it be out of place to advertise selling a few pop-up related items that could be checked out at the rally for those interested. I'm not a dealer or anything I just have a few things in great shape that I don't have use for. It's my first rally so feel free to school me on etiquette.

    I'm still on the lookout for beer.
    But, bring your wares. I'll be happy to peruse.
    My wife is probably going to bring a vegetarian chili and corn bread for the pot luck.

    Loading up my pup today, since we're expecting rain tomorrow and Tues morning. Will load kayak and hook up pup tomorrow night, so I'm ready to leave early on Tues.

    Shopping local Muskoka craft beers tomorrow. I'm hoping to bring a gold medal ipa and wheat beer, as well as a limited edition seasonal brew--and anything else that might be 'interesting'.

    As some of you know, I'm not a beer drinker, so I've never been to a beer tasting. How many cans of each should I bring?

    I'm heading north on Tuesday for an overnight stop with friend's and then onward for a Wednesday arrival at the rally. I have a local entry for the beer tasting and am looking forward to it.

    Tom, I wouldn't worry about it. Rinn Duin is not exactly a household word. Except, maybe, my household.

    Monday AM: Open the pup; clean & organize; food shopping; laundry; freeze food; dry ice?; empty water tank (freezing temps in my future); pack truck & pup; repack the truck; close the pup; hook up trailer & check lights & tires; wander the house looking for stuff I forgot to pack; sleep.

    Sounds like a plan to me.

    We were at Winhall this weekend, the leaves are just starting to turn so next weekend should be some beautiful foliage next weekend.
    I will be.posting up potlucks and chili contestants later so let me know what your bringing if you haven't yet.

    Adirondack pup, go ahead and list what you have, that way you only pack what people are interested in.

    Don't know yet about the pot luck but I did pick up some "Whoopie Pie Stout" and a lighter "Old Orange Eyes" from Some Brewery in York, ME yesterday.

    OK, just so I'm the same planet.
    Beer thing on Friday, pot luck on Saturday?
    Chris, will you have a list of attendees and their site number by Thursday?
