    Actually, I take it back. We can't go. It's the weekend of Yom Kippur and Jeff and Jake have to go to services on Saturday. [:(] [:(] [:(]

    Sorry you can't make it but understandable. School is closed that day so I get an extra day of camping!

    Sounds like you need to come by yourself or bunk with someone from Canada LOL, or use a lean to [LOL]

    I should just bring a tent and set it up under your awning. You seem to have dibs on the best spot in Hybrid Hollow....

    Hm-m-m...
    ...and I wonder who that might be?
    Great idea, Dave! I'd gladly welcome Steph into my humble pup! [:D]
    Just imagine if Sharon could make it too! It would be a rollicking time! Of course, we'd have to camp next to you and Deb!

    That would be a pretty vibrant group Pat, I'm hoping the CG would enforce quiet time with that group of women next to my site. You could bunk with us also, well technically Gunner since you would be in his bunk [}:)]

    Interesting proposition and I appreciate your concerns, Dave. I, too, feel a responsibility to be respectful vis-a-vis the camping experience of my fellow campers. :)

    In light of our common perspective, I suggest the following counter proposal:
    You can use my pup, and we will join Deb in your rig. This would help to minimize the transmission of noise to the neighbouring campers, and we would have more space to entertain our other guests from camp. Of course, Gunner can join you at bedtime, so you won't be lonely! [}:)] [:D] [}:)]

    Your thoughts....


    ....well, at least the ones you can share on this forum...

    Steph, sorry to hear that you won't be able to make it. What are Kevin and I going to do with our Friday night now? I guess we will have to go to the beer tasting this year. [LOL] [LOL] [LOL]

    We will miss you guys!

    Jeff thinks I should still go. I'm debating. I'll be sure to have a project to ruin beer tasting night for you. [LOL] [LOL]

    We will be in Hybrid Hollow this year, as long as my wife doesn't (once again) reserve Wed / Thurs the week prior to the rally, and Fri / Sat during the rally ! :)
