    I'm standing in a Home Depot parking lot cutting up insulation board so I can fit into my car LOL. I've still got to install that under the mattresses and close her up before the rains come. Thursday will be here before you know it!

    Hey I stood in line for over an hour at a microbrew can release on Friday so I've got some limited edition goodies for the tasting!

    Very nice. The truck and trailer are hooked up and ready to go should be on the road around 8am for a 1pm arrival tomorrow.

    Deb has her kayak so will be kayaking with the group

    Plus 2 for breakfast. Contribution: Muffins of "some fruity sort... apple or banana, or ... let me see what I have." I didn't point out to her that bananas are not fruit, so I'm learning after all these years.
    Plus 2 for the evening group meal as well. Contribution: Taco Turkey wraps.
    Wachusett? Is so, which offering? I don't want to duplicate.

    I intend to skip out of work in the afternoon on Thursday to get there early evening. N17 if you want to bring your chairs and popcorn to watch the set-up circus.

    Nope, Tree house, so we're safe!

    I might be putting on my own big top show over on N32. See you Thursday!

    Sorry to hear you cant make it Zendecat but understandable.
    Weather looks great for the weekend and foliage should be beautiful.
    You guys are having way too much fun prepping and getting ready for this Vermont adventure and that's a good thing. I am bringing the camper with me to work Friday and hoping to leave by 1:30 and be there in 2 hours.
    I need 2 more folding tables for the buffet line. If you have one, bring it please.
    The Chili Cook-Off trophy is finished and polished so don't forget your Chili Saturday niģht.
    If I dont see you before, I will see you all at the meet & greet/beer tasting Friday night at 7:00 - N20

    I will be un supervised Thursday & Friday. So I have no Idea what I'll add to breakfast buffet but I'll figure something out by than. Doris should be showing up Friday evening in time for some adult beverages. We can't wait to see you all again it's been too long.

    Hmmm...
    Sharon and I had planned to arrive later in the afternoon; but we’re already awake, so we could range to be there in time to score your parking...:);)

    Yeah!:D

    Grocery shopping is done (thank you Jeff!), packing will commence tonight after a parent night at Jake's school. Tomorrow will be the push to get all my school work done for the week so I can enjoy the no internet, no cell service peace that is VT. I have a half day on Thursday so we'll hook up and wait for Jake to get home from school around 3:45pm. My hope is that we pick him up at the bus stop with the camper in tow and head to the highway. With any luck we will be pulling into Hybrid Hollow before 7pm.

    I've decided no kayaking for us this year. Not really impressed with what I've seen with inflatable ones so I didn't end up buying any.

    Final grocery shopping this evening. Can Jeff do mine too?
    You know, if you don't kayak, you can always enjoy day-drinking with us non-kayakers.

    I put some ice-bottles in the cooler last night to prep it for the trip. Will load up the cooler on Thursday morning and then go get the camper. I plan on leaving mid-day and doing an overnight at the Delaware Water Gap (Worthington State Forest in NJ).

    See it pays to not be on the board all the time... sorry Jimmy, I did it last night and am not going back out except for beer... and day drinking sounds good. Are we planning on doing the breweries on Friday?

    We'll see what my schedule is on Friday. I've got a little converter wok to do with Donna. But that shouldn't take too long.
    And I need to make a beer stop tomorrow as well. Gotta go to my "weird beer" store.
