    OK! - So here it is! I spent some time spinning the Ont Parks Resi Roulette Wheel this morning. Today (March 1) is THE worst day of the whole year to reserve a site. The site is booking for July 30, July 31, and March 1, and fighting everyone wanting to do the long weekend. The site was a total disaster this morning. It took this computer with me signed in and all ready to press the reserve button at 1/4 second after 7:00AM, a laptop set up in the same way hooked to a plan B site, my phone ready to go with the Ont Parks number on speed dial, and 1 hour and 50 mins to get my site booked. By the grace of the camping God's, I actually got the site I needed to get at the 1hr and 40 mins mark. Absolutely insane! But I got it! I logged on at 6:50 AM, and payment for the site went through at 8:38. The sites that I wanted on the park map turned red, then black, then back to green, then the other one went green again, as other people who wanted them must've bailed on them and went back to bed. The sites fall out of their carts and become available again. Then I finally got a phone call through after about 40 attempts and the guy said he couldn't help me because the whole site was totally overwhelmed this morning. All of a sudden the stars aligned, and people shut their browsers off, things freed up, and I got my site. Holy donuts! After everything was done, and I printed receipts, and e-mail receipts, and took a minute to realize that it actually worked, it was 2 full hours.

    Bonnechere, one week on the river, and one week onto the other side of the park, right beside the site we were on last year when you visited. Then heading back again mid Sept., but that doesn't get booked until mid April.

    After 3 full days with the flu, I didn't miss much on here.

    Wrench....so glad you got your site at Bonn. That must make you feel good. I agree, the Civic long weekend is a pain to book. Thankfully, last year when we booked for the Charleston Lake Eastern Rally, it wasn't so bad. We are not camping this Civic long weekend and I'm kind of glad about that.

    Pat.....same goes for us. US Family can camp driveway anytime they wish! We'd be happy to have you. [:D]

    More mild temps on their way. I really hope Spring is here....although I wouldn't doubt if we see more [sf][sf][sf][sf].

    It was tough, but I got the ones that I wanted. Makes me feel great!

    Spring is on the way. I tapped my trees today, and the sap is running good!

    You DO realize I'm a little crazy. As much as I would do it to help, I'd also have a great story!

    Only crazy people would meet up with "strange people" they met online.. Insane people not only meet up but also go spend a weekend camping in the woods with those strange people ..

    WHAT !!!? Only 114 days!!?? Holy crappers! I better get on to thinking about this stuff! Thanks for cluing me in ........Hmmmmm........ it's all coming to me now. I think I will have a clear picture of all this in 2 - 3 days....... I got the Spidee senses tingling. Here it is, 'Dog-a-la-mode', with a side of french fries and donuts. The soup will be Lake Nipissing Sea Turtle. How attached have you and Greg gotten to Fin? I have also heard the beagles are quite nutritious if done just right. I'm just tossing these thoughts around at this point, things could still change.
