    I know I'm going to miss a good time, but it's going to be about a 10-12 hour drive for us and making room for a week of camping in early July won't work for us.

    Yeah, things will go fast this weekend.

    I limit myself to about 4 hr drive for a weekend of camping. I might go a little farther for the rally to be with friends, but not too much farther. 1 1/2 - 2 hrs for a weekend is perfect. I don't blame you at all for not wanting to go 10 hrs + border crossing, its just too much.

    Mel's (this Mel, not her sister Mel) is even wound up yet... I know what to say to get her spooled up... lol but I don't want to get beaten like a rag doll covered in the Coronavirus (a.k.a beer virus) so I ain't sayin' it..

    Too much snow here for snake hunting to begin.. maybe squirrel or chipmunk hunting, actually that is open all year isn't it ??

    Oh come on.. you really haven't had fun with this group until you have had a few cups of "Blue sky, Green leaves" and you know you wanna try it ..

    I'll do about a 1hr - 2hr drive for each night of camping.. but anything more then a 6 hour drive will be split up into a 2 day stop over.. Hence why we didn't mind hauling the TT down to Nashville.. stopped in Ohio (twice) and Bowlingreen (this was actually for 5 nights. That trip was still cheaper then camping in Ontario for 16 nights..

    Don't worry I'll be up early on Sunday... Might even reserve before bed on Saturday night... With the first being the Wednesday, I don't see too much of an issue.. Now if we were just booking the Friday to Sunday.. that will be hard..

    I guess it depends on how many people will make a week or so out of it, starting on the Tues night. With the 1st being Wed, people have started booking for the Tues night already. They don't want to drive on the 1st, they want to already be set up and doing their thing on the 1st. Including Mel and me, 13 sites got booked in Heydon Way 'A' since last night.

    From my perspective, the “problem’ isn’t with the system. It’s the people who take advantage of the system and book ahead of there arrival dates and cancel later. That’s how I ended up on an unserviced site (pre-solar) and Mike couldn’t get a reservation at all. They need stiffer penalties for shortening the reservation. IMHO

    Yeah but your older... error wiser, travel alone, and don't have a wife and screeming kids in the car, who always need to stop and pee, or are hungry or want to stretch their legs.. Now if Jimmy sold the kids to the Chinese it would mean only a couple stops.. :D:p

    My kids travel like pros and don't scream. It's easy to forget they're back there. I'm the one that has to pee. It's a just that a haul like that means that we would need to stay a while. I only have a certain amount of vacation each year. I've got to spread all that out. I can't drive 12 hours for just a weekender.
    Hell... When I'm retired I'm gonna camp like you, Pat.
