    Mike,

    I may have missed this, but what time can we check in on Friday? My boss just informed me that I need to use 8 more hours of vacation time before the end of the year....bummer....

    I'm not sure when check in is, actually. I'd call the campground; if nobody's on the site from Thursday night it's probably anytime. They're pretty easy-going there.

    On another note, I looked over the Haunted Happenings site's event schedule for Saturday and Sunday, and I don't see enough different to change the costume party-potluck to Sunday, so I'm planning on doing this Saturday at 5pm (earlier start time due to earlier sunset and cooler temperatures). This still leaves time for anyone who wants to go to a later night event Saturday after the potluck, and gives us Sunday as a rain date if needed. I've started another thread for that. Thanks! :)

    I'm psyched for this one! Can't wait to see everyone again! Though, I ask everyone to post your PuP user name on a piece of paper on your camper soi know who's who! Haha

    Looking forward to a Saturday potluck! I plan on checking out Salem on Saturday too with some friends!

    Considering buying a new awning. Might have it for the Rally, might wait till before the new spring season kicks off instead of spending 900 on a new awning to use once this season then store. Lol

    Hi Ben. Do we have assigned sites for the Salem rally? Michele and I plan on getting there early Friday afternoon.

    We'll be there Friday too! Please sign us up for quinoa or rice side dish (spicy OK?) How many people will there be? Just the two of us [:)C] [:)C] Sorry if this is not the right place to post this, I could not find a potluck signup.
    Re: activities - we are interested in Salem activities, weather dependent of course. Here's one tour we were looking at:
    http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g60954-d1108736-Reviews-Salem_Night_Tour-Salem_Massachusetts.html
    We will easily be identified by our (as yet unpainted) 1973 Apache Mesa!

    Ill be there Friday also! Hoping to get on the 7 or 730 AM ferry from Orient Point, and that should land me in Salem around noon, maybe a hair before if there's no traffic. (Last year there was TONS!)
    The Potluck sign-up disappeared, so too did my thread on the better attractions Ive been to up there. (There are LOTS of tourist traps)

    You can put me down for Hearse cookies for the desert table, I'll also do a dinner item. Might do grilled cheeses and tomato soup again. Its a cool weather favorite of mine and real easy to do for group meals! LOL

    I'll be easily identified by my very loudly painted 1977 Westfalia!
    (Theres a seeming unloved vintage Apache around the corner from my house!)

    So sad to see one fall by the wayside, they are great campers! We are looking for another Apache (72, 73, 74 preferred) that has more original stuff than ours.

    Meal thread restored. I'll get the stuff above on the thread when I can.

    Regarding site assignments: I'll be getting there Thursday evening and will be getting the pack of site tags at that time. When you come in on Friday you can just come right to the field and I'll give you one. It'll be a combination of first come first served, rig size, and departure date that'll wind up determining site assignments. We did this last year and it worked well. Thanks!

    Well, it looks like I'm going to have to bail on this one. My breaks started grinding yesterday so I took the car into the mechanic this morning. Need new breaks on the back and the front are getting ready to go too so I need to get all four done. So there goes my camping budget.

    So if someone is on the waiting list they may have my reservation, no charge.

    Sorry I'm going to miss this one. I was really looking forward to a long weekend of camping. Really needed it too! [:(]

    Sorry you can't make it. It won't be the same without PopupSteve.
    Good thing you don't have a far commute to work now. [;)]
