    Sounds like it would be a great time. Only problem for me is that I will be in New Mexico at that time. Another time or may be next year?
    All of those that will be attending, have fun!

    Gumbias and/or I will be visiting Yukon Trails next month. We'll get some pictures of the CG and the sites for everyone to check out. I'll get a list of some attractions that might be of interest to those who might want to explore the area.

    With Yukon Trails CG being so close to Wisconsin Dell's I wanted to get a list of together of what the area has to offer for those who wanted to do some "exploring" while at the rally.

    The problem is where to start as there are so many things available in the area, The amusement and water parks, shopping, scenic rides, Golf courses, restaurants and more.

    Since there are so many things available I've included this link:
    http://wisdells.com/WisconsinDellsAttractions/index.cfm

    You'll see there is something for everyone if you want to explore.

    Please don't tell my kids that we're close to the Dells. They'll be teasing us all weekend to go to Noah's Ark.

    Bullfrog, I don't think you're going to get off that easy unless you blind fold them on the way there. I'm pretty sure you'll probably pass a billboard about every mile for the place.

    I've been asked about the transportation of firewood to the CG. The WI DNR does have a policy in place in regards to how far firewood can be transported from the destination. Currently it is 50 miles. There are several counties in WI where wood is not to be transported from.

    I've never been asked about firewood here when entering a CG but tomorrow I'll contact the CG and ask what their policy is on firewood.

    I'll also check on the price of wood sold there what type of wood as some CG sell wood that is more like kindling than wood.

    OK I called Yukon Trails CG this morning and asked about their firewood policy. They said it's fine to bring firewood in as long as you're not selling it.

    They do sell bundles of wood at $4.00 each but the girl I spoke with didn't know what type of wood it was.

    I agree slabs of pine bark are not my idea of firewood.

    Great! looking forward to possibly getting to say hey. There is a lot to do in the area with the dells being so close, or do nothing at all. [:D]

    Hope you can make it. I know my wife and I are anxious to meet some of the great members from the Portal.

    There are a limited number of sites so anyone thinking of attending should reserve their site as soon as possible.

    Like it's been said "get while the gettin' is good"

    Here is a link where you can download coupons for attractions, dinning and lodging, camping, and shopping.

    To have access to the coupons I only needed to provide my email address first name and zip code. They sent a confirmation email and you're good to go.

    Hard to believe we are already in June and the camping season will be over before you know it. Although August might seem far off the WI rally will be here before you know it.

    The CG is is in a good location and can be reached easily by most campers in WI and neighboring states as we do have some members coming from MN.

    There are still sites available so we hope to see you there.

    Dave
