    ON a side note, I spoke with a woman names Chris today at WSP, regarding my family coming this Sunday for a Mother's day breakfast, and she seemed very nice. I asked about having a pot luck dinner and some gatherings if we booked a block of say 14-16 sites, and she said more than 4 people on a site are fine, as long as they aren't camping there or sleeping there, all in that site. A pot luck would be absolutely fine, no worries. I didn't ask her about the kegs of sangria, but I'll work some magic this weekend.. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_lol.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Laugh Out Loud">

    Chris,
    Now wait a minute.
    Stop giving the rookie wrong info.
    Checking the weather 6 months from now would be Nov. 8th. That won't do much good for Aug.
    It's like your trying to sabotage him.. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_lol.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Laugh Out Loud">

    Damn, I'm itching to get this thing going ASAP! I have to add also, that we will be attending this park many times this summer, so mini rallies may be in order, that way if I can't be on PUP, nor can the PUP members there enjoying the weekend with me!
    I just want to check out a few more things this weekend for the park. IF there are ANY areas of the park anyone wants me to look into, as well as photos, please ask as I'm looking forward to looking the park over from end to end! As of now, its just a matter of activities for the kids. The only thing other than on the sites would be to hike with mom and dad, or to play down at the beach/ swimming area.
    Sorry to fourkids for hijacking this thread, I'm VERY sorry for that! I hope you can make it to the rally, and it will all be worth it. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile">
    As for the beer wagon, I think it fits quite well. I'm not a big beer guy, but I do wish I had a taste of the PUP brew, glad John L got a picture of it!

    Is it August yet? <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile">

    Chris,

    You didn't confuse me in any way. I knew exactly what you meant. I guess I confused you.

    Rain or no rain. Isn't that why we have pups.....

    Kevin,

    What site are you on?
    We may take a ride up there Sat to look around.
    Maybe bring the kayaks there.

    Kevin, there will be more PUP brew in the future. It was a small batch brew and went rather quicker than we expected. We will have to stock pile for the next gathering.

    Kevin, as far as activities for the kids even though there is no playground, there are some nice open areas for sports, kites, etc. The beach is great and the hiking trails are really nice too. No worries there.

    And I'm sure I speak for FourKids when I say no highjack worries either. We're glad to see others will be enjoying this beautiful campground and we hope to be able to join you this time around. :)

    ~Queen Bee, happy mama of four little worker bees~

    LOL Lou, no promises on the quality of the sangria, I'm also a rookie at making it! Hadn't had it until this past weekend, let alone made it!

    QueenBee, I sure hope you and FourKids can make it! I'm very excited to get this going, and you are right on the big open areas for activities, as well as hiking/beaches. Let's camp! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile">

    Hey, all you NE PUP members!

    Met with Kevin today at Wells SP.
    Looks like a really nice SP, very rustic. Should be a go.
    I'll let Kevin give you the details.
    And Chris, I'm ordering no rain for this campout!!!<img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_lol.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Laugh Out Loud">

    Kevin, I hope you two had a great time. The weekend turned out better than expected.

    Now have you started a thread yet for the August Rally? You need to. And you need to declare the dates and sites area officially so we can start making reservations. I don't want any mysterious strangers to get a site in the middle of us all! Actually, I just want to make sure we all get sites in the same area, especially if the sites are all spread out.

    Lou,

    Thanks, I was so excited to get the site with the hot tub that I forgot to check off the gorgeous weather option. Glad to hear it's a nice park. How was the sangria?
