    Just wanted to try and get a few Florida folks together for the weekend at the Creek. Just a non formal gathering to see camping friends again. If your interested check out the link below. If you can make it we'll see you there.
    Dates are May 24-27. The campground does require a 3 day minimum reservation for the holiday weekend...

    We booked from May 24th - 28th. Bringing the kayaks and poles!

    We are in A7...the A loop contains the most shade. Frank can help answer any questions about this place. One more thing...A9 is a pretty small site next to A7, so only book if you want to feel pretty cozy to us! [:D]

    Also, this place does lots of stuff for the kids on weekends too. Scavenger hunts, games, etc. and grouped by ages to make it fair for everyone. We attended last Easter and they had Egg Hunts for kids and Adults. One rule for the adult egg hunt was that a cold beverage had to be in one hand at all times! Good times...Good times....

    Florida is a little outside of my regular commute, so I doubt I'll be able to join you. However, I do have plans to boondock for the weekend once I return from California for some mandated training. Have fun, I know I will!!!

    I hope to see you all there, I'm currently trying to talk the DH into joining you. (our trip to HH has now turned into a day trip the following weekend) He's just a little nervous as this will be our first camping trip in our NTU pup. I have assured him that there will be plenty of seasoned campers there that I'm sure would be willing to help in the event that we needed it. So I'll keep you posted.

    With the other people in pups, that would probably be your best bet for a first place to camp.
    Lots of the people attending have plenty of experience in pop ups and would be more than willing to help you if you needed it.

    Join on in if you'd like... As mentioned plenty of folks to help out and if something is forgotten one of us will most likely have it. As mentioned the Creek may not have as much shade but they do offer plenty of activities for the holiday weekend and we will have a get together dinner most likely Saturday evening... Nothing formal just some good eats! [SUN]

    Soon enough...soon enough. BTW...I think I'm making some Venison/Pork meatloaf in the DO from the thread started here a little bit ago. It looks so good.

    Getting closer! I think that I can get the 2 kayaks on the pup with just noodles! I will have to tie them down pretty good, but shouldn't be a problem. We are ready to go camping!
