    I have reserved for Friday June 18th - Monday 21 - site #387 and am really looking forward to it. Definately up for pot luck as we get closer. I saw a lot of bookings already there on Feb 14th so I went ahead and booked dropping Snow a note which he passed on. Its a very nice park - I used to climb there but there are many pictograms on the rock face and some great hiking and paddling options.

    I booked the entire week, June 18-27. I've got site #369. I can't wait.

    One thing though is, even though it can be done with one person, it is very difficult to set up. If anyone is willing, I would greatly appreciate a few extra hands, and will be more than willing to donate some beer for said extra hands.

    I'm sure there will be lots of help available. Just wanted to confirm with you, in your pm you said site #371. Here you menitoned #369, did you swap?

    Just checked my reservation receipt. I have #369. I wanted #371, but someone else snagged it on me. Sorry about the confusion, Dyslexia sucks!

    We would love to travel for a rally as we are new to pup. Provincial parks that we have travelled to include Balsam Lake and Emily. All within a 1 1/2 hour drive from Toronto.

    Having looked at the dates, unfortunately, we won't be able to make it. [:(] (East or West). I am retiring in June and am going to be busy wrapping things up at work at the time. Maybe next year!

    I have never been there myself.

    I'm camping alone, and would most likely get bored pretty quick if there isn't much to do. I'm also a very social person, and enjoy doing activities with other people more than if I were to do them alone, so if anyone is willing to have me join the fun, don't be afraid to ask me to tag along (I won't bite). However, I will not invite myself... that's kinda rude.

    Hey Doug (warwgn3 ),

    We'll keep you in mind - be sure to come by and check out our crazy family.

    Someone was talking about organizing a pot luck as we get closer to the weekend so stay tuned.

    We will likely be bringing bikes along so if you ride, bring yours.

    Mr Custom,

    I'll definitely check out your family.

    Do you have to smoke the lucky Pot? [LOL] I'm not much of a cook, but I'll see what I can whip up.

    I don't have my own bike, so I don't ride anymore (I gave up biking when I got my drivers license)... but that won't stop me from riding with a campground bike rental.

    Hey, great to see some activity going on. I thought i'd keep things going by listing a few links about the park.


    Friends of Bon Echo

    Mr. Custom...how many in that crazy family of yours?

    Hey, Mr_custom....

    I was able to get my hands on a Used bicycle from my friend for free. When we camp at the rally, you'll see me pulling in with a bike tied to the trailer, and will be able to ride along with your crazy family.

    I do have one question though... I know it probably wouldn't set a good example for the kids.... but when I was growing up, I was never forced into wearing a bike helmet, and I didn't even wear one when I was learning to ride. Ontario's bicycle helmet laws didn't go into effect until I left my teen years, long after I got my drivers license. The very few times I've ridden a bike, since the laws were put in place, I tried a couple of helmets, and never felt comfortable with them on and preferred to go without them. My Question to you is: How would you feel about me NOT wearing a helmet if I tag along with one of your family rides?

    Ok, so we're a month away from the rally, and there hasn't been any update for over 2 months. Is it really just the 3 of us, or are more campers showing up un-announced?

    I haven't received any pm's or emails from anyone else. As of today there are some sites still available. We're up in the air right now, because of family issues. If anyone else has booked, let me know and i can add you to the map.
