    I am still looking for a pet site with electric. If anyone decides they can not make it, let me know.

    Bill, Don't forget that we have a waver on the pet restriction (See this post). Looks like there is one electric site left, #45. Once that is gone there is an ADA site (#41) that would be open to anyone since all other electric site are taken.

    Welcome to mortonlykeleigh & tlhdoc. Glad you can join us.

    Great, I'm glad you and Bev will be able to make it.

    I think that make about 22 members attending this rally.

    Happy New Year, everyone!

    We booked C39 a few days back.

    It looks like I might have made a slight faux pas with the reservation. I'd have sworn that there were no other electric non-ADA sites left when I reserved but reading the previous posts, it appears #45 was, so I must have overlooked it somehow. I guess it worked out OK, since BiXLL took it and a pet waiver.

    As of this morning, the only available electric site is C41 (ADA, No pet), but is open to all, ADA or not, since the rest of the electric sites are gone.

    Great, boy this is going to be a big rally! We have 23 sites plus the gathering site out of 47 reserved. I called the park to see about getting the Host site (there wasn't anybody in it last year) and also site #4 (which is closed for some reason) opened for us to reserve, but the head ranger was not in.

    And come on, there must be some brave souls out there willing to came without electric, like busdriverwc75 has opted to do.

    Still waiting to see if I have a full time job. Supposed to get laid off Feb 1 when the ambulance co I work for goes MICU (1 EMT, 1 Paramedic). Until they decide to tell us for sure (Orig date was Nov 1, then December 1, then sometime in January), I can't schedule anything. But I can't just blow the time I have earned either, in case I am kept b/c I want to go on vacation in the summer.

    Fooey. Turns out we'll be taking our Pack camping that weekend so I can't come. This is one of my favorite rallys, too.

    Ok, will have to speak with the DW to see if she is interested in going. I will not know if I can go until I get my work schedule in mid-February.

    We do not need hook-ups. We have nice warm sleeping bags...

    I had to cancel my reservation...it seems my aunt and uncle decided to have a big 50th wedding anniversary bash that weekend. Wish I were able to make it...sure sounds like fun. I was site C10 (electric and pet friendly) if anyone needs it.

    Thank you! I nabbed it already. Now, I won't have to look at a moping teenager who wants to charge up all of his electronic gadgets & couldn't on a nonelectric site.
    Oh yea, & having my coffeemaker brew before I even get out of bed will be nice, too. :)

    I wish they'd just give up the MICU idea and keep our favorite EMT.

    Yea! I have my job!! A newly minted paramedic (one of my co-workers) was hired by the hospital, so his position is mine!! I will be working the weekend of French Creek (bummer). But I will be working! Woohoo! AND they went MICU Feb 1 without any serious problems.

    Have a great time for me.

    Glad it all worked out for you, Barb. Sorry you'll miss out on FC, but it's certainly easier & less stressful to find another camping wknd, than to find a new job.

    Hi campers, I already let Steve know, but Bob and I have decided not to do the Spring opener at this time for a couple of reasons, so site 38 is open. We don't trust the weather and also want to have some work done on our camper first. Where we have it stored has restricted business hours until April, and it would be difficult getting it ready to go with our other responsibilities. Another big thing is when I went to cancel the reservation, it said it was already canceled. I must have made a mistake when doing it, because I couldn't find that the money was taken out of my account. Good thing we changed our minds! If anything changes, we may try and do a last minute reservation or just take a drive up there to check everyone out.
    Happy Camping everyone!
    Pat
