    Looks like we'll pull the old pup out of the garage from winter hibernation and start going over every thing this weekend. Cora asks me every night if it's time to go camping. If the weather looks good we may try to go over Thursday night to make the most of the weekend.

    Have any of you tried any of the geo caches in the park? We are novice "treasure hunters" and might give it a try if they're not too difficult.

    Mighty quiet on this page considering we're only days away from the Spring Opener. Personally, we're pumped! Gonna pop-up in the driveway tomorrow and do some minor repacking. Planning to arrive around noon Friday. Everybody have a safe trip and we'll see you on the set.

    mtn_bikers canceled their reservations for site C-5 but I can't tel if it was picked up yet. The reservation system never put it back to an available status. If a non-PUP camper gets the site, I will switch my site with the gathering site so we don't disturb too much. If a PUP member have the site, please PM me to let me know and I will update the map.

    Weather looks like it will be nice for the rally.

    Stop by & talk with Buxcamper (Mark). He's an avid cacher. I'm sure he must have done some on other trips to FC.

    Not going to be able to make it for the dinner at the rally. [:(] I had hoped that Michael and I could stop by and bring something for dinner and hang out. Our camper is still not done and since it is supposed to be nice this weekend we are going to do a marathon repair job and hopefully get it 95 to 99% complete. We have a trip planned for the first weekend in April and I won't be tenting it. [LOL]

    Have a great time everyone and post lots of pictures!

    Sorry we won't see you, Sherry. It has been too long. But, take advantage of the great weather & good luck with the repairs.

    Thanks for the info Suzanne. I'm going to try and get most everything packed tonight so we can head over tomorrow after work. Weather is looking pretty nice for the weekend.

    Awww, no Sherry. Sorry to hear that.

    I'm ready for a trip. We dewinterized the trailer. Just need to throw clothes, food and toiletries in it.Unfortunately, a mid-afternoon dr appt 1 hr south of here means I get a late start. Hoping for a 7 pm arrival Friday night.

    Marc, lucky you! The 1st yr, I went up on Thurs night & went to work from there on Fri. I would love to do it again this yr, but DS has a late soccer game tonight (8:20) & track time trials tomorrow, so it's not doable for me this time around.
    FYI, I cache also, but have never done any at FC. We usually hit the disc golf course while we're there instead.
    Enjoy tonight & see you Fri evening.

    If you would, let us know when you are going to do that, I have always been curious, but have never seen it done or played.

    My nephew is up there all the time playing disc golf. He says it's a great course.
