General Campfire Discussion / Bag Awning Repair
« on: July 06, 2017, 12:09:30 PM »
The thick plastic awning strip that attaches to the camper separated from the awning bag during our last camping trip with 40 mph winds.

80 lb braided nylon fishing line

A flaw in the original sewing is that the thread was cotton and one long piece so it was only a matter of time when one end started to separate.  I sewed it with an upholstery needle in 12-18 inches separate sections across the 16' awning.

Finished product.

General Campfire Discussion / Additional Storage
« on: June 27, 2017, 09:29:30 AM »
Wife was looking for a place to store rolls, bread, chips, snacks, etc while camping.

Closet organizer turned sideways.  I cut 1/4 plywood for the top and bottom to strengthen it, tapped support bars to thread hooks to hand it.

Additional information about this rally:
Rally History: This is the 10th year we've had a Thanksgiving Rally with five of the years were at this campground, it's a great place.

Campground: This campground only has 55 sites and the electric sites sell out every year.  The camp sites 148 thur 155 are in a open wagon wheel layout with the center site (149) as our gathering site.  There is little privacy at these sites but a great time socializing and the kids playing.

Weather: The weather has been pretty consistent over the years with comfortable cooler fall weather during the day and cold nights around a large group campfire.

Gathering Dinner: Our group dinner is Saturday evening and with Marc and many others help, I cook 3 or more turkeys and everyone brings Thanksgiving sides or desserts for a group sit-down meal together.  Followed by a large campfire, music and memorable stories.

Area Information: Caledonia is in the northernmost section of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail passes through the park.  All sites allow pets and many have electric. 

Booking in not available until spring, mark your calendars.  We will post and remind everyone.

General Campfire Discussion / Kicked out of the pool
« on: April 20, 2017, 10:52:12 AM »
I need your opinion, I was staying a few days at a campground with my daughter and her friend.  The day we were scheduled to leave, we woke up, had breakfast, packed the camper and moved the camper off the site so it was available for another person.  We had a few hours to kill so we went for a swim in the pool.  There was a few others swimming and no life guard. 

At 2pm (check out time) an employee from the office came out and told us that it was check-out time and we had to either leave the pool or pay $4 per hour, person to use the pool.

After spending several days there spending money left and right with paying for the site, ate at the restaurant, paid for mini golf, bought ice cream and more, I thought it was a lame thing to do.  Your thoughts?

What's Cookin / Instant Pot
