I'm going to throw this out there.  Several members have discussed changing it up once and we are working on planning a CanvasCampers group cruise for 2019. 
  • There will be several options for interior room, exterior windows, balcony room and other options.
  • We will be able to make affordable payments over 2018 to pay for it.
  • We will most likely leave from New Jersey or Maryland so many won't have airfare and transfer costs

    • Where: We camp in the family grandstand RV section outside of the track on turn 3.  This keeps us close to everything but not in the middle of it all night.  I'm to old and like to sleep.
    • How Much: 4 nights and 5 days of camping for $150. ($125 for popups) Thursday thru Monday
    • Who: Both men, woman and children are welcome
    • Group Gathering: There are marked sites, first come first serve.  The first person who arrives in the group saves our sites by putting their camper in one, tow vehicle in another, chairs in a 3rd, etc
    • Amenities:

         Electric - There are no utilities at the site.  A few of us run generators for a few hours during the day to charge our batteries for lights, etc at night.  Take showers in our campers etc.  If you don't have a generator, no worries.  You can borrow mine.
         Bath house - There is a bath house with flush toilets and showers.  Showers are normally nice on Thursday and Friday if you go early.  Cold showers later.  The campground is packed on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.  Showers are always cold and busy.
         Campfires are permitted, above ground.  One of us bring a fire pit.[/li][/list]
         Water - a fresh water truck comes around a few times a day to fill your water tank as needed. Cost is $??
         Grey/Black Tanks - HoneySucker comes around daily to empty tanks for a fee. Cost is $??
         Ice - Ice truck comes around daily, about $5 per bag
    • Potluck: Everyone brings their own beverages and snacks.  Prior to the trip, we split up meals and eat most together.  There is a lot of food and we eat well.  Maybe not completely healthy but well. (OPTIONAL)
    • Activities: Typical day is big breakfast, playing bocco ball, corn-hole, ladder golf or other games, lunch, visit racetrack activities and drivers, watch individual track trials, watch truck rain on Saturday, big dinner, drink a few beverages around a campfire.
    • Sunday race day tickets are about $25-$30
    • Tour: Even though I don't gamble, we often visit Pocono Casino one evening for diner, slots or whatever. (OPTIONAL)
    • Camping includes access to the inside of the track via walking or shuttle bus.  There are live bands inside and outside of the racetrack nightly.
    • Pack a hat, sunglasses, suntan lotion, etc for race day
    • Personal coolers for water or other drinks including alcoholic beverages are welcome in the race.  There are restrictions in size and I think they need to be soft coolers.

    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.
