I was reading the instructions on my ice cream maker....it only makes 1 quart and the container must be frozen before I start to make it.....If the container fits in my camper freezer I will be able to make enough for 2 spoonfulls each  :-\ My sister has another ice cream maker that makes a larger quantity that I will look into.  Otherwise I may have to change my pot luck contribution from ice cream to something else. 

Nathan has discovered the game clue so I can assure you we will have the game at our site and he will be willing to play with anyone at anytime if anyone would like to join.  I think professor Plumb did it in the observatory with the rope  ;D

I can put 3 kayaks on my roof and 2 in the bed  for 5 easily.  I will have only 2 kayaks for Nathan and I and Lori's inflatable which we can blow up at the launch.  Maybe we can bring it to 7 if we stack 2 more in the bed. 

I'd say we need water to drink and other basic beach stuff, sunglasses, hat, sun tan lotion, etc.

I have a table and for the pot luck I think I will bring soft serve ice cream.  I have had an ice cream maker that I got for Christmas....I think it is about time I figure out how it works and if I commit to it here it will force me to read the instructions and buy the ingredients.  I'll bring cones, chocolate syrup, and either sprinkles or jimmies.

I started in a coleman Columbia as well.  It worked good for DW and I.....I don't think Nathan even saw that one.  I know I camped with my nephew Evan in it when he was like 4 in the pouring rain.

So who all is in for Tubing/kayaking?  I'm in with Lori and Nathan but I think we'll do it in our kayaks since we already own them and they may be a little more comfortable.

10 days away!!!  I just printed out that tubing info to read up on and show Lori.  I think it would be fun and enjoyable.

Hello, welcome.

The bed weight limits are usually very high....800+ #'s or something crazy.  There is a section on the website (don't remember where) where you can find old brochures and usually the specs portion of the brochure will tell you what the beds are rated for.

Kayaking on the river sounds interesting.  How far and for how long?

There was talk about watching Sharknado.  I'm all for that but someone needs to admit they own the movie and bring it.  Sorry, I own my share of dumb movies but that isn't one of them.  Any other suggestions for movies to bring that people own?  We have to keep in mind the audience, I'll have 2 7yo with me.

Kayaking / Re: Kayak J hooks....are they needed?
« on: June 12, 2017, 07:58:30 AM »
I have put the kayaks in my camper before.  But I wanted to be able to transport them to the local lake when not camping and I just didn't like them in the camper.  I guess I'll make some bow lines for my 3 hour drive next week.

Good call on labeling everything....kayak, paddle, pfd, etc.  I will bring my 30 foot tow chain to lay on the ground or attach to a tree.  Then everyone who wants to lock their kayak up they can lock them up individually so there isn't just 1 key.

Kayaking / Kayak J hooks....are they needed?
« on: June 08, 2017, 09:01:12 AM »
I just purchased 2 kayaks and I have a Thule roof rack system on the cab of my truck.  Currently I only have the flat bars.  No bike racks or kayak J hooks on there.  I am debating about if I need the J hooks or not. 

-Is it better for the kayak itself?
-Is it to put the kayaks on their side to fit more on a smaller roof?
-Are they supposed to make the kayak more secure?
-Are they supposed to make it easier?
-Do you need ropes going from the kayak to the bumper of your car?  That looks like overkill to me.

*I am confident in my tie down abilities and have the proper straps.  I used to go to flea markets with my dad and the roof of the van looked like the Beverly Hillbillies truck driving in with tables and oversized stuff strapped to the roof....never lost anything.
*The bars are super long so putting 2 kayaks side by side laying flat is not a problem.
*I have been watching people load their kayaks on the J hooks and frankly it looks like a major PIA.  Right now I can just put the kayak on the edge and slide it on.  I can load up in under 5 minutes....2 straps per kayak.
