Thanks Chiefbowes :chief: , it has been another great year of camping and we have big things planned for 2018.

Thank you Phil (database wizard) :cheers: and Jen (Facebook Guru), along with everyone else who has helped run a group rally and support the site.  Especially my wife (EwwwwBugs) :kiss: and my family for putting up with me... and you guys.  :o

Now that the last group rally on 2017 is over, we will be working on starting the upgrade.

We will have a new front page and forum section with several new features, fix several things that are broken and an exciting new look.

Hi Everyone, it was another great weekend of camping with old and new friends.  Even 4 families invited their older kids to experience and enjoy our Thanksgiving camping meal.  Rain overnight last night but beautiful and unseasonably warm weather.   

Lums Pond is a beautiful state park with full hookup sites.  It is in an open grass area field with large sites that have limited shade.  FYI - The campground will not allow you to access the campground or your site until exactly 1pm check-in.

Big Thanks to everyone for some amazing food, tables and 10x10 canopies.
- thanks EwwwBugs (my wife) for loving and putting up with me while we plan these events.
- thanks mknott57 & HuskyCampers for starting our huge group fire.
- thanks MariskaHaritay for ordering and coordinating the cord of firewood for the weekend.
- thanks ElmiraFudd for being the wagon master for this group rally and continued Facebook entertainment.
- thanks CampingPhil for everything... the coffee, chaffing dishes, direction, database wizardry and more.
- thanks 2HappyCampers for collecting donations for the event gathering site, firewood, turkeys, etc
- thanks LoneLock for hauling a lot of the event gear onsite
- BIG thanks to chiefbowes, samebutdifferent, 2happycampers and thingette for deep frying 5 turkeys to go with everyone's sides.
- thank you to everyone who helped make this 10th year thanksgiving rally another great one, sorry if I forgot something.

2018, here we come.

Against my better judgement, we will be bringing the theater system and popcorn maker for a movie Friday evening.  I'm not sure what time we will start because I can't find quiet time on their website.

After 10 years of cooking 46 turkeys or over 736 lbs of meat - I am stepping down this year with cooking. 
I think I've done my share.  :omg:

With some help from 2HappyCampers and Samebutdifferent, Chiefbowes will be taking over this year.

over 550 miles apart, if it were a 1,000 miles it would still show a pattern.

As always, you are welcome to start another rally?
