One of my assistants for my AHG Troop is a gung-ho hiker. She has laid out a menu for the girls that is sure to make them never want to camp again. I'm sending out a new menu for them that will be lots easier and lots tastier. My assistant in the troop wants them to bring stuff with no refrigeration and that is dehydrated. Yeah, right, I'm bringing coolers, stoves, grills, pots, pans, and everything else. I'm going to introduce these girls to glamor-camping "clamping". If any want to hike the Appalachian Trail, they can do that dehydrated menu, but I'm going to eat well, and I'm sharing with the girls!!!

No cable TV, but we will have our DirecTV dish and will have it hooked up. You can watch at our place. We will have a TV outside.

That is great camping weather. I love it in the high 40's and low 50's at night so a fire feels GOOD!!

Getting excited for our season to begin.

I really don't care that much about the cable TV.. I'll put the antenna up and see if I can pick anything up.. If not. I have some DVDs in the camper.. Usually only have the TV on early morning or late at night.

We'll bring veggie trays.

Richard you cook great food I don't blame you, that dehydrated food is for hiking and grilling is for camping.

No TV for us, we don't camp with a TV, its at home. But Dave does the PC movies.

Glad the weather looks nice, we'll get some fishing in..

Darlene, I had forgotten that you were a fisherman, fisherwoman, fishmom, fishergal, whatever! On Sunday, the banks are FULL of adults trying to catch any of the leftover fish from the kids fishing day. We are staying all afternoon and evening on Sunday, so you are welcome to hang out with us most of the afternoon. Check-out is not until 3 pm, and on Sundays, unless it is a holiday weekend, they don't worry about that.

We went by today and the park is ready for the kids. There were 12 campers in the park, 10 in LL and 2 in Cove VIew.

See y'all on Thursday afternoon.

Extended forecast for Duffield. Looks like the weather will be pretty good, but there is a chance of rain on Friday. The local TV station says it's only a 40% chance of rain on Friday. As long as it's not an all day event, that is fine with me. It's only supposed to be spotty showers.

Ready to go - working on cleaning the 5'er tomorrow. It's not been touched since we left Panther Creek in October of last year.

Well.. I checked the forecast this morning.. Still calling for rain on Friday. So I canceled my reservation. I just don't like camping in the rain. I hope to see everyone in the fall.

Weather.com is calling for a 10% chance of rain on Thursday, 30% on Friday (isolated t-storms) and 10% on Saturday.

In the spring, I don't think you can get much better than that.

Oh well, we will miss you. Dave and Dar, you guys are still coming, aren't you? I will meet you there on Thursday.

Check-in is at 4:00 pm. I plan to check in about noon. The only time that is a problem is a holiday week, so this week will be no problem. There are 11 sites open for Thursday, so only 7 taken. 5 of those will be us - you and Dave, us, Dave and Jane, Roy and Melinda and now Joe and Shelley Fawbush have decided to join us. All 3 couples are fun to be around. Roy and Melinda will be bringing their 4 year old grand daughter.

I think they sell firewood at the campground. The state website says leave your firewood at home.

They do sell firewood at the campground - it's $4.00/bundle. I hope to have some delivered to us or Butch will stop and pick some up at his sister's.

We plan to leave the house about 11 am, so should be there setting up by noon. At least that is the plan, if it goes smoothly.

Thank you so much for the ones of you that travelled up to Natural Tunnel for our event this past weekend. Friday's weather was pretty nasty, but at least the rain did quit late that afternoon and Saturday could not have been better.

In case you didn't count, I did! We fed 33 on Saturday night.

Just a run-down of who all was there and what sites they were in.

Joe and Shelley Fawbush were in site #9 (Morgan and Sarah)
Roy and Melinda Nixon were in site #10 (Zoey)
Dave and Jane Jarvis were in site #11
JB and Sarah Simerly were in site #12 (Maverick and Austin)
Butch and Donna were in site #13 (Elora and Jayda)
Chuck was in site #15
Dave and Darlene were in site #16
W.C. and Melisha were in site #17 (Carson, Courtney and boyfriend and Chris and girlfriend)
Ray and Karen were in site #18 (Dylan and Jade)
Richard and Caroline were in the group site with a bunch of other young teen girls.

Yes, many of these are not members, but I think they will be joining us soon.

Robert and Reta Hill came down for dinner on Saturday and brought their dutch oven.

Now I am looking forward to Panther Creek in October (I assume that is where we will be going).
