Two more added to the list of going, I'm working getting the new gadgets ready to show Gump this time.
Gadget Man!

Good to see you're coming. Not sure I'll have any new gadgets... except a new tablet with GAIA software that I have no clue on how to use yet... and a new GMRS radio.

So you're +1 this year... I'll add you to the roster.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I finally registered. I still need to reserve my campsite.

I have also been updating the Scavenger hunt documents. (insert evil laugh here)

I've never learned a thing from anyone who agreed with me...
Never been to one of these campsites. Will the gathering site be right next to the tent camping and will it have electricity, water and close to restrooms? That will determine whether my wife comes with me or not.

This map of the campground might help. The place where we camp is to the right and up from the 5 mph speed limit sign. There is a nice bath house/bathroom close by and the red sights have electric and water. The scale is off in the map. The bath house is pretty darn close.

I saw that map a few days ago, then came back and couldn't find it to save my life. Thanks SGT!

EDIT: Planning to show this to wifey tonight after dinner. Probably will reserve a spot and get registered here.
