Figure it takes about 6 to 7 hours (giving extra gas up time) if we leave at 2 am we should be good to meet everyone at Rausch at 10 am. Dave we normally drive down 84 would there be some place good on 84 to meet you. And we will be traveling at Normal Defender speed 75 mph and slowing a little on the hills (Jimmy's 90 is limited by the speedo offset.

What Campground have we decided to stay at? I don't really care just as long as it is open this late in the year. If the trailer park we stayed at last year is not open we can always camp out at Rausch on the trail, only problem is there are no showers, not a problem for me but I think I know some wifes that may have a problem with that.

KOA and RC sound like a good combo. Kinda busy these days, so could someone volunteer to make reservations for us?

Mike...

Meeting off of I-84 would be perfect for me. I think there's a rest stop just after Exit 70 southbound (around Willington, CT). That's one option (I see the reststop on Delorme, never actually been there). Then at Exit 68 (further south) there seems to be a quite a few businesses: Subway, Texaco, Papa T's Homestyle Cooking, Electric Blue Cafe??? something there might work too!

Speed should be fine, I tend to slow on the hills a bit too while towing. So... leave 2 am, arrive 9 am, setup tents, etc, on the trails at 10. when do we sleep ? I imagine we all need to make separate reservations at KOA?

Cool We can exit 70 sounds good, I think it takes us about 2.5 to 3 hours to get there.

Ken I don't think I have been to KOA but I did find their website (I think)

www.koakampgrounds.com

And in the PA area

http://www.koakampgrounds.com/where/pa/index.htm

My guess is it is this camp ground?

http://www.koakampgrounds.com/where/pa/38180/index.htm

Which would be cool as they have cabins for the people who don't want to tent it.

I know normaly we try and get a group site that everyone can set up camp in one place and sometimes we get better rates. What we need to know is who is comming when so we can tell them what to expect

So far:

ME Fir and Sat
Jimmy Fri and Sat
CVC maybe?
Peter Reed ???
MR. Ken Fri and Sat
Tyler Fri and Sat
Charles Fri and Sat
Trevor and his roudy crowed for Fri and sat
Eric N Fri and Sat
Dave Souza Fri and Sat

I Just listed the days we would be camping, and you are listed in order of reply to the thread.
Now I know Dave has a camper, and I am tenting it, but before we make reservations we need to know who else is tenting it. I can call KOA and make sure we are all set up, I will most likly be in the first group to get there anyway, but I want to get my ducks all in a row before I call.

One thing about that KOA is that when we stayed their last time they didn't have that many spots for tents. Most of the place was for RVs. I don't think that they had a group camp spot either.. The were however in the process of making more tent sites.

Sorry Charles... I've only got a queen bed in the camper, and I just don't know you well enough .

So, your brother always brought the Marmite along for camp breakfast... what about you? I haven't had the 'pleasure' of a nicely toasted Marmite bagel for almost a year!

I might be either looking for a seat or won't be comming. I'm not sure yet. The truck was running really hot at MAR and spiked into the red on the trip home. I think I've cleaned the radiator of all the mud. I hope to have a better idea this week of what's up with the truck.

Damn I did a piss poor job of circulating and meeting everyone at MAR - never even saw you!

I'll have an open seat if you need it - would be glad to have the company.

I need to replace my viscous fan befre then though as I have a little overheating problem myself

Funny thing.. I think Tyler was hanging in our camp when you wandered in to say Hi Charles. Its a shame a lot of you didnt come back the other nights, we had more food than we know what to do with on the smoker and would have gladly feed you. By Sat night and one that stopped and said hi or what not we filled with some pulled pork and ribs before we let them out of camp. LOL

Yeah, it was tough because I had my family with me, and I was also camping with my brother so we ended up running trails with the Florida guys.

Anyway, the PA trip should be a lot easier to get to know a fe of you better rather than seeing an overwhelming number of D90s and owners

Speaking of which I need to see how the D90 picture turned out. Where is that camera...

Just wondering, but, where does every one want to camp? KOA? Echo Valley? At Rausch? There is another camp ground near there as well and I can't remember what it's called... It's not Red Ridge though. Just wondering where I need to call to make a reservations or at least check to see if they will be open and have space for us....

Tyler, if your 90 is still down and you need a ride up there let me know..

I was under the impression it was the KOA... but I guess you mentioned the tent space issue, right? I'm flexible.

Son of a. I knew I should have come back and hung out with ya'll. Oh well next year maybe I'll camp in the compound if ya'll will let me. As soon as my new credit card comes in I'll be paying Trevor a visit to have the gaskets replaced if that's the problem.
