EDIT... I also read they have a gun range.

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

That looks a little more modern then some of the campground shower houses I've seen.

Ryan... If you decide to stay at a motel... you can ditch your trailer and truck in my campsite. Should be room because I'm gonna sleep in the back of my truck.

Id like a site with electric but I can setup pretty much anywhere I can fit. I have no problem parking in primitive if there room for a 26ft trailer.Im pretty much self contained with running water,12v power and a generator for 110 as long as Im not bothering anyone with it running and I normally bring my huge grill too.

FWIW if a generator is too loud adding a little sugar to the gas quiets them down quite a bit. :icon_twisted:

Sugar will not dissolve in gasoline and will never affect the engine at all, unless it just clogs the fuel filter. It will probably just sit in the bottom of the fuel tank and never be noticed. I don't know where that myth came from.

I'm going to coming in late Friday I think. Not sure. Probably check into a motel.

I may put the aluminum cap on my ranger trailer and camp out of that, my work schedule could change things but thats my game plan.

I've eaten there, but it's been a few years. It would be like taking him to Buffalo Wild Wings.

I've thought about doing a hotel Friday and camping Saturday. The Loan Ranger has the tent on it, so I just need a place to park it. The only reason I would probably camp their Friday is just so I can be there setup and ready to meet people on Saturday.

Sounds like I should stick to my original plan and camp at the park. Wouldn't mind a gathering at the goofy moose place for dinner.

I drove back from that wedding in Millbrook this week. I basically held my foot to the floor in my Mazda Speed3 and blasted my way out of the East Coast. You have to reach Escape Velocity to leave that place. It's those fawking hats the New York troopers wear. You have to get to Pennsylvania so you can get arrested by a trooper in a proper stetson.
