Crap, labor weekend is just about the only weekend in the whole year that I already have plans for.

I was hoping for something sooner anyway...

Thanks for the feedback guys, looks like Labor Day isn't the best choice. Early Sept should be good and snow free in these parts, but weather is weather... Late Sept gets into hunting season in D7 as well. Sounds like we're looking towards August. After work I'll get a calendar and see what dates there are.

Turns out I have something going Labor Day as well, so another weekend would be better. I could do the 3rd or 4th weekend in August, or the first full weekend in September.

yeah I'm out of town on laborday weekend too, August would be great for me as September is very busy month for me. Plus less of a wait to do this as I am excited to go and just bought a bunch of camping stuff for the bike

This sounds like a good plan.

If there is a fire ban at campgrounds we might as well do dispersed camping since schools are out august and there will be a lot of families that may see us as the Humungus from mad max not as friendly adventurers. Most campgrounds in the area pretty much have you in your neighbor's lap. But I do see the appeal of a fire if we could have one... and I guess I can speculate on how someone would appreciate a shower even if I can't fully relate.

Do you have a choice?

I mean, you could take it, but won't it just return...

Yeah, well, Shesaid said I had to go hunt the junebugs that are rumored to live in the basil. Not only were the reports of junebugs grossly exaggerated, but then were slugs trying to get into the strawberries! I tossed the one junebug I did find into a nearby black widow's web only to find myself watching nature's dumbest bug try to escape becoming prey to one of the shyest spiders. The ensuing battle was only slightly more interesting than watching the zucchini grow, though I do think it was slower...

But PCVance has a point. August it is, and those are the weekends. I don't think we need another poll, just post up a quick vote.

2nd and 3rd

9th and 10th

16th and 17th

23rd and 24th

I think it might be a good idea to post up who all will be coming, or maybe that will depend on dates. Meh, if you know you're in, let me know. Post it, PM me, whatever. Might want to mention what type of bike as well. I'm going to start editing the first post to include info, so everyone doesn't have to read through the entire thing looking for updates. I'll include a sign up list there and post names as I get them.

I can't do the 2nd and 3rd as Thomas the Train is coming for the little guy. DUH!

Otherwise, I should be good.

In terms of bikes, if you guys really need/want me to bring the Jeep, I'll be on the little bike. If not, I'd probably rock the pig.

Wait, coming where? Is it down at the Roaring Camp place? Don't they do a thing... Maybe some sort of festival?

I can't do the 16th and 17th...unless I have to. Then I can. So I guess they all work for me...
