Camp at Manatee Springs

I know, we live like 15 minutes from the Spring, but let's plan to camp out over there (we basically do when we are there :) )

I have reserved 2 spots (93 & 94) for us since we had limited response, but there are still other sites available (you will need to reserve on your own, if we don't have any more space). The sites we have will be for tent camping as that will allow more space for everyone to spread out.

We will meet up on Friday, Michael and I will get there early and have a fire cooking, so you guys can take your time, maybe a nice pot of veggie chilli awaiting you...followed by drinks and smores once we get all the tents set up....then we will see where the night takes us as well as the rest of the relaxing weekend of spring diving, maybe some kayaking or hiking or biking even...or just chillin by a fire and having fun :)

Max of 8 peeps per site, 2 cars, so we may have to pay for extra vehicles....but the two sites cost $109 (and that is keeping one for an extra day so we don't have to rush on Sunday).

Sign up guys and lets get our Camp on!

Attendees can pay their share upon arrival - NJ you have a credit for part of your share :) Please if you are coming but getting your own site - put that in the comments and I will adjust the RSVP numbers...wouldn't it be awesome to have this be one of the biggest events :)

Larry getting own site, so that leaves more room :) for anyone else that wants to sign on up!

    I love camping at all times, but the cooler weather made it really nice :) Was great meeting Larry and his family as well as getting to hang out more with Yegor and Jeremy's family! Good times! Got to see Manatees in the River; the water was warm........er than the air :) and more racoons than people hanging around in the park.

    Sorry but im not going to be able to camp this weekend. Luna has been sick and i need to keep her on pedialite and meds. Its not a good idea to bring her and I cant board her in this condition. :(

      That sucks, I would say she could stay at the house, but that would be hectic for you as well :( We will miss you guys!

    NJ & Yegor, we will be bringing tanks so you can just pay us $10/tank that will save you having to rent and bring down with you :) Will update on firewood needs :)

    If it gets too cold we can always head to the house, yes some might still have to sleep in sleeping bags but the heat will be cranked up to keep us toasty warm :)

      Thanks u both for the info. Sounds good to me. I think I am in for the camping.

    We'd be interested in going, but I can't commit quite yet. We'd also be bringing a small motorhome (Dodge/Mercedes Sprinter) if we were to "camp". (We like campfires, but we're not into the whole tent thing). Would that motorhome fit into the camping circle of three spaces you want to rent or would we need to get our own spot? The motorhome is no bigger than a big van and might count as one of the cars.

      The sites we have in mind will accomodate and I would think that no that wouldn't be considered a car and that we should be able to still put some tents around as well :)

      I'm blowing up an air mattress and sleeping in my car if its too cold at night for me lol... I'm a wimp ;)
