    I'm bringing chicken to grill, will feed me and 3 - 4 others, also some regular pasta salad for saturday night dinner!

    June 3, 2014

    • Steve

      Denise, regarding grills... I planned to use the in ground fire ring. If you want to bring a small grill, that would be better. Diane is going to bring another small grill and I have a full bag of charcoal for both grills.

      June 3, 2014

    • Diane J.

      Mine is a gas grill

      June 4, 2014

    I'll bake some brownies.

    It's been decades since I've camped; so all this will be new - and imperfect - for me. I will find a decent quantity of potato salad to bring, however.

    June 4, 2014

  • Diane J.

    I will do pancakes and sausage Sunday morning, early for whoever is interested. It is a BYO plate, fork, etc.

    June 3, 2014

    • Steve

      Thanks Diane. Much better than my freeze-dried breakfast :-)

    After browsing the grocery store the Brats looked easier and more appetizing, so I have 10 beer soaked brats to share, and if you don't mind I'll borrow some of that charcoal Steve? I guess no karaoke takers, LOL!

      Chris, are you camping? Ken has room on his site.

      June 2, 2014

    • Chris G.

      I typed a reply but must not have sent it. I'm happy to pay for half of Ken's site and have the option of camping on Sat eve but I need to leave pretty early on Sunday and won't be riding trails that day. Ken, are you OK with that?

      May 1, 2014

      May 2, 2014
