    I have absolutely no idea how this works, but saw "Dude Ranch" and would love to get involved if you plan this trip again. Will see if I can find other events to meet some people in the group before heading out for a weekend away!

    May 23, 2014

    • Edward K.

      Yes I will ride again like last time even with one of the Wranglers Help Gail, however I did have a good time last November & hope this gets planned in 2014 please?

      Yes Donna I did have a good time & hope it gets done again this November & after all I did have a good time when I went there.

    Had a very memorable & one of the most enjoyable times at Pinegrove Dude Ranch, of this being my second overnight meetup trip & second event with the Bucket List Bunch. Enjoyed being with Melinda & the other bucket listers that were part of this event. Also enjoyed meeting other people that were staying at the Pinegrove Dude Ranch, mingling with them as well as the Bucket Listers. Now for my itinerary there: First took a walk down around pinegrove properties including that walk we did down by the lake. Then had an outside almost midday picnic lunch. After that played billiard or pool with Regina. Played my best being the solid balls & won the game by way of Regina accidentally shot the 8 ball, however played the best of my ability. After that played Bubble Talk, a game similar to Apples to Apples only with funny pictures, with Patricia & Becky & won the game guessing the right captions for the pictures they submitted.

      Plus also when asked to sing the Theme song for Gilligans Island, sang the whole song then for bonus points named all the complete full names of every character on Gilligans Island. After that won the trivia tournament with my Team B team. Was praised by Bucket Listers & others from the Dude Ranch on winning the trivia tournament from the Gilligan thing. After that, mingled around with Bucket Listers & others there & then saw a magician that night. Final Day there did some last minute mingling & won the egg toss & did my best at the Bucket Throw then said my farewells to Bucket Listers & others that I met there. Plus got one gift from Jaime the one that helped me off the horse. Overall a time I will never forget & my thanks to Melinda & other Bucket Listers & all the others I met at the Pinegrove Dude Ranch.

  • Regina

    Mindy I was checking this place out some more and saw the various restaurants. Are they allowing us to pick which one's we want to eat at or are they restricting us as part of a package deal? Thanks

    November 3, 2013

    • Melinda ".

      While they technically have 5 restaurants, not all are open at the same time. We usually eat breakfast and dinner in the main dining room and lunch there is a choice of three stations. Anything that is open you will have access to. :)
