Greetings From Key West, FL, The Only Warm Place in the USA
Hi, Everyone,

Yes, it's true. We are wasting away down here in Margaritaville.

Just got off the phone with Carol at the campground, and we are scheduled in on site 13. We arrive Thursday, June 11, leaving Monday morning, June 15th.

You know, I'd like to say "Let's go camping", but, we already are !

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Dennis & Marie

We just picked up a 1986 16 ft Saturn for weekend trips. Going out west that next week for 2 weeks or we would join in. I'll watch for post for a 2016 M&G and the wife and I will join in. I would like to find out more about the past company. We have a 36ft fifth wheel but sometimes its just too much for a close weekend trip.

Hi all.

We will bring,
finger foods TBD
Breakfast: Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Chopped green peppers, apple bread.
Supper: Rancho Beans W/hamburg, Rhubarb Cake/ whipped cream.
and 1 Bug Zapper.

JohnB 06-02-2015 09:58 PM

Hi Everyone,

It is getting close now. Seeing who can bring some things.

I see Jim is bringing some fire wood, we can use another wood supplier if we have one.

Canopies, my son's big white one we had last year was caught up in a wind storm 2 weeks ago so I do not have one to bring. Jim listed one, we can use one more.

I have the big burner stove and pot for the egg boil on Saturday morning. So this is set.

If you know what you are bringing for the pot luck and cracker barrel (finger foods) please list and I will add you to the list on the first post.

Time is getting close!! Can't wait. Been super busy this year and the R & R will be good along with seeing the Sunline group again.


JohnB 06-02-2015 10:10 PM

I had forgot to mention, the first 2 posts of this thread have all the info for the campout. I have updated the food and gear for those who have told me. And I will keep updating as new things come in. So check back as the time approaches.

Do not forget to bring your 2 eggs per person for the Saturday breakfast egg boil and some fixings breakfast items to share. I will bring the cooking bags and the cooking gear.
