    Listen. Chris will never tell you this. But if he tells you how he does it he will have to kill you.

    SITES ARE STILL AVAILABLE!

    I have updated the attendee & Potluck lists to reflect the latest changes and additions.

    For any new visitors to the park, there is a Shop just before the CG that builds sheds and other outdoor buildings. They sell scrap wood there for firewood.

    We will be up mid-afternoon Friday, See you then!

    We are packed, just have to hook up and will be on our way first thing in the morning. As we are limited in what vegetables and meats we can bring across the border, are there any towns close by where we can do some shopping or should we stop at towns along the way to stock up?

    It will be a straight 5hr+ run for us and the plan is to have TV dinners for Thursday night and grocery shop early Friday if anything is close, otherwise we will have to stop along the way and that blows a a good hour plus. Don't want to arrive too late if at all possible.

    There is a grocery store not too far...I went last year, wish I could remember exactly where it was...I believe the directions were posted in the dish washing station in the "S"loop. Someone will know. Regardless there is one close so you should be OK. :)

    Thanks for the reply.
    Did some Googling, seems to be an IGA in south Londonderry. We are familiar with that chain so should be OK.

    In all of our years going to Winhall Brook, we have never been to the "downtown".
    I guess we will have to drive past the CG road for once.

    Storm Trooper Home is where you park it!

    See you there tomorrow Alex.
    We are heading there in the morning...

    This is really set up to be beautiful weather this weekend - no rain, warmer than usual. The leaves here (further North) are just under peak, so the foliage is shaping up for a great year.

    We plan to leave after lunch and should arrive mid-afternoon. If anyone forgot something and we can help, give us a shout before 12:00. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    I am sorry I missed it guys. But as you know, I was between pop ups. Just picked up my HW296 and will be going Columbus day for the maiden voyage.

    Sounds like it was a good time. I will consider it next year if you plan another New England trip.

    Vin.

    Tombiasi, there is 1 outlet at the pavilion. Bring a power strip if you have one, just a thought!

    Home Safe and Sound. Thanks to Mercman for hosting the rally. Great to see RetiredAlex and his DW again all the way from Ontario. Also met some new other portal members. Thanks to Shelmily for importing some meat for me form Pennsylvania. Pot luck had great food and great company. See ya'll next year.

    Thanks everyone for a great weekend, we couldn't have asked for better weather. Kudos to Mercman for pulling off another great rally! We were very jealous of the few campers staying on an extra day! See you at another campfire sometime in the future. [:)C]

    Thanks to Mercman for putting this together! This was our first trip to this park, and it won't be our last. Beautiful grounds, impeccably kept, and the company couldn't have been better. I didn't get to see/chat with those in the South loop as much as I would have hoped (I'm looking at you, Don aka "Witty").

    Our 14mo DS had a great time with Shelmily's daughters, thank you for tiring him out!

    Great to meet some new folks, and last minute entries, too.. Can't wait for the next one!

    This was our first rally and had a great time, and the potluck was awesome. Thanks to Mercman for putting this together and to all those that made us "newcomers" feel welcome. Sorry we missed the campfire gathering after the potluck, we realized how tired we were after dinner and turned in early, after spending the day following the kayakers. Looking forward to next year!!

    Home from a great weekend in the mountains of Vermont. Thanks mercman for setting this up. I had a great time and the potluck was delicious and large. I'm so glad I decided to go at the last minute. Already looking forward to next time.
    I also was glad to have met everyone....now I can put faces to names. Well thanks again and I really hope to see everyone again in the future.
