    No nor'easter's this year, I hope. [:O]

    Mike,

    Do we have a price yet? I noticed last years, but I don't know if it is the same. We will give you $$ this weekend.

    It's funny, the field sites (where we are) are much nicer then the sites facing the bay. In those site you may be facing the bay but it's like a parking lot or a work-site. You would think the field site would cost more.

    Steve,

    With your rig taking up so much space, there is a $5 charge for oversize campers. [:O]
