    Obx,

    You should have seen our Mystic Rally a few years ago....we had a projector on the side of my PU and the NFL Sunday ticket being projected....even the big Class A's were jealous....nothing like a campfire and some football! Go Patriots!!

    I know I said I would bring the fire pit, I just went out to get it and it's buried so deep in the shed I'd rather not dig it out if someone else was able to bring one, but will if nobody can. We're going out for a bit tonight but will dig it out tomorrow if I need to.


    That being said I also have the Camp Chef Gas Fire Ring like the one PopUpSteve has and wouldn't mind sharing. I haven't yet used it other then 20 minutes the other day to try it out, and man it does kick out some heat. I remember Steve hosting the entire group with his at Big Meadows and think we all found it comfortable.


    Either way let me know if I should dig out the other fire pit.

    Ok, so just got back from shopping! Camper is all stocked with grub, snacks, drinks, and of course... Cookies and grilled cheese stuff! This year though, I remembered bowls, and spoons! (Thanks for saving my pot luck last year Mike!) stopped to gas up on the way home too! Ok the 8am ferry across from Orient Point and should be to the CG by noon!

    G2G now, eat dinner, and pack my clothes!

    It's a beautiful morning! I have the block's hang tags, tell the gate keeper you're with the portal rally and he will let you right in. Site 54 is reserved for obx since that site has a short reservation to Sunday.

    In Salem, just made a quick stop a Walgreens, though not for anything inside... I'll explain later.

    Swung by the car wash and will be to the CG in a few minutes.

    What a beautiful day for a drive. Left the house at about 615am got on an 8am ferry from Orient to New London. Took the "scenic" ride (more so than I95) up to 90, then turned East into Salem.

    Since I was passing it, I stopped at the real Gallows Hill.

    Though none of the accused were hanged from a Gallows, but rather trees just outside Salem's village on the top of a knoll now occupied by a Walgreens between Pope and Proctor streets, at Bridge (Boston) street. That was cool, just to know that so much history occurred right were I had stood.

    A short cruise through town, led me to a car wash, anyone who knows me knows I can't show up in dirty car! Then, onto Winter Island. Set up took just a few minutes.

    After, I scouted out the grounds, and overloaded my Instagram and twitter accounts haha
