Actually, no. By the time it was getting late enough for a fire, I was already too far gone to be driving anywhere.

Thats the problem with staying in town. If I go out to the KOA for the evening fire, I can't have anything to drink ('cuz I have to drive back to town). If I stay in town and have a few, I can't drive out to the KOA.

Next year, how about we all stay in town and just set a bar on fire for the night?

Cabins were all gone by the time I was certain I could go. 4 months in advance! Can't camp as I need electricity to sleep. I have no tent, no camper. If I could have gotten one of their cabins, I would have been fine with staying out there. I checked into renting a small pop-up but it was going to cost more than just getting a motel room.

I'm hoping to come back out next year with the vehicle better prepared and something for staying at the KOA. I should be able to find a pop-up camper or something by then.

All the picture threads are killing me! I wish I could have made it but due to some jobs that came up I wasn't able to.

I just want to say "thank you" again to everyone for their help getting my junk rolling for two days worth of "testing!"

Rande, PM me about the electricity need sometime. I think I might be able to help.
