I like bananas and muffins, but 800 miles one way by myself is going to be tough to bring much in the way of food. Are there deli/bakery facilities close?

Last year, I stocked up at a grocery store right across the river.

Brian - I'm happy to bring the Projector, DVD Player, Receiver...and I'll bring better speakers this year.

Jerry - Can you bring the screen again?

Should we have this list on here so people can see what is needed or how should we go about that? That way things could be addressed as needed and we can see what is still needed.
Maybe Doran, Jason or Gregg (with administrator access) could set up a spreadsheet with things needed and they could be checked off as fulfilled? We are running out of time and this could take some burden off Brian. Also we could list how many or how much of each we have. I have both a screen house and canopy but dont want to bring and set up if not needed, but I certainly will.

I'll be bringing some firewood but I dont know that it will be enough for fires friday and Saturday night but right now, just thrown into the back of my truck, it covers about 1/2 the 8' box. As long as they have some to buy, we should be good.

Doran, did you find a good grocery store? Where about? The one I went to was kinda crappy... probably 3-4 blocks north of the bridge and 1-2 blocks off the main drag.  I was anxious to get to our site so didnt feel like dragging a boat thru town. Dragged my skeg leaving their parking lot.
Barb, if nothing else, you could get there and get settled then go over with someone that knows where stuff is. I may do that too. Its just accross the river.

The count is irrelevant to me and my crew.  Lawson is on the road as we toy around on the internet, driving to Phoenix from Glencoe, MN to pick up his CV-23 and me.  We should be arriving Red Wing Thursday and look forward to cruising the river, watching the barges come and go, and chatting with a bunch of friends I/we get to see only once a year. He will be logging over 4000 miles to make the show.  It would have been very simple to say we just can't make it.  He/we are making it happen for us.  I hope everyone else on this board can someday come to the annual meet. Life is short .... play as much as you can!  ;D

This event is yearly MUST SEE for me.
No kidding..I guess I didnt know Lawson was from up here. What a trooper! So he has never seen his "new" boat in person? Cool!
Are you then flying back?

Thanks Ross.  I plan to pull in around noon on Thursday and hope to get settled in pretty quickly.  I have to pick up a friend that is flying up there at the minn\st. paul airport at 6:30 that same evening.  I am not bringing much in the way of camping/survival equipment because on Sunday we are heading up to the north shore to spend the week and camping is not on the agenda, but golf is. (Gotta have room for the clubs).  So I will have to drop Burnin Daylight at the campground and head out again anyway and will probably try to pick up some pre-packaged deli items on the way back.  Anyone know how long the drive is from the campground to the airport in Thursday evening traffic??

Barb - If you need hotel recommendations in IA...let me know.  Des Moines is as good a place as any to stop.  Ames would work too.  If you pass Ames though...plan on another 100 miles before a decent stop (Clear Lake, IA) comes again.

Ross - I think it was Econofoods?  Yeah, couple blocks away from the bridge in the downtown area.  Best Black & Bleu burgers I've ever had came from there last year.  I grew up in Winthrop, MN...so we had to drive to a town that had an Econofoods!  (So it feels like 'home' to me.)

Econofoods....that sounds too good for the one I was in, but maybe?

Barb, the drive to the airport should feel short after sitting behind the wheel for 800 miles!  :D
Some "techy" should be able to post a route to and from the airport with drive time. That wouldnt be me.  :o

Thursday traffic going in the north direction should not be that bad. Most people heading south at that time.

I would plan on a hour, maybe less if what Red said about your driving of Brunin Daylight is true.

1) Paper plates, cups, napkins, etc. (Paper is best as it can be burned).
2) Plastic cutlery
3) Table cloths or coverings with clips for the wind
4) Lawn Chairs
5) Tiki Torches / Citronella Candles
6) Projector and screen for kids movies
7) Awnings / Tents / Sun Screens, etc for shade and rain protection
8 ) Firewood - (or money to purchase wood. there is fire wood available at the campground for a fee.)
9) General tool kit, spot lights, backup up fuel cans, emergency gear.
10 ) Coolers with bottled water / beverages
11) 2 turkey fryers with propane and frying oil

Brian,
I will have a turkey fryer, two 3 gal bottles of water for coffee, a small first aid kit, tool box, fire wood, two table cloths, spot light, & fuel can.
Kelly will be making a vegetarian pasta salad to share at the Saturday meal. 
Let me know if you can think of anything else.

Conner is going to Tenn for the week, he will not be attending. Green has been dry-docked all season and Bloodline is completely disassembled. I'll be at the campground before 5pm on Saturday for the evening and plan to mooch a ride or two after dinner!

Thanks Greg.  I had alread googled the address for the airport and put it in as a favorite in my little buddy Tom Tom.  He should guide me there, don't know which route he will advise me to take but I'm sure I can follow it.

Doran, I found a hotel on I-35 in Clive Iowa just south of Des Moines. Programmed that address in also and is 7hrs and 45 min drive from my house. That time doesn't include stops for fuel, food, bathroom, etc.  I usually don't stop very much when I travel.

I got everything packed up today, and tomorrow morning I have an appointment with Olered to check out the wheel bearings and hubs on my boat trailer, and will head out on Wed. morning around 8.

Please try to talk Red into comming without a boat.

Barb
Route didn't show up on link I posted.
Taking Hwy.61 is your best bet,  if you take Googles route segestion you'll go the Wis. side, which is a nice senic drive ... BUT you want to make it FAST !

Clive is a nice suburb.  Cracker Barrel restaurant is nice, Granite City is a good chain up here, Machine Shed is good comfort food, etc.  You'll be less than 3 miles from me...so I'm sure we'll see you on I-35 on Thursday.  Let me know if you need anything, pm'ing you my cell.

Have a great trip!

Doran I will contact you when I get there, maybe we can caravan on up together on Thursday.  Thanks for the info.

OleRed knows he can drive Burnin Daylight. When he gets close to her on the water I have to pull the keys or the kill switch to get him out of the drivers seat so I can drive.  He is pretty much tied up with that stroker right now and not much else is going to get in his way of figuring that thing out. I promised him I would e-mail pics daily if I could.

Hey Brian, you were wanting a count on Thursday arrivals.  Unless my boss derails my plans, Nancy and I should be there Thursday also.

Thanks,

Terry

Does anyone have a source for sweet corn again this year?

I'll chip in on the cost

I'm passing through Iowa isn't there a lot of corn grown there.  How many ears are needed?
