Jeff -
Awesome you can make it.  I'll be taking up one of those camping spots, too.  My kids have tried backyard camping twice this year and never made it through the night.  Maybe this time they'll stay in the tent because I'll be with them.

We will be unable to attend the event this year, we have been dealing with a situation this week with our oldest son that unfortunately will require us to stay home and resolve.  A-Z camper was nice enough to allow us to use our rental anytime this summer, so we will be planning a trip probable in July.  Hope you all have a great time.

Joe -
I'm really sorry to hear that.  Family first! 
Sounds like A-Z was good to you ... come on out when you can & let me know - I'm only 20 minutes from the nearest ramp.  We can have a mini-meet.

Hey guys, I hate to say it but life's great timing has reared it's ugly head and my wife came down with a nasty cold pretty much yesterday and the thought of taking care of the boys (5, 3 and 2) is overwhelming for her and both of our parents are either sick as well or have other plans so they're out as far as helping.

I'm going to have to bow out as well. It kills me to say it. I've been looking forward to this meet since the first day it was announced.

I'll make the Red Wing meet for sure and can't wait to meet you guys in the future.

Sorry.  :(

Josh,

If you are next to me I have a 9 yr old girl and a 4 yr old boy, we can keep 'em occupied if you want to go.  Kids are no problem

Josh,

Now you've got me thinkin'.... Wonder if taking my 5 and 3 year old would work if she would be well enough to watch the baby... Hmm. It's a huge stretch but maybe all hope is not lost!  I'll let you all know since we are neighbors on the campsite. If you're still leaving at one that gives me a little time to play with.

Worse comes to worse I may take the boat out this afternoon as at least one of them will be napping.

Josh - my daughter is 5 and would love a playmate.  Only you know what's best.  If you can't make it, we will miss having you out here.

Barb, did you end up suffering much damage from the storm? Crappy timing on that one for you and Red for sure!

Our back-up plan if it goes bad is to hit the waterpark for a day and wear them out.

However They've been camping since they were born and love the water and the boat, we'll be good.

I hope you go for it. Let me know your plan, if you don't go I might see if my sister-in-law can grab your site next to mine.

I've got a decent size shade tent to pop up on the beach ... just so there's a place for anyone to get out of the sun if they need to.

(sigh) Well just talked to my wife and she's at the point of her cold/sore throat where it hurts to swallow. Looks like I'll be sitting this one out after all. You sister in law can have my site for sure. Just make sure to take lots of pics of the boats, etc. so those of us that desperately want to be there but can't for various reasons can live vicariously through you guys!!!

I'll still probably make a run this afternoon somewhere as I've still got the day off and another run (maybe MN river?) on Sunday.

When life gives you lemons right?

Have fun!

Did you negotiate any better rates at the lodge, last year I thought you had a discount, may try to come over this year...
