My gosh, Bret, a rough head count of 33 and it's only been 4, count 'em, four days. This may well be the huge event you've been dreaming of!

I think that every able-bodied person should show up so we can beat those Harley rider's record.

 

Surely we can do it this time!!!!!!

 

Quick! Somebody call Guinness! We have a record to set. (And somebody call the other Guinness for Six dog! LOL)

As official Promoters for the Moonshine event. We encourage everybody to go to this event. We made the four hour drive last year from Michigan and camped. The burgers at moonshine and the people that you get to hang out with are well worth the trip to this event. We will definately be making another weekend trip to Moonshine, IllANNOY.

So far, there have been 28 "Will Attends" posted. I know some people will be bringing others, but to break the record with 28 people, we'd need to eat almost 25.5 burgers apiece. We're going to need more people. :drama:

Heads up about Moonshine here.

 

There's an evening event in Fowler Park just south of Terre Haute. Now, I'm not sure how many of you know where Terre Haute is, but it's in a delightful state just to the east of IlliNOISE known as IndiANNER. There are a TON of caches in the Terre Haute area--drive by micros, nice long hikes, puzzles, etc. It's a great place to cache.

 

The name of the event? Moonshine Hangover of course! Hope to see you there!

Wolverine Warriors,

 

If memory serves, didn't you guys camp at Lincoln Park for the last Moonshine? How were the campgrounds? Did they take reservations? Was it nice?

 

Anabel & Brazilindy, Go-Purdue & Zugzwang, JPlus14, Mr. Schmeni and I camped at Hickory Holler. Nothing wrong with Hickory Holler, I was just hoping to find something a little more uh...modern. Hickory Holler's facilities were a pretty good distance from the campsites. (You had to drive there.) The privvy near the campground was uh...trying to be polite....unused for very long periods of time.

 

I'd LOVE to camp at Fowler. I LOVE Fowler. But, I looked it up on their website and they don't take reservations. (Which Bret has already said.) With it being Labor Day weekend, I am uncomfortable planning on camping at a place that is first come, first served. It could prove to be a long drive home!!

 

Thanks!!

The GONIL folks who went to Moonshine last year talked about it all year so I made the decision to head down that way this year. Gonna make it a camping vacation for my son and me. Neither of us can wait.

Jenischmeni, Lincoln Trail is a nice campground. I don't know if they take reservations, though. We live just a bit north of the park, I can find out pretty quickly for you.

Jenischmeni we did camp there last year and it is a nice state park we stayed in the Plainview Campground. It has showers and bathrooms real close plus playground equipment. I talked to the state park and they don't take reservations it is first come first serve only. I also asked if they could set aside a section for a group of people and they said usually they would try to help a group out but since it is a holiday weekend they can't set aside an area for us. We are planning on camping there if at all possible again this year.

Well, for pete's sake! Is it just me or is it weird that these campgrounds don't take reservations?

 

What if I was driving in from say North Dakota. With a big 'ol 5th wheel behind me? What if I keep trying all the campgrounds and they'll all full? Maybe I don't wish to stay in a WalMart parking lot!!!

 

BUT...thanks for the info. It's not YOUR fault! LOL

 

I'll figure something out. (And quickly hopefully!)

 

P.S. Great to see you again WW!!!!

Minus the fifth wheel I've had that happen a couple of times in Colorado when there's some event in the area. Had to drive 50 miles out of my way one night to find a campsite for a tent.

We signed up and are definitely looking forward to going... that'll be 3 that'll eat burgers, and one that'll probably just gorge on Cheerios. :) We might drag another person along, but I think between the three of us we can put away at least 6, maybe more! (And the baby might be ready for burgers by then, so that'd be another one!) :D

I haven't decided if t-shirts will be available at the event or not. For now they are available on the event website: GeoMoonshine.Com.

 

As for going Mega....it looks like we've got about 61 registered so far...so it'll take a few more before we get there. ;)

So if I buy the shirt off the website will you deliver it to me at the event and save me the shipping costs? :)

 

(and the digits are your AGE. Guess the mind reallty is the first to go. )

I just started the Atkins diet Monday, can I get the moonbugers without the buns?

Atkins is the only diet I've ever managed to lose weight with, 4 pounds already this week.

 

And I can't remember if I registered at that other sire or not, nor why I have to register there when I already posted a will attend on the cache page.

Good news! We are done chipping and sealing roads in the area! As a matter of fact when we were working down there I went in to get a grape soda. I told Helen that I was going to bring my kids back for the cachers get-together and she got so excited! She is looking forward to all of us coming down. She called us "a Nice Bunch of Folks"! Wonderful cold grape soda, too! :(

I loved the grape soda last year but they ran out before the event was over, hope they stock more this year, it was great.

I just got back from there...had a GREAT lunch! :huh:

 

Helen can't wait to see us all. She's pretty excited about the numbers, too! We're looking at about 230 or so right now.

 

LOTS of prizes at the event, thanks to a lot of very generous geocachers and a few very generous organizations. There's even going to be some really nice things for the kids.

 

And big kids! :(
