That was so fun. But, I missed out on some great caching with some fun people. Will have to really think about it for this year.

I really want to hit this event for several reasons, but mainly because I haven't been to an event before, and I love the park, want to meet cachers. Can't wait to go...

We will be at the Fall Picnic this year, but we will be staying in cabin 5 this year.

 

I'll still take care of the camp map for the event and T-Bird, I will make sure to mark your site so everyone know which one to stop by for a cold one! :)

I checked into reservations and it seems that reservations cannot be made this far in advance. I will keep you posted though......

If your wanting a cabin you can. There is 13 regular cabins and 1 ADA cabin and as of last night there is only 5 regs and the ADA cabin left.

 

We have cabin 5(01) :)

I checked reservations today. It looks like electric loop b sites are filling up. What is the loop that the Geocachers are going to be on so I can make my reservation? Loop A sites in the electric looks like they are filling up also.

And make sure that the toaster is washed and waxed, so when people come to log it she looks pretty!

WHAT A CABIN?? You have got to be kiddin me the 501 gang is going to be in a cabin! I thought last year after we took you out night caching in the rain and you slid down the steep hill and almost into the river that we had made you into a real cacher. I guess not! HEY JEREMY if you can hear me we need to change 501 Gang's name to 501 GIRLS. :):laughing::D

I'm at site #92. Can't wait! Although I'll be visiting the park in the next couple months, it'll be for just one cache. I'll save the rest for September!

We were going to do a cabin but then saw the no dogs clause.

 

So at least Baloo will be there, still trying to talk BD into tent camping before making reservations.

There will be no fun for us until this is the best Fall Picnic ever.

As you can probably tell the planning team had a great time this weekend at McCormick's Creek. We were there for some rest and relaxation, retreat style. In spite of all the relaxing, we did manage to get some picnic planning in.

 

Mark and I have booked campsite #78 in Loop A. Don't tell anyone, but we also booked a room at the Canyon Inn. Its your guess where we will be staying or where our kids will be staying if they come his year.

 

In looking at the campsite map, a lot of sites are already spoken for. All the studio rooms are already reserved at the Canyon Inn. There were still queen, double and twin rooms still available. Didn't check on the cabins.

 

McCormicks' Creek is absolutely beautiful! This will be another great picnic.

P.S. Be warned, you can't believe everything you see in pictures. There are illusions everywhere.

I would ask you to help spit-shine the toaster but I'm afraid you would just spit on it. :D:):laughing:

There really ARE plenty of campsites available. When registering for a campsite, if you select "tent" it appears the campground is getting full. If you select "Pop-Up" it appears there are plenty of spaces available. Campground management was contacted to clarify. The sites shown under "tent" have less gravel and are the best sites to set up a tent. Those pitching a tent are welcome to select either site designated for tents or campers.

 

McCormick's Creek Park rocks!

Weird, isn't it? It took Alicia, t-bird and I the longest time to figure out what was going on. It's why t-bird kept saying that most were taken but Alicia and I kept saying "no - there aren't any reserved yet!" t-bird was choosing tent and of course Lakedawgs and I were choosing campers!

So what site is the Hotel Schmeni parking at for the Fall Picnic weekend?

Oh! That reminds me. I was down there last week scouting out the campground. I have some photos of some of the campsites if someone needs to see. (By no means do I have all of them.) But, they're only from loop A. (IDNR kicked me out of Loop B.)

If you plan to be anywhere near the 85-90 compound beware of loud noises late into the night. :unsure::ph34r::(:wacko:

 

I have #85 where the Jack flows freely!

Thanks for doing this but when you look at the map make sure you do NOT select tent because it will show as reserved.

 

Loop A 17, 22, 77-79, 85-90, and 92 are the only sites reserved. All are reserved by Geocachers

 

As I said before "If you plan to be anywhere near the 85-90 compound beware of loud noises late into the night."

 

You do a great job with this every year.

Thanks t_bird!

 

There's 12 sites taken but I only have names for 8, so if anyone knows who the other 4 campers are, please let me know and I'll update the map.

I booked that whole inner circle (excepting for Lakedawg's real estate). You have mine & t-bird's site already listed. BigMamaK is in site 88 and Coolhipwithit is in site #86. For the time being, site #89 will be a question mark until I decide what to do with it.

Just reserved Cabin #4 for Friday night (Pete doesn't camp anymore :) )

 

Wasn't there a picture posted of Pete in a skirt at one time??? Was that about the time he gave up camping? :) ? ;) ?

Well we tried to get a cabin but they are all reserved. Not sure what we will do. The new baby (boy by the way) will be several weeks old and I don't think we want to tent camp with him at that age. If somebody heres of someone who ends up not using there cabin we will take it and pay them what they paid for it.
