Its only a handful more days! 

As always, you don't have to RSVP to come, but if you think you are, or sure you are, or think you might, its a great help to let us know here as we start getting ready. 

We have called on the pig, we'll call on that again in a couple weeks to confirm. Monday we'll call and order the large plastic box with the flip down seat to be strategically located in da trees.

We have limited space for camping right here which is first come first serve. I need to hear from a couple people yet to know if we have room yet for any more R.V.'s. There is room for several tent campers.

I got home today to find a note on the desk saying that we have reservations at Harrison's finest motel for August 1 and 2. Since we will already be in town, we might as well attend the pig roast. ;D

Hi Jeff,

Its been a long tome since i was here.  It is good to be back!  I don't know if you saw my post in the travel section.  If you did me and the wife may be going to northern Pennsylvania before we go to Virginia.  If we do, that will put us on I-80 in Indiana on the 1st or 2nd.  How far off of I-80 are you.  If it is not too far we may swing up for some Pig on our way from Alaska.

I would have to guess it being about 4 and a half hours or less.  But I'm not sure. :-\

Jeff,

I need to work a few things out......but hopefully we can attend.  I won't add mine to the total just yet, but it might be an additional 6.
