HOOSIER MAPLE SYRUP FESTIVAL

http://www.nationalmaplesyrupfestival.com/articles.asp?id=131

Looks kinda interesting I have e-mailed the owners to inquire about camping in the area. Vickie and I are seriously concidering this one despite it is 140+ miles from home.

Ya bet your bippy we are taking the waffle iron !!! :lol:

Talker with Tim Burton the owner and he says that his neighbor will let us camp right there also. The downside is no or limited electric hook ups so knowing the state park is that close makes it a better choice unless it's 78 and Sunny.

Fat Chance !!!!

Any other brave souls ??????

We always stop at Henryville at Scheulers restaurant on the way to Glasgow. Ummm ummmm good food at reasonable prices. How come all the good festivals are 150 miles away :R

This one looks good also maybe a little less commercial and a little more down home. :thinking:

The Deepest spot in Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes is 1,333 feet or about 222 fathoms. This profound depth could easily contain the entire 1,250' Empire State Building, even with a 50-foot-tall King Kong perched atop.

Better stock up if prices are good....Just read in the sunday paper this morning that maple syrup in Vermont homemade is going for $50-60 a bottle. (I'm thinking it was a gallon) but still....
We've made it ourselves a couple of winters, nothing beats the homemade syrup. :thumbsup:

Starting to look like a day trip. Weather is still iffy . I have the head cold from Hell and Vickie is shell shocked about loosing her job of 15 years .

We need a get away ! The long term weather forcast shows this weekend better than next. I wish I had an answer but I just don't. Starting to look like 14th if I can get well.

Whether you go or not get well soon Bob, Both the girls have been very sick this week with a very bad virus the sickest I have seen them in a long time and ever as far as the little one goes she wouldn't even look at a lollypop much less eat or drink at all until today. Both are on the mend now thank god! We might make a day of it if all are well enough. If not we will boil our own off this weekend.
