For those of you who will be traveling from the north, going south on I-65....there is a lot of construction between Greenwood, mile marker 99 to just north of Edinburgh, mile marker 80. I highly recommend getting off before the Greenwood exit, and taking US 31 south to at least Taylorsville, mile marker 76. Then get back on I-65 and go south.

On your way back, if you choose to take I-65 north, there have been numerous multi-vehicle accidents just north of Edinburgh, mile marker 80, because people don't seem to really believe there is construction coming up. Slow down, take your time, and watch your rear view mirror......oh, you can't, you have a camper following you :lol:

Me, I'll take US 31 down thru Columbus, Indiana, and then take Indiana 7 south to Vernon, Indiana, turn right onto Indiana 3 to W State Road 256, turn west and the Hardy Lake State Park will be on your right. These are the roads less traveled nowadays. My map says it's only about 30 minutes longer, about 8 miles farther, but it's not taking into account the traffic jam on I-65.

Just a heads up, on May 13th the park entrance and annual pass fees will increase. Annual pass will go from $40 to $50. Looks like camping fees will also increase.

I am taking the easy way out and doing yet another disgusting meatloaf.'
this way I don't have to deal with leftovers

I will prepare some cocktail sausages in hot sauce for the wine and cheese party.

We will bring a tropical fruit salad (seems fitting)...also, we will bring along some extra farm-fresh brown eggs. If you would like some, stop by site 137

You better bring a lot of that stuff. I fished a little yesterday and had no success. No one I saw was having any luck. I not switching to vegetarian this week for sure.

Don't forget the Hot Buttered Rum....it's cool in the evenings down here. Been here since Tuesday.

Kurt, I won't be able to make it this weekend. If you know of anyone who needs a campsite, site 150 is available. I think it's too late to cancel so anyone can camp there. See you at the CRA.

Verna, so sorry you weren't able to attend. I hope all is well. The kids really missed seeing you. See you at the CRA!

Kurt/Dan, another fabulous gathering. Despite the power loss on Friday night and the off and on rain. :rainy:

You all may see Vickie (aka "the Mrs") on here soon. She's really inspired to get going on the big camper.

Gerry, the weather is something we need to talk about. With a little timing we pulled off the Wine & Cheese and the Pitch-in dinner with minimal stress and moisture.

BTW, the weather was perfect from Tuesday to Friday afternoon. We should have these things during the week. Oh wait, that only works for those some of us without those "pesky jobs" that get in the way.. 8)


We did have a great turnout though. It was good to see the large crowd at the Pitch-in. The food seemed extra good this time thanks to all of the great cooks.

The food was exceptionally tasty. I hope everyone shares their recipes on the Hoosier cookbook thread. (I think that's what it's called) Kurt are you able to share the link?

We had a great time!
