I think you're missing a group of us that are also coming through the Fibreglass RV forum that Bill E posted.... I'll be in campsite 5 with my two dogs (Molly (Pet) & Kei (service).... There are a few others that are signed up an their details are on the Fibreglass RV forum site instead of here.... I'll be there Thurs-Sun.... with my big (in this circumstance - 13' Boler).....

Thanks

Em, I right that the campground has coin showers?
For those that are worried about heat, One can use the 4 blanket system, As it gets colder you go deeper. ;)
If it is warmer, you use a sheet over the top and have softer bed. :D
Of coarse if you have a electric site a small heater works great.
Only have 5000 miles and 16 days of Teardrop use this year. This trip will add 900 miles and 4 days?

The showers at the park are free and they are open for the season.

The current weather bug forecast for Sheboygan goes like this:

Thursday 50% chance of rain with a high of 44 and low of 40
Friday partly sunny and a high of 50 and low of 40
Saturday 30% chance of rain and high of 50 with a low of 42
Sunday 30% chance of rain with a high of 50 and a low of 44

Two days ago Saturday was going to be sunny all day we will have to see how it changes as we get nearer to camping. I personally can't wait. Will get the heat going in the shelter as soon as possible. I will be in my site by mid afternoon on Thursday. Called the 8th Street Brew Haus yesterday and they are still expecting us at 6 PM. See all of you in just a few days.

Nikki, This is the first that I'm hearing about interest from another forum in joining our group. You of course are welcome and we look forward to meeting all of you. We will do our best to make the logistics work. I'm unfamiliar with your forum and have never been on it.

Welcome

We have just taken a big 6 trailer jump in attendance at our 10th year of "Cooler Near the Lake". A group of fiberglass (Scamps, etc.) have seen our gathering and organized their attendance on their forum and we would like to welcome them.

Bill E - Site 18 (2016 Scamp 13 Deluxe Birch w/front dinette)
Steve and Sharon (Fri-Sunday)
Nikki (and dogs Molly & Kai) (Thurs-Sun, CNO=Yes) - site 5 (13' Boler)
Marty & Sandy - Site 21 (1972 Boler glass camper)
Rick and Laura - site 104 (1976 Scamp 13')
Maud & Jeff - Site 22 (Thurs-Sun) (1985 13' Scamp)

Thanks to Nikki for making us aware of them and to Sherry K. for investigating and finding their forum.

See everyone starting in only 3 days.

When arriving at Kohler Andre State Park please stop by site 6 and see Cheri. For those of you who are new the cost of the shelter is $100 per day and I had made 50 commemorative buttons for the event. Just a few less than people who are now registered. Next year everyone please sign up on the TNTTT forum. Shared cost if all 32 trailers come will be $7.50. Cheri keeps track of all money as she says I just spend it foolishly and so can't have any. I believe the heated bathrooms opened last weekend and I am hoping that the park will continue to give us the shelter's keys at closing time on Thursday. Remember the parks wants no dogs in the shelter. They really like us and we need to keep it that way. In the past many people have bought and donated fire wood purchased from the park. This is a park fund raiser and the group appreciates those who contribute as does the park.

:vroom:

On a sadder note. I was born with 3 uncles and 3 aunts. My aunts are all gone and my last remaining uncle (93) is now under hospice care and in a coma. Cheri and I may need to drive to La Crosse at sometime this week. Should it occur during "Cooler" Steve (site 12) has agreed to act as the host. It is much appreciated Steve. Please give him your cooperation. Update: My uncle just passed away.

First of all, Gary and Cheri---I'm sorry to hear of your family member's passing. Hugs to you.

In case it hasn't been given out yet, site 88 is now available as Bob and I won't be able to make it this year. I've been having lower back problems and as of 2 weeks ago, it finally imploded----lower right SI joint out of whack, little sleep and hobbling bent over in pain. Been seen by my doc at the Tomah VA Clinic, Xrays, meds, physical therapy. Just got back from another PT session today, I'm wearing some little battery operated gizmo with steroid medication. Feel better, but don't think I can handle the camping trip.

Was so looking forward to it too. Anyways, you all have a good time, hopefully the weather will be nice and see you next year!
