You make it sound like so much work, Slow. The last three outings for me I went to the deli, bought a few days worth of salads and sandwiches and stuffed um into an ice chest. Left Coleman at home and called it good.

But Cliff is coming with me for this one and he likes to cook so I'm sure Coleman and Dutch will be along for the trip. And the White Mountain will surely tag along. Gotta have ice cream for the dump cake, ya know.

I'm looking forward to a great event. Nice and laid back.

Just to avoid confusion, there is a New Forks Lake Camp Ground, and a New Forks Lake Group Campsite. They are across the main road from each other and there is a sign saying group site. The group site will be on the left, and use to be right near the big dumpsters.

I keep seeing these notifications and have a bad itch to make this happen after all...

Is there a group site? if so is there room for another teardrop? what would I be looking at fees wise? I know super late notice, wasn't expecting to be able to and probably shouldn't but I might be able to make it happen and the wanderlust is strong this week.

Paul,

I can only answer a couple of your questions.
Yes, its a group site, with plenty of room for one more rig.
Cost, I don't know. Part of it depend on how many rigs split the fee for the campground.
If past years is an indicator, it will be around $20, give or take a few.
Maybe we will see you this weekend. :thumbsup: :beer:

Mike, If you want to make DO cooking easy, use the Dinwiddie method. Works for any size oven. Place 1 ring of coals touching all the way around the far lip of the top. Put another ring just under the bottom edge all the way around. If you want to brown the top, put a couple coals in the middle of the lid. Super easy way to cook.

Good site for recipes too.

I'm making good progress toward getting there. Left Monday, in Loveland CO tonite. Estimated 6 hours of driving to go. I'll sleep in Thursday till folks start arriving.

Come early and beat the crowds :D

Is this place maintained? Should someone bring a weed eater?
I'll burn that bridge when I come to it.

Sounds like great camping weather to me. Looks like night time lows mid 40's Daytime highs mid to high 70's. Out of the heat like camping is supposed to be. I'm so jacked I'm leaving home a day early. Plan to spend Wednesday night at Craters of the Moon. Then on to Walk the Winds.

See ya'll soon! Oh! The White Mountain is a soakin'. Home cranked ice cream in the mountains. It doesn't get any better than that.

Really hope you can make it.
