Sounds like fun. I am not sure about camping but a day trip would be fun.

We should make it for part of the event. We have a commitment Friday night, so we won't be camping.

I am planning on being there for most of Saturday. Deanne also added a TB race the list of activities.

We're going. Working on coming up with a fun Geo-Trivia game as well to contribute to activities. Most likely camping overnight.

Is anyone going to take a kayak? There is a cache that is on an island near the event. Was wondering if anyone was going to try for it or not?

I'd love to go but I'm going to be in Ohio with my lovely bride -- watching her run 26.2 miles that day.

Jeff and I will be there for the day and dinner on Saturday. We are participating in the bake off, with a little help from my geomom. Georeyna, we don't have a kayak, but we have a little aluminum boat we might bring. Maybe Jeff can do a shuttle from the island and back. HA!

Anyone know what the water level is like? in some of the sat images, it looks like you can walk to the island cache.

They have been pulling the lake down all summer, but it appears not to be too bad. About 1.5 feet below max.

So we can walk to it? Bring the kayak just in case?

I just checked Blue Bell's website. No weekend tours. Did TGCA arrange something special?

I checked one of the Island Caches and one is a no go, been missing forever. The other is available as of this writing and both were placed in 2001...great for Jasmer Calendar!

Looking forward to everything!!

I thought I'd posted this earlier. Anyone camping Friday night? We'd like to share a site.

Evidently the park is sold out of everything except standard sites at this point, but they do still have standard camp sites available.

Planning on camping Friday and Saturday. Making reservations monday. Anyone know the park well enough to identify a area to request sites so we are clustered together? The guy also said we could it it by last name, but i don't know most of you all's name. :)
