Things will get normal when people start acting normal.

Thanks Adam, this is perfect timing, since earlier in the month (September) several of us will be up on the Border doing the Challenge from Rainy to Superior!

So can this forum be used to promote a wing nite anywhere, or is it better to post in another thread?

I'd be interested in this and meeting some of you all.

Is it ok if some of us stay in campers. There are health issues involved.

Hey Ben,

I will double-check with them tomorrow, but I believe yes you can use a camper at this group camp. However, they do not allow electric usage for campers per the rules I see in the confirmation.

My camper has its own electric... haha. Thanks for checking Adam. It would just be another vehicle in the parking lot really.

So just wanting some specifics. Do we pay anything to camp? Any food provided or pot luck type times? Just not seeing much for specifics and would like a little more information

Usually do a potluck dinner on Saturday afternoon breakfast and lunches are on your own. Usually a donation box is set up to cover the camping costs.

1 for camping & potluck. Sounds like fun! Looking forward to meeting Mitch “Dicecupmaker” ‘s favorite group of people as well as admiring any of his leather goods you might happen to bring along. “We put the fun in dysfunctional.” See you in September!

I’d enjoy seeing that dice cup if you want to bring it! Yes he is missed by so many. He was a wonderful man to know & I enjoyed 6 very fun years with Mitch, including a Boundary Waters trip.

Would enjoy seeing that hatchet sheath, nctry! Sounds like he personalized it to you. He hand stitched everything & did leatherwork every day. It was also his stress reliever after working a 12 hour shift at the hospital. Glad you have that unique & functional item!
 
08/27/2022 04:09AM  
I actually shipped him my hatchet and he made two. He wasn’t sure which style I might like so he made two. I should have the one I chose with me. Also my can holder...
He has been a huge loss to many of us... and you as well. I hope you find yourself feeling welcome among us. Only thing that would keep me from coming is if my surgery is scheduled around then. I’m in pain that I never thought possible to endure. Been up all night... I’ll just say... the people you’ll meet are some of the best this world has to offer.

Tammy and I are planing on coming up for both nights.

Planning to arrive Friday and head north Sunday with BWCA plans still developing.
 
08/31/2022 12:17PM  
I have other stuff going on that weekend, would it be ok to just come hang out for a couple hours on Saturday? I'll even bring some wings! Would love to meet and talk to folks.

Thanks very much! I’m excited about meeting & spending time among members & seeing his most valued friends. That is, this group of people is who I know he really identified with. I love seeing things he made & will enjoy seeing your hatchet & coozie if your pain permits. I hope you will get relief from that! I could say that I hope you get good medication in the mean time, but let me close with a quote from Dicecupmaker:
“I’m not a Dr but I play one on TV.”

Cricket67: "I have other stuff going on that weekend, would it be ok to just come hang out for a couple hours on Saturday? I'll even bring some wings! Would love to meet and talk to folks." Absolutely! In the past a few people have just come for the afternoon. And wings for a wingnight is always A must! :)

Come one come all... we’re enjoying the barn today... there will be lots of bacon in the morning for campers tonight. Eggs and such too.

You could have put em in the for sale thread and mention you’d be there if interested. But a table like you suggest would be Adams call. Many of us can’t go anymore, you’d be in good company.
