Well, I just discussed some plans with Carolyn, the family domestic engineer and activities planner. She proposed the following:

Friday evening baked beans and franks in a crock cooker. She will make enough for everyone. I guess Ken won't be there so just four of us. Robin - can you make something to go with it?

Saturday evening she said she could have frog eye salad and potato salad. Robin, if you bring the steaks I'm sure we can come up with somewhere to grill them. Unfortunately my grill is a propane fired unit that's too large to put in the van. If Ken can bring the bread we should be good to go.

Ken, your firedancer sounds like a good bet for "hanging around".

BTW - I plan to arrive at bout 4pm on Friday so Ken should already be there. Ken, pick out a good spot!

Robin. I think they close the campground office around 6pm when there's not much activity. You should have no trouble getting in touch with them in the morning.

WHERE ARE THE REST OF THE COLORADO EGG OWNERS??? Come on out of the woodwork. It's too early to put your camper in storage. Come on out and check out the fall colors.

Orlen, Sounds great! I will come up with something to go with friday night, green salad, bread? maybe even pick up some sweets ( I don't bake, so don't expect a home baked cake ) But Costco has great stuff .
Ewwww, frog eye? Yummy! I already like her! Now we just need others to join us, But if we're the only ones it will still be nice to get another weekend of camping in before the snow flys.







Ken looks like bread for you............. LOL. It's not that we don't think you can cook, ummm, ( PBand J guy) it's that you are gonna be busy, we don't want you to have to worry. So if you know about when you will be back on Saturday, we will have the grill ready to go.

Any steaks you guys prefer? At Costco today they had some great looking New Yorks? But will have to see what they have when I run in on friday. We will probably head out somewhere noon-ish maybe earlier and it only takes a couple of hours to get there, Hopefully I can find this place, the mapquest map lost me. Robin

Hmmm only Bread? At least I can also bring butter... :-)

Sometime you will have to ask my wife about my cooking skills - I do grilling though - its hard work flipping those steaks and burgers.....

Maybe I can find a nice pie for desert.....

This is so cool - I would be glad to contribute the the steak fund since those things are pretty expensive.

I've got a small propane grill that I'll bring - it may be a little small - its one of those with grill on one side and burner on the other - great for the two of us, don' t know about 5 of us. I'll leave it out on over the weekend and you all are welcome to use it.

Is there anything else we need?

Ken, bread and butter and a pie if you want will be great. You have so much going on, it will just be nice to have you join us. Looking forward to meeting the three of you, hopefully others as well. Robin

Well, we did it! Actually just 3 egg's, 5 people. But it was fun! Had a wonderful time meeting Orlen, Carolyn, and Ken this weekend at the Golden Eagle campground (more later on the icky campground) LOL.......

Dh (Rod) and I arrived later than we had planned but it was easy to spot two cute eggs camped next to each other. No driving around forever looking for a poorly marked campsite. Orlen and Carolyn were there to greet us. Ken was at a meeting, but we got to meet him later in the evening when he returned. Enjoyed exploring each others egg's. Rod and I actually haven't seen inside of many fiberglass other that Casita's so it was fun to explore a (cute) Perris Pacer and a roomy Egg Camper. Saturday night over dinner we got some plans made for a rally/get together for June next year (stay tuned for info) Will be posting info as we get plans finalized. Wish others could have joined us but hopefully for the June get together more will be able to join the fun! Orlen is a wizard at everything (he fixed a electrical issue) that at least 10 other people had attempted and failed or made worse. Ken is the gadget master, he has some of the coolest camping gear. We all want his little fire pit......... no smoke, no smell, no mess, but a great little fire to sit by and enjoy (even in gale force winds) LOL. His grill is a cleaver campstove/grill combination that is a must have as well. Hopefully I can find the fire pit, cause that is so worth having. No more dragging wood. Loved hearing of all their adventures and great stories. Looking forward to a bigger egg gathering next summer. Hopefully everyone had a safe journey home.


As for the campground, well the view's are beautiful. The campground itself has seen better day's (let's say 40 years ago) it has potential but don't see it changing anytime soon. Would not recommend it to anyone, other than someone who wants a rutted, slopey, hookup mixup site! Even big rigs would have a heck of a time reaching all the hookup's without adding lot's of cords, hose's etc. since they are on different sides of the site? The picnic tables are the weirdessssssst things I have ever seen. Don't even know if I could explain them... LOL. All I can say is there is a redevelopment of the state park (to reopen soon) down the road going on, and it will put this campground to shame.

Again, wish more of you could have joined us, but look forward to you joining the June gathering. Robin

Yup we sure had a great time - Robyn's steaks were incredible - at least 2 inches thick!

Thanks so much for putting this together Robyn, attached is a picture of our "rally" - being as spread out as we were, and as little as our trailers are, it looks like a pretty big rally!

Looking forward to next years rally - I'm sure we will be ever bigger....

Hey all you Colorado egg owners. You missed a good one!

As Robin mentioned we had a lot of fun getting the trailers level and hooked up to the utilities. There were the technical discussions like "How many two by sixes should we put under this wheel?" and "Is this my water tap or does it belong to the guy parked on the other side of the tree stump?" I know we were in the foothills of the rockies but I don't think I saw one square foot of that campground that was level. And then there were the "one cheek" picnic tables. You sure weren't going to get both cheeks on that seat. They must have very skinny campers around there. The wood in the tables was so old it was petrified. And then there was the nails, screws, mending plates and thin sheet metal straps attempting to hold all that petrified wood together.

Anyway, once we were level, plumb and sort of connected to the utilities we had a chance to plot a spring rally. We need input -- more input. What do the rest of the folks in and around Colorado want? Where? When? Come on already. You can't all be in hibernation this early in the fall.

Robin, Rod and Ken. Carolyn and I had a good time.

I'll close with a picture as we escaped from the land of the sloping campsite.

But Orlen that big but is what gives you all that space inside. Love the roomyness of The Egg Camper.

LOL.................... those butt's wouldn't fit any better on the picnic tables then ours did. Honestly the not so wide seat was only half of it. It was more on how - where the seat was in porportion to the table. weird how they were made. The seat was kinda straight under the table top, you had to basically lay down and swing in. Kinda hard if you have long legs. If you where drunk you would never get out. LOL. Robin




Thank goodness, Ken isn't gonna post his 7:30 in the morning pic's! Are you Ken! LOL........ ( I started hiding when the camera came out.) Way to early!

Robyn - I sure thought long and hard about posting "Robyn in the morning" picture - but figured that I would like to attend another rally with you.... :-)

As far as the tables go - you all probably noticed I didn't dare sit on those things - I value my life...!

Later

Ken J.

Pam, You ought to have tried sitting at them! LOL They were just odd, odd, odd.




Ken, You better not post a pic of me in the am................ LOL. I figured I get your wife to distroy them for me Us girls have to stick together! No am pic's please! Rod cracked up when I noticed that you had the camera, I am sure the look on my face was classic early morning, ( oh Shoot, yeah right!) look. We noticed you sat in a chair rather than attempt that table. The tables were interesting to say the least. Robin

OK. Here it is. The picture of the infamous picnic table. I had to zoom in quite a bit so hope it isn't too fuzzy.

Notice that the seats are directly below the table top so you have to sit at an angle or lean way out. You can also see a giant splinter on the crosspiece at the right and the over length bracing between the table top and the end frames. Not as readily apparent are the large areas of rotted wood and the hardware and patch plates that have been installed over the years in an attempt to get just a few more years of service.

These things wouldn't even make good firewood.

Orlen, The picture doesn't show how awful they really were, LOL............ They actually don't look as bad as I thought they did in person (Orlen did you use a touch up program?) I guess you actually had to be there and sit at it to know how bad they were. Robin

perhaps beer or judicious use of alcohol helps or hurts ones ability to negotiate those benches?
