I think I might try to make it. Think a Casita could sneak in among all you Scampers?
Joy, you might want to bring your long underwear, there just might be some snow way up there yet in June, Burrrrrrrrrr Nancy, what do you think............snow or not?

Karalyn,

Sure a Casita is welcome....we welcome everyone. When you make your reservations please let us know what site you'll be in, arrival/departure date, age and make of rig and where you are from. Nosey aren't we. Oh, and last name.

It is apt to be cold hopefully no snow. I just made an alternate itinerary as I was thinkig about going up the west side of MN as far a Int'l Falls through Virginia/Ely and on to Grand Marais. I've made the alternate itinerary with me going from SW MN diagonally to Grand Marais then over to Int'l Falls and down diagonally to SE MN before crossing into WI. Who knows I might even miss all of Northern MN if there is snow, I won't pull in snow. We'll see.

We've got 11 reservations as of right now. Karalyn you could make it 12.

Karalyn, There is another Casita registered so you won't be alone.

Joy, we are just joking about the snow. It would be really odd to have flurries in June. Cool weather yes. Fog, yes. I actually prefer June to July. I'll take June any day over July.

We stopped at Grand Marais on our shakedown cruise after picking up our Scamp in 2004. Very nice place!

Yep, that's the park and my best guess is we were in 152W, or there about. What a great area to visit, and we particularily liked visiting the Grand Portage. Sorry we can't join you guys, you will have a blast!

Yippee!!! Hooray!!!!

I WIN LUNCH.

We have 20 trailers registered.

Now while that's a great number, we can do better.


Look forward to seeing you at Grand Marais.

How many do we have so far?
We are in, and staying at 162W. Hope to get there Tues the 10th, and leave on Sun the 15th.
Is anyone going to Canada? We went and apply and rec'd our passports so we could see Canada too on this trip. 1st timers here in this area and we want to check out some of the sights.

Yeap, you've been on my list for quite some time.

We are currently up to 22 registered with me. There are a couple of gaps in the campsites and I will check with GM tomorrow to see if the sites are vacant or some of our folks. The campground has been good at putting us together so I would surmise that these sites are people who haven't contacted Nancy or I.

There's still about 4 months until the gathering so we think we'll get more attendees as the time gets closer.

As far as Canada goes, I'm going to take a day trip up to Grand Portage area and cross into Canada and then back. I was going to go into Canada when leaving Michigan in August but I've decided to turn for home. A nearly 3 month trip is long enough. Equating litres to gallons and any dollar conversion, gas in Canada has always been a good $1.00 higher. We are $3.23 here so BC is most likely $4.23. The $1.00 difference is my experience between California and British Columbia/Alberta. If gas is $4 or so by summer, I'm not willing to spend much time in Canada at $5 per gallon.

I stayed in that campground last May by myself, right by the water, and had a wonderful time. It was pretty cold even then - Lake Superior will do that. Well, it was cold until the smoke and hot air blasts from the Gunflint Trail wildfires pushed the temperature up to almost 90. And then back down to 55, and then back up to 90. I have nothing but admiration for the community, which pulled together in the face of a really awful disaster. Be sure to pack a radio, if you're up there - they have the most delightful community radio station, which performed heroically in keeping everyone aware of what was going on. It's hard to listen to that radio station, though, and not just up and move to the north shore...

Grand Marais is a neat little town, with a bunch of coffee shops and shopping and a really great co-op (translation: natural foods store, for you non-minnesotans). And the whole town is within walking distance of the campground, which is great because I bet parking is hard to find in the high season.

Right next to the campground is the North House Folk School, which is quite a big operation, and offers classes in everything from building your own log cabin to handcrafting your own sailboat or birch-bark boxes, to fly fishing. I so enjoyed the class I took. I would really suggest you look into it, if you're going to be up that way anyway:

So Laura,

When are you making your reservation??? I'll wait to hear from you.

You know we'll be there in mid-June so it'll be toasty compared to your stay in May
