We just got a new canoe for the trip, Jim. Bought it in blue to match our Burro.

And we already have our reservations for next year.

Now I just need to get the hubby to get our bicycle built for two ready for the bike trail.

Hope the weather cooperates.

Our canoe is a fiberglass Mad River canoe in royal blue and made of royelex.

We have an aluminum one, but when we bought that one, we had to accommodate two children, so it is longer and wider and much heavier. So, as empty-nesters, we downsized our canoe. Our aluminum one is going to our son.

Sometime, I will post a picture of the whole rig: Burro, tug, and canoe, but since we live in Chicago, our use of the canoe will be limited for a few months. We stashed it away in the garage.

Hi, Lily and I are coming to Minnesota this year then on into Wisconsin, Michigan dropping down into Ohio before heading west for home.

I'm hopeful that you'll say the dates are JULY 6-8 as that's when we'd be in the area and could come.

I'll miss the gathering at Leech Lake near the Scamp factory as I can't leave home until the day the gathering ends and won't arrive in MN until June 26. I'll stop by the factory before touring the Nordland then on to southern MN and into WI.

Jim,
Sorry if I am stealing a march on you, but I thought that in case you did not make it back here quickly, the date needed to be posted.


Everyone else:

As listed in the camping report from the '06 Lanesboro meet, the date of next year's Lanesboro campout is Sept 21, 22,23, 2007. We had to go later, so that we could use the lower part of the Eagle Cliff campground to accommodate more participants

I need some information. What is the name of the campground? Cost per site and what is available on the site. I see this is #3. Where is #1 or #2? I am assuming #1 might be Leech Lake Campout. Is this one on a lake? Facilities available? Nancy-C

Nancy,

Scroll down on this rallie, get-together group until you find the 2006 Lanesboro postings. I think maybe a lot of your questions will be answered reading about the second meet. If that doesn't answer your questions maybe you could go back to the thread about the first meet.

This meet is way south for me so we haven't gone. This year they scheduled it for right before peak color in northern MN so I will probably stay north again to enjoy Northern Minnesota in its bug free glory.

Nancy in no mn

My questions are mostly answered. Sites 1-36 what is the cost? I mostly camp in Army Corp of Eng campgrounds at half price so $20 seems high but campground sounds beautiful. Thanks for responding. Nancy

Nancy-C,

The cost still listed on the Eagle Cliff website is $24 per night for water and electric. The campground is about 4 miles east of Lanesboro and is a beautiful site on the Root River. This is a canoeing and fishing paradise with a beautiful bike trail. The town of Lanesboro is just a delight, with great antique shops and neat small businesses. We especially liked the Lanesboro town museum, which even includes a baseball signed by both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig!

Kevin

(By the way, the #3 refers to the 3rd annual, rather than a sequence of camping events around the area.)

This rally is at the Eagle Cliff campground on the Root River near Lanesboro.
GPS coordinates are:
N43 44.807 W91 56.352

Their web site is:
http://www.eaglecliff-campground.com/

This will be the start of the fall colors in this area. There is a great paved bike trail to ride or hike from the campground to Lanesboro. Or, there are canoes and kayaks available for rent at the campground for on the Root river. Lanesboro is a must see.
http://www.lanesboro.com/

Nearby Rushford is also worth the trip to see the museum (free), and bike trail.

Hope this info helps!

Thanks guys for posting peoples answers.
All three events are or were at Eaglr Cliff campground.
It is VERY hard to find a place that has a lot to offer and will work with you to host such an event.
State and Federal campgrounds have no provisions for a group like this let alone to have us all in one area with out 60 class A parked in among us.

The first event took much time to find a host campground, If any one has a suggestion for year 4 , I will be all ears. I would like to keep it near the SE MN, SW WI, NE IA, NW Il location as we have had people from Chicago to westens Mn to Norther Wi at the first two events. But new scenery for 2008 mignt not be bad.

PM me with any comments you might have.

Best regards Jim & Jonell
