um,,,,i could tell you,,,but then i'd,,, oh wait,,, that won't work,,,,

ok i have been torn,,,yes torn i tell you,,,as to whether or not to disclose the true nature of" monkey butter" but with the advent of this infernal comptuer net work,,,i'm sure someone will do a search so i might as well come clean.

monkey butter is a yummy concoction of banana, pineapple, and coconut, along with other tropical fruits that is mushed and cooked and canned for use as a spred on toast, p and j sammiches and the like. think of it as a very tropical applebutter.

Do you have to get the monkey to peel the bananas? And then you mash the whole thing with your feet?

Autumn and I just reserved site 120. She'll be preparing her infamous macaroni salad (I don't like canned tuna.)

Well do you at least let monky butter ferment a bit so it has an alcohol content going for it?

awsome jim and autumn !!!!

no the monkey butter isn't fermented,,,,though there may have been other fermentation products that were involved in the formulation of said monkey butter.

heres an idea.

way to late to do much with this for our event,,,but maybe next year?

would be cool if we could have a egg camper rodeo.

we could have judged events such as hooking up the trailer and getting under way. would be judged on speed, safety, and maybe even style.

one on parking on site and setting up your camp site, again speed safety and style.

maybe a backing up weave course,

we could have saftey inspections, trailer weighing, maint. tips and classes, perhaps put on by a trailer dealership or manufacture.

of course there would be site and trailer decorating contests.

not sure what all we could do, but i see it as a way for old timers to refresh knowledge, new commers to learn, everyone to have fun, a dealer or manufacture may want to be there to learn what our concerns are and how to improve their product and service.
maybe the dnr could do a presentation on state parks, or state police on towing safety. theres no limit to what we could do.
what do you think? should we discuss this more ? or is this one of weird johnnies pipe dreams?

I'd just rather tell others how to do that stuff. That way I wouldn't embarrass myself. As for that infamous macaroni salad, infamous has a negative connotation. I'd rather have FAMOUS macaroni salad. Maybe you could re-educate your wife?

I remember a neat part of our first rally was having some veterans campers talk about greasing bearings and checking brakes. Doesn't sound exciting but it was a good session with us all sitting in a big circle in lawn chairs. Maybe there could be some sharing time on topics to be determined.

Sitting aroung a campfire will give folks a good chance to discuss future ideas. We have already found a topic we all agree on for these rallies. Food!

Was a little iffy on goat, and not all that keen on trying buttered monkey, BBQ monkey maybe, who can resist a good BBQ sauce?

It may well be that we will come up with some demonstrations, informative speakers or events that people will like, and that with a year to plan can be implemented. Or there may be a location for next year that will have some festival or event that would be of interest.

I'm one lazy camper, I read, eat, maybe swim if I'm hot, sit around campfire, might play cards, drink a little. My idea of a big activity is taking the dog for a walk all the way to the park entrance with DW or going to get ice cream.

It's only "infamous" to me. Others who partake of the canned tuna, pasta, mixture like it. I'd rather gargle rusty razor blades than to try to "re-educate" my wife.

John, I have been looking at my site map and I think we have a few more, I have been counting each time someone makes a post and I show trailers on sites 60,61,62,120 and 122.

I'd be happy to go into all the gory details of just how I chose my fabrics and decor, including the pros and cons of kiwi green as opposed to lime green...... I'm sure that it will give the guys a good looong nap (LOL).

But in all seriousness, I think a rodeo type gathering would be really interesting and fun!!

As far as food, I'm ready and willing to fill in with additionals as needed. And I'm still working on getting all my little gummy bears into a drunken stupor. Is someone bringing plates and silverware or are we all supplying our own?
