Geocaching

Just learning Geochaching.....took me 4 times to find my first one; therefore, I am looking forward to learning how to use the GPS. As well, if anyone is willing to share info about GSAK I would really appreciate it as I am trying to learn it myself. I have a prememium membership to Geocaching.com but unsure all the benefits it provides to me. In the mist of figuring out pocket queries, POI, etc. Looking forward to it...

I will be camping in St.Malo during the 1st week of August, so I will hide a few more, but outside the park boundaries. Recent Provincial Park regulations (red tape) has made geocaching hiding in the park very cumbersome.

Wow does not take much to get you excited Grant.

I prefer to boondock and run my LED's from my solar system. Glad the site switch worked out for you.

Rally schedule

Great to see all the new participants signing up, we now have over 30 trailers registered! Also, the rally schedule has been added to the very first post in this thread, which should make it easier to locate when needed.
Vacation is over and now back to the real world for me... thanks again Rick for the many hours of work on this forum and the rally.

It can't be as dirty as it was at last years rally. At least we had a free trailer wash rain on the way home last year.

Pot Luck Supper

I have been asked by one our campers that will attend this years rally as to how a Pot Luck Supper works.

Well here it is:

Bring something that will not spoil or something you can make at your site before coming for supper. Basicly we never know whats for supper till everyone gets there with their dish.

Please also bring your own chair, cup and plate and cutlery Paper plates and plastic cutlery works best if you dont want to do dishes.

That pretty well sums it up Rick. There was a nice variety at last years rally, here are some examples from year one:

Pasta salad
Crackers and cheese
Baked ham
Meatballs
Buns, bread
Pickles and cheese
Salad
Baked beans
Snacks, chips
Fruit, watermelon

I know I'm missing some food items but that is a general breakdown. For those who have electrical spots I have found a crock pot to be very handy, not only for cooking but also for transporting and serving food.

Hope that helps and please feel free to ask Rick or myself any questions that you may have.

Meet & Greet and Potluck location

I spoke with the Resource Officers at St Malo park this weekend and they are organizing a meeting area for our Meet & Greet on Friday and for our Potluck on Saturday.

It is to be located close to site #4 and 5 in Section A. They have moved tables and fire pits into the area for our use. As mentioned earlier just look for the happy group of campers.

Brad &Jane are in A 07. Rick. Is there any reason we'll need any Canadian money in the park?

Eh Brad, credit cards work in most places but I am not sure if the snack bar or the stores in St Malo take US cash. I would suggust you get some of our pretty colored money. But if you dont plan on buying anything them it is entirely up to you.

Fire Restrictions - Good News!

Due to the very dry weather in Manitoba there are some parks that have fire restrictions, meaning, no fires at all!

However, St. Malo park is not part of these restrictions so we will be able to have fires in our campsites and at the get togethers.

I called the St Malo Park office today and they stated that due to their different type of vegetation and trees they are not at a very high fire risk.

A note for our American friends crossing the border. It probably will not pay to bring fire wood from your home into Canada...Customs generaly will not allow raw wood through the border due to possible transfer of insects.

I usually spend up to 2 weeks each camping season at St.Malo over the past few years. In fact I just did a 2 week stint there and just got back.

For those of you unfamiliar with the area, I will try to fill you in.

The lake at St.Malo does not allow gas powered boats. Only electric/wind or human powered, so it's quite.

The town of St.Malo is just on the other side of the hiway, so a two minute drive from the sites. There are two Grocery/General stores in town, so if you forget a few things, don't worry. There is also a laundry mat and a bar/vendor if anyone wants to pick up some frosty ales. Almost everyone in town takes Credit card and interact/debit.

Firewood can be bought at the campground for $6 a bundle of 4 bundles for $20. It is cash only and is right beside the campground check in office. Firewood can also be bought in town from the local residents selling it from their driveways. Usually $5 a bundle.

The campground has two beaches, The beach by the rally site(east beach) is less desirable. It is rocky and gets deep fast. The other beach (west beach) has better sand is much longer and doesn't get deep as fast. The west beach can be seen from the east beach and is only a short walk.

At the end of the west beach you can rent a few different 2 seater peddle boats for $15 an hour to tour the lake.

By the west beach is an ice Cream parlor called Holy Cow. They serve soft and hard ice cream as well as other cold treats, beverages and burgers n fries. It's a bit pricey, but the Oreo Cookie Sundae is amazing!! 6 oreo cookies, ice creame, whip cream and a few cherries. Best shared with two people!

For those of you with kids, St.Malo is the place for you. Along with the two beaches, there are a lot of bike trails and several newly updated play ground structures located at both beaches.

There are fish in the lake, but fishing is not the greatest. There are a lot of reeds along the shorelines, so shore fishing is not all that good. If you had a canoe or a little boat, then jigging a little bit out is your best bet.

There are a few groomed walking trails through the forest.

On the south west corner of the campground is the dam/spill way. It is very scenic at the bottom as the water runs down the spillway. Photo Op

There is a par 3 golf course just east outside of the park.

There are 3 shower stations in the park, one is located by the rally and the other two are located in the 1-10 bays area.

There are several water running washrooms scattered in the park, including one near the rally as well as a few out houses.

One of the only negative things about the park is the poison ivy. Where the rally is being held is the open area of the campground, so none is around, but right at the bush line, it's everywhere. If you dont go bush crashing in shorts, you'll be fine.

Hope this helps a few out.

See ya there!
