    Looks like we need to bring our own fire pits. Any of you trailer queen relic owners either have a pit or have room for one in your town rig? I have one but I'm not sticking it in side either of the trucks I might bring.

    I'd be game for a group dinner or breakfast or both. I can make 8 big pancakes at a time on my camp chef griddle.

    I have not looked do we need a fire pit or just a fire ring.

    It has to be off the ground. No rings.

    I'll see what I can come up with.
    My wife will not be happy when I come back and her fire pit is damaged from putting a bond fire in it.

    REREAD THE POST about fires. There are established fire rings, but if you want to have one somewhere other than in the established ring, you need to have a raised fire pit.

    There is no emergency and we don't NEED a raised fire pit.

    There are 3 main "camp sites" at the campground each supporting up to 50 people. The way I read it was each of the larger camp site loops has a fire ring, not the individual tent sites. If each of the tent sites has their own fire ring I'm not sure why this would have even come up as an issue.

    Yes this is true and perhaps I didn't word it very clearly. Yes there are 3 main sites with one large fire ring for each one. Since not every tent can be super close to the fire some folks like to have their own "personal" campfire. This is fine but just requires a raised fire pit to do so. If anyone has questions by all means come hunt me down and I'll be more than happy to help out. I will be there Thursday AM. Thanks guys and really looking forward to meeting you all.

    guys I have plenty of old dried out, bug infested, pallets at the office. We can totally use a few to get the fire ring off the ground:clap:

    Chili pot, where everyone brings an ingredient and a can.
    Hot dog buffet
    English muffin with meat, egg, cheese, super easy to prepare in advance. Lex can provide this one morning, if every one wants to chip in a couple of bucks- i would be borrowing a stove.
    :beer:
    pasta pot, with red gravy
    skyline chili
    corn liqueur hell don't even know her
    taco buffet

    I am happy to cook- I eat a lot of garlic.

    Lex - I like to eat and I like garlic

    Chris - Please leave the bug stock pot at home.

    Frito Clilli Pie is about all I can cook but I like the idea of group meals.

    Gary, Jeff, and I will need some carrot and raisin salad to keep regular.

    May I recommend dried prunes and maybe some prune juice for you guys, especial with the no booze policy down there. It should do you a lot of good!

    You won't think it's so funny when my bowels explode in your tent.
