Ron
Checked the site out a number of times. I really like it, and I know that it will be added to. I been there and had a great time. Its a place you can go and feel right at home, I take my family with me. I have a few questions.
#1-- You stay over night $15.00. Can you have Alcohol? Can you drink beer day or night?
The way I read it no, as long as in R&V Park? NO ALCOHOL!!!
#2-- What about BONE FIRE? and wood?
Thanks
Gar

No drinking on the park. Deciding what to do about after hours and the camping area. Most likely it will be OK there.
We are planning a community fire pit by the big rock that I will move to a central location in the camping area. and have some rings and rock for private pits also. We will have plenty of wood for fires on site .

I had 2 station wagons side by and they were very hard to go over but they became a tire cutting hazard so they had to go. RB

K no car. I will see you about the tractor tires . I also have some big loader tires I have to pick up when the snow melts. We have a source for old power poles and log jams are in the plans for the first new trail (again when the snow melts).

By the way I was thinking RB was MIA. Come on down some time.

and the killer rock was RB's placement on the trail he directed. I like that trail. It makes you think a bit.

It's snowmobile season, and my kids break stuff as fast as I can fix it. Not to mention I'm building another daily driver just in case my current one dies. I vote we leave the rock and sell parts! RB
