Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

Total Est. Time: 10 hours, 52 minutes

Total Est. Distance: 665.47 miles

That is getting a little better.

I plan on going to Country Fest in Cadott, WI in June and would be more than happy to meet up with any other skoolie.net members that might enjoy a 4 door outdoor country music party.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

I like Michigan a little more too. It is roughly 560 for me going most direct route. But that won't happen. OK was roughly 775 and doesn't include any driving to different points.
On to the showers now, are they wheelchair accessible? If not the only thing I'd be able to get by with would be a spot to refill my water tank and the freedom to dump shower water to the ground if I have to. Myself I can use the showers but my friend that would be coming with has a much harder time.


Advantage with MI is I could take the bus on a boat ride http://www.ssbadger.com which I want to do anyways and then I can take the scenic route north to the mackinaw bridge and cut over towards Duluth to go home.

To me the thing that makes sense be a more of a regional thing instead of a centrally located event. Fuel cost kill us all let alone the time it takes to get to a place.

I just looked at it and by taking the boat across it is 515 miles one way to Sturgis MI. Of coarse it would be more than $245 for two of us to ride across with a bus.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

If you're taking the northern route home I'd enjoy convoying with you. I live about 60 miles north of Duluth now. Buses going for boat rides...I like the idea.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

Hey all! This is Train- trains wife. He wanted me to get on here and answer questions about Cade Lake Campground. So far the only question I see is about the showers. We do have wheelchair accessible showers! We also have 4 handicapped sites that have a cement pad, wheelchair accessible picnic tables and the taller fire rings. We do not have water at every site but we do have water spigots that you can fill your tanks at and a dump station.

We open the first weekend in May and close the second weekend in Oct. I haven't made up the activities schedule for next year yet... if you guys decide to do this at the park I can plan the whole weekend around the event. You'll just have to let me know before Feb when I post the 2008 Schedule.

Here are a few photos we took this last season just for your viewing pleasure...

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

I would probably duck out of a Michigan for it is all the way across the country. Oklahoma is a more central location. Going that far north is just to much for me.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

Okay, so we have had a few suggestions. Oklahoma, Missouri, Michigan etc. How are we going to decide this? We should discuss it for another month or two and then take a poll or something. We should at least have the location and a time frame nailed down by Christmas. A lot of people are going to need some advance notice so they can plan ahead and get time off work, save money and what not. What do you guys think?
