I'm debating on the Red Roof Inn , the Sleep Inn or the Garden Inn. Looks to be about $140-$160 for two nights.

I just booked the Red Roof for the 10th and 11th.

Alas i am wrong. He might be there, but i feel it is my duty to inform yall that Earthquake has been disassembled, and no longer in his possession.

Yes it's true, needed to go with a smaller setup on a daily driver in preparation for another daughter. When I took the sounds out someone offered to buy it and figured it was an opportunity for a new toy.

Lets start talking menu for Sat. So far it looks like half a hog, about 30# of ribs, some burgers, brats, hot dogs, some green bean cassarole . Are there any specific requests?
 

Matt

Sounds good to me. Is the hog headless? Is there anything you want me to bring?

Chow down on some hog and drink some beer (and apple pie) for me.

Probably headless if it's half a hog, usually have the head when we do a whole one. Just post whatever you want to bring so we know what's covered.

I'll likely have a few hundred jello shots again as well.

Can I reserve a spot for overnighting in the truck? Wife says I am gonna fly solo for this, so I dont think a hotel room is warranted.

Well, I may be doing a flying visit. My Mum is talking about coming over for a couple of weeks right when the meet is. If she does, I'll most likely drive up for the day.

The family will be there for atleast the day. Once we get closer we will see how the cards fall for an over night stay.

I am up for it. I am in Michigan so not a big leap for me. Thank you for organizing this.

It's official, flying visit. I'll be there about 10am or so on Saturday and leave in the early evening.

I got a bunch of tents but have found the back of the truck pretty comfy and no risk of this

Or do like me and bring the tent without poles. Made it real cozy in my aunt's small motorhome for my family. Of course I was relegated to the floor for my forgetfulness.

I haven't booked my hotel yet. Where is everybody staying? I know @Matt said he's staying at the Red Roof but reviews are mixed on Trivago but good on Hotel.com.

Is there an update on needed supplies?

Red Roof was fine when I was there last.

If there's still room to put a trailer / camper on site (mine is 25'), add me in.

Taking the trailer in for warranty service this Friday; I should (?) have it back by Aug 10th. Unfortunately, that service mainly concerns the roof - and it looks like Forest River and myself are gearing up for a fight, with the dealer in the middle.

My trailer sleeps 3 (four, but I'm not sharing my bed w/ any of you...lol).
Two can share the dinette, if desired (it's a 70", wall-to-wall).

We can use my tub as a beer cooler, if desired (and I can arrive with it stocked...put your orders in for brand).
No stand-alone icemaker (yet), though. After the ice in the tub goes, someone has to run for more. 3 ice cube trays and an RV fridge aren't going to go far, making more on the fly...LOL

I can also bring a blender ('Ritas, anyone?); just have to figure out what 110v solution I'll have for it. Probably a 2000w gennie (I can run A/C with it, too)
I'll bring some other things besides tequila, as well. Those choosing to partake, please supply mixers of choice - I'm not a bartender!

Bring your USB / Btooth devices - the trailer has outdoor speakers (and an awning). BYO seating. And tables!

My own gas grill is tiny, but there's also a 'quick connect' on the trailer, if someone has a larger one they want to bring / share (PM me for info on this; it will have to run w/o a regulator, else you'll get no flow to the grill, being double-regulated). Or you can run straight off a 20# tank. I can bring an extra 20# tank just for grilling, too).

Might be able to bring the Sierra; if not, the trusty Voy will be pulling the trailer.

I'm not staying now mate, I'll be doing a one day trip. My Mum is flying in on the 7th for 3 weeks and it's been a couple of years since I've seen her so I had to make that decision. I'll be there about 10 on Saturday and leave about 5 or 6.

Red roof seems to be OK and rates are reasonable.

Should I bring my Tech 2? I can't tune with it but could help diagnose stuff. EV fan clutch is the easy to check with this thing.

I'm hoping to come out with a few friends Friday night and stay till Saturday night or Sunday morning. Is there space to set up tents or hammocks on site?

I wound up booking at Baymont by Wyndham Elkhart. It was cheaper and has free breakfast.

Plenty of room left, you're welcome to bring it.

We can use my tub as a beer cooler, if desired (and I can arrive with it stocked...put your orders in for brand).

I have 4 fridges in the garage and a few coolers, this is all at my house so we'll have power, WiFi, water etc.. but probably won't run enough lines back for all the campers to hookup individually.

I can also bring a blender ('Ritas, anyone?); just have to figure out what 110v solution I'll have for it. Probably a 2000w gennie (I can run A/C with it, too)
I'll bring some other things besides tequila, as well. Those choosing to partake, please supply mixers of choice - I'm not a bartender!
I have some dual mixers and individual blenders available, no need to bring extras unless you really want to.

My own gas grill is tiny, but there's also a 'quick connect' on the trailer, if someone has a larger one they want to bring / share (PM me for info on this; it will have to run w/o a regulator, else you'll get no flow to the grill, being double-regulated). Or you can run straight off a 20# tank. I can bring an extra 20# tank just for grilling, too).
Several grills (charcoal and propane) as well as a large roaster available.

There's a small pool and other misc stuff available as well.

Well, this has changed again! Jay (Wishbone) was here on Friday and Saturday, we talked about it and I'm coming Friday and leaving Sunday...I'll be invading his camper.

Better than not at all. I just want to raise a glass (or bottle or can) with you all.

Hurry up, trailer! (still at dealer service dept) And I found an icemaker for it...lol.

On edit: Looks like I need some sort of FB invite (and I don't spend time there). Can someone PM me with info? As little as 'address' would be fine. Thanks.

I'm in the same boat, I don't use facebook. Can someone pm me with info or can you send the facebook invite to my mom? She could relay the info to me.

Friends of friends can invite to the facebook thing I think. but you don't need to be on there, shoot me a message here and I'll send the address to anyone who needs it.
People can share my cell and address to those who need it as well

@Grimor just sent me the info via PM. Since it's OK to share it, I'll fwd to anyone on this thread who needs it - just HMU.

So who's bringing what? What should we bring? Apart from some Canadian liquid desert, I can also stop by a grocery store and pick up something that's needed.

Maybe a recap is in order?
