First trip booked!
« on: January 21, 2013, 07:46:58 PM »
Just reserved #84 in french Camp for may 10-13. this will be the first trip since my brother in-law passed :'( My nephew's are very exited to go camping and fishing and I'm so very blessed to be able to step in and be there for them. I'm having a trailer spoted this time, the last time we went up this early it snowed on us, I didn't mind, my wife and sister inlaw did'nt care for it to much :cold:

Cannot wait to hear once your back from this trip Bestfrets!  Should be good.

Good call on the trailer ,we were there over Memorial day last year and although we were in shorts during the day it snowed our first night and the wind was crazy. We had a trailer as well so everyone was happy. Site 84 is a GREAT site !!!   :clap:

Yup . The hard part is the countdown!
I too became  "the Uncle"  :baseball: a few yrs ago. It has been real rewarding sharing skiing,surfing and filling in the blanks on his dad left out by his bitter mom.
The E.S. is where I come to get back to sanity and to the real me.

Being the uncle is a rewarding spot to be in. I was there myself in "93" when my brother passed from the affects of agent orange. The kids since have grown and have families of their own now, but periodically ask "Uncle Bill, you remember when...?" I know my brother would smile if he could hear. Good camping this year ...and many more to come! It does everyone good...not just the kids.
