Hi Eric
Nope not on the Russian stuff anymore unless you count Black Russians. I'm now on a great new steroid that comes from Belgium in 12 ounce bottles called Hoegaarden. Not only does it make you think you're strong it makes you think you are smart and good looking. And that you can sing like Merle Haggard. Stopt over at my bros today and got some peppers, hot, mild, temperate. I Don't know which is which so I'll be giving them away at the rally.
Dave

Many thanks, Paul, for all the work organizing and Red Dog, for the report on Pine Grove. I'm hoping to be there but came home from Lisbon, Portugal Sunday night with Norovirus as a souvenir. Feeling much better now so hopefully I will see you all if I have the energy for the drive.

My mutts, Lily and Luna will be with me. They love people and other doggies. Part Jack Russell, part Blue Heeler, they would have loved herding some Kelpies.

Red Dog status report from Pine a Grove Loop

As of 2 pm CDT today, 6 of the 31 campsites are taken in the Pine Grove Campground. Hope to see everyone soon.

Just as a reminder, they ask us to drive to the campground and drop the rig at your chosen site. Then, you go back to the registration office and register your site. No exceptions. But, if you are not familiar with the campground, here is a screenshot of the layout, or you can pick up a map at the registration office. There is a dump station with potable water as you enter the Pine Grive Campground. There are NO water spigots in the campground for adding water later.

Another good report. We plan on arriving earl afternoon tomorrow. I will have two 5 gal potable water jugs along that anyone is welcome to borrow if they need to add water while there. Eric Thompson has volunteer to lug them to your site, at least that's what I thought he said. We are coming in on Hiway 30 and cuttin south on 61.
