My recollection is hazy. Something about a little short guy in a big van and sawing up a pound cake with a machete.

I like camping. I camp all the time. I'm a scoutmaster and I'm always camping. Only drawback is there's NO BEER. I'd go camping with you guys. Do we have a northeast coalition? I'm on the shore in Niantic Ct. I'll travel to mass, lower NH-VT. IT'S JUNE! :drinkers:

YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

Now that's a handsome rig! I like how the stripes match. Is that really camping if you never touch dirt?

Gary,

It's funny that you bring this up. I was just thinking about these the other day and how I never made it to one when the old site, and this one, were in full-swing.

I don't recall where the NECO's were held but I think it was the distance that killed it for me.

The pics and stories were quite an event, even vicariously.

We're finally getting serious about using our pop up with the '03 Stro this year.

Maybe if there was one a bit more to the Midwest?

Hmmm????
