Sounds interesting. Just have to look at our calendar. For us out of state visitors you might want to look at this site and consider the annual pass

As with any state park, sites are limited for the bigger RVs. If you don't need a 40 ft, would you please choose a site just a little smaller if that will work for you. Check out D loop too....all the loops connect so we won't be far away from each other. Take a look and let me know which site you choose!!

No Ferry for us! With the hike in parkway tolls and the Ferry charges we can drive around for less in the same amount of time!

Sounds like a good time and so close to home, but we cannot make it as we will be on the other side of the Bay attending our Granddaughters Confirmation.

Same here. With the new rates, either end of the parkway from our house is now $19 with the trailer

Bill, you can reserve online. I don't think there is anyone in their office to take calls until April......here is the direct link: this is the easiest way...

Hey Shirley (aka, John)!!! Glad you are going to be able to make it. We want to hear all about your Alaska trip!

Do you think we can talk Paula (Paul Lopiccolo) into tagging along?????? Sorry, but you guys are never going to live that one down!

Deb, I'll pass the message along to Shirley and Paula. I am sure you will have opportunities to see as many pictures as you can stand since we will have our laptop along. We get on a roll when we start talking about our Alaska trip, so I am also sure you will have to stop us when your ears shut down.
Marie :rolleyes:

Geez...forgot I had this thread going...I thought I only had it on the Facebook Heartland page....

Ok, time is ticking down for our little campout. Looks like we will have 100% participation from the (known) DE contingents....

Let's talk food. Our favorite topic!

Potluck!!!! Saturday evening at 6p.

Who can bring what? We can have appetizers, main, sides, and desserts.

Each person supply their own drinks...

I'm hoping for some good rain over the next week or so...it's so dry here...not sure about restrictions on campfires...

Things to do on Saturday.... I will have info when we all get there on Friday.

Jim and I will be staying there on Thursday night too. I am working 1/2 day so I will be back to camp by 2p Friday.

Cheryl, how many rigs do we have total. Are we the 7 that have posted here or are there more coming?

I will be making fried chicken on biscuits with lettuce tomato and a special sauce otherwise known as ranch dressing! Mmmmmm!

dieselsweetheart
04-18-2012, 09:37 PM
Deb, I do believe it's just us 7. No one new added lately. Thanks!

Karen, was hoping you'd make some of your cornbread you made for last fall...that was wonderful!

Update for those of you joining us this w/e.

Apparently 4 inches of rain all w/e wasn't enough to lift the fire ban here in DE. So that means no fire. Hmmmm...gonna have to think of something else to entertain us.

If anyone would NOT like to cook or prep a meal for Friday night after docking, I thought we could run over to the Frederica Pizza and Pasta House for some grub. We just tried out the pizza there tonight (have to try it before I let my friends eat there)..and it was pretty good. The restaurant is nice inside, and has a bar too. It wasn't too busy tonight (even with the polling place at the firehouse across the street) but the waitress told me Fridays are busy, so I can call Friday to have them reserve seats for us.

So if you'd like to do that, and not cook, let me know. The restaurant is about 5 miles (or less) from the park.

Nona has already told me she's not up for cooking!

How about the little red "campout" propane fire? We have one of those.

The weather-guessers can't predict yesterday's weather with 100% accuracy - why would you even think they could get the weather correct 3-5 days from now?

I'm still holding out hope for a rain-less weekend....DE doesn't have it's own TV station, so we are living through Philadelphia. But usually what they get, we get.

I am bringing sides for the potluck.

Yep - to this day I vividly remember the forecasted "Sunny and Clear for the Next 3 days", as I ran at WOT (45MPH) to get into a safe harbor before the monstrous thunderstorm with 50 MPH winds that was chasing me down the Potomac river caught up. (Thank God the Coast Guard broadcast an emergency weather notice so I turned my head to see that thing coming up behind me!)

We were treated to a small ceremony this morning following breakfast which included the passing of the flags to our new Pennsylvania and Delaware leadership. This was very nice Cheryl! You are always thinking!

Great weekend despite the doom and gloom forecast. The little bit of rain we had was kept clear by the canopy of trees.
Great choice Cheryl.
