Alex and I will be at Opening and at least All Hallows. We're thinking of doing another off weekend either day tripping with family or camping, we'll decide that later.

There's still plenty of people on here... They're just being too quiet lol.

The IPB will be there All Hallow's Eve weekend. We join up with the Bayou Scoundrels (since a lot of them are also IPB) when camping. Can't wait!

I think I will be attending the Heroes and Villains weekend as well. I have plans for something fun.

That works for me.   More people to stand me up after StudMuffin bucks me off.
Funny that it only happens after a few "adult" beverages.  I'm going to have to stop letting StudMuffin drink.

Yeah, studmuffin gets a bit rowdy after a few drinks for sure.  But you can't put all the blame on him, Keeper you're always pushing him to down just one more shot.

Now for the business part of this post, AHE & Celtic Christmas for me with family camping with the clan (PR).

I'm new to the forum, but I'll be there for all of the weekends and camping this year.

It will be just me (I don't know anyone who attends the faires) , except for a few weekends when my six year old son wants to camp too.

It's sad not seeing our names on the camping list anymore, but we've been completely disenchanted.

We have enough tickets for 3 day trips. Pretty sure we'll be there for closing weekend but the other two will most likely be spur of the moment decisions.

The only reason I camp is for the people...I don't even go into faire anymore.

Guess I will have to buy you a beer in the campground and not at the SeaDevil, Fraser.

Order of Comrades will be there at least twice this year. There will be at least 8 of us on Pirate Adventure and Heroes and Villains. The wife and I will probably do a day trip for Celtic Christmas. We normally camp in area 10, so come say hello!

Anyway you can update the map? They have made some changes to the campgrounds like clearing of trees and forest areas.
Title: Re: WWW...2017...Still going strong!!
Post by: KiltedPrivateer on September 17, 2017, 04:54:25 PM
Yeah, I'm pretty sure the map is out of date. Not sure however when I'll have an opportunity to update it. Since we don't camp at TRF anymore it is unlikely that I'll see the grounds first hand. If anyone is interested in taking over map duties I can make the files available. I use Gimp as my editor which means any graphics program should be adequate.

The new map is posted on the website.  The RV pads look awfully close to where several clans camp.  And close to where we like to camp...  Hopefully it will be more clear once some of y'all make it out to the open house.

Actually the symbol is a bit north of Camp Fred...we...McShug, Bayou, and PR are on the other side of the access road BUT we won't know for sure until Saturday.  Our camp is in the corner formed by the access road and the fire road, with Bayou and PR spreading out from our borders to and along the bottom of the "horseshoe".  I'm hoping it more in 1A as apposed to 1B

They opened some new space in 1C...which might be somewhere to migrate to if concrete has been laid in our area.

The RV Pad sites are just off the horseshoe closest to faire and includes the road that was there so you can't drive thru that area anymore.  (The other reference would be if you're driveing downt he blacktop between the rows and camping you can't make that right/left s onto the horseshoe.)

I understand that Phoenix Risen has moved back to inside the old horseshoe area, just accross the road from where we were last year.  Back to the area where we had been in the years prior to last.
And I sure hope they put a handicapped port-a-privy at that end of the campground.  It was a long ride last year after celebrating too much to the nearest one.

At least they didn't bring back the "Vertigo Loo" from the year before.  That dang thing was scary...as soon as you shut the door, you swore to God that either it was going to fall over or you were...

We'll be in a nice cul de sac...you could call our collective clans "The Dead End Gang"... ;D

I don't think there was one as they already had them set up.  But perhaps if you call and talk to the Campground director they may be able to accommodate you.
