Also Schoolhouse owns 30 acres across the street and a private beach just for the campground. It's just a five minute walk down the river trail. So bring your swim suits!

Lots of new people, I'm getting excited. This will be fun!

 Someone asked of type 3's were allowed?  Is that ok? I know it is supposed to be for buses but I thought it was pretty lenient as far as others?

Kim - yes - all VWs welcome. And we won't turn away cars of other makes as long as the people are fun to camp with!

Hi All, on Kickstarter there is a pretty cool table that sits on your tire. It folds flat and is made of metal. I decided to back the project for $55 and that includes shipping. Retail will be $140. Kickstarter doesn't charge you until the project is fully funded. Delivery would be in June if it moves forward.

It's so much fun, and with the amount of travel we did last year, I'm curious to see how the "most miles" shapes up
