Diane toftSFM #64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!
It was served in Texas but I'll bet it was grown in another state -- Idaho maybe? Of course it takes a BIG man to eat it.

Marty... I haven't traveled the east coast yet, but have heard the same. And yet many do it so it, so it can be done with proper planning. I think the hardest thing to get scheduled will be group accommodations. That's why I'm interested in locking the GC location in and the second tier Maritime location(s) down sooner than later.

I think New York is too far south for the GC. The places Dave and I talked about are beautiful but roughly 1100 miles from Halifax for example. Mutants wishing to travel on would have a long way to travel after the fact. And even with 5 or so going north it could be difficult to stay together along the way.

For me - the trip to the Maritimes is one of those lifelong bucket list items and at this stage of the game, probably a once in a lifetime adventure. I think I might need to land in AZ and break out Trip Wizard and really work on this.

Let's keep the info flowing and see if we can't build out the lists of possible attendance for both stateside GC in say Maine and the journey to the North Country growing.

It's travel day so got to run. Catch you mutants later.

It amazes me sometimes when I look at some campgrounds in the north east and the prices they can demand. Many times I see monthly rates that meet or exceed Key West rates at prime time. Just mind-boggling when all you get to do is sit in the woods with lots of mosquitos...

New York state seems to have a lot more opportunities for camping than say CT/MA. Vermont state parks have no facilities and I've also stayed in a place in NH (way north, more towards Canada border). One would think Maine would have better availability due to it being farther away and less populated in comparison.

Hey Carl!
In the NE they charge more because of the demand. And the peeps pay it!
I agree on NY State. I've located potential sites, and have no favorites. Odds are I may just go straight to ME. It is only one overnight to get there from PA. Perhaps we all take our own trail?
I hunted out the Timberland Acres Park because it is away a bit, and big, and in easy reach of a ton of sight seeing. There were not any more within that range that could accomodate us. Any farther, the fuel expense would eat up more than the higher camp fees.
I have not researched the farther Maritime camping yet.
Just ponderin folks.

When Denise and I hit Keene to visit friends we parked at storage yard and they picked us up to go to their house. Prearranged by them. We stayed for a couple of days and then ventures forth and almost all the campgrounds we visited were overflowing with bigger units. They may be far from the population centers but they get inundated by those who want to be away from it all for thirty or forty seconds at a time.

Mutant Leader One, there are some really nice campgrounds in New York state that Denise and I enjoyed. One in Bath that had nice friendly owners and a fishing hole that didn't require a license. Babcock Hollow according to the keepsake key-ring they gave us.

Yes, it's me again

This is the only means for me to contact ALL of the mutants that appear interested in the gathering in AZ in February.

I need to share some frustrations:
1) The Pima County Fairgrounds Campground (PCFC) does NOT take reservations of any kind. All 260 sites are first come-first served.

2) The fair board had a special meeting and voted to reserve 15 sites for our mutant gathering. 10 back-to-back and 5 more in a line with one of the 5 others.

3) The first 15 now have a guaranteed spot to camp. You know who you are.

4) The other 4 (RVMs 13, 86, 110, 127) have a 95% chance of having a campsite inside the fairgrounds. They (PCFC) may have another meeting to see if they can guarantee 5 more sites. RVM80 is commuting from home.

5) The "availability" of sites (by going through me) is now closed except on a "you might have a site when you show up" basis.

Note: I am not happy. Various people at the other end of the phone implied that room would be made for mutants as needed. A six week horse show lands on our dates in February. That appears to be the the PCFC's "bread and butter" and the PCFC came up with "first come - first served" years ago to take the heat off of their backs (so to speak). I apologize but I was "blindsided" by this development. The PCFC says that they have not heard from RVM 86 & 127. It appears, unless I get 4 more spots promised, that the last 4 mutants will need to be in communication with PCFC and arrive early. 520-762-9100 ext.1026 Gol dang it anyway - - - - GEEEESH

I'm afraid that a foray into the Maritime Provinces is going to have to stay on the bucket list. We are working and pondering on making it to the gathering for the week in Maine. We'll work hard on our pondering and keep you informed. If reservations can be made and then cancelled, say by May 1, put us on the list for Maine only.
