voyaguers national park

Getting close to time to leave on our big trip of the year.

Not as long as recent years, at 1 week plus travel, but special indeed. Carol's family has gone to Pine Aire Resort on Lake Kabetogama, in Voyaguers national park in Norethern Minnesota, for 3 generations. Really, her Grampa took them there when she was a little girl.

Our family has been there many many times, but less often in recent years, and not at all in 4 or 5. We decided to explore different places, and we'll continue to do that, but this year, we're going "home"

It was mostly my family, and Carol's sister Lori's who've done "Kab." Lori and Phil especially, I don't think they have ever missed a year, and some years they have gone twice. The others, not as much. It's particularly hard with Ron and I, he's my right hand in the business, and we really can't be gone at the same time. Once that I recall, and I broke my leg that year.

Anyway, this year, Carol's Brother Ken, wife Shannon, and Kayla and Andrew are going. When we heard that, we signed on in a heartbeat. Best news is Pine Aire resort has expanded thier campground, and they have room for my new super bus, LAKESIDE since I reserved early.

Anyway, I can't wait... We leave next Friday morning, and I brought the bus home this afternoon to get ready... Now we're pretty good at this camping stuff these days, we get ready in a couple hours.... sigh.

Actually, don't tell anyone, but I'm sitting in my driveway in the bus, a/c roaring and nascar XM on the satelite radio.

I don't feel bad tho. Kayla is more excited than me, she's only been there once, and she was too little to remember it. To her, it's just this mythical place that me and her Dad talk about a lot.

Jim, I sure hope that this is a private or local park and not a STATE park! I just heard on the news that Minn. has closed down ALL of its state parks due to lack of funds.

Have a great 4th!
