With all due respect, you are cutting off your nose to spite your face. I hate RV parks, but I will suck it up and stay in one during a GC so I can enjoy being with other Mutants. GCs are a phenomenal event that will change your life for the better.

I've not yet decided if I'll leave my DD's house a month early so I can attend this GC, but I'm so tempted. Yes, the park's greedy policies are what has me hesitating. Charging half the fee 8 months ahead of the event wrankles my scotch heritage. Then there's the extra 3,000 miles it will add to my summer to winter trek.

I encourage you to spend at least 3 days there. You can thank me later.

Da yoopers tell me, I am a troll because I live below the bridge.
Two different lines about being a yooper. Hard liners say you can only be a yooper if you are born a yooper. Soft liners say ya got to live a whole winter in da UP to be a yooper,eh. No weekends away. The WHOLE winter, from the end of August to the first of June.
We have found pasties in Sierra Vista,AZ on farmers market day in the park. A lady with a food truck comes from Bisbee to sell them. The miners in Bisbee took them into the mines just like the guys in da UP. Pasties in AZ are a little different as they have no rutabaga in them as rutabaga wouldn't grow in the desert.

Dave wants me there for opening ceremonies and you say the last 3 days. I don't want to know what happens in between. A deep dark secret perhaps?

OK weird thought:
I was on the Mutant forum a few minutes ago on the little Surface tablet. I wasn'y logged in so I was seeing ads in some of the posts. Wayne's post about the super bowl party came up containing an ad showing some green stuff in a bowl (fat reducing diet or something) that really looked like a bunch of marijuana and I thought that is going to be a REALLY interesting party...
So of course I had to change computers so I could be logged in and post this silly comment...(either that or go get my password so I could log in on the other one, this was easier)

Well, I reckon I'm a Yooper then! Yaa shhhoor!! Naah, I know it takes a little more than you described Dave, and others have listed, but that's OK.

Toured the fort on the mit side......became a lifelong fan (in awe) of the Mighty Mac......spent time in da Yoo Pee, couldn't believe the 10ft (and higher) poles to mark houses in case of a blizzard.......been to the island and Grand Hotel, ever see the movie "Somewhere In Time" ?
I love the island, that is the clearest water I've ever seen in my life. Lastly, before crossing back over the Mighty Mac, one evening we watched a meteor shower. I can tell you with confidence, I will never experience that again long as I live. There was zero light pollution, clear sky, and wow.....so many meteors I couldn't keep up with them. This went on for hours....absolutely marvelous!

On my bucket list is doing the tractor ride across the bridge on my old Allis Chalmers. That may be going on about the same time as the Mutant Symposium.

So how's the recovery coming?

Go Brady! Whichever team he's on.
Don't you be pickin' on the Boomers, 'cause that would be more than you could handle.

Typing with both hands now so beware, beware. Bandages off the 15th of this month. I'll salute you.

Go Cowboys! (Ooops) Go Texans! (Ooops)

You want lure the CA mutants to NV you could try a $100 gaming card. I am sure the treasury could stand it because I don't see our dues being spent on any worthwhile projects.
I live less than 50 miles from the FEMIGC but wont be attending. I sounded off before about their money grubbing policies. Have to buy their wood is just one of them. If I wanted to come visit you all they would charge us a fee.

If you were on I-10 you passed within 40 miles of us and could have met 6 more RVMutants. For shame, for shame!

Triple dog dare
Really want to meet youse!
What he said...and he pays.

====================
Ever been to New England in the Summer. Prices most likely the same as the UP. They only have a narrow window to make their livelihood. Galveston is 14 miles from us and the RV Parks there are higher than here on the mainland. Tourists, you know. All the touristy areas are going to be higher in rates. Heck, look at Florida in the Winter time. Come to Texas Gulf Coast during winter and the rates are 1/3 what they are in Florida.

Who goes to Florida in the heat of summer, or Texas? We are "summerbirds" and leave the heat in the Summer. UP sounds good to us, nice and cool.

Tractor ride is Aug. But you could come for the old car meet or the semi tractor show or the Corvette weekend or the Iron workers weekend.
Labor day bridge walk is a mad house but a unique experience.

Ah! #2 on MI bucket list then.....the old car meet is a fit for my '62 Buick when I get her fixed up!

Yeah let's see....tractor ride is August, isn't it last week before Labor Day? Anyway, it's growing every year. This year I hear they eclipsed 1000 tractors. Very cool.

We will be leavin' here on Wed. Up to Del Rio for a while then back up to I-10 at Vanhorn.

At LEAST 3 days, the first 3 days are when most of the fun happens. It will take that long to meet everyone.

If you keep heading west on I-10 you'll pass within 5 miles of us. Take Arizona exit 19 and stop by for a while. There's still plenty of room here if you want to boondock.

We might make it to Q. And Yuma. and Laughlin/Bullhead. Not planned that far ahead yet. We do mosey around.
As you all know....it's the journey. What destination?
