We are again gathering for a weekend of camping, cocktails, leef peeping, eating Craig's beer-butt-chicken, and perhaps even sampling some of his homemade wine and beer. There will also be the required tire kicking and telling of conversion lies.

Everyone is invited. Maybe you early departing snowbirds can stop in on your way south.

We will gather Sept 25, 26 and 27 (Fri, Sat and Sun).

The location is still being decided, but will again be in the area north of Hinckley and south of Duluth. Unless we find a much better spot elsewhere. We will try to nail down the location in the next week and post it back here.

I've been thinking about BK's rally that weekend, but a Minnesota rally would certainly be less expensive to attend.

I would love to be in TN that weekend, but unfortunately, this trip to CO and WY has put a crimp in my unemployed wallet, and while the unemployed part is changing next week, I have to make this trip again in December, so I think I'm going to have to stay close to home for awhile.

OK, here is the promised info on this years site. We have moved a short distance from where we were last year.

This year we will be at the Moose Lake City Campground, on Sept 25, 26 and 27. They are located on 4th Street and Birch Avenue, between the lake and the high school. Their phone number is 218 485-4761. Please mention that you are with the Bus-Nuts when you call.

The sites are nice and level, with electric and water hookups for 24.00 a night. Sites with sewer hookups are also available, and of course there is a dump station there.

We walked through the campground tonight, and it is nice and quiet. The camp ground sits right on the lake. It is a smaller campground, but since it will be later in the year, most of the seasonal folks will be gone. There will also be a small group of Holiday Ramblers staying there at the same time. Our block of sites will be very close to the shower and bathroom building, which was very clean when we checked them out. There are also tent camping sites available.

Being next door to the school, there is a nice playground close by. And 1 block out of the campground is the bike trail system that will offer many miles of nice riding on the different trails.

On the other side of the campground is the City Park, which has a nice swimming beach with changing and rest rooms.

We have set aside a block of sites at the back of the camp ground. They do not take credit cards, but will take your reservation and hold your spot for you, and you can pay them when you arrive.

I have been asked about the meals; are there pot luck meals; what is needed etc. Please give us a few more days, and we will have something worked out. This is pretty laid back, so i know it will all work out just fine. If i missed something, or if you have questions or suggestions, please let me know.

I'll call them soon to reserve the space for us.

As for meals, I'm up for making beer butt chickens one night, if you want. Just let me know so I can get the chickens. I can do 3 chickens in my roaster.

Hey gang,

Is this the town of Moose Lake just southwest of Duluth??

If so, count the Barron Family in...

Mr Diehl and Fred are you guys gonna make the trek??

I'll see if I can get Billy McLaughlin to bring his bus and we'll bring a PA and do a little music for Y'all.

If that's okay with the folks in charge that is...

Lookinf forward to it...

Welcome Barrons! Yes, the location is Moose Lake which is right on !-35 about 30 miles south of Duluth. Mea culpa. I should have mentioned that in the first place. The music sounds awesome if you guys can work that out. We are looking forward to seeing all of you.

Also all you Northern Minnesota types, the Diehls and us will be at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion at Rollag, MN Thursday - Saturday of Labor Day weekend. (www.rollag.com) in case you're interested in smelling some real coal and steam and chaff. Its quite the gathering and we've been known to enjoy a microbrew or two in the evenings after riding the steam train.

Grant, if you are able to make it, bring me a couple bottles each of Butter Ripple Schnapps and Sour Puss Green Apple Schnapps. We can't buy them down here. Ask Mark and Donna about it
if you are not familiar. They introduced us to a special treat with them which we will share with the group.  Tongue

Hope you can make it.
