Camping 2006 Info Page
Mar.30,2006 : Spring is in the air! it's -10 C outside & I'm getting ready to start up the 2006 version of this site.
Apr.1, 2006 : +15 C Outside...This is much better ! ...Send me your availability .
Apr.6,2006: I'll probably go ahead & reserve a site at Wellesley Island soon , since it is filling up fast. But we can still try out a place on the Canadian side & I can cancel the American reservation. George may once again have some difficulty getting the time off, ( he often must work on Saturdays ) so I suggested that if that's the case then he & Moose could always drop in on us for the day. Perhaps I will take off a Monday & stretch out the weekend a bit. Updated the Trip status and Calendar.
Apr.16,2006 : At Wellesly Island the available dates for the first part of the summer are ( in my order of preference ):
Site B14 : June 17 & 24 th weekends ( not available before this date, and not much after )
Site D20 : June 10 th weekends ( not available after this date )
Sites B1 & B2 : June 3rd weekend ( not available after this date )
Sites B6 & B7 : June 3rd weekend ( not available after this date )
Apr.18,2006: Unless anyone objects I'll reserve B14 for the June 23/24 weekend ( Friday night and Saturday night ) Here in Quebec we get the Friday off , so we can get there Friday afternoon to set up the tent & be ready for the Ontarians ( is that a real word ? )
Apr.25,2006: Looks like Meacham Lake might be a possibility... so I added a few links & info on the Locations page. Also added some links for Rollins Pond ,which is in that same area. I will try to get a good area map with the various Campgrounds indicated. Updated the Friends Page.
May.7.2006: I tried to reserve a site at Meacham (Most of the sites by the water are gone ) But I ran into some problems. Site #82 was available ( it looks like it's on a small river ) so I filled in the form # gave my Visa # but I didn't get a confirmation of the transaction. I see now that site #82 has been taken for 2 nights ( June 23./ 24 ) but I'm not sure if it's for us. I sent an e-mail to get a confirmation & if so I will try to also reserve the site next to it ( # 80 )
May.8.2006: If I can't get a site at Meacham Main campground, does anyone want to go to the west side ? It looks like the washrooms over there are just Outhouses but we might be able to have a site on the water.
May.9.2006: I made reservations for 2 nights, Jun.23 & Jun.24 ( Fri./Sat. ) at Meacham. I got 2 sites next to each other, #82 is a Tent site & #80 is a Trailer site ( not sure if it has electricity, but I expect it to be large enough ). They look like they are on a small river ( good ) but they also look like they are close to the road ( bad ) ... Oh well, we'll have to do a mapping expedition once we get there & be ready for next year. We'll also have to check out the west side of the lake .( the side we almost drove into, if my memory serves me well ;-)
May.23.2006: Richard C.( he's the guy that is letting me use some space on his Hockey web site ) added a header to the camping forum page ( Merci Richard, c'a semble etre une site prive pour les "Richards" ;-)
Jun.07.2006: Added a Directions page. ( still under construction )
Jun.16.2006: Happy Birthday Steve. Click on "My Pal Foot Foot" if you dare ;-)
Jun.25.2006: Had a great time! I'll place the Photos on the site when I get a chance ( perhaps tomorrow )
Jun.26.2006: Added Page 1 of the photo gallery with some photos from Mr.T.
Jul.03.2006: Added Page 2 of the photo gallery with the photos from my camera. The panoramic didn't work out this time, but I'll try to salvage the photos & assemble it by hand (may take a while, check back later). Also working on Movies & Expenses.
Jul.04.2006: Power failure during update of site. repaired corrupted pages. ( I hope :-( ...let me know if anything doesn't work )
Jul.05.2006: Working on the Expenses. send me your info S.V.P. & I'll present it on this page.
Jul.13.2006: Added a second Panoramic ( although it's a bit rough )
Jul.18.2006: Added a video clip: Frisbee Knife.
