    I'm in, but I might park my arse over at Energy just for the showers and electricity. I don't have a generator and I have a high maintenance reputation to uphold.

    Popular vote count next week so we can determine where to reservations.

    Showers available at Wranglers but I've never ridden the klx in my jammies...

    I'm in as long as my Christmas season workload doesn't start early this year. It will probably be my last fun weekend of the year.

    Wranglers is a horse-related campground. If we get past the gate on bikes the equestrian campers will get uber bitchy if we pull in there on bikes - too many horses and horse people usually have shotguns. Shotguns and bike tires don't mix well IMO. And horses bite.

    If I can figure out how to power my CPAP between now and then, I'm in.

    You just worry about showing up and we'll make sure you're set up. I'm bringing my small toyhauler and if needbe I can snag a generator. It we camp at Energy it's a nonissue because there are power sites there. I'll most likely ditch you diehards camping at Turkey Bay for the electrified comforts of Energy Lake but if I don't I'll make sure you have power for your CPAP.

    Maybe smoothing it at Energy instead of roughing it at Turkey is a good call for me. :D I don't mind the 20 minute ride each way.
