    There are plenty of trees at the sites. I don’t believe a hammock would be a problem

    Go for the sites further back.......or there are some great spots to hang by the lake. Excellent hammock spots

    Clark hammocks has a solution for that. Not cheap.

    Pricing is up, I am holding the pre covid pricing. The last great deal. Please note the refund rule, if you pay and do not come I donate it to the charity and the park.
    Sorry, been busy at work and details are finally hammered out. Agreements in hand. Wood arranged. I am leaving shortly for a week in the woods and no electronics. Yeah, I am that guy who enjoys that.

    There is a leanto available, the first one to PM me will have their name on it. You will not hear from me for a week, but I will know who was in first. You will be notified on 8/2 of your winning bid. If it is Monday already, you are probably too late. There is probably some law, but no money changed hands yet so I plead ignorance until then.

    Hammocks are fine, tents are fine, RV's no. Cannot remember the last time I slept on a rock or root or some other such annoyance. If you are coming for a couple days, arriving Wednesday, just pay the Friday fee. If you are having so much fun you can't leave, you can pay the difference at the park. I try to be easy.

    Any questions, I will answer in August. See you in VT, looking forward to it.

    My stupid @$$ just realized I stayed at the campground this is being hosted at in September while on the NEBDR week or so back. Small world, and the campground seemed weirdly churchy like. Thought maybe my degenerate self showed up at some church event. Anyhow, least I know where it is and I saw several riders about. I will throw my money your way Friday, sir.

    nope, definitely not a church like event .
    bon fire conversations are definitely not suitable for all audiences .

    I hope not, cause last week going through on the NEBDR it was sort of strange.

    Can you push out the dates of Cromag one week? These dates coincides with the Ammonoosuc TR and I was hoping to do both events. Thanks in advance:)

    Haha, I' sure no one will have a problem rearranging their schedules for you.
    Worth a shot anyway I guess.
    Sometimes you just have to pick one.

    Hey, another Cromag virgin here want to introduce myself, the schwartz is IN.

    Thursday
    Veggie
    Trailer

    Here's one I'm almost scared to ask, anyone bringing kids? Not that I've ever seen anyone bring their children to any ADV event I've been to, ever, but ... I really want to take them camping in Vermont!

    Maybe better, slightly different questions, a: is this just a terrible idea? What would Fred Rogers do? and b: is there some section of the campgrounds that will be slightly more secluded from the most... extreme of the shenanigans?

    I checked the park website (figured maybe I would try to handle this myself and not complicate matters for the organizers), but there are no sites available... perhaps Cromag has consumed them all

    How old are the kids? Have you taught them to swear? You might want to start now as they're gonna hear it.

    cromag has the whole camp ground rented for this event . we have all the sites , and are the only group in there that weekend
    you would be registering through the 1st post on this thread .
    you can be as close to the common areas
    ( bon fire by the lake , or morning coffee by the bath house )
    or as far away as you want

    i would say that as long as you didn't bring a child around the camp fire , you " might" be ok ,
    but this is definitely an adult type event , there is adult language and beverages by the camp fire .
    which is at least 1/2 the experience of the event . so you would be missing out if you didnt go to the fire . ( but its not kid friendly)

    I already advised him that its fine, other than the campfire conversations of course. Overall , they have the whole place to themselves and the lake to swim in, which is spectacular.

    I was going to suggest that he get a seat near you and @otherwife down at the fire for the full experience. Think of the stories that kid could tell.:lol3
