JeepConn1: Meet-n-greet Oct 5-7, Water's Edge Campground, Lebanon, CT
Let's get this going Jeepers..Come one come all to a Jeep Fall meet and greet..Fall Camping at it's best at Water's Edge Campground October 5th through 7th.
Bring your pets, bring your families, and of course bring your JEEPS!
The Specifics: Place: Water's Edge Campround in Lebanon, CT. (approx 40 minutes Southeast of Hartford) Water's Edge Family Campground - One of Connecticut's premier campgrounds Time: Anytime during the weekend...Stay all weekend and camp, or even come for a day visit..makes no difference, just COME! Costs: Brian (campground owner and good friend) has extended the following offer: 2 Tents can split a site for 40/night..Which basically means its 20/per night for you and your tent/guest. The sites are PLENTY big enough to accomodate 2 tents..There is water and electric at each site. Dont worry, we can figure out splitting the campsite tents together once you get there...no need to stress over 'who's camping next to who'..
If you have a camper or prefer to rent a park model trailer or cabin, then regular rates apply. (I will be in a popup camper)
Note: If you are a daily visitor..THERE IS A CHARGE. All campgrounds do this..You must register at the gate and pay the fee. It is what it is..remember these campgrounds are a business like anything else. Refer to the above link.
We will be in the Safari area. (There are showers and bathrooms there as well as a very large covered pavilion and 2 large fire rings. The showers and bathrooms are kept extremely clean)

Things to possibly do...Shoot your ideas over..
Good fishing lake (catch and release)..You can bring non-motorized boats/kayaks, Of course Caveman TV, adult beverages, Casinos are not far away...open to any and all suggestions..I will be recruiting (read:begging) my wife to make Chili for us on Sat nite. Its gooood :-)
So as we breath life into this event, I will add to this first post on the details and attendees...
PLEASE Do NOT plan on tearing up the campground looking for things to run over with your Jeep. Brian is a good friend and the campground is a very friendly and safe place to be. Lets keep it that way for everyone.
Questions or any other specifics I may have missed, just post em up..
Me (Todd), wife Michele and at least our 14yr old daughter Emily.
LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS GANG AND MEETING EVERYONE!
As far as when to pay etc I will check with Brian. He's pretty laid back and he may ask me just to collect. Will find out soon. Just let me know if you plan on coming for now and how many guests if any so I cam start a head count.
Oct 5-7 is good for me I would like to attend....Saturday the 6th is best, do I have to camp out overnite?
Mark yes you have to camp out overnite! (KIDDING!)
No just show up and hang out on Sat if thats your preference..
2 things to keep in mind though:..
1. The CG does have nice park models and cabins available for rental if you'd like to stay the weekend and are just not into tenting...(call the campground directly to reserve..not sure what the cost is)
2. Keep in mind the visitor fee...(just so you are not surprised) I will collect that for Brian on Saturday just to keep it simple..
