I brought my assigned food (especially fish and corn), my splitting maul and a hatchet, some kindling which is sometimes hard to find on these sites, some pots and grills, tongs, plus my tent sleeping bag and clothes and my standard camping kit.
There were eleven of us and we all had a great time. On Saturday I was gone for the whole day because I went to a camp reunion (to be described later). The rest of the crowd went to the Saint-Gaudens Memorial which by all accounts was pretty interesting. He was a sculptor and some of his stuff appears on some US gold coins. On Sunday we went canoeing and kayaking on the river. We chose to go upstream which was also against the wind. We stopped on an island in the middle of the river and had lunch snacks there. Was it in Vermont or New Hampshire?

Our Camp site
There was a small group of lesbians at another site who some of us visited. They said there was going to be a volley ball game. I asked if they were going to play and they said only if the gay boys come. I explained that we would probably be quite busy cooking and eating.
Cooking and eating - that's what we do. Dinner friday was mostly stuff people had brought such as the bean/cashew/canteloupe salad I brought - there were lots of fresh vegetables and salad. Breakfasts were apple and peach pancakes, sausages, oatmeal, eggs and vegetables. Dinner saturday was grilled burgers, hot dogs, tuna and sword fish, corn, various vegetables, peach cobbler. Dinner sunday was more burgers and sausages, corn, fish stew (cod and hake), and lots of vegetables. There was lots of coffee including beans and a grinder.
Ah lots of fun.... And probably again next year....
