It's time once again to begin planning for the 3rd Annual Winter run to Sicily Island. Affectionately nicknamed the Freeze Your Ass Off Meet after last years trip. Had an awesome turnout last year and looking forward to an even better one this time around.
The dates have been set so mark your calendars for December 27-29. I know it can be a hectic time of year but hopefully you'll be able to get away!

For those of you that haven't been there it's $40 per weekend per driver and $10 per passenger. There is a bathhouse with a few power hookups and space for tents nearby.
Here is the number to call when you reach the park. That way Dennis can come unlock the gate and give you your trail tag. If you call about 30 minutes out he'll meet you there.

As far as food goes if you have a small grill bring it on up, can't remember if we had one where we camped or not. Also, there is a bathhouse at the park entrance for us to shower and all. Bring sandwich stuff and Water/Soda/Beer if you want some as well, the nearest store is about 15-20 minutes and it doesn't have the greatest selection.
