Ucamp 2019 Rally pictures and discussions

it would be a good idea of centralizing general photos and stories at the rally here.  Yes?

    @Verna can you share a cost for sink replacement? Is it pretty much plug and play?

    I have not received a bill yet (it was completed late Friday), and I did have other work done also.

    @Verna New sink looks great! That Apache pop up made me swoon though, I’ve always had a soft spot for those. And that tow vehicle is a perfect match. 😊

    @N7SHG_Ham, I didn’t see the second part of your question. The sink is not quite plug and play. They had to drill a 4” hole (I think).  Here’s one “in progress” photo.

    They were talking on FB about the soggy conditions.  How is it?  Also, it was implied that there were some unhappiness perhaps.  I can't see the [email protected] community not making the best of it...  Allison sounds stressed maybe?  Since we can't go, DW is busy putting up a different command strip basket up front by the sink for charging devices.  Also, we  are putting on one of those shower door stickers..

    A quiet Sunday morning at WinklePleck. The grass is either green or washed out from the previous storms (then covered by straw to help with the mud). An overcast skies for the day, and a possibility of afternoon storms on Monday. 

    Sunny Day is having fun because there are many dogs her size—she gets to play!

    @TerryV6, it is soggy in some places, wet in others, but mostly dry. I

     will have to dig two Legos out of the ground Saturday because I read the tip to late from @Dalehelman to be never the Legos right side up in moist ground. Yup, they sink below the ground very quickly.
     
    Allison had to stop changing spots for campers because she ran out of extra sites. There’s only so many sites here, and the extras are gone. There’s no need for anyone to get upset, just “Camp On”. We’re good at making due with what Mother Nature gives it, or we get used to it.  It’s camping and that’s what we camp here to do 😉

    Looks like the sites are well marked this year, making the initial site location much easier. Seems like each year the nüCamp folks get better at organization and simplification. Kudos to them, and thanks for the pics @Verna.

    Yes, @dragonsdofly Allison did come up with a great way to mark the sites.

    Thanks Verna,  Elsie is a wonderful person.  She helped us last year and bore up well with all the demands.  How did you get a buggy ride?

    I think the idea is that the "legos" leveler blocks that come with some models have a top and bottom and the bottom is great for hard ground but cuts in a bit.. flipping them upside down so that the present more surface area to the ground and do not "cut in" like "cookie cutters" is the tip.

    I have two different types of blocks and one type has no "flat area" so I need to put a bit of wood or other on the bottom to prevent this

    I asked last year, and reminded her this year!  I unfortunately, due to liability concerns and time constraints, she cannot give everyone a ride—sorry!

    Good morning!  Got a 5:30 am start - it’s pretty much me the dog walkers and the guys with the honey wagons - yes they started at 6 am!

    UCamp 2019 at Winklepleck Campground got off to a nice start yesterday.  We thought we got here early, but as it turns out, the vast majority beat us - some arriving days earlier. 


    After check in, we set up quickly and managed to beat a downpour!  But, the next few days are scheduled to be a beauty and things will dry up nicely.



    It was nice to see a map indicating the hometowns of attendees  (@TerryV6, I think us forum folks suggested that).

    So, We were rewarded Friday with warm and sunny weather which helped reduce the mud pits.  In the afternoon, many women participated in a Solo Women Traveler session lead by Jenn Grover, Amanda Evans, Jean Handford and Verna.  These ladies shared their wisdom and we came away with a lot of good ideas about how to safely travel and camp alone with confidence!


    Breakfast offered large quantities of cream filled, maple glazed pastries.  Then we all took a nap!  (Allison behind the counter.)


    Nate and his tractor was available to pull your TaB to higher ground.


    The evening closed with a catered meal by Bahler Pizza and musical entertainment by on site campers.





    nuCamp owner Joe Mullet and family and other nuCamp workers joined in.




    I forgot to mention - nuCamp provided free WiFi!  It was a little spotty, but it worked!  So, mark your calendars for next year as uCamp 2020 is scheduled June 22 - June 27.

    Thanks Jenn!  Forgot to mention, there were lots of well behaved dogs this year!  It was really fun hearing everyone’s pet stories.
