I might bring a stripper also.
maybe we could corral all the strippers at one cabin for some good display photos.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

WOW! We have all of the available Floating Cabins booked. And we have several of the Land Cabins booked. And some of the RV slots are booked. There are still openings and things happen and people have to cancel. But! it would be amazing if Hales Bar had to buy a No Vacancy sign because of us!

They love us.

Hey All,

I am going to have to change our reservations to "maybe". I was laid off in the spring, I have been working temporary jobs, and side jobs, and I was hoping I would have something permanent lined up by now. We still might be able to make it, but money might be too tight and we might not be able to make it, or I might not be able to request time off from a hopefully new job. I hope we are able to make it though. If we do make it we are planning on camping at the campsite across the lake call Marion Park or something. It is 2.5 miles by boat from Hales Bar. So no cabin shifting at Hales Bar will have to happen. I really hope we get to go. Will keep you updated.

Hey friends, Ive got good news and bad news...The bad news is we wont be making it to the Gathering this year. The good news is the reason we wont make it is because I finally got cleared to return to work and my training is scheduled over the same dates as the Gathering. Will miss you all but over-joyed to be finally getting back to work as a pilot 22 months after my cancer diagnosis! Count us in for 2019!

I almost let this years gathering slip by. Lucky for me Tony and his crew just finished up Fl #6 and I was able to get my name on it. If all goes well we should be arriving late Friday afternoon with the jet squirt that I purchased from Kevin a few years ago. Really looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones.

UNBELIEVABLE! The Gathering has all the cabins booked! They kinda like us. We have people in the RV lot and in some of the hotels around. and just on their boats.

Well after overcoming two major hurdles recently, all looked good for me being able to make the trip till yesterday . My aunt Debi passed away last Monday. If that was not bad enough, her memorial service was cancelled yesterday due to her oldest son who is stationed in Alaska could not make it home in time. So the service is rescheduled...for next Sunday!!!!! I am so sorry everyone. Rarely do I get the opportunity to get away to do something fun and it just wasn't meant to be this time I'm afraid. Guess I need to call the Marina and let them know floater 15 will be vacant.
