    My wife will be shopping for the weekend so if'n ya'll wanna come over Friday Night, we could get to Ks rocks at a decent hour on the morning of the 7th.

    Afterward we could either stop in Iola for dinner or have a cookout. I have some firewood for a back yard fire, and have been cleaning up the dog poo daily.

    Bring and air mattress for first come first serve floor space. [MENTION=87244]gmanpaint[/MENTION] already called dibs on the big spare bed but I also have a spare twin bed, and a sofa.

    Bring your refreshment of choice. Since the wife is away this will probably not be a "family" friendly event. Plan accordingly please. ;)

    If we run out of room here, I copied the list of area facilities.





    The official campground for Kansas rocks Park is Lake Francis.

    http://www.lakefrances.net/

    I guess they rent cabins and RV's

    If you have a camper, there is a campground with electric and dump station 6 blocks from our house, in the city park. $5.00 per night for electric, but No tents allowed.

    I am not sure if the cabin rental is for an overnight or day only use.

    Or pitch tents on the front yard.

    Yes! :)

    Need to give some of the ks crew a call in case they don't see this. Jakebrake & I was thinking smorr that weekend, but i'm sure this will be easier for his crew to get too.

    Been so long since I have been able to wheel with you guys, i'm glad your doing this!

    If somebody wants to join us, but doesn't have a trail rig ATM, I have room for one passenger. Said passenger has to agree to being a co-pilot/spotter. :D

    Thanks Jon. Getting a cochlear implant so I can actually hear instead of playing the guessing game. Been a little off my guesses lately! LOL!

    I look forward to seeing this thread updated with awesome pics of everyone having a great time!

    Well I'm getting a great bday present. :) My beautiful, wonderful, sweet wife said that since my bday is the 4th, she's donating to the funds necessary for the trip (LOL though she won't be going).

    Now I just have to get the plans made... Make sure the truck is ready, etc.

    We were just talking about what to do for dinner on Friday.

    Benji & I will be there, but not until 6-7pm. We were thinking of going to Chanute for dinner but hey, if your cooking/bringing dinner, even better! :D
