    I camped there as well for a couple of nights. I also remember the storm that came through Thursday night, with a very leaky tent. UGH.

It was our first dragon and ill say it was one of the best experiences. Everyone was very friendly and helped us with any questions we had. thank you all and can't wait for next year! Well be better prepared next time...

    Haha it's okay I have the red 04 jcw. I have a white roll bar in it and 15" wheels if that rings a bell? But no I don't think we did. I went on the ice cream run though. Me and my Gf stayed in camp site 15 across from two big RV's

    You should have been there last year when the tornadoes went across the Dragon... that made for more than a few leaky tents that night.

    Amazingly I slept right through it, but I think that my sound sleep was aided by being off of the ground, several layers of heavy-duty canvas on the trailer's tent and a bit of over indulging during the brew swap. :D

    We'll have site 20 and probably 19 maybe even 18 as well next year. You should come visit for some really good peach cobbler and ice cream! :D
