Tent (car camping as opposed to back country, which means I cheat & use an air mattress).

Just did - you might have an additional tent-squatter in your site. BTW, I'd split the cost of the site if I end up staying there.

If I am the Steve you are referring to, I will be alone. My son can't make it due to soccer & a First Lego League team meeting. My daughter can't make it either due to being 15. My wife doesn't want to camp any more . . . so I will be alone (and therefore more room for kites & gear in the car :up: ).

Think I'll look up stuff to do in the area and send the family for a little bit. I don't know if they will make 2 days on the beach. Funny thing is I always hated the beach and my wife loved it... so she got me a kite... now I love it and barely get them to go to the beach!

Chesterton has a "European " market downtown on Saturday. I think my wife might go for a while before coming out to the beach. it is from 8-2 on Saturday.
theres also a waterpark nearby if the kids like that stuff, plus Michigan city mall.

Likewise for everyone! Some of you guys (like Bruce and his lovely daughter, Prairie Brucella) I haven't seen since last year's retreat!

Has anyone heard from Dayton Bruce lately? He was one of the first people there on Saturday morning last year ... beat me, even though he had to drive past me to get there!
I decided I needed a signature line, so I wrote this.

I know right where my golf ball will be at all times, right on the end of the stake holding my kite handles!!
