For the second year in a row - I am willing to host TPMG'ers on my campsite one weekend in August. I have to work out the date- but currently I am looking at 23-25th. This may be subject to change, but for the moment that is the plan.

This will be a tent camping situation - I can host roughly about 4 tents on the site - there is a per night fee which is similar to the fee's at provincial parks - but cheaper, because you are a visitor on a leased campsite. If we have enough people - we might have to look into reserving another campsite.

The end of August is a good time for colder nights, and morning mist, so we will probably get up in the morning and go out for sunrise. There are lots of good vantage point for landscape and wildlife photography. We have cooking facilities on site, including the campfire pit.

Please let me know if you are interested - and depending on the response, then I will post something official.

Well last year was a good one David, in spite of the goofy weather. Count me in.

I'm interested! I think I was away for work last year. End of August is open and no work travel!

I wish I could, but unless my work shift changes before then, I can't get there in a reasonable time on a Friday night. According to Google Maps, it would be 9:30, without allowing for traffic or any other stops.

ok Jordan and Paul -- check. Janet a possible no go -- but if you wanted to come late - that could be arranged, and we could put up a tent for you in advanced - I have several tents you could sleep in for the weekend.

I'll have to see what happens with work, but at this point it's not likely that I will be able to do this.

I'd be interested in coming too. It would have to be after work so it would be late. Can drive anyone else from Toronto too, leaving late.

How late?


I'm off at 6:00pm, then have to get Kieran so I would likely be leaving Toronto /Scarborough around 7:00pm ish. Not arriving until 10:30 - 11:00pm depending on traffic. Do you want a ride or co-ordinate a time?

The 23rd is actually Chris's 30th Birthday, so no he will not be there that day.

Hi guys, just checking in - all is still a go for Friday August 23rd. My plan is to leave in the afternoon from downtown at 1pm. So if anyone is looking for a ride with me - we can arrange from there. And so far the list is:

1. Paul (Bynx)
2. Jordan
3. Maureen - Kieran?
4. Pam
5. Me

So just let me know if anyone is a no-go, or if there are others interested, let us know. We should also start to formulate who is driving and who is taking who.

I am still up for this and am still leaving after work. So I will be arriving late with Kieran.

Leaving from Bayview & Eglinton area at 6:00pm with a stop in Scarborough to get Kieran and on my way. Around 7:00pm.

I have space available for anyone needing to leave late.

Janet I am fine if you let me know the Thursday or Friday what your work schedule is like. You can PM me or even call me.

1. Me
2. Pam
3. Paul /BYNX
4. Maureen & her son.

More are welcome if you don't have plans for this weekend - we can accommodate at least another couple of tents on the site.
