To all my sacred and honored repeat offenders, you all know much of this event is the same, so feel free to jump to the very bottom of the details section, and thanks for coming with us for the umpteenth time, again!
For all the fresh-blood/new victims..... <bwuahahaha>! Just kidding-- but, if you have never attended, or should you be simply needing a refresher, please pay close attention to this in its entirety and monitor our updates to avoid any issues/hangups and avoid faux pas :
We've reserved the right to make this trip Invite-Only due to over capcity issues in the past. Sorry.
****This is a fun, laughing, story-telling, yard-game playing, bon-fire burning, stumbling to assemble your tents, paddling down the river, camping under the stars, sleep deprivation, (mostly loud) weekend. Be forewarned this is NOT Grandma's camping trip****
This is a 3-day "luxury" (aka-Glamping'ish) camping & canoeing trip to the center of Florida with some of the funnest people you know/will get to know.
**All use of cooking appliances and surfaces (grills, BBQ's, Fire pits, pots, pans, skillets tongs), Canoes, Life-jackets, Oars, guaranteed Campsite, and gear transport will be provided for you included in the cost of the trip.

---Arrive at your leisure to CAMP SITE#2. Stake out your tent site & set up. After getting situated, the drinking ensues and grill fest commences as everyone begins to BBQ lunch/dinner. A bonfire is created, and we continue socializing/partying and playing games.
Sunday 1/27/19...: wake up around 800am, as everyone enjoys a giant brunch with the remaining food left. and BACON....lots of BACON! 0_o
Break down camp site and pack it back into Luxury equipment transport shuttle (equipment will be transported back to your vehicle for you), load Canoes into river and head down stream the last 1/4mile to your vehicle.
Arrive back to your vehicles between 1pm and 3pm. Stop for lunch with the group *(optional). Leave back for Miami.
Cost for the trip, (which includes: Canoe, life jacket, paddle and seat cushion rental, campsite use, and access to all grilling/cooking appliances sixty dollars $65 (**Cash ONLY)!!!!!!
For the whole weekend!
Canoe's are assigned off of double occupancy, so if you do not have a buddy, we will assign one to you.
We also ask that every canoe provide 1-2 bundle(s) of fire wood (& optionally BACON!). This will be used as a community pot for the bonfires on Fri/Sat, as there is no wood around the sites for us to scavenge.
So, are you psyched yet?! Good, come in to reserve today! First come(pay) first served, we apologize for any inconvenience if we run out of room, but it happens every year, so you should know and plan better!! lol. Upon paying, you will be required to sign two different waivers for the weekend.
*(Again, cash only folks!)
