    What gives, planners? We doin this?

    *IAB edit - Per TreeSaw:*

    Kingdom Trails, East Burke, Vermont
    Algonquin Lodge, Route 114

    Booked! I should have the lease agreement in my inbox when I get home

    I have the lodge Friday night (check in is after 2pm), Saturday night and Sunday night (check out is noon on Monday). I'll post up more details in a bit but thus far I know:

    1) Bring warm stuff!!! October is chilly up north!
    2) a Firkin of beer won't last long with our crew!
    3) Friday food on your own
    4) Saturday Breakfast, snacks and Dinner (with dessert) will be provided
    5) Sunday Breakfast, snacks and dinner will be provided
    6) Monday breakfast will be provided

    Menu is TBD but I am thinking cooking inside won't be bad because it's MUCH cooler in the fall.

    Cost will be $75 (or less) for everything!

    I'm definitely interested in going back for Fall m'fest. There's also a woman who started riding with me this summer who's interested in going with me. We might be interested in arriving Thurs night so we can get a full day of riding in on Friday, if that's an option!

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    We have the time off, and I'm claiming the second bedroom when the lodge is confirmed.

    I'd be excited about that, if the sport course didn't utilize fun run or some section of it...barf.

    I *believe* we are confirmed for Columbus Day Weekend...Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night (if we want it). I will know 100% tomorrow and will post for sure but were 95% in on the lodge and if not, I will make other accommodations for us for the same weekend.

    How many people will be there? I might bring a firkin of something if there are enough people to drink it.

    Are we confirmed? I'm interested in hitting Bromont on Sunday this time if anyone is in with me.

    Right now I'm thinking of Millstone on Friday on the way up, KT Saturday, Bromont Sunday and Monday I'll be closing my camp on Lake Champlain. Anybody that wants to hit Bromont with me and needs a place to crash can come with me to the lake after, there are a couple of beds or we can find some space for an air mattress if needed.
