Although it is only November, I have booked all of the camp sites for next years out-trips to Crotch Lake. I was able to get all of the sites we wanted except for the last night of Session #3. The bookings just opened yesterday afternoon!

I was at camp on Thursday/Friday last week as I was accepting a donation from the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada, Upper Canada Region to purchase some equipment for camp. The leaves were at their peak and just beginning to fall. It was a heavy frost Thursday night and below zero in the morning. It is fun to be at camp in the fall - too bad we could not run camp then. Such a wonderful time of year. 

Tripod did it again - deleted my old posts.
