    I just received the reservation confirmation mail. Two weeks until BACONFEST!!!

    One thing to note from their email and why you might want to pack some earplugs:

    Great Blue Herons can be found nesting in the pine trees in the group camp area at Devil's Lake from mid-March until the end of July to early August. The young hatch late April to early May and stay in the nest until late July/early August. During the time the young are in the nest, they can be quite noisy and their "chatter" will continue day and night.

    Yes ear plugs are a good thing to have. I camped in the group sites twice last spring with my Scout troop and didn't have any the first time but made sure to pack them the second time we were there. The Herons are kind of cool during the day but can be rather obnoxious in the middle of the night.

    Who has tried Kwik Trip's bacon? Two for $4.58 (even if only 12 oz) is still a good deal, but only if it's good. Anyone?

    We have bought Kwik Trip bacon often. It's pretty good... Can't beat the price :-)

    Herons are crazy loud! Thanks for the heads up on the earplugs. See you all soon!

    This picture shows the location of the overflow parking (and that it is not far of a walk) plus the trail we'll take for our Saturday hike to West Bluff.

    Which site are we in? Maybe it was in a previous post, or website, or blogpost, or spreadsheet, or on MyFace, but being dicklexic I can't find it.
    Not all who wander are lost.

    Aaaah, you didn't watch the video I emailed to you! (It's an excellent watch!) I never post the group site publicly. I'll PM you.

    I promised you a sneak peek of what Dutch (from Dutchware Gear) sent as prizes for Bacon Bite Night. It's one-of-a-kind BACON camping gear!
