    Yes I'm game and I believe Charli is too but not sure. It looks like we will be horsepooling and if Idid is bringing an extra horse then I only need to bring one extra too. Charli and I will most likely be camping together but we can have a minor or two as well. Are we set on the first weekend in August then? I didn't catch a true date. I'm 23 so I can book a site and I will most likely have a 16 ft + trailer so book me for the longer trailer site. I don't need any fancy hookups either and Honey you can be my extra horse rider. Appy talk to Idid and see if you can hammer out some details on borrowing his extra horse.

    P.S- If I still have my mustang that I am training and he's got enough miles/skills on him he will most definitely be coming along on this trip =)

    And on a random side note. Anyone know any good instructors in or near Richmond, Indiana that would be willing to take on a 5 yr old girl for english lessons? If you do please PM me with their info. Thanks! (I'm searching for a friend's daughter).

    Okay, this sounds like it's coming together then, as a plan! Looks like we can book either 3 or 4 sites? Depending on where we are, if we go primitive we can book the four northern most sites on the campground, they are kind of set in a cul de sac so makes easier access for the longer trailers to get in and out of, plus that would give us sort of a section all grouped together. NE and Charli can share a site, then HOC and I, maybe Paintspwn and Honeysuga, and Appy and Idid? Or split into three at each site, there should be room? And Pidge mentioned her friend and friend's mom is coming right, so they could share a site? (I need to read back through the threads!) So they can share the fourth site, the only thing in question is if Pidge's friend who needs the hook ups for her is coming. For those borrowing horses, remember you still need to help out with cost of transport of your borrowed horse, and pay for your bridle tags! We can split the costs of the campsites among those camping on each site.

    Idid - I think we are going for the primitive sites, though if anyone NEEDS hook ups we can potentially try instead for camping at the far south end of the primitive sites instead so we are as close together as possible. I'll call up the head office tomorrow and confirm their campsite layout hasn't changed, and set up a deal so we can book our sites together and they know we are all from one party. *lol*

    NE - I know several very good instructors, but they are all north of Indianapolis, Richmond is south of it so I will ask around. The Richmond/Bloomington area is big time horse country so there are bound to be quite a few good instructors that should be local to your friend. I'll ask the ones I know for some recommendations.

    How close are you to the IN border? I'll be going via Fort Wayne on my way south, which is what, 15 min from Oihio's western border? If you are really close I might be able to pop over and pick you and your horse up - I have room for one more horse in the trailer I'm using.

    If that doesn't work...and this is a big IF....I'm getting in 3 horses this week from a guy who can't take care of them anymore. I haven't seen them first hand yet, but have been told they have been well cared for, aren't skinny, etc, and are perfectly sound. Two QHs and a mini. Im told the chestnut mare, who is a 5 year old, is still pretty green, but the big black gelding is 12, supposedly rides and drives both great and the gelding has been trail ridden extensively. Again, I have not yet met these horses first hand, so I can't say if they might be suitable. I can't say how they will be for now, but if either of the QHs prove to be decent enough and level headed (and of course sound!) I might potentially be able to bring an extra horse.

    I'll be moving to New Lebanon, Ohio. It's about 2 and a half hours from Fort Wayne (I think). Let me ask my husband about it and I'll let you guys know for sure. Maybe we can find someone to watch the kiddos and he can come too : )
