Lists Galore!

I can't believe it's almost here!  Great Escape 2016 is just three days away.

Christa's house, the Lodge, the Dining Hall, tents and cabins - soon the bed assignment signs will go up and the squirrels, chipmunks and birds will have to retreat to their lairs - just when they were starting to relax after the departure of all those loud kids and counselors!

The GE Committee email list is buzzing with last minute plans, arrival times, requests for help, reminders to bring this or buy more of that.  Meals and activities for 100+ people for 4 days take a lot of planning and purchasing.  This morning I sat down with a large (18 x 20) pad of paper to make my lists of what I need to bring and buy and do before Friday morning. Even as I type this, I'm thinking of additions (and writing them on my hand since the list is downstairs.)

Are you making your lists?  Here are some reminders of important items to bring!


  1. We'll be bring 120ish pounds of turkey!

  2. I shall do my best to help eat that delicious trash can delicacy!
