    It is early in the year. We have plenty of time to pick a date. First we need a list of those sincerely interested and realistically able to attend an event.

    No. I will exercise my freedom of association and avoid so indiscreet individuals as here. I have corresponded with those that I would enjoy meeting.

    From your previous posting, my understanding is that the Town only has a general prohibition on Open Carry and not a Park specific one.Rock Island is the closest State Park and I am not aware of any County Parks on the islands. School House Beach is far from any Gun Free School Zone as is thepublic sand beach on the island. One of the beaches would be the natural choice.

    I understand. Discrete in public but indiscrete when hiding behind your keyboard. You are critical of those who registered on this board with names other than our given but refuse to associate freely in public with them. This makes you far more AnonyMouse than I would or could ever be.

    please stop fighting. were supposed to be a united group. differences of opinion fine, but jeez. i think it would be exciting to go to an island, i haven't been to one since we went to florida some years back. i know the kids will like taking a ferry boat over, they sure know what they want to transport cars over huh? once you get there, do you just park your car and walk around? we plan to close the shop one saturday a month to give us a minor summer. i'm working on the logistics of getting there; go up to the camper, stay a night, then jump up to this island. i will have to start saving now to pull this off, but i think it would be realy neat; island open carry event!

    I would recommend taking the Cherry Train as a first time visitor. You get to sit back and let someone else drive you to see many of the interesting sites. You then can drive around yourself once you decide where you wish to visit at your leisure. The island is large enough where you would not wish to walk everywhere.

    There is a campground with small cabins for a reasonable fee. Lodging definitely does not break the bank on the island.

    We should be united, but every group has a bad apple.

    We are a diverse group, cultured in many ways, sarcastic and yet helpful at the same time, in a sadistic kind of way.
    I rather enjoy some of the bantering and badgering, however do agree (I am guilty too) that it does get out of hand, I will be more conscience of it.
    Given that the spoken word along with the ability to read both body and facial language is much easier, on the other hand, the written word lacks that interpretation.

    well, i hope we can unite long enough to plan something! it has been a long boring winter, nothing but work then home. i am counting on open carry events to give me a bit of a summer to enjoy, and reflect back on positively. trying to get the money together, and a reliable machine up and running to get me there is now my priority. i saw on the news the weather is supposed to start getting nice next week, so it signals to me summer is approaching, and i'd better get started on my plans to be mobile now. i missed going to the wisconsin carry meeting today, because i couldn't get a machine up to make the trip, and couldn't find a ride. i feel badly about that. i feel i missed something important, and a chance to see my friends again. i hope there will be alot of events planned within reach of me here, down in the armpit of the midwest.

    so are you saying that you don't want to meet "people like me", or that you are protecting us from "people like you". however you take it, i take it as an insult. judge a book by its over and all that..........

    Looks interesting, we have never been there. I'd have to see how much time the better half has left for vacation. We would have to make it a weekend thing. The rates on the campground don't look to bad. I don't think I can give a firm commitment right now but it's definitely something we'd consider.

    That area of Wisconsin is beautiful. Count me in! With enough advance notice I could make it and may be able to bring a few others with me from my neighborhood.
    The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the People of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -- Samuel Adams

    Today, we need a nation of Minutemen. Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.

    unfortunately i can't commit for sure due to health conditions. so if i get enough work and money saved up by then to afford the trip, and if my health allows, then i'd make it. but i can't plan that far ahead.
