We have a surprise stop for you at lunch on Sunday, and our hosts ask us to dress conservatively as follows: no low cut shirts, no shorts, and any skirts must be knee length or longer.  Other recommended potential take-alongs include sun screen, bug spray, and a small flashlight or reading light.

Wyoming Gardens - RV "Glamping" note

There will be "basic" sheets, pillows, and towels for all RV camping participants.  If you happen to prefer something more special (e.g. a particular pillow perhaps?), please do bring it along!  In addition to the showers, sinks, and toilets in the RV's, we will all have access to Wyoming Gardens RV Park's bathrooms and showers.
