Lake George NorthEast Truck Camping Jamboree Report

The Lake George NorthEast Jamboree in New York was last week – August 24-28, 2016 – at the Lake George Escape Campground.  About 70 truck campers gathered for the event.  This was definitely not a typical rally being that there was a murder mystery, a potluck of pies, and two BINGOs.

Mike Tassinari, aka Mikeee, and Joe and Marianne Zecca did a fantastic job of organizing the activities, even hiring a bus so that the rally participants could explore the nearby town of Lake George.

Wednesday night started the rally with a potluck of pies.  From blackberry to apple, several tables were filled with delicious desserts.

Thursday was registration and a Torklift All-Terrain Landing gear demonstration.  Around noon, many participants boarded a charter bus and went into Lake George for a tour of the lake on the Minne-Ha-Ha paddle wheel boat, and a tour of Fort William Henry.  The night ended with fireworks over the lake.

On Friday, the murder mystery actors got up early to attend a meeting about the event that night.  Joe Zecca gave us instructions on what to do and we had a chance to meet the fellow actors.
