Much to my surprise, it turns out that I will be able to partially attend this years Jambo at Fort A.P. Hill near Bowling Green, VA. I was in conflict with a co-workers vacation, but it turns out the situation is partially resolved. Preliminary plans are for me & my wife to come down for setup through maybe the first Wednesday. (July 24-28)
As we are heading to the Pocono NASCAR rally afterwords, we will be taking the Airstream. Problem we are having is that it seems campgrounds in the near vicinity of the Jambo either want you to book two weeks, or charge a very hefty amount night by night.
I'm not sure courtesy parking would be appropriate, but would be great! We basically just need a place to sleep at night.
Any suggestions are very welcome!
Additionally: I very aware that this forum is full of very diverse individuals. My responsibility at the Jambo is to coordinate the Space Exploration Merit Badge booth. I know this is a reach, but if anyone is interested in helping as staff, I would love to talk to you!
In addition to the science part, in 2005 we built 3,000 model rockets! We really could use the help!
