Greeting from Santa Rosa Beach

You can also get LP tanks filled at Camping on the Gulf RV Park which is on the south side of US 98 about four miles west of Topsail.

Angry Cancel

We have to cancel our trip to Top Sail this yr. Our site was 166 if anyone is interested.
Keep warm and have a great time.
We have ordered a Tshirt for Dan. I'll contact Artstream about paying for it and how to get it.

Dan and Marty

Updated map. Hate it for everyone who cannot attend.

We'll be staying at Kolomoki Mounds State Park in southwest Georgia on Wednesday night, rather than coming through Montgomery on Thursday. There were 22 of 24 total spots available, so it will be both COLD and QUIET.

Tim, but is Bernard going to start? We lived in the Chicago area for a few years and I remember those really cold times where I put a droplight under the hood for added heat, the car door wouldn't unlock or if it did it wouldn't latch shut and I'd hold it while I drove, and the tires clunked for a while going down the road until the flat spots unfroze. All in all, the weather here will be ok, 45-50 degree high temps and a lot of sunshine.

Bernard says "Have some faith, man".

Actually, I rebuilt one side (leaky side) of the carburetor yesterday. The truck did start and run smoothly once I reinstalled the carb. I do have to make adjustments today as the idle speed should not be 1500 rpm.

He will be started and warmed everyday until we leave. Probably while at Topsail, too. We now travel with the battery booster, after last year's problems leaving the Canopener.

With the weather being cold (not above 50 until next Monday), we are curious what folks are planning to do with their free time. Books, boardgames, movies, etc, etc? Indoor socializing, joint meals, and the open local attractions (WalMart, Redbar, Ace Hardware)?

We'll be walking the dogs quite a bit as usual, make quick trips to the beach, and ride the bikes (maybe), but it's hard to get motivated to sit in a trailer most of the time.

Maybe we can snag one of the open spaces to build a community fire pit. Run extension cords to power all those electric blankets. Maybe put out "dance cards" and what-not.

At the very least -- the ticks shouldn't be out this year.

Larry and I were in FL in 1989, sailing the Choctaw Bay! My mom and dad had a house on Rt.10 at Niceville..(.Moosetags may know where that is.) All the local folks were running around in parkas and worrying about going south...TX and Mexico...to get warmed up.Traffic was a nightmare for them....the dreaded black ice. WE, Ohioans, were all in sweatshirts and wondering what the heck was with them! LOL! Don't wimp out! You can do it! Have fun at the rally! Making friends will keep you warm. Wish we were there. It is 26 degrees here and we have about 6 in. of snow and it is still falling.
If you chicken out, remember that Springstream rally in n. GA is coming up in April. Join us there!
