Greeting from Santa Rosa Beach

When I woke up this morning the outside temp was 22. By 8:30, it has only gotten up to 25. It should go up to about 45 today with beautiful sunny skies.

I think, in light of the "chilly" situation, that I will make and bring some vegitarian chilli!! And I'll bring hot sauce for those who like it spicier. (I am a mild person myself, so I'll make it reasonable)...

IF you've camped at topsail b4 pay attention.

and IF u are new 2 topsail read along.

>>>>the entrance has CHANGED<<<<

entry is NOW at the 'day use only' entry (which is the FIRST topsail entry) about 200 yards north/west of the old entry.

the FLAGS are FLYING at the day use entry and there is a BROWN STATE PARK SIGN on 30A >>>> at this spot.

they built a NEW OFFICE in the day use area and put in a multi lane check in area there.

the OLD office is to become a small store and mail room or some other thing.

BOTH gates are in/out during the day time for now, but the OLD ENTRY is to be converted to EXIT ONLY soon.

and IF u try checking in via the OLD/main entry, you will be directed back (via a looping road) to the day use area.
_____________

IF you plan to arrive after dark, call ahead for the gate/pass code.

u will need the GATE PASS CODE to get in at EITHER turn after ~6 pm.

it's a basic key pad and 4 digit code that changes monthly....
_____________

for folks coming south via the DEFUNK springs exit on 331...

turn RIGHT (west) onto 98

about 6 miles west, is the cr 30A turn (left lane)

~1/4 mile after turning LEFT on to cr30A there are 3 R hand turns...

1. is a brick paved DEAD END

2. is the DAY USE ONLY entry (THIS IS NOW THE OFFICIAL ENTRY TO TOPSAIL and CHECK IN AREA)

3. is marked as the main entry but it is NO LONGER the ENTRY POINT.
____________

follow the brown fla state park signs to topsail, the BROWN SIGNS are ALL UPTO DATE.
____________

IF u need groceries on the way, there's a NEW PUBLIX about 2 miles west of the 331/98 turn.

BIG PARKING LOT, easy to get into/out and open till 10 pm.

it's called the 'south walton beach' publix and is in a NEW strip mall/north side.

they have a fresh supply of snow shovels, mukluks and kamiks...

and a liquor store.

cheers
2air'

Hedonistic Bohemian here (aka CB Genrich). I will be heading south from Atlanta tomorrow morning, to beat the freezing precip. I may just go straight to Topsail SP. Figure what the heck. My reservation is for #165 Fri/Sat/Sun. Dude just now said some folk were already arriving, that he was looking at two Airstreams as we spoke. Makes me want to get all the way there ASAP.

As for the weather, I figure to come there FOR THE WEATHER! I live in my Airstream 24x7x365, and so living in it there is 10 degrees warmer than living in it here in Atlanta. I will be glad for the extra degrees as it was 15 here last night and will be tonight as well.

Not sure I can properly edit the list, but maybe someone else can fix it up for me with my stuff:

CB Genrich, full timing out of Atlanta
Site #165, 2007 Safari 27' FB
Potluck - Brown Rice with Black Beans and Cilantro
Sunday Breakfast - Espresso & Cafe Americano
Raffle - Not my thing, trying to get rid of stuff
Misc Items - Charm, wit, good looks

You can identify me easily because I have "available" written all over my face, just so there's no room for doubt. Sorry guys, women only. If you don't see it, let me know because the ink may have faded and it means I need to get it redone.

Washed the truck this afternoon. 15 minutes total at the self-service place and the rinse water had iced on the truck before I drove away.

Looks like all we need is some luck in the morning starting the truck and we'll be on our way.

Updated map. It is painful to remove so many names of friends.

Bohemian -- We can do a quick touch up job with that blue spray paint that's for "huffers in denial".

Someone please remind us about internet service at the park. Connection at each site? Wi-fi? And if Wi-Fi is available, signal strength is the loop.

We haven't brought our laptop to previous rallies, so we hadn't investigated it.

Thanks.

Don't count us out yet. I had a CAT scam yesterday. Then the doctor ordered an ultra sound for today. I won't know results till late Wednesday or early Thursday. If the doc says I'm OK we will leave ASAP. Also we are in for a snow storm so I would like to get out of Dodge before that hit.

See ya soon I hope.
