A quick call to the campground today, 20 reservations have already been made. I think we will have 25+ to show up. If you are still on the fence, don't miss the fun, jump on in and join us. Check out the first few posts for CG info and phone #.
This is just a suggestion:
5-6 Meet and greet happy hour. Let the good times begin.
6-7 Possum bog. We'll need a few early arrival volunteers to wrestle
the Possums and help get the bog ready. Thanks in advance.
7 until keep the good times rolling.
8:30-9:30 Potluck breakfast. Anything you would like to share.
Doughnuts, pastries, ham, eggs, Bloody Marys. I have
a 50 cup coffee maker.
10-12:30 Seminars : HITCHING UP: Hitch height & weight, Weight
distribution & sway control . I will be bringing my Shurline
Tongue Weight scale if you would like to measure your TW.
You may be surprised. RUNNING GEAR: Tires, Bearings and
brakes. INSURANCE: do you have what you need for your
Airstream. EXTENDED TRAVELING: Planning, budgeting,
These will be informal group discissions, led by Overlander63, Dave McCrosti, and (hopefully) Doug and Maggie. Take advantage of their knowledge and experience. We will do as much as time allows.
12:30-1:00 A quick lunch, on your own.
1:00-4:00 Open house. Show your stuff. This is strictly
voluntary participation. Look for the OPEN HOUSE sign
in the window.
4:00-4:30 Happy half hour. Squeeze in a cocktail before supper.
5:00-6:00 Fish Fry. We have the fish, premium restaurant grade fillets.
May be able to scare up some Devil Crabs too. Fries, baked
potatoe (maybe). If you have a good slaw/salad/dessert dish
please bring it along. This year we will need to collect a very
small fee to cover some of the cooking supplies.
7:00 until We have some goodies to give away. Out of Doors Mart is
sending along some items and a few other trinkets may show
8:30 Breakfast left overs
I will (hopefully) have a packet of info for everyone with more details. I also have some more of the now famous ALUMALINA t-shirts available at about the cost of a 12 pack of cheap beer.
There is no pavilion or shelter to use so once again we will be at the mercy of the weather. Last year had some drama, hopefully not this year. If you have a push up tent/canopy and have room to haul it we may need it. I only have 1 - 10x10 this year. It would be nice to have 6 to hook together.
So....that's about it for now. Less than 3 weeks away.
