We've decided to crash the rally --two Atlantans and a sometimes noisy dog. Look forward to Alumalina!

A check of the Park website shows only 11 sites left. If you are contemplating coming, better go ahead and reserve. If your plans change you can move your reservation or for a small fee just cancel. It is a popular park and often fills on the weekends.

We are still working on a bit of a schedule and a menu, but as of now we're thinking our almost famous possum bog for Friday nite so no one needs to prepare anything , just get there and relax. Saturday morning pancake breakfast, followed by a couple of informal seminars, lunch on your own, then an afternoon of open house/trailer paroozing ending with happy hour/ supper, maybe a potluck. We have some really good door prizes to give away after supper. Sunday breakfast , maybe coffey/pastries.

I will nail it all down and post more details soon. For now, just focus on getting there safely and having a good time.

As before, we will be at the mercy of the weather so prepare accordingly. If you have one of those 10x10 push up tents please bring it just in case. We will have a nice open grassy area near the center to make Rally Headquarters.

All sites have a fire ring so perhaps a central camp fire.

Remember the Park is about 10 miles from the Interstate, follow the signs. When you get to Hwy 21, turn left, go about 3 miles, turn right on River Road, continue app 5 mile to the entrance on the left.

It is a bit remote (a good thing) so pack in what you need (you won't need much).

Fishing, paddleing, walking, biking. All good.

There seems to not be any "typical" weather anymore, especially this year, but September is "typically" still fairley warm in mid SC. The campground is heavily forested and sometimes it seems even hotter down there.



We will post more details later. Things are shaping up for another splendid time and we look forward to seeing everyone.

John

An extra treat

There is a full moon on Sept 19, so a big moon all weekend. A beautiful site rising over the Lake.

OK folks, glad you're coming. I had already inquired about you two with a mutual low country friend, who reported they hadn't heard, so glad to hear from you.

Definately see you soon.

Gary, I can bring some nice, kiln dried wood scraps from the shop. They burn up sorta fast but burn hot. And they make good starter wood for the big wood.

Possum John
