John,

Yesterday on a road near my house I picked up a possum and a raccoon. I thought the raccoon would add some more flavor to the bog. We just need a skinning crew. The group is growing. We will need more possums!

Anyone for armadillo? Perhaps someone coming from Florida or Texas could bring one for added flavor.

Matt, glad to have you and Beth join us, hope you can come early and stay late.


A note to everyone: your length of stay is only limited by your site availability, which is very likely open on both sides of the weekend. So, if you have the time, come stay awhile.

John

John,

I have been in contact with Beth the last couple of days about an Associate membership in Southeastern Camping Group and mentioned this morning she and Matt might like to come to your humble spring rally? I am glad they made the decision to join in the fun at Lake Wateree SP.

The positive item about possums is they do not hibernate in the winter months. The down side is you have to get them late at night when they are out hunting for food and crossing roads. Of course you can hunt them over bait? Fresh corn in the middle of a divided highway?

When I was growing up in Oklahoma we always turned the females loose to insure future a food source. John you were correct about the country possums feeding on natural organic food. But it is tough catching possums up in the mountains once they leave the highway right a way? Maybe the possums should come from the low country? Doesn't Gary live in the Low Country of SC? I had another idea, I will start asking my Blue Ridge Mountain neighbors about the availability of ground hogs. But it may to early for them, I think they hibernate during the winter months. I will be thinking of another protein source for the possum bog?

Be Prepared

Big Hooter

Big Hooter, you sure do know your possum. Along with the other commitee chairmen, I name you Possum Chairman.

And Pam, round is good. We need a little fiberglass to keep us honest.


King Possum

35 on board, only 14 sites left

a check tonite, only 14 sites left. They will not last long so get busy if you are considering, we don't want you to miss out.

If there is anyone out there that has reserved, but hasn't posted, give us a shout so we can put you on the list, and we can idenify the non aluminum sites. If things continue, we may have 50 of the 69 sites.

Hey folks,

Just checking in from our site at Dreher Island SP. Pulled in and our neighbor was tubewannabe. We had a micro rally, campfire and some stories. They are on 43 for the rally.

Found another AS in camp this am. Windy but clear today.
