Alumalina update

The campground has some sites set aside for us, all pull thrus. If you would like to reserve, tell them you are with the Airstream group, they will book you in one of them. If you don't want to reserve, don't worry, there will be plenty of sites, still in the same area (the Maple section), probably in the same row.
They have 20 -30 -50 amp, water, sewer. There may be some other folks scattered around in the area but for the most part it will be ours. Park anywhere you want, the sites are all pretty much the same. You can probably stop by the office, plunk down the green backs, go park, then walk over and tell them which site.
Exit onto Carowinds Blvd from I77. Don't enter Carowinds itself, continue about 1/2 mile, see the big wooden roller coaster on your right. turn at the lite. There is a sign for Camp Wilderness.
There are plenty of gas stations, restaurants, quick sacks, even a discount beverage store, all close by. It's not exactly isolated there.
Susan will have a big pot of homemade soup for Friday nite, and I am still planning to fry up some fish & chips late Saturday afternoon. Call it early supper. If you have a favorite something, bring it. If you don't, just bring yourself. That will be plenty good enough.
I have a 10 x 10 push up tent, perhaps if anyone else has one, might be nice. Lets hope for some splendid weather, but just in case, tents could be handy. There are no shelters there, and the lodge/office closes at 7pm.
So, come on, don't worry, be HAPPY! Let me know if you need any info. John

They ruff you, then they cuff you, then they take you off to jail, no picture on a poster, no reward and no bail. Now I wish that I was somewhere other than here, sittin' in some honky tonk, sippin' on a beer. That great shopping cart screw up, cost me two good years. Jimmy

We surely hope it will work out for you & Lynn to come. Hate to have to sip on that good, aged, smooth, smokey single malt all by myself! And we'd love for you to bring your keyboard along too.

Sure got it on the calendar, John. You've got my mouth watering. Maybe we can drum up some other musicians and have a jam session...

And ah One, and ah Two, and ah Three (of us are trying to make it there).

Jamming sounds like my kind of fun, if we don't have a computer tied to the sound system...

I put my request in for time off, and we will make it if approved. We've never been to Charlotte, so it could be fun exploring too.
