Had I not already split my site with Bob & Page a few weeks ago, its' 43' length would not accommodate Terry & Marie's 31' trailer in addition to my 22', regardless.

Have offered the use of the Interstate to Terry and especially Marie, should they be able to get in for the day and she/they need to get off their feet.

I hope they can make it.

...and as Terry will vouch (since he did the PDI), my BRAND NEW CLASSIC will be open for a "parroting" session -- as John calls it. It is deep into modification territory already. I am doing rooftop stuff...replaced the "crap" stock TV antenna with a Jack, moved the A/S AM/FM antenna two feet forward to make room for my Winegard Sat. Dish. Two antenna to go...WiFi and Cell....and 6 solar panels. Haven't figured out how I'll clean the roof. Glenn has been busy inside with shelf lining and putting all the stuff from the 28' Intl into SilverLeaf II. Hopefully, we'll be off to Florida in the next week for a shakedown. Barry

OK, Spell Check changed "Paroozing" to "parroting".... we all know it's spelled perusing in Webster's (but who even has a dictionary anymore??)

I interpreted the "parroting" correction as your computer figured out we would probably be yakking our heads off about your trailer.

A look ahead: time to get started

As in years past, we offer a bit of a schedule. Not mandatory, not set in stone, just some coordination in case something interests you. Also as in years past, the only requirement is that you enjoy yourself.... And stay safe. Make that 2 requirements.

There is no pavilion or shelter, so all group activities will take place in the open area in the center of the loop. Everyone is close.

THURSDAY
6:00 for the early arrivals, our fabulous HOT DOG FEAST. We have 100 dogs and some chips, we will need buns, condoms, anything you would like to throw in to share, including a desert or two. Make it simple.

FRIDAY
5:00-6:00 MEET and GREET. Come meet the neighbors, bring your beverage of choice.

6:00-7:00 SUPPER ON US. Our almost, just about, nearly famous Possum bog. Don't like Possum?? How do you know, you've probably never had any. Not to worry, tastes just like chicken. Bring your dinnerware and a simple side or desert, if you wish. The possum is a meal in itself.

7:00 until OPEN MIC. Here's your chance to be on stage and in the spot light. Please introduce yourself, if you wish. Don't be shy, you are among friends. Then enjoy a great Carolina evening around the campfire.

SATURDAY, the big day
8:30-9:30 BREAKFAST. Pot luck, please bring your favorite breakfast dish to share. We will have a big perko pot of coffee set up, and Gary will have Cowboy coffee too. There will be dutch oven and campfire cooking taking place as well.

10:00-12:00 SEMINARS. We are still working on the details but as in the past, we will have several hopefully informative seminars to offer. One will be "Is this good water?", lead by Terry of Terryandann. Ever wonder if the water you are drinking is really water? A second one will likely be on "Hitching Up", lead by yours truly. Maybe I can add to the confusion.

12:-1:00 Lunch on your own

1:00-4:00 the best part:
OPEN HOUSE....only if you want to participate. We will have a sign for those that do. See what folks have done inside. Very inspiring. We have some really talented people among US.

FLEA MARKET....Anything you would like to bring to sell, give away, trade. Your own handmade items, extra Airstream parts, unruly kids. We will have tables set up.

BRING-A-BEER, GET-A-BEER if you like the craft beers and have some to share. A wash tub with ice will be set up in the center.

MEET RITA.....ahhh, naughty Rita. Come by for a visit under the awning, our trailer, site #50.

PAROOZING......enjoy the afternoon just hanging out. Be sure you have a good time.

5:00-6:00.....POT LUCK SUPPER. Please bring your favorite dish to share. Tons of great food.

6:30 until.....DOOR PRIZES. You do not have to contribute to participate, everyone gets a ticket regardless. Throw something in if you'd like to. Small trinket, handmade, bought, Airstream/camping related, cheap. We will have some good things from our sponsors to give away also.

Enjoy another fine Carolina evening around the campfire.

SUNDAY
8:30... BREAKFAST. leftovers, doughnuts, pastries, Bloody Marys, anything simple and easy.

the worst part...time to say good bye. As Scarlet O'hara said, "I'm just not gonna think about that today".


More to come later... this should get us started.

John

Some good things to know

There is little to no cell service in the Park. Some of the waterfront sites have a little, but talk fast, it will likely drop off.

We are 10 country miles off the interstate, and at least 18 country miles to emergency services.....TAKE CARE TO STAY SAFE.

The nearest small town is Great Falls, about 12 very country miles away. Not much there. Dollar General, small grocery store.

The nearest bigger town is Winnsboro, about 18 country miles. Walmart, big grocery stores, motel, HOSPITAL.

Remember to be discreet with adult beverages. State rules prohibit them in the Parks but we find them to be very tolerant as long as you don't flaunt them.

The Park office/tackle shop has some basic supplies, best to pack in what you need. There is a small marina with a grill, some grocery items, and brewskys just outside the Park. Turn left at the Park entrance, then 1/2 mile.

The campground roads and sites are all paved, mostly level, deep sites. You may need some blocking for side to side leveling. 30a, water, fire ring, picnic table at each site. The dump station is just outside the campground entrance.

We are all on 1 loop....the only loop....so it is very conducive to paroozing. A walk is fun, everyone is close to everything.

There is no pavilion or shelter so we are at the mercy of the weather. Please bring a push up tent if you have one, and any portable table you may have. Even with the beautiful weather we will have, tents and tables will be needed.

It's a State Park, which means it is very dark once the sun sets. Bring a good flashlight and a Tiki torch.

There may be a few SOB's scattered around the Park. Please extend an invitation for them to join us, everyone is welcome. Let them know what good folks Airstreamers are.

Make Wally proud.



More later.

John

There is no "Like" button on the forum, but I really like your description.

And have found it very accurate!

John,

In my best "Slingblade" voice, "I like the way you talk". We are really looking forward to coming...almost had to cancel due to an upcoming vacancy for a studio apartment we have...and subsequent loss of income...but after reading the posts from the past few days, we're going to hang in there.

Thanks, G

Loss of income...bummer

Loss of fun to be had.....real bummer.
