It's Me Again...

Looking at the Corp parks I realize they lock (with a padlock) the gates at 10:30. My experience has been they don't budge on that policy - if the gate is locked that's it. You better have an absolute emergency on your hands if you want it unlocked!

I called Bolding Mill and they have a parking area outside the gate. Many other parks on Lanier don't have parking outside the gate. I don't know about Alatoona.

If we're camping and carpooling somebody can leave their vehicle inside and the other drive to the show. The outside parking is at the boat ramp. It's not secure but there has never been a problem with break-in/vandalism according to the campground host.

Any comments. I'm not keen on leaving my vehicle outside but I'd give it some consideration. Anyone else?

I can do so. We don't have anything valuable, except cast iron and firewood. Hard Labor Creek the closest SP?

Possible Campgrounds?

Danielle and I were north of Atlanta today so we took a look at Bolding Mill campground. The campground is very nice but I think it's too remote for this particular weekend particularly when combined with the issue of the locked gate.

I'm leaning toward a state park to avoid the locked gate problem. Fort Yargo would work better for us compared to Hard Labor Creek. Comments?

Balancing Work and Play

I don't have any vacation days to devote to camping on the Antsy weekend so I need to camp within reasonable driving distance of Lawrencville. For that reason I'm 99.9% leaning toward Fort Yargo State Park.

A side benefit of Fort Yargo is its proximity to Athens. After the Antsy and Troubs show on Friday in Atlanta, Athens on Saturday night sounds like fun. The Terrapin Brewery Terrapin Beer Athens, Georgia Microbrew Ale Pilsner has tours and tastings on Saturday from 5:30 - 7:30.

Looks like there are plenty of sites available. Commit and we will reserve. Yargo is fine with us.

Looks like Hard Labor or Stone Mountain are closer. Let us know what you choose.

We are looking in to going. My sister lives about a mile from the cafe. We might stay with her. Would love to be camping if we can swing it.

Wow Brad, I thought you graduated from High School already....... Never too late to start.

I'll be flying between Key West and LA that weekend. Nothing like work.

The Post Antsy Show Party & Crash Pad

All dressed up and no where to sleep it off?

I think Brad's house would be a great place to "just show up".

After the show we will need to wind down.
After a HS game they will need to get wound up.

em.

ps Brad, don't go to any trouble. We will bring some napkins.

Fort Yargo State Park

I made a reservation at Fort Yargo State Park. Going there is sort of like camping in the back yard since it's close to work and relatively close to home. But it will give us a chance to check out the new air conditioner and fridge. Both units died recently.

Any interest in a road trip to Terrapin Brewery on Saturday? EM, I hear they have a good pale ale. Brad, even though you have a game on Friday why not go camping with us? Danielle and I will be arriving on Wednesday after work. You could join us for a few days and still go to the game on Friday. Sort of a last-minute end-of-summer-thang!
