Just a heads up: we will be canceling our #118 site reservation for the Can Opener () tomorrow or Monday, and hope that someone still thinking about attending can take up our spot. We'll post here when Max makes the cancellation so that someone can slip right in behind us. We are SO disappointed, but family needs with several issues will keep us close to home. Have the most wonderful time together, beach walks, sun and sand and surf, and of course, great food and beverages. Will someone please remove our plans for the PotLuck on Saturday night: Hoppin' John, Bacon and a grill for cooking it, Airstream lights and Missouri wine. Please keep this thread going so that we feel like we are really there...Happy New Year, '08! ~G

You may need to make two trips...there are 50+ showing up this year.
We will take some home if any is left over.

It is with sad regret that I have to announce that we aren't going to be able to make the rally due to some unexpected repairs on our unit that I woun't be able to complete in time to make it. I'll try to break away Saturday and come down for the day to at least meet you all. I was really looking forward to this but our camper has some leak issues I have to attend to. I had site #141 reserved but cancelled it this afternoon.

If you're coming from out of state, bring some warm clothes, looks like a cold front will be coming through. In the past, we were able to keep our trailer rather warm with the roof unit set on low heat and used a small electric heater.

Hey Greg when are you leaving and what route are you taking? Inquiring minds want to know.

Leaving Thursday morning around 6 or 7. Forgotten the exact route but through B'ham. Seems like we go through Opp and Florala (sp) and then across the old bay bridge. Puts us just east of the CG. About 500 miles from my drive.

Hey there ya'll,

From Mystic Springs Park you could just go south on Hwy 29 to Pensecola, then go over Hwy 98, but that way you'll be in a lot of stop and go traffic.
I'd like to suggest a less stressful and more scenic route that you can check out on the map.
Go North on Hwy 29 to Century, get a burger at WhatABurger right before Hwy 4 (they're good), then take a right (East) on Hwy 4 to Baker. At Baker take a right at the traffic light, only one in town, and go south about 4 miles to Hwy 90. Turn left to Crestview to Hwy 85, (2nd light you'll come to), travel south on Hwy 85 until you get to Niceville. Then go East on Hwy 20 (John Sims Pkwy) until you get to the turn to take the Mid Bay Bridge, go on bride and at the end of the bridge will be Hwy 98. Turn left to go the campground. The Mid Bay Bridge is a toll bridge, it's $2.50 for a vehicle plus $2.50 for each additional axle. It'll save you from having to go into Fort Walton Beach and over on 98 from the other direction. The less you have to drive on Hyw 98, the better, it's busy.

Hey there, Just a reminder that the Mid Bay Bridge is a toll bridge, $2.50 per vehicle, $2.50 per additional axle. Have your cash ready, and lots of it, Destin area isn't cheap, that's why Florida loves tourists! (and why FL doesn't have a state income tax)
BTW, Did you all know that there's a Bass Pro Shop in Destin?

The bridge I went across last year did not have a toll.

camp fires

I am bringing a portable fire pit and it does not handle real big fires. Smaller short pieces are best. For one evening, I'm guessing 30 pieces so times that by the number of nights we want a fire.

I am so sorry to hear that G - I do hope all is okay.....

I know the feeling of disappointment - I was so much looking forward to going and then looking forward to both Peter and I going to then none of us going was a huge lunch bag let down!!!

But as they say Life is so unpredictable - sometimes we just fool ourselves with our plans for escape

Perhaps G we could commiserate together

We will just have to be like the millions of people that watch the sports event from TV instead of the front row seats

So you lucky ones be sure to keep us all posted on all the fun.....

And hope all traveling arrive safely...
