drats

I thought I had managed to get 'sent' to Mobile Alabama on offical business for thursday morning but they saw through the deal....
It looks like we will leave the Jackson area thursday after work, spend the night just south of Hattiesburg and arrive at Top Sail mid-day Friday ---with genuine Southern Catfish Nuggets in the freezer for the Pot Luck

Lets keep our fingers crossed for no more rain, the truck is filthy but at least the 'stream had a bath.

PM me if ya'll forgot anything that I can bring.

Man, you're going to make my Bunkhouse look soooo bad. It is filthy. This fall has been tough on it with leaves, etc. and I haven't had a chance to wash it. Truck is the same. I don't know if I'll have a chance to get either washed before we leave on Friday (doubtful).

Topsail address for Garmin

Does anyone have an address for Topsail that will work for a Garmin? I've tried putting in 7525 Hwy 30A, West hwy 30 a, County Road 30 and so on with no luck. I called the park and they had no further info that would work. Also tried to search by name...it pulled up 7 other nearby state parks but not this one. This only happens occassionally and is usually due to some road having three names or something.

Thanks, G

Here are the coordinates.
TOPSAIL Gregory E Moore Campground & Rv Resort
N30 22.010 W86 16.389

Try searching Garmin under Gregory E Moore RV Resort. I tried "Topsail" the first Can Opener and ended up somewhere towards Panama City Beach. But these coordinates are dead on for Palm Circle in the campground. As you come down 98 Look for a brown Topsail state park sign. Turn south onto 30A, a Chevron station is on the corner there. It's barely a mile down 30A from there. Do not turn into Topsail Preserve or Topsail Beach. You will have to turn around. Wait for the campground sign that says Gregory E Moore Topsail.

Gotta love the sign here in Ms. Lucille's, my quick Wifi spot.

Topsail directions

Thanks Sugarfoot and Pick....there isn't a place in my low end Garmin to put coordinates in but it did have Gregory E Moore RV resort in there with the same address. Two calls to the park describing the problem and they never mentioned it had another name even when we asked them.

Thanks!

G

Seeing all of ya'll arriving, in the process of arriving or planning on being there on Friday makes me wondr if I should just quit work and go to rallies for the rest of my life. Having to delay and show up on Saturday is really putting a pain in my @$$, but I do have to have a way to pay for all this fun.

See everyone on Saturday.

S'foot - do what you may to my site - remember, you have to sleep sometime. I have lots of time to plan.

Safe travels all.

Mike

I attended my first Can Opener Rally last year. It was a great place for a rally and the people I met were awesome. I will miss being there due to conflicts. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Safe travels to all.
