I am thinking that this might be too long a haul for one day. Any suggestions for convenient over night stop along 85 south of Atlanta?

Our spot is possibly available

Our spot is possibly available. I injured my back Saturday afternoon as bad as I have ever hurt it and it has gotten much worse since then. I currently am unable to even hook up the camper (am barely able to put my socks on). As much as we have been looking forward to it, if things don't get better, I don't see where we can make it. I'm not sure if the event is full or not but send me a PM if you want to get my spot. I'm going to get a shot in my back today, so hopefully it will help.

I had big plans for re-polishing my trailer this past Saturday and didn't get anything done. It's very discouraging and frustrating at this point.

Thanks, G

Good luck Geven, I feel your pain.
Was really looking forward to seeing you and Ruth again.

If it's just getting you hooked up that would keep you from coming, let me know. I'll come up and hook you up. Socks? You're on your own, pal.

FDR State Park in Pine Mountain is really nice, pretty close to your path. Or, Blanton Creek (??), which is a campground run by Georgia Power north of Columbus in Hamilton. If you can get north of ATL a little bit (Marietta), PM me and you could stay in our driveway.

We will still be coming, just bringing 2 trailers instead of 3. TW and Russell were hoping to bring their camper, but have some damage. The good news is that they still may come anyway.

The grandkids have picked out the dish for Saturday breakfast and the potluck! Wonder if they are going to cook it too. Um.......

We'll see everyone Friday!

Brad, FDR looks perfect. Checked their web site and they have 55 pads open Wednesday night. $25 before discounts. Going to give them a call to double check availability. Thank you for the suggestion.

FDR is one of our favorite state parks. If you go out to dinner and you're wanting a great steak consider Hunter's Pub Hunters Pub And Steak House - Hamilton, Ga | Best Lil' Steakhouse in Georgia
You'll wonder what you're getting into when you see the outside of the place but it's our favorite down there. On weekends the lines in the parking lot are huge. You shouldn't have a problem on a Tuesday night

Karen and Brad

Nasty thunder storms currently in my neck of the Gulf Coast. Hope they move on thru by the time I leave tomorrow morning. My luck I will have them all way to Georgia. It has been one of those kinds of nasty winters/springs so far. All packed, hooked up and ready to go.
