Y'all have fun, and watch for lab mixes at Chicot....this is where we found our abandoned Miss lily.

We won't be able to make this, but hope to see you in October. (Hint, hint, hint Matt.)

If you've settled on Chicot, pick a loop in the south campground, and we'll start making reservations in that loop. If anyone is going to need the bathhouse, I recommend sites 5-19 on Loop A. That puts you reasonably close to one. Since the dump station is also on the way out of Loop A, it's convenient in that regard as well.

For what it's worth, last time I was there I stayed at Site 10 on Loop A.

That half day was for a non family member so it counted against my vacation time.
They will let me leave at 3 or 4 any Friday afternoon I am going camping. The owner has a motor home and likes to camp, too.

Just thought I would toss another site out for people to think about. Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in Northeastern La. Does anyone have any first hand reports about it? I have not been to the park, but did go to the Poverty Point mounds and it is a pretty awesome place.

I looked online and their seems to be plenty of Premium sites available April 18-20. Don't know how many trailers will attend, but there is a small loop with 5 sites available that weekend.

Any and all comments welcome. Hope it's not too far for anyone.

Tom

About a 4Ĺ-hour drive for me pulling my toad via I-55 and I-20, 3ĺ hours not pulling my toad. Doable.

Shade is sparse to nonexistent for all campsites, so if one is going to go, April's not a bad time. Come late May or later, it will be too beastly hot. No sites have lake frontage, but I can live without that since it's only a weekend trip.

Small loop is mostly Improved sites, no sewer. The larger loop is mostly Premium sites with sewer hookups.

Poverty point is awesome. Some sites not very shaded, but that won't matter in March.
Some sites have a lot of shade, but are much smaller.
Years ago this was a soybean field.
It is a beautiful campground with long pads and water, electric, and sewer right where they need to be- curbside rear-
till 3 1/2-4 hours for me- US Hwy 49 to Yazoo City, MS Hwy 3 to Vicksburg, US Hwy 61 to I-20 W.

Mgriffrus, the ball is in your court. You started this, so the final choice is yours. Poverty Point seems to be more likely to lead to higher attendance, being more centrally located for guys like M.Hony. And I have to say I like the idea of having a premium campsite with sewer hookup, that Chicot doesn't have.

What do you think?

Wait a minute-
Is it Easter weekend?
Is Easter April 20?
We are off the whole week after Easter because we are attending a rally at Lake Tiak O'Khata April 23-25. We were planning on going on over on April 19. We were planning on going from there to Yocona Ridge from April 25-27.
If the Two Weeks From Anywhere rally is April 19-20...

Okay, we've discussed it here at the house and we've discussed it online. Let's go with Chicot State Park. So....


Who: Anyone who wants to attend
What: Two Weeks from Everywhere Spring Rally 2014.
When: April 18-20 (Easter Weekend)
Where: Chicot State Park, South Campground Loop A
Why: Why not?
How: Any way you can. (preferably legally)

We'll try and stay on top of things a little better for the fall rally and maybe head over to Lake Bruin or Poverty Point. Any golfers out there that travel with clubs? Poverty Point just happens to be almost right next door to one of the top-rated public courses in the state, Black Bear golf course. Hmm.....Airforums golf tournament.....that's an idea!

Matt
