Great work Nicki! This even looks like a lot of fun!

Questions... Although I did not read all 55 pages, sorry if I missed something in between.

1. Can spots be reserved for a partial week? Like Tuesday-Friday? (I'll be headed to Fort DeSoto beach outside of Tampa on Friday afternoon)

2. Would a SOB 1948 Spartan Mansion 30' in some state of restoration be welcome? Okay, the outside is semi decent... Inside is dicey. As for hook-ups: water and 20A circuit is all I can use. (pics on request to see if it meets quality standards LOL)

We would be okay at any style camp site (premium versus standard) to fit the groups needs in layout. No kids this time to plan around. I doubt we would need Disney tickets as we need to explore Universal Studios. (we did Disney proper with the kids two years ago)

Most likely, I would drive the rig down and pick up the wife at the Orlando airport once camp is setup... Tragic I know! The journey can be half the fun... Okay I-95 straight south is not that exciting.

Don't worry we'll have a case of good Virgina red wine with us to share for our AS shortcomings.

Enough rambling from me! Please PM me if you need anything or have questions.

Thanks!

You can be in a Bounder motor home for all I care if you've got a case of wine to share!

Thanks for all the positive feedback! The Mansion has her share of issues due to water collection at some point, but the frame and running gear are solid... And we can work with that! It will need a complete restoration over the winter though. The floor is shot and it needs new electrical.

Nicki, that sounds great! I will firm up plans this weekend and shoot you a PM at worst on Monday.

So it's just not a clever screen name! LOL Lately the VA wineries have been producing some very good blends. We'll try to bring a variety in the case for tasting. Granted depending on the wine, many use a CA Merlot as a base or to blend with. Again it depends on the wine... I am no wine snob or connoisseur though, I just like what I like.

We'll roll out the red carpet and put out the pineapple once we get to Disney! Everyone is welcome to come and relax and check out what ultra "vintage" camping was about! Granted compared with the new AS rigs this is chopped liver, but in '48 it was the Cadillac of its time.

Thanks!

Love Spartan Mansions. Would have one if I had time, money, repair skill.

Wine-welcome, welcome, welcome. Have been known to make an emergency wine run.

See you in a very few number of days.

Small switch in plan. I will be trading the wife in for our youngest daughter, 6 years old and should enjoy this trip immensely.

Nicki, I am shooting you a PM in a minute for reservation details.

I started a Blogish thread so you all can keep me honest as for progress!
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f417...ion-95803.html

(PS I am waiting on the UPS man to deliver some more goodies. Muuuhahaha So the next few weeks of restoration should be fun!)

Take Care!
