This was our first overnight at a Cracker Barrel and they were very welcoming. We did a latish dinner there (which do do fairly often) but this time we just stayed the night! We checked in with the cashier who was very gracious and said we were very welcome to stay and that she would let the manager know that we were there. Great for those times when you just want to eat, sleep, and get back on the road.

After reading the messages about the park filling up we decided to head over this noon. We are glad that we did. We have watched a few motor homes search around for a hookup as in this area we think they are all gone; one other Airstream in our north loop along with some long timers and assorted other rigs. Most of the Airstreamers are in the southern loop. It is kind of difficult to tell since KARS appears to be sort of park where you can. We did get water and electricity and the place is pleasant enough. Anyway we are here for the launch and this I think will be nearly ideal.

look for hiding sites

Make sure you look very closely for sites ---- especially on the most south side. Yesterday there were about 4 RVs in there. BUT -there are actually 6 or 8 (can't remember from my lounge chair) sites amongst their little congregation! The other RVs are situated to block direct access to the utilities and your parking to gain the access is going to be challenging. I bet a couple of the very large motor coaches couldn't pull it off - but a TT should! Though, that is the wet area and it is suppose to rain Friday. It drains fairly quickly.....

I'll be there by about 11:00 and will be ready to assist. To the best of my efforts...

Not looking good.....

Today was another day of setbacks in dry dock . Its starting to look unlikely that I can get there before the launch. This is an enormous disappointment as I have wanted to watch a launch since they rolled out the shuttles back in the day. It is still just within the range of possibilities that I will be able to pull this off. Heres hopping for the best.

We have completed the 1st day of our journey and made it to a St Augustine rv park, not a bad spot. Yes I am spoiled and like electricity so decided to enjoy it tonight since it will be lacking the next couple of days. Will be heading out in the am to Kars Park. Be on the lookout for a spot to put this big thing. I would rather have a dryer spot then hookups at this point because its pretty heavy.

Ready for the launch

Hey, we have two boxes of moon pies, mars bars, milkey ways, eclipse gum and a 6 pack of blue moon beer, along with a case of cheap red wine. Can't stop us now we are ready for a launch. Please save us a place next to the Tiki Hut.

We will be finishing up our rainy (sopping wet) journey from Arkansas between noon and 1 p.m. Save us a spot if you can!

Filling the Tanks before Launch

Photo taken just prior to pot-luck this evening. All tanks are now full, and most are resting up before the 4:39am blast off. Many, many thanks go out to Funkill (front row center) for giving us this great opportunity.

I wish I could think of something to assist you guys, let me know if I could help in some way, I would like to get my Airstream out of here, the police just came, a man who rents here stole my wallet, the police came, they left, said nothing could be done. So I seem to have a lot of time on my hands right now. I have a lot of friends who have helped me think up solutions to many problems. If you have any idea on how I could help. let me know, OK?
