Happy birthday Sandlapper. Today you can get away with anything, and claim it's your mid-life crisis.

Happy Birthday big guy! You just hit another speed limit- 60. As you know the older you become the faster the speed limit....... I am looking for the 45 zone myself. Have a great day with your family. We may have to toast you at the R3 rally. I am sure there would be some creek water up in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Fletcher. Or maybe some single malt?

Have a great day, be safe.

See ya down the road.

Have a great birthday!! Birthdays are like a roll of toilet paper - the closer to the end you get, the faster they go! Don't go too fast, we want you at a lot more Alumalinas.
Count us in at Region for that birthday toast.

Thank you all my good friends

It has indeed been a great day. It started at 6:30 this morning with a phone call from Terry M, wishing me a happy b day. Then at 8:30 a call from Cheryl (Phil and Sue) singing happy birthday to me. Thank you Cheryl.

All day long emails and posts from my many friends....thank you all for the love.

Then a timely but unbeknownist to them card in the mail from Gregg and Bonnie in Rhode Island. Hey you guys, I was already thinking about you today as I sipped the wonderful single malt you gave me at the rally. Trust me, it is good.

So, at the end of the day on my 60th birthday, I count myself blessed to have so many good friends that are like family. A toast, then, to us all, that we may share many more good times together. Love you all.

Fall 2014 Alumalina Map Update April 13, 2014

A check of the park reservation site this morning shows 14 sites still available for the weekend of September 26-29.

The last list of attendees (post #51 of this thread) shows Jack B in site 39. The park reservation system this morning shows site 39 available. I left Jack on the map but if he thinks he has a reservation he should check with the park.

Here's a link to the campground map reflecting the site information I have as of this morning:

We had a wonderful time at the rally. About 20 of us got together for a fish dinner on Sunday night. Thanks for the fish. We loved Wateree so much we stayed until Thursday.

Alumalina friends

I have to let you know, my Dad, John Sr. is in the hospital. He has a blood infection, diabetes that is higher than before, and ruptured/bulging discs in his back. Tuesday night He could not stand up, shooting pain in the groin, from the knee up. After 6 hours in the ER they kept him overnight. He has ben run through the tests and may be out another 2 weeks. All the while I have a Mom at home with Parkinsons and a home health aid. Just keep us in your thoughts, thanks John
