Hurricane GUSTOV

Well, there goes the 20th anniversary in Destin at Topsail State Park. Called the campgrond and we have until tomarrow to change the dates. Looks like we will move to the weekend of the 19th to be safe. The friends that watch our labs will evacuate - can't say I blame them - if the storm is anywhere near us here in South Mississippi. To many vivid memories of Katrina 3 years ago. With the counterflow on the higways - chances are we won't be allowed back to our home if it's close.

Glad I preped the CCD for Florida and fixed some nagging issues - now she may be used as my hurricane shelter somewhere up north.

Extend the line to land and it goes through my house........

Best of luck and stay safe.
Business at the stores here in Mississipi is picking up-supplies, gas cans, generators, etc. Gustav seems to be slowing down a little, we don't need it in the warm Gulf waters too long.

Best of luck to all of you in the possible path of this storm. It's sounding big and maybe getting bigger, so scoot on out of there. Be wise, be safe. Keeping you in our thoughts...~G

Gustav

If anyone is headed to North La., I have courtesy parking just off of I-49. All are welcome. Just mapquest 174 rowe rd., Stonewall, La. You'll see the bambi. Plenty of room and fresh country air.

And while we can't offer free parking, there is plenty of shaded sites at the RV park just off I-75 in central Florida, if y'all want to head this way. It can be a plan "B".

May take you up on that, don't know which way I will have to run. Can I run a Honda Generator without disturbing the neighbors?

It will take a few more days to see where this thing is going. Right now New Orleans looks like the target. Best to be ready to roll.

OK Jim, but for all of us here, it may have to be Gustav Caravan, but to where, which way do we go?

A veer of this storm to the east means it's closer to me - in Panama City Beach. If that happens, we'll be making last minute preps this weekend in anticipation of hitting the road with the A/S Sunday or Monday. And the weather on TV tonight said there are a couple more disturbances coming westward toward the Caribbean. We may have a rough time the next few weeks!

That is up to the National Weather Service. Here is a link to the event.
http://www.airforums.com/forums/cale...-30;&e=468&c=1

I had a friend who stayed at the Top Of Georgia for several weeks after Katrina. I would have to rejoin the WBCCI.

If anyone gets on the road at least let us know where you are headed we may meet up. For those who have not dealt with this situation you never really know where you may end up or how long you will be there. I have ended up in Dallas, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Fort Wilderness for various storms. I often don't know where I will go until I am on the road and have a little running room. You always want to get out of the path of the storm to avoid all the nasty things that go on as it move inland. Just getting out of New Orleans can take hours. The "New Governor " is already on top of it so hopefully we will have fewer issues. The best of luck to everyone involved and stay safe.

A good place to hang out until the storm passes would be in Tunica, MS. The Hollywood Casino and Sam's Town Casino both have lots of extremely nice full hookup spaces for $15 and $12 per night respectivelywith showers and laundry. And the buffets aren't bad either. We always stay there for a few days on our trips south and have found few parks any nicer (or cheaper). Just a thought.

Like Clancy Boy, we have reservations at Topsail starting Saturday. Will make our go/no go decision about 6:00 am Saturday morning. We will not be happy campers if Gustav ruins our trip but not nearly as unhappy as those of you living in his path. Stay safe.
