Frooze my, well it was NOT hot.
Was first time in my life ever been cold on the 4th.

So bring your fins & shorts, get ready for some body surfing.

Hey y'all, we're headed to Ft. Walton Beach to visit Grandma for Turkey Day. Anybody need to me to run by Tops'l for any reason? Pictures of Main Street maybe? Check out the temp of the pool? Mark the path to the beach? Lemme know, be happy to. Thanksgiving for us is one of the few times a year we actually act like we're on "vacation". We don't plan anything except the turkey feast on Thursday.

Jim

OOPs, forgot about that. Well, what the hay, I may still run out there anyway to take a look-see. Maybe it'll help motivate me to get my camper finished so we can join y'all for the second Annual.

Don't forget the weight limit on that Airstream, Beck. Have fun shopping. We will get there around noon, I hope, on Friday. looking at extending our vacation and head down to Orlando, Fort Wilderness. Have to catch up with Minnie's Mate and get my ticket punched at Disney.

I just love all the little storage spaces in the Airstream, but yes I know I need to watch the limit of weight, the good thing is the shower is not in working order so I can store alot there

We will just be returning from Disney...not taking the Airstream, though. We go every year at Christmas so was not sure we would be able to make this rally. But we are so looking forward to it. This one is just snow balling.

Now, from Atlanta, what is the best route?

BTW Klattu, War D@mn Eagle!!!! Five in a row! Class of '85.

We travel the route from Santa Rosa Beach to Atlanta and back regularly. We have tried all the routes and find this one the best, and our AS has been with us on the last several trips.

I-85 to I-185 to Columbus; US 431 to Dothan; US 231 to I-10; I-10 west to exit 96, SR 81 (Ponce de Leon); SR 81 south to SR 20; SR 20 west to US 331; US 331 south to US 98; US 98 west to SR 30A. SR 30A to Tops'l.

Thanks, that is the route we normally take to St. George Island as far as I-10. We continue south past I-10. We have tried I-10 to I-75 on the way back but found that to be really out of the way. We've also tried I-75 to exit 99 and taken the Georgia/Florida Highway as well. All of this is to get to St. George which looks like a couple of hours east of Topsail.

BTW, how long does it take from Atlanta to Topsail? Roughly speaking. We live about 20 miles south of the Atlanta Airport and would get on I-85 at Newnan, GA (Hwy 34).
