    Doh! Now that's not at all what I had in mind. Please sleep as long as you want.

    Tick Tock - T-minus 2 days until we hit the road.

    Hello folks.
    We won’t be rolling in until later Friday night if we make it. We are coming from the jersey shore and
    School and work schedules won’t let us leave until later. Weather is looking dicey at the moment
    So it may be a last minute call for us. The DW just had oral surgery so she is not feeling all that well
    And would just be miserable dealing with the 3hr ride and camping in the rain so we will see. I hope
    It works out as me and the son are looking forward to it. If we make it we will be on site 108 in PP.

    Does anyone know if the park sell fire wood or is there somewhere close to get some?

    Lp

    Hope you can make Fastlane, We are driving 8 hours to go to the Rally, but we are heading down Wednesday. Also for us, a rainy day camping with friends is better than staying home LOL
    Not sure, about the firewood I just hang out at Mikes (Shelmilys site) he will have a fire of some kind (wood or propane) Friday and Saturday night ;)

    THERE WILL BE NO PROPANE FIRES AS LONG AS YOU ARE AROUND DAVE!
    Fastlane, I hope your wife feels better and you can make it. I wouldn't put too much stock in the forecast anyway, the weathermen are never right. As for firewood, not sure if the office sells it, but there are several places right up the road that have nice wood, and at reasonable prices. Also, like mentioned, I will have fires, and all are welcome.

    We may not leave until Thursday morning. Lily is receiving an award for academic excellence (complete with $100 check) from the Tyler Place and the presentation is Wednesday at 1300, so it's kind of a big deal for us. Depending on when we can get underway, we may just wait until morning. We shall see.

    Yeah Lily, congratulations! I suppose if you are going to come up with an excuse Josh, that's as good as any. Have a safe trip, see you whenever you get here.

    So checking the forecast for the rest of the week, it looks pretty good for Wednesday and Thursday. Maybe some showers on Friday, and a chance of a thunderstorm on Saturday. It is supposed to be humid Friday - Sunday too. I don't put much faith in weather forecasts though, this will change 12 times before the weekend. I just thought I would post it for those who wanted to know. We will have fun regardless of the weather. Anyway, I am leaving this afternoon and hope to be set up and relaxing, somewhere around 7:00ish. You can all envy me while you are still traveling. I hope everyone has a safe trip, and I will see you all when you get there.

    Just a friendly reminder. Don't forget to fill your water tank as you come in. For those of you who are new here, they do have water spigots at the top of the loops, but it is much easier to stop next to it on your way in, than to carry it back an forth up and down the hill. Ask me how I know...:oops:

    Hey, Mike!
    Inspired by a DO dish that jmkay1 (Joanne) brought to the Point Lookout SP rally
    ...[CK]
    Please change my potluck dish to cheesy potato casserole.
    Thanks!

    Smoked the chicken skewers last night came out pretty good if I do say so myself. I have two easy ups and I'm going to bring them both in order to deter the rain. we're heading up Friday morning it's about a three hour drive does anybody know if there strict about checking in early? Otherwise can't wait to meet everyone and do some relaxing.
