    Well Pat, just copy my idea and put a "A" with a elephant on there! I'm sure that we might even see a few ga.tech fans show up with there creation as well! [LOL]

    Micbur,

    I don't have a family sign, nice buckets to put any torches/flags in or anything of that sort so don't feel like you will be the only one. Looks like we need to get on the ball!!!!! I am looking forward to lots of ideas for projects this coming weekend!!! I think I have been deprived in the accessory department!!!

    It's been raining so heavy here in West Alabama, we're going to have to rent a tractor to pull our PUP out of the backyard. [:(]

    So excited about the Rally! See some of you Thursday, and the rest of you Friday!!! [:D]

    Pat, send that heavy rain to my house! Last few days everyone else has been getting rain but me! Only sprinkles here at my house. Getting real dry at my house.. I noticed my hemlock in the front yard is changing colors-to a yellow. [:(]

    I keep hearing and reading that some parts of the country are suffering severe drought. I wish I could send y'all some of the rains we've gotten in Tuscaloosa. I'll pack you a couple of buckets, Jim, and give them to you at the Rally! :)

    I just hope we don't bring our usual rain clouds with us to the Rally! Or maybe they could follow us up, slowly, a couple days behind us, and you could have our rain the rest of the week. [:D]

    I picked up my rally decals today. Thank you John for creating those.
    Should I put one of the decals on my camper?

    Thanks for the offer, Papa. You would come all the way to Tuscaloosa for me??? Wow! [8D]

    The sun actually came out for a little while after I posted this, and although it's drizzling a little out now, the swamp has dried up somewhat around the PUP, and I think we'll be okay pulling her out. We also raised the roof a few inches to check inside for leaks, and she seems to be holding tight. (We've had over 4" of rain since last night)

    BTW, I made our Family Sign today. Hopefully will be dry by tomorrow. I'll give it one more coat of Poly in the morning, and it should be ready to toss in the PUP Thurs morning for the Rally. Yay me!

    Going to get the camper from our storage "barn" and we have our stuff piled up, ready to be at McKinney on Thursday. Just need to get our fresh food into the cooler and watch the clock.

    Let's all hope for great weather -- rain is nice but not during our daytime fun, please! See everyone soon. [8D]

    Got the handouts printed last night and bought the last of the fresh food to prepare. Camper is hitched and ready to head out Thursday! Drive safely everyone and see you this weekend!

    (Jeanie, I know the unsweetened tea and watermelon will be much enjoyed, but it didn't make the handout list in case someone wants the recipe! Ben & Diane (our camping friends on site #120 just let me know today they are bringing brownies to the potluck.)

    Ok everyone! ONE DAY AWAY!!!!!


    My intentions are to be there before lunch tomorrow. Looks like the weather is going to break a little bit, hopefully the rain will bypass us at the campground!

    I will check with the hosts about setting up the tables outside the site. not sure they're going to let us, but I will ask to speak to the ranger if I need to. I might even invite the hosts to the potluck and see if that gains us any 'favor' LOL

    if they won't allow us to set up the tables in between sites 127 - 128, then I'll have a welcome table set up at my site, 125. I'll have the shirts there.

    Thanks to Ga Judy for all her hard work on the flyer/lists. They will be available at the welcome table as well.

    Looking foward to meeting everyone I haven't met, and seeing all those from the previous rally again!
