Hi Scubacamper,
Perhaps you can come out for the day on Saturday and join us for the pot luck. Just let us know what you are bringing!

Pot luck update-
I called the park today, and they said it would be okay for us to set up our potluck in the grassy area behind my site (#44).

We have a place, and I believe yetavon, orchid, and I will be bringing tables. Is there anyone else bringing a table. (and I'll add it to the potluck list so I don't forget.)

For those of you who haven't been to a rally befor, you will need to bring your own chairs.
Also, you will need to bring any serving spoons, etc. for your dish.
(Between orchid and me, we will supply plates cups, napkins, utensils, and tablecloths.)

Experienced ralley folks, pleas chime in if I have forgotten anything!

We were planning on staying Sunday night, but just found out my Sister will be visiting Dads for the weekend till Monday. So we will be heading out to Tallahassee Sunday morning.
Also anyone else interested in paddling the river? We plan on bringing kayaks.

I am envious -- I won't be able to head out until after 4:30pm Friday (but it will probably be more like 5:30 -- and we'll be setting up in the dark, again...).

The good thing is that when I wake up on Saturday I'LL BE CAMPING!

3 days, and counting...

We hope to be there by mid afternoon on the Friday, so if you need extra hands for that setting-up-in-the-dark, we're not too far away,

I'm sorry to say that due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not be camping at this rally. I had a minor, outpatient surgery yesterday and feeling a bit worse than expected. I suppose I'm not as tough as I thought I was. Please accept my apologies.

SHFL is now your fearless Wagonmaster! I have spoken to her in private, and she is fine with this.

We are going to try to make the pot luck on Saturday afternoon. I hope everyone has a fantastic time and hope this becomes a February tradition so we can come next year. At least now SHFL has learned from my mistakes and can contact Tri Lynx at least 3 weeks in advance for some freebies. [:D]

Hello all....... Sue, Lillie[DOG] and I will be settled in Thursday afternoon and will be fending off any bad weather gremlins [:D] [:D] [:D]. As many of the group will be coming in later Friday with much setup to be done we would like to invite you to our site (35) for a informal get together (meet and greet) and relax around a fire. Bring a chair and a beverage of choice and enjoy.

Hello everyone,

We are all saddened that Orchid will not be camping with us, and she has left some very big shoes to fill. I am still the "scout," and we are all pulling together for this rally.

Without being asked, Wayne In Florida has stepped up to welcome us to the rally -- THANK YOU Wayne!

Yetavon and Ghaydu will be providing tables for our 1:00 pm Saturday potluck, and you all have volunteered to provide some tasty dishes. THANKS TO YOU ALL!

Wayne In Florida is also planning a campfire for Saturday. (another big THANKS) I am bringing glow-stick necklaces & bracelets for the kids, and marshmallows, graham crackers, & chocolate for us to make s'mores. (Bring your sticks)

I'll be busy Saturday morning setting up the campsite for my guests (their first time camping...ever), but I am planning a pancake send-off on Sunday. I'll have a better idea of the time after the potluck.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you, and I'll probably be rolling in around 8:00pm on Friday.

Less than 48 hours till camping!

Only 1 hours of work left here on the northern front. then its home to finish packing up.
We are picking up the grandson about 6:30 this evening and on the road...not sure exact plans besides driving south, but should be there Friday morning before our site opens. Also add one more to our ranks, Our sons tagging along.
We can offer up a pot of Chili for Friday nights weary traveler at Wayne's....might give the musical tower a run for its money [:D] We can also add a Mountain Man for Sunday. Any other help we can provide just ask.

Safe travels yetavon! Glad your son can join us.

And thank you for help with Sunday breakfast. When orchid messaged me, I stepped in a wagonmaster; but I did not realize the enormity of what needed to be done. And I realized that several of us are working together a wagonmasters.

Thank you to all of you for bringing the together. And thank you orchid -- you are still wagonmaster -- bringing us together to make this rally work!
