Campgrounds?
« on: December 10, 2008, 12:36:44 AM »
I was planning on camping the whole weekend. I'm sure there are many Campgrounds in the area but which ones are the best and or closest to the meet? For those planning on camping it would be great if we could all be at the same campgrounds.

Scott, if you have any questions about stuff in the area I'd recommend asking Jeff (ro4fd). He is the go to guy

Thanks. I found info on the Cheoh Point Campground and it's a no alcohol allowed and two car only per lot campground. I'm not sure I want to stay where we could not gather in #'s. I will call them and see if they have a section off by itself that we could take over with multiple sites and lots of parking. The no alcohol policy is probably solid. I'm older than most guys on this forum and rarely drink alcohol. You learn as you get older that it is not necessary to get drunk to have fun, although I did not realize this when I was young. I guess I could be the DD captain but no puking is allowed in my Speed 3. >:(

DD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!

haha just kidding. well if you would like you are more than welcome to pop up some tents on our backyard at the mansion..... there'd be a small fee but there is plenty of parking and you could use the bathroom showers and kitchen. you'd be close to everyone as welll...

I'm not sure where I'm staying yet. I'm not going to decide until I get there. If the weather is nice I will camp at the campground near by or in the woods behind the house, if that will be OK. If the weather is bad, I'll get a room somewhere. If something comes up and I'm not able to make it I will still provide plenty of iced cakes, cookies, bread and rolls but someone will have to stop by Kentucky on the way down to pick it up. Yeah I'm an old guy but there does need to be some adult supervision at the meet.

I'm leaving early Friday morning the 12Th. I was hoping to join a convoy going down. Will you be going south on I-65? The guys from Louisville and Lexington will probably be going south on I-75 which I could cut across to on the Cumberland parkway.

I think I do go down I65, but I'll be leaving Tuesday afternoon/night.  I'm staying in the Mansion so I'll be there Wed-Sun.

i hear the kids aren't coming this year..

and $50 is quite a lot considering they can camp for free at the national parks nearby.

Corb's it wouldn't be for the actual tenting... it would be the facilities, people coming in and out, the possibility of damage (even by mistake....) you just never know is all.

I'm Most Def Camping! coming down to NC would be a waste not to enjoy the outdoors as well :) I'd Be down with that campground with the no drinking. I don't need beer to have fun. Although being close to bathroom access would be a Major +
