My wife has just waved her scepter and declared we will be there.  Shocked!!! Grin

We are looking forward to meeting new Bussin' friends.  Lois and I spent most of our bussin' life in central Florida.  We recently moved to Dearing, GA and we really miss all our Bussin' Buds in Florida.

Kyle, what sort of unmet 'needs' are there?   I'll be glad to contribute stuff, or bucks...advise O' Great Wagonmaster!  Grin
We're planning on making a little music on Saturday afternoon...same musicians as last year.  We ain't improved much.  Wink
Anyone that picks a little bluegrass, or any other style music, is quite welcome to join the orchestrated 'grass music.   Wink   
When is Gary and Linda coming up?
Kyle, any chance that we could use the building if the weather turns sucky?   I'm hoping for great weather, but, we'll see takes what we gets.   
Gary, do you remember the electric guitar player at Jerry C's FMCA spring fling?  He needs a special invite.
Guy was a super guitar player!   I believe he lives in upstate Ga?  I cannot remember his name...senile dementia is hell.  Cry
Alas, I must now go attend to my broken helicopter....crashed that sucker again!   Good thing I'm not a commercial pilot.  Real good thing.  Shocked

Tootles, JR

JR I'm in Orlando's great Ft. Wilderness RV Park!
Great place for families with kids or grandkids but for a weekend get a way for two, its not high on my list of places to go.
I guess I'm just spoiled being around REAL busnuts that have more in common at rallies and such! I can't wait for the flywheelers rally. I'll feel more like home although away from home if you know what I mean! Here it either cost you much extra to do something or your not allowed to be where you went such as the beach after dark or the road to the stables or the walking path! Well we WERE in our golf carts and were told we couldn't leave the park unless we were walking or in a shuttle! I mean you can only run up and down the different loops they have here so many times before you realize its old stuff!
Some people REALLY enjoy it but to be honest, its not for me! One day was plenty! Even the pools were way overcrowded and never used them! You would think disney would be far better than what I've seen especially at 60 bucks a night for camping in a swamp!
Oh well, made the best of it and home tomorrow!
Now if Susan could only get off work in October! Smiley

Awnings & tables for the shared meals will be great.

I'm not sure, I think he'll be there by Thursday.

We have the Palmetto Hall all day Friday & Sunday. We will have the Picnic Shelter all day Saturday.

I've got a table.  About a 5' octagonal thingy.  I'll bring it.   
The only awning I have is attached to the side of the bus....?  Welcome to that!  Wink

See you soon!  JR

BTW Ace....be a 'man'...Susan CAN get off work.  You just strongly suggest that she'll take off that week...?   Grin 
Isn't that how it works in other families?  Doesn't work for me at all..but it may for you! 
Bring your instruments!  I know ya'll been going to some BG festivals...should about be 'pro' fiddle and mando!
We did a few days at Fort Wilderness once.  I enjoyed what we did.   They had adult beverages almost everywhere we went evenings...Pleasure Island and the Barn Dinner Theatre that was located next to the camground.  The dinner theater set buckets of beer and chicken on the tables....now how cool is that!    As you describe, to move around in the park we had to take a shuttle.  Often we were the only people on the bus.   Had to watch that when trying to return from Pleasure Island late. 
We rode most of the rides in the DisWorld too...just two of us.   We had been down in Key West diving and the weather turned off nasty for days.. We decamped Key West and headed north...ended up at Disney.   Weather was bad in Orlando too...but that made access to the rides easy.   
That was the second time weather ran us out of Key West.   I reckon around 1990 an ice storm closed most of the interstate in and north of Jax.  We just got thru Jax and they closed it.   I drove about half way to North Carolina before stopping.  Spent the night camping in a rest stop.  No problems...just dangerous on the roads at night.  Glad the LP tanks were full!

Kyle,

We are planning on being there. I think Dad will want to come back also. He had a great time last year. I will have two, possibly three kids with me. I know Alison had a "blast" with the bottle rockets last year. She still has her record setting rocket hanging in her room. Hope you will bring the rocket rig again. I could operate that for the kids if need be. And of course we will have Shy, the ferret, on a leash again.

Really had a great time last year, met great folks and made good Friends. Wonder if Cliff has anymore Solo bus conversion stories he wants to share? Having been there and done that I could really relate.

Looking forward to seeing you all again,

Breck
