I'm in. Weeks ago if you can believe it Eddie!
Figured you'd do it a little different this year...............

LOL...Yeah, I've decided after a few rallies this year that you guys are safe to hang out with for a few weekends next year, so I dropped the dough early this time. ;)

Hey Randy. I wonder iff'n I could ask a favor of ya. Could you pick up a six pack (or more?? :beerchug: ) of Abita ANDYGATOR and bring it along? I really like that stuff, but can't get it here. I bought it in PCB at a Publix when we were up there last month. Yummy yummy for the tummy tummy. I'll even pay ya for it, nice guy that I am. :rotflmao:

TIA

Sure. Just remind me right before the rally. Cuz I have squirrel memory...wait, where are my nuts??

Thank ya sir. I'll be forever in your debt.

According to the Abita website you can get it at Okee-fes. 115 S Rockingham Ave in Tavares.  There are a few other places in nearby towns too.

Hey Chip, how ya doin'?

O'keefes is strictly on sale. I'll check the others. Abita is distributed locally by Browns, and according to a driver, he has not seen ANDYGATOR. The sight also shows Bob's over in Leesburg. They get some brews in from some weird suppliers, so they may have it.

Thanx for the info.

Alrighty then. Thanks to Chipdoc's nudge in the correct direction, I did find ANDYGATOR locally.

So Randy, thanks for volunteering, but it's handled.

Now, were we talking about something besides beer?  :beerchug:

I think the real question now is can you keep yourself away from it till the rally??

Perhaps a gander into finding a place to purchase said libation closer to Starke... makes a ride with a purpose at the rally....   :)

It's already half gone, but I know where there is more. Good point on something local to Starke. That could be problematic up in that area. I'm sure I'll find a suitable substitute. :beerchug: :beerchug:

IIRC, you just need a photo ID, registration, and proof of insurance. They usually just check your ID against the list.

No place to plug in unless I bring the Generac.

Last year the wind didn't blow, it sucked. Cool/cold is fine, just do not need the wind.

If it's just cold and not windy, be up on the first or second line facing the water to plug in anywhere. If you remember where Roman was, that line all has power.

    :)  Approximately the same place as last year?   For those not being there before, find the camp ground for tenters  (  follow the lake front rd. east   R V camping first  then the tent area , this is almost to the end before the rd makes a hard left.. )   There are 2 bathroom buildings gray and we would be between both of them.   Did I get this right fellows?  A little help if needed.   I'll have a AMRERICAN Flag strung up between the trees.   You find that and I'm there w/others.      Hope fully be there noon-ish.   See ya there.  :great:              Alan Y.

Nah...got a smaller one now. But it's still not insulated! I am better prepared this year though.

Maybe I will bring the heater, just in case.

BUMP!  5 days!!

Swapped up the ol' humungo queen air mattress for a more 'practical' Therm-a-rest All Season in anticipation
of the not-so-warm weather in the evenings.  Did my shopping for 'essentails' today.  Looking forward to a
'mini-getaway'.  As of right now, I'm hoping to get there between 10 and 11 am.

Just hafta find some of my warmer head gear.... been a few years since I needed it.....
