Tickets in Hand


  Last we wrote I was trying to reach Penn State for tickets to the Outback Bowl on 1/1/11. Well the tickets arrived in the mail yesterday.

  We’re still in S Georgia and the weather has finally moderated. It had got down as low as 21. We have been very slow here at Reed Bingham state park. We usually only have 2 or 3 campers in overnight. There had been 3 host couples but one couple had to leave and they were suppose to be here next month also. The ranger asked us last night what our plans were for next month but we have some reservations in Florida. We couldn’t have had an easier gig. With the couple leaving we have picked up a few extra days but we don’t mind. On the 19th we’re having a potluck with the staff and there families along with the other host couple. We’ll have a quiet Christmas this year and then on the 31st we’ll head back down to Florida .


Merry Christmas

Plans Change

  Last I wrote we were headed to Fort McCoy to join fellow Escapee Boomers at a Pow Wow over Thanksgiving weekend. We had a great time. There was native Americans in attendance from all over the USA. On Thanksgiving we helped serve over 330 people. On Friday and Saturday we helped with the gate and parking. We also had pot lucks and campfires every night. We pulled out on Sunday morning and headed north to Georgia. We pulled into a campground in Brookfield Ga. to meet up with Paula’s friend from school and to rest up. On Tuesday the 30th we moved south around 30 miles to Reed Bingham state park where we’ll camphost for the next month. The days have been brisk but nice but with this current southern cold spell it’s been in the low 30’s in the morning. Yesterday we went to Lakewood Ga. to the city of murals. It’s a small Ga. town but they tell there history with murals painted on the sides of the historic buildings. We did enjoy our time there. When we leave here at the end of the month we planned on traveling west but we have decided to return to Fl for at least January.

  Last night it was announced that Penn State will play a bowl game on the 1st in Tampa. I just made campground reservations but the Penn State ticket number is constantly busy. I would like to get our tickets thru them so we’ll be with all the PSU folks but I may just have to get them thru Ticketmaster. I’ll keep trying for a little bit.
