Appalachicola I

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

Friday was a beautiful day and we had nothing else planned so on the spur of the moment we decided to go to Appalachicola which is 52 miles southeast of here by way of Mexico Beach and Port St Joe. You will be seeing more of Appalachicola but this is the main street.


Friday night we went to the Gazebo after hot dog night(yep it is lent again). John and Ray played lots of country


Town Meeting

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

The LtCol in charge of base services came to the Recreation Center to listen to and address concerns. The Campground is well run but there is always room for improvement. The meeting was well received by all and good information was exchanged.

The campers here are a patriotic bunch and are proud to show the flag as well as indications of their branch of service.





Fifth Day of the Dance

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

Down to 1st on the list for a site. Hot water is still out (since Friday). Base Maintenance must not have heard about Home Depot. No cold water either. I heard that a camper forgot to disconnect his water hose before he pulled away. That at least should be fixed today.

Rt 96 goes right down the middle of Tyndall AFB. The FamCamp is between Rt 96 and Pearl Bayou below.

2nd Day of the Dance

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

This should have gone out yesterday  but somehow I must have saved it as a draft. Well here it is.

Before they started using the new overflow sites basically those in overflow were squeezed into two files of 4 campers each and everyone had to move forward each day. What a pain. Now we get an overflow site and stay there until we get a non sewer site. I do miss the opportunity to chat with overflow neighbors each morning to see how many times they got up to turn the circuit breakers back on. But I do not miss it all that much. We were 8th on the list for a site yesterday and now we are 6th. The hot water tank leaked and now there is no hot water (for showers) in the Rec Hall until Monday. The inclination is to blame base maintenance but they probably can’t get whatever they need over the weekend.

Last night we went to the Gazebo for the Friday night hot dog roast. Bring your own hot dogs everything else is there. Guess this is the last one until after Lent for us anyway. Later three of the campers got out guitars (plus John also brought his Fiddle) and they played for the 25 or so of us who were there. Good time. I really wanted to sing but I thought that it was more important not to drive everyone away.
