Just give Ruth a call at the park to add a night. Even with 2 dump sites it will still be a backup as over 100 campers will be leaving on Tuesday, that doesn't include the tent campers. Take a look at the reservation site for Tuesday night and you will see you can have your choice of about any campsite in the park. I was prepared to move to another site if necessary but there was no problem. BTW there is a YouTube video that shows every campsite in the park also, and the campsitephotos web site has a lot of campsite photos of many of the state parks in Georgia (and other states). Just use the filter to search it out.

When does school start down your way. I don't know when it starts in Paulding County but Cobb is going to start July 31st, a lot of people not very happy about that. Hell, why don't they just go year around.

Fayette County students return Aug 7. Teachers return July 31. Note that a lot of schools, depending on where they are, will be closed Aug 21 to see the eclipse.

Our 40th wedding anniversary is August 6th. For years there was a week or two before school started and we could always do something fun on our anniversary. Then the calendar began encroaching on our day. Sweet Wife has just changed jobs and is no longer teaching music. Now she is the Music Ministry Administrator at out church. Much happier. And we can enjoy our anniversary again.

Speaking of wedding anniversaries DW & I will celebrate 57 years the day we arrive at the campground, Aug 17th. Celebrate may be a strong word, we celebrate by having a Pepsi and watching TV.

Good deal on not teaching at least for now. SIL was a music teacher at a large high school in Iowa and then took a position as Director of Vocal Music at the Community College where BIL was Director of Buildings and Grounds for numerous campus locations for the college also. She is also choir director at her church and still involved with judging music competition. Both are retired now.

You'd never guess what Sweet Wife wanted for an anniversary gift:

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cub-Cadet...3310/205427964

Ordered it today. Free pick up at the store. It weighs over 200 pounds, plus the crate it comes in. I have no idea how I'm going to unload it when I get it home.

But isn't that the most romantic thing? Almost like the time I got her a tiller for her birthday.

I think she was just afraid to tell you to get off your butt and clean up the grounds so this is a trap she set for you. Happy Anniversary. As to the unloading, just drop the tailgate and slide it off. Some assembly required. You have a son and BIL to help.

I probably missed half of my anniversaries, either on the road for business (I was a regional sales manager covering most of the east coast) or just plain forgot. As an example I have over 4.5 million miles looking out the windshield.

Hey, Happy Anniversary to you, too, Wade. You and she seem to be feeling very chipper.

Got this from another forum on how the eclipse will look at your location.
