Dear Annd

For us Kentucky hillbillies please in the future do not refer to North or South but say, Up and Down , just the way it is on the map.

Thank you,
Bob K

But... how will you know whether I mean down in the holler or down in the 'Glades? I know. If I mean down in the holler, I'll just say, OK which side is your longer leg on? Go that way. (All Kentuckians have one leg longer than the other, right? So they can stand up straight in the hills? At least that's the way I heard the story.)

Well, as you have probably guessed, that stunningly witty repartee was not written by old dull, dry "Guest", but rather by that irrepressible wag....

Everglades City camping info - RVers must read

Postby Paul MacCartney » Tue Dec 06, 2005 11:37 pm

Hello all,

You don't need to make any reservations if you're tent camping. If you're going to RV it, contact me with your expected dates. We have limited RV space in the Festival Area. We'd like to keep a count so we can get overflow space if necessary.

When:
Jan 28th through Feb 5th or any parts therein.

Where:
Trail Lakes Camp Ground, Festival Area - private space for Folbot Flotillians
Drive east of Everglades City on 41 until you see it (it's east of Ochopee too).

Tents:
No reservations necessary. Just pay the owner (Dave) $7 per night.

RVs:
Make reservation with Paul (send me an e-mail). Once there, pay the owner (Dave) $7 per night (which includes electricity).

It seems like it couldn't be simpler...

' thought you maybe were showing some vintage films the old way. If so, I was thinking about bringing a couple of movies from my junk heap. Don't know if I am even coming, yet.

Don't throw them in the junk heap! I love 'older footage' of the glades. If there's any way you could convert them to DVD or VHS, my system will play them. Unfortunately, those are the only formats I'm rigged for.
