Labor Day Plans?

Hello! Just wondering if anybody has any fun and exciting Labor Day Weekend Plans. I'd initially thought of taking the kids to one of our State Parks but then came to my senses the more I thought about the traffic and crowds, lol. There is a "Teacher in Service" Day the very next friday after Labor Day so I'll probably take the kids for that 3 day weekend instead. Cant wait for it to cool down some and FL camping season to get nice. We'll be limited to Private Camgrounds when the snowbirds arrive but it's better than nothing. T@Bitha looks lonely at the storage facility, need to show her some love.

Let's hear all about those weekend plans!

Melissa

We'll not go anyplace except to our local volunteer fire dept fund raising breakfast on Saturday. Since we retired (eons ago) we normally don't plan on going anywhere unless it's to visit our son, his wife, and kids in Indianapolis. This year that'll be the following weekend.

Mile High Campground, elevation...wait for it...5,280 feet...onna mountain ridge above the Cherokee Indian Reservation in the Great Smokey Mountains.

Hoping for at least one glorious sunset from our western facing site on the ridge.

Since it's semi-primitive camping, we'll be giving the new group 27 deep cycle battery and yet to arrive LED's the once through.

We'll probably "Stay-cation" at home. I've been busy (really busy) knocking out my "Honey-Do" list that rivals some of the youngsters' Santa Claus lists for length. I got into trouble for focusing on the trailer's list before the Oregon Gathering in July at the expense of the House list, and must make amends before the Lake Casitas trip.

Labor Day weekend will be spent cleaning and organizing the Scamp getting ready for Fall camping season here in S. FL. Preparing for 3 day weekend Sept. 10 @ Curry Hammock State Park in Florida Keys. AS melissa said, we take advantage of park vacancies now because the availability is severely limited in the winter months.
We have never been to the nearby Curry Hammock SP and actually discovered it thru a posting here on FGRV submitted by A Canadian member.

Interesting that folks in Florida are just gearing up to start camping season, while up here in BC camping season is starting to wind down. For the Labour Day weekend, we are heading over to the 'Sunshine Coast' (north of Vancouver) to Porpoise Bay Provincial Park - leaving midweek to beat the Friday rush for the ferry. We're looking forward to a relaxing 6 days there.

Labor day weekend

Cleaning the Casita, washing the outside and waxing the outside. Does anybody have a Belt Sander I can use to get the bugs off the front?????????????

Then we can see how many bugs will be there when we get to Eggfest.

That made me laugh! I understand that line of thinking.

We are going to pick up our "new" Bigfoot 5th wheel. It should be an adventure because the axles have to be flipped before we can tow it. Finding this trailer is putting a crimp on the kitchen remodel we are in the process of doing. BUT when this trailer showed up for sale we couldn't say "no"...even if the timing was horrible! So now our time will have to be divided between trailer and kitchen! I'm even more exhausted contemplating it!
