Camphosting again at Ft. Yargo

File this under the oddities of camphosting. A group of campers found some sapplings left over from trimming along the trails. They brought them back to their campsite and, because the sapplings were too green to burn, they spent the rest of the afternoon building this Tee Pee. The downside to this was that they dismantled the Tee Pee and left everything in a pile for the camphost to clean up.

Happy New Year

2007 slipped quietly away, and very quickly it seems. We started this blog just a little over a year ago and although we're not very regular in our postings, we hope you enjoy our blog.

We had a eventful week. We left Watson Mill Bridge State Park on Monday, New Years Eve and drove over to Ft. Yargo to begin our hosting duties here. Hosts Ed and Gail left just today, Wednesday but we expect to see them hosting in the near future.

On Thursday, Jan. 3, Nancy has to go in for rotator cuff surgery on her right shoulder. It is outpatient surgery so we'll be home the same day. The surgery will only take an hour or so but the recovery period including physical therapy will take 3 or 4 months.

Winter has finally arrived. It is freeeeezing. Last night was in the low 20's with the high today at 38. Tonight it is supposed to get into the teens. Brrr!
