We had talked about a poker run type event. Is that still the plan?

04-17-2008, 01:43 PM
As of right now the The Ga Jam will be on the south end of the lake .I'm still waitng on permits. Lake levels are good for now. Big Creek and Shoal Creek ramps are open . As soon as the permits are granted I will create a website with all the details guys. There is camping available at Lake Lanier islands and a bunch of other parks around the lake.

05-07-2008, 09:44 AM
looking forward to it, anybody else camping?

05-14-2008, 02:34 PM
OK, Stacy talked me into at least one reunion this summer if not 3 before its all said and done. I'm camping with the boss and kids on Fri. and Sat. night. I reserved right by you guys. Anybody bringing kids? If so, I have at least one or two their age. Just so you guys know, my wife is not exactly an outdoors type so make sure you tease her real good. HA HA HA. She's a good sport and lots of fun though. I am truly blessed.

05-14-2008, 02:39 PM
Are there any cabins for rent in that area?

05-14-2008, 02:59 PM
I was looking for cabins but nothing came up at Shoal Creek and I don't know the area so I decided we'd "rough" it. I haven't camped in so long I'm going to have to borrow some gear. We've had an infant so often my wife would never go for it. Now that the youngest is a little bigger she's not so scared. Anybody that wants to post a list of recommended gear (other than boat stuff) please do so as I know I'm going to forget something.

05-14-2008, 08:16 PM
my wife is also not the most outdoorsy type-so she lets me do all the cooking and cleaning-she just feels kinda out of her element-i really dont mind-she helps with what i need when asked.

this is our first time at this camp ground also, we have been staying at old federal in the years past

my list that i can think of now-i know its not everthing but...

easy up shelter=shade/rain cover for camp table
light weight sleeping bags-the ones we use are kinda like heavy towels-like a kids slumber party sleeping bags, got them at target, we can still zip two together and real pillows
air bed-not the cheesy pool thing--actual queen sized-sleep's cooler being up a little off the ground, better than the lumpy ground
jumbo mat (bath mat) for the entrance to tent-keeps it cleaner inside
rope=clothes dryer
single burner propane stove
utensiles for cooking but i keep it as simple as possible, tongs,spatula,knife
medium skillit pan-can cook in and use for hot dish water
baby wipes,paper towels
tub to keep dry foods in(buns,bread...)--damn chipmunks got ours last time
solar recharable yard lights keeps the camp site lit all night--both good and bad
fire extingisher
fire starter--presto log
smores=happy kids
bug spray
2 times the normal towels you normally use
water container-not for drinking but rinsing hands/doing dishes-we use one of those solar water heater shower things
flash lite for each person
folding chair for each person
flip flops -can wear into the showers--and one nice thing the rest rooms have allways been clean for us

anybody else ???

most of all

what time is it?

05-14-2008, 08:41 PM
My wife WILL NOT rough camp and to tell the truth I'm not too excited about trying to do it with a 2 1/2 year old. If anybody knows of cabins near the site please chime in.

05-14-2008, 11:08 PM
My wife may never do it again. Oh well.

Stacy, that's some list. At least 7-8 things I didn't even think of-- like the drying line. Glad I have time to plan this.

05-15-2008, 07:51 AM
we actually make the smores and then put them on the bbq-crunchy crust and melted chocolate---super messy and good.

Ed is right about the hammock--ive used mine everytime we go camping--when my daughter was 3 or so and we went camping the 1st time, she had a hard time sleeping so we both got on the hammock and she fell asleep---nothing better

we dont bring any electronics into camp sites---listen to nature--best music ever

05-15-2008, 09:41 AM
Yup, there's a stereo in the boat for the daytime. I enjoy the night sounds. Now that I'm thinking about it I really miss it. Used to do it all the time as a kid. This could be a new beginning for the family. We could turn into . . . . .

Don't say it!

Happy Campers!

05-15-2008, 03:30 PM
Thanks, Ed. I heard about that place for the first time only in the last two weeks or so. I'm glad to hear your recommendation b/c it sounded real good to me. I don't know if the wife will go for it just yet but we'll see once we she gets away from it all a time or two. She does love the beach. If not, me and the boys will definitely have to head over there.

On thing about the panhandle area is we are close to lots of great camp sites from the FL springs to the Gulf coast to the Atlantic coast to parts of GA and AL. If I can get the Mrs. going on this we've got a lot to choose from.

05-15-2008, 08:07 PM
shoal creek is right around the corner where i have my slip... cool campground.. for those who cant camp there are cabins at holiday marina if i am not mistaken, as well as the cabins at lake lanier islands....

05-16-2008, 07:06 AM
Ed, glad to hear it

yes bring the boards

05-16-2008, 10:32 AM
This is sounding better and better. I'm really looking forward to it.

05-16-2008, 11:05 AM
Ed, plenty of room in the truck bed for boards-just let me know

Kane is correct-this is sounding like a good time

friday night -beach bonfire if its allowed


05-16-2008, 07:04 PM

05-16-2008, 07:11 PM

05-19-2008, 01:20 PM

I just reserved Shoal Creek site 69. It is a little bit of a boat ride from Shoal Creek to Aqualand Marina but it shouldnt be too bad.

Does everyone want to try and get together Friday night?

05-21-2008, 07:55 AM
if i remember correctly it should take less than 20 minutes by boat to get to aqualand. Ed you are more than welcome to hitch a ride.

everyone staying at shoal creek bring some firewood for the bonfire friday night

swamp, aqualand looks like a kinda big marina-will it be easy to find what dock to go to from the water

also suggest getting some hopity hops from toys r us to use a boat bumpers-this is what im using


05-21-2008, 10:38 AM
Saw in another thread mention of the hoppity hops. I guess they work great. Good idea Stacy to bring firewood for Fri. night. Should be lots of fun.

05-21-2008, 11:32 AM
guess i wont need to bring any ballast if youve got a ton of gear, hey will my boat still float?

will the boards fit in my racks?--stock moomba racks that is. i know the cwb ride fits

Swamp Buggy
05-21-2008, 01:27 PM
You are completely correct about the size of Aqualand. It is actually dubbed as the world's largest inland marina.

I am not too sure what Tim has planned for alerting people to the exact location but I will make sure to mention that something is definitely needed.

I think this is going to be a great time and I can't wait. Ed, I am going to need some lessons.......
