Keith,

The Lake Cabins have nice quiet coves around them. I'll try to take a GPS. If you can't zoom in maybe we can give numbers. But, I think we have 6 or 7 of the cabins. I'll bet we can come up with a shower, etc..

Gathering Committment

Postby Tom Drake » Sun Oct 14, 2007 6:16 am

Hey Guys,
I now have a pretty good understanding of the food and beverage plans for the big event, but what will be the prescribed ( or recommended) proceedure upon arriving at the State Park with a boat ? Tina (wife) and I will arrive Friday AM and can help out if there is to be a registration. I'm spring loaded on ready to help out.

Great question Tom.

Hey, you guys that have been to Gunersville...what do we have to do ? Anything ? or just pull up and go? I have a cabin (I think :o ) So I guess i can just pull mine up to the cabin...all of its nine feet.

But are there any special circumstances we need to know about? If we dont get a response here I will call the gals at the state park and inquire.,

Steve,

I don't know of any "Special Requirements". I think anything in the water is fair game. If a few people will PM me with cell phone numbers, I'll put a contact list for people needing last minute info. or direction. I just put my GPS in the bag and I can give numbers once we're there.

The phone list I'll include mine. But, it's my work phone and it's out of our territory. So, I don't know about coverage.

For anyone (like me!) who this may affect, T-Mobile looks like it will only have spotty coverage in the park, with your best shot at a signal being at (or on) the water:

BTW, white is no signal; dark green is good.

We dropped Sprint because it was non-functional in most places in the park. We now use AT&T Cingular which seems to always be there but marginal.

The cabins have their own launch ramp but it's not a very big one. I've seen 24' poontons launched there but I wouldn't use it for a heavy, deep draft hull.

In the above map, there's a little pucker in the shoreline of the park, due East of the 227 marker on the highway. That's where the ramp is. That water is fairly deep but narrow.
Enough youth, now how 'bout a fountain of SMART!

Well now your scaring me. Even IF I do get the boat done, there aint enough water for me to launch it?
Right now, I got a fair chance of doing sea trials at the Park.

I'm sure the main ramp has plenty of water.

The ramp at the Lake Cabins is small. But, at the main ramp you can back a semi-rig in there.

Gunterville State Park

Postby Bud_Wilson » Sun Oct 14, 2007 8:03 pm

Gunterville State park campground has two good big ramps with walk outdock and parking. I would think we can launch any thing that is considered trailor sailor size there. We are going to have the gathering at the camp ground right? Bud :)

Bud,

Saturday, I think we should be near the main public area the boat ramp near the Beach Pavilion. But, I have the Lake Cabin Pavilion, Friday and Saturday. This allows us not to try to feed the world and be able to talk to each other.

The drought

Postby steve crawford » Tue Oct 16, 2007 2:41 pm

Isn't the drought over in Georgia spread back that way at all? Atlanta is not that far away. I saw their reservoir and all the docks way up on land ,that is a bad situation....................

Here is the deal ...Georgians are morons..Alabamians arent as stupid as the jokes make them out to be:

Georgia water is controlled by Army Corp of Engineers (some of the most rediculous decisions in the world have come out of that group of people)

ALabama BUYS (some) of their water from Georgia !!!

I think Alabama waters are control by the TVA ...seems that Alabama has plenty of water !!

NO excuse for why Georgia has not been drilling commercial wells. Marietta has all of its water in surface water ...the most easily contaminated (either accidentally or intentionally!!!) water source available.

So alabama drinks our water and boats on their own lakes and rivers and toasts to us while they are doing it !!!

Steve

Oh, and we are trying to keep the water up in some place in Flordia because of some endangered snail or something.

Here in Savannah, we been flooded most of the summer. Had a drought winter/spring, then from June on, we had unrelentless rain. One weekend alone was 16". Couple weeks ago we had a 10" rain one weekend. Then we have periodic rains in between. We been soaked down here. Recently a beaver got road killed escaping the deluge.
