You've been given a lot of great info already and there's not much I can add. The Grove Park would be fantastic, but I'm not sure if you could find anything there for your stated top-end price of $150 a night. Maybe... and they do offer package deals which vary in price depending on the time and season you go.

Everything up here is cheaper if you can come up mid-week for a few days instead of including weekend time.

Are you meeting Wednesday? Sounds like great fun!
Softball practices and tennis matches are now in season so I'm not sure if we can swing it-life gets so busy with "older" kids....just wait. BUT, it's all good.
Let me know when! I have a new stamp I just carved to commerate Buzzard Day, March 15. I haven't decided what to do with it yet, so it COULD just be a personal traveler for this week......
Also, Historic Moss Chapel clues are FINALLY posted!!
Aren't you glad spring is in the air???

You know spring is nearby when you get the first wasp sting of the year!
Ouch!! I stepped on a sleepy wasp on my bedroom floor this morning! He should have stayed outside-now he's swimming in my septic tank!!

For all those who have patiently waited and asked. Historic Moss Chapel clues are now posted. I included the original stamp (my 2nd stamp and carved with an exacto knife) and a new stamp as well.
Also, there may be another box VERY nearby too-just do your research!! ;)
Happy Hunting!

You also know spring is fast approaching when you go for a walk and are attacked by bloodthirsty ticks! At least they're the big ones that you can actually feel walking on you as opposed to the macroscopic babies...

TICK TIP:

The fastest way to remove ticks is with clear packing tape.

It's sticky enough to catch every little nasty bugger it can grab a hold of, but it's not so sticky that it'll take the hair off your legs.

DON'T try this with duct tapeā€”that'll tear your skin off!

I'm hoping to have a couple more planted this month! I'm in the process of carving one now ( well, not NOW... ), and have been looking for just the right image for the other! I'm hoping to go hunting for planting sites this week!

Who all will be at Cane Creek Park Friday evening?? If others are planning to eat dinner there, maybe we could all share a shelter and meet and greet early while we eat our own grub. Any takers???

I'll be out there Friday night. I'm not sure about dinner yet, but I could look into places to eat. I don't know Waxhaw well, so if others know of something pipe up-- otherwise, I'll check it out.

Anyone that is doing McDowell on a separate day let me know and I'll give you some tips to maximize your time. E-mail me off list.

Tent construction is certainly a possibility, just make sure you have directions. I can get lost in a paper sack. And I second the cootie non-promise by shoafsters.

I heard there was a Captain's Galley in Waxhaw that may be nice to eat at Friday night. Everyone like or not like fish? I'm the human garbage disposal (if it's food, it's good) and my kids aren't picky either so anything is good with me. Maybe a later dinner-- 7pm or so? That way there is time for tent set ups. Then return back to camp for a campfire?

We will probably be there Friday (staying Friday night). I'm debating staying Saturday night (arriving on Saturday morning for the event, rather than Friday), so as to do a little additional boxing on Sunday. But then I'd miss the Palm Sunday luncheon at the Greek Church - a not-to-be-missed event......!! Food v. Letterboxing - normally not a hard choice - 'boxing would win every time...... except for the Greek church lunches........ sigh...............

My only concern is the whole "gate closing" issue the reservation lady talked about.

We have to get there Thursday by 5:30 or we can't get in the gate. I can't remember the gate times for Fri/Sat.

No, I'm not coming now. *sob*

My son decided that he'd rather take a course in Advanced Math that starts that day.

I'm having trouble deciding whether to be grumpy or proud...

Nope. Husband's out of town and my plans for my mom to watch my youngest fell through.

Ummm... that is a problem. I think my head might explode.

Of course, there is always the Southern Highlands for you, though what I have planned will have lost some of the elements of surprise... *sigh*

I guess I'll have to start thinking about a new "target". *looking around* Hey, look! Isn't that the Florys and Mama Fox? MUHAHAHAHA.... *cough,cough* I mean... nice to see you again! *grin*
And then there is Sweet and Sour and Shoalsters who were going to "harbor" you in their cabin.... There's a pretty good list of unsuspecting first timers at a gathering.... Oh, look! CDG, Electric City Four, and Katwrangler! That group is always asking for trouble...

Decisions, decisions... Oh, Knit Wit, we are soooooo going to miss you! Yep, I think everyone is really missing you. *grin*

My soul feels strangely lightened about the prospect of missing the gathering... Amazing how Mama Wolf always knows the right thing to say.

I'll be thinking of you all on that day--those I know and those I don't. All Mama Wolf's potential victims *cough, cough* I mean boxing buddies!

It certainly would have been awesome to meet you and your son, but there will always be other meets.

I can say that's a big decision to make
