We got back to FDR last Tuesday (the 20th) and have been just taking it easy around the park this past week. One of the hosts (a single lady) has been gone all week so we have taken over the hosts duties including checking the bathrooms, raking some pine straw from the sites and cleaning out any fire pits as needed.

Today Sam went to the maintenance shop and split some wood to bundle and sell. The other host couple left this morning and the single lady is leaving tomorrow so we will be here by ourselves, as hosts, until the second host couple arrives on Friday. We are expecting a full campground every weekend in October and probably November also. Thanksgiving week is a sell out, too.

Tonight I drove about 45 minutes to Newnan, GA, to meet my BFF and have dinner at the Olive Garden. We met 40 years ago, in summer of 1971. Wowee.....time flies! Sam stayed behind this time in case anyone needed to buy firewood and we are the only ones in the campground for now. He said he sold 3 bundles!

Tomorrow or Thursday we will move into the host spot in the 500 circle. I'll get some pictures posted later this week.

We visited Georgia a couple of years ago and we fell in love with the place. The name of the town escapes me right now, but I know it was in the mountains. Hope you are liking your camp hosting job.
