Howdy. I live a mile or so from the chosen location so I guess I'm a good local contact. Here are some photos (and I'll try to link a YouTube video) of the cabins. The aren't hotel quality but they are clean and critter free. Per night: Singles go for $44, doubles for $65, and triples for $78. Singles have a main bed and a fold out couch. Triples have three rooms and a fold out couch. All cabins have kitchens.
A friend of mine has chartered bass fishing trips out of Richardsons Fish camp for a very long time. He is also networked in with several other captains if you'd like to charter a fishing trip. Air boat rides are about seven miles away too. Pm me if you'd like more info.

I'm guessing anyone who is coming is going to make their own arrangements with the fish camp. I'm setting up a cabin for myself today.

Hope to see some of you guys there.

Just starting my research into what type of smoker to build, it will be my first.
I'm less than an hour away so hopefully I can stop by.

Tri_slarson,

Being that close to this event with these guys to speak with is like living in San Francisco and not seeing the Golden Gate Bridge or the Statue of Liberty in New York. You can be guaranteed to come away with an education on smokers you couldn't buy.

Have fun but...that will just happen anyway

I hope some of the local members show up. I'll have my trailer rig there and my boat. I know we will have some good "Q".

So RC can you see if we can just rent once we get there? Or should we reserve something in advanced?

You can do that DC, I think they'll have some spots. Even if they don't there's hotels not far away. I have a place there so my smoker will be there for sure.

Yes and your buddy from Jacksonville said he would try but keep him in the loop. Gizmo said he might be able but it would be hard to say for sure. I also have a neighbor who bought plans that will be visiting. And a few recruits, I've been working on.

Are you close enough to make two trailer trips RC or is there water access from where the boat is to this site? Is this fresh water or salt?
