    But you forgot about the well that is next to the septic tank and can't figure out why the water smells like sh.. Lucky for me i have all three ears and 6 fingers on each hand.

    Not here at the house I grew up in, but a house I rented for three years. Big, lush grass in rows over the perforated sewage pipe. I don't think it even had a septic tank, IIRC. Thirty feet away, the well. I have no recollection of its depth. The sulfur smell masked anything, um, organic.

    I'm still cleaning up the mess from TS Fay. After the 1st of year is good for me. Maybe we can put some thought into workshop(s) for the get together.

    Btw, there is a good exhibit at Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona Beach. Lee Dunkel's Florida Wetlands is an APUG-friendly exhibit (silver gelatin prints) that is worth seeing - very interesting high-contrast images.

    I'd prefer the winter if only for the weather. OTOH, accomodations will be harder to come by and more expensive. Perhaps some non-touristy place like Arcadia would be over here. I'm NOT suggesting Arcadia, just an example.

    Sounds fine to me. I understand completely about family problems. Take as long as you need as far as I'm concerned - I'll still meet wherever everyone thinks is a good spot.

    The point about hotel cost in season is something I forgot about. since season end 1st of May maybe by then we can get together for a real APUG grouping. Till then if anyone is going on any weekender let me know I'm looking to do some after the FSU football season.

    I think weather (i.e. cooler and drier) during the winter is a bigger plus factor than the negative of spending more on accomodations. In fact, that would make camping a possibility.

    Camping - great idea. I haven't done that since leaving Virginia 20 years ago. Need to get tent that fits my truck - don't like idea of sleeping on the ground in Florida.

    Only problem with sleeping on the ground compared to my Boy Scout days here is now it is SO hard to get up off of the ground!

    On a more serious note, consider a cot. That's what I'll have, prolly. Got a sturdy oversized one on eBay four years ago for maybe forty dolla. I sold or gave away my tents in Colorado but I have all the other hardware. BTW, it snowed the other day in the mountains. Made me homesick when I heard that.
