    My husband is in the infantry, after he came back in March, they made him a drill sergeant. My oldest is going to military academy this coming fall at NGCSU. Knowing all I know about the infantry, I'm just glad my kid is going to be a CO and not an NCO. I could have lost my husband, and just happy I don't have to worry too much about that. Your story about going down the river was interesting as it sounded a lot like stuff I heard all the time. Sorry if this went off topic, but some of the stories are a real wild hair.

    Okay, so when is the next meeting? I am kinda busy, but could try and make time to meet up with yall. I live in St. Cloud (1 year) and moved here from Tallahassee. I am not quite familiar with the area and the vast amounts of toll roads (not a reality in North Florida).

    Well, 5 people voted on the poll, 3 wanted May 8th but if that date doesn't work out, being so close to SW weekends, we can always push it up a weekend or two. So is this our first, non-library get together besides cons?
    Should be fun!!

    Not necessarily true- hey I am becoming the chapter historian!! There was a get together for AOTK in May 2002 at Pleasure Island. There was also a cook out in I think August of 2002- that was right before the Melbourne/Orlando split. Oddly enough- the cookout was at Wickham park in Melbourne. This how ever is the best recent history I can pull together in the time I have been in. But with the current gathering of misfits we have now- it is.

    A cookout. Now that sounds like fun. Can we somehow merge that into the canoe trip?

    Just not sushi, blue milk & brownies. Although it was delicious, I'm sure we can think up of a better menu this time.

    I'm thinking small bbq cooker- hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken and polish sausage! All easy to cook! Bring some Dr. Pepper and ice maybe some kind of dessert and Voila! We have a fantastic bbq! I've had some practice with these. Or we could bring alcohol too.. but must you seem of the non-alcoholic type which is cool- I don't wanna see someone get into a head on collision with a tree stump in the water.

    Honestly Ia thinking of what type activity we are proposing and imagine with your minds eye what best would be the meal of choice? If you still think sushi please poke that eye. Who voted sushi?

    someone go to Costco and grab some hot dogs and hamburgers, hamburger buns, hotdg buns, soda, and cups. And some ice. Everyone bring like 5 bucks each and pay the buyer. My idea.

    Oh behave, I don't think it was a bad idea. It's always hard to make sure everyone brings what is needed. Someone might not show up and they were responsible for cups or something. This way you know the necessary things are being brought all at once and if you want to bring something special you can.
    We're months away and can work out the details some other time.
    In the meantime, Ruckus, since you seem to have some experience with this, do you know if we need to reserve the canoes ahead?

    If anything I say at the next meeting everyone give money to the one person we want to do the shopping. That way the person doesnt spend 50$ and only 4 people show up. Spend 50$ get back 20$? Bad idea. If everyone chips in before hand, then we kind of know what to get, plus we already have the budget. That way no one loses out, and if after you pay and back out then its your loss. Thats my 1 cents, because two cents just isnt worth anything nowadays.

    I was going to nominate Campbell to be the "buyer", especially since he has the maturity sash but then I remembered he's a vegetarian . We'd probably end up with veggie burgers & soy dogs or something. eww :p
    I can go to BJ's and get burgers, h. dogs, plates, sodas, etc in bulk, pretty reasonably priced. I won't mind being the shopper as long as people chip in.

    HAAHAHAHAHA!!! You talking about Bartles and Jaymes?
    HAHAHA!

    Remember that Saturday Night skit with John Goodman as Linda Tripp?

    Anywho... from what I recall- I think our best bet is to launch from Kings Landing, which I believe is off Kelly Springs road in Apopka.
    HEY!! LOOKIE WHAT I FOUND...

    http://members.aol.com/kingslndng/

    TO learn more about where I am talking about.

    I don't believe you need a reservation they have like 30 canoes. But I have lots o' fond memories of Kelly Springs and the Wekiwa River, heck I remember it by its bastardized name Wekiva River. I am gonna email the owner to learn more- I will post my findings in a later post. Just emailed them.

    Kings Landing is where I used to launch from back in the day as a Boy Scout. Yes, I know hard to believe.

    Myself and several friends are planning on going on a canoeing trip in May and we are intrested in starting from King's Landing. Do we need to make any kind of reservation and besides the per canoe fee what else is needed to rent a canoe? Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
    ====================================
    Donna is usually at the canoe shack 'in person' from 9-12 weekdays... 407-886-0859... call and tell her whay day you'll be there and what time (before 12!) and she'll have em ready for you. There's a machine on that phone after hours too. Jusy come on out and bring a picnic lunch maybe. Takes about 4 hrs to paddle 8mi down to the marina. We pickup in our van and bring you back to King's Landing.

    shall we vote on the canoe trip and buyer? Or can we all agree on cambell beign our buyer. I think he, although a vegetarian, can make the right food choices. Send me options and I will set up a pole...there are too many posts to keep track of so im going crazy keeping up with everyone :p
