"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Green Eggs and Ham Gathering
Back in November of 2010, a guy posted a question on the Casita Club Forum. Anyone like to get together for a few days somewhere in the Southeast part of the Country? Maybe over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend. He got a couple of affirmative comments and a campground was agreed upon when the number reached six or so. It then took on a life of its own. There were 42 registered trailers in March of 2011. Move forward a year and there were 52 registered rigs for 2012.
Some of us arrived early to get a head start on the visiting and eating. We had small pancake breakfasts,
and a Chili Dump at our campsite. Bring a can or pot of homemade chili and dump it in. Though it sounded awful, it tasted really good. Not a drop left in the pot.
We had birthday parties, and lots of visiting all week.
Chicken and sausage gumbo on Thursday,
catered BBQ on Friday, and the tailgate potluck on Saturday. As the pavilion was kind of small, everyone with a pickup just backed up toward it and the spread was placed on all the tailgates. Worked like a charm.
There was also musical entertainment most every night. Really wish I could play an instrument.
We had a St. Patrick's Day parade with many getting in on the fun.
As you can see, it was a great week with friends, old and new. And did I mention the food?
A friend took some really great pictures that can be seen here...
We are already looking forward to next year. More on the local area in a later post…jc
